- Beetroot salad
- An apple
- A banana (I was flagging)
- ½ cup mixed sunflower and pumpkin seeds
- 1 litre of carrot juice, made using my nut milk bag
- Sweetheart cabbage rolls stuffed with sweet potato and avocado dip.
- Cranberry and elderflower tea
- Apple and ginger tea
- Green tea (of course), and…
- …BANCHA tea, all the way from Japan. (Today was a good day for tea. )
10:30 Had a salad for breakfast this morning! It was lovely though. Mixed leaves, beetroot, apple and celery with shredded carrots and cabbage. That along side a jug of beautiful Bancha tea – yup, I was happy.
15:00 Left it too long before I ate something. I was in the centre Brighton and on my way to see the lads at EkoUk. I was flagging. I’d not come prepared. There was only one thing for it – I needed a banana. So I went to Sainsbury’s and bought one along with an apple – ate them and felt a lot better. I do think this was just what my body needed. It’s important not to get silly when doing ‘detox’s’ or ‘cleanses’. If you’re Hank Marvin, and you need to eat – but by eating you are afraid you’ll ruin your cleanse – just have a think and be sensible. I would rather eat a piece of fruit and risk going against the ‘rules’ of a detox, than not have one and faint.
15:30 Got to Shoreham-by-Sea but still felt hungry. Went into a fruit shop but didn’t buy fruit funnily enough, I bought a pack of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and ate them. They weren’t soaked, so I made sure to chew them extremely well. Again, felt much better after snacking on these.
19:00 Got home and was in desperate need of a juice. I don’t have any of my equipment with me down here yet, all I have is a small personal blender and a nut milk bag. I’d not made a juice in my personal blender yet, and I had all those chantry carrots that needed eating, so I decided to juice them along with some fresh ginger and lemon, like so (sorry for poor picture quality!) –
Ta – daaa!
20:00 A lovely raw dinner of Sweetheart Cabbage Rolls again, stuffed with Sweet Potato and Avocado Dip, and a few slice baby plum tomatoes.
22:00 Got a bit desperate for something sweet again. I seem to be struggling with this time of night the moment. I really did get desperate though, as I ended up make a little bit of porridge with water, ginger and a couple of tsp’s of Green & Blacks organic cocoa. Mmm (not).
