The End!

We've made it to the cleansing finish line! "Hip, hip, hooray.. the super readers save the day!" Ok, so that had nothing to do with this but it's from one of my beloved daughter's favorite cartoons.

For today's lunch we had all sorts of sauteed veggies (onions, mushrooms, carrots, peppers, olives, zucchini, squash & although it's technically a fruit- tomatoes) mixed with pasta and sun dried vinaigrette dressing. I was proud of that dish 'cus it was goood. Our afternoon smoothie was Strawberry, kiwi & banana. For dinner we had the Spice soup that simmered all day. It was pretty darn good. The Hubster was very impressed. To make it spicy the recipe calls for you to brown these little dried red peppers in oil then drain the oil and use it to sautee onions and mushrooms. I let the peppers brown a little too long, even though I was warned not too, so our soup was a little bit VERY spicy. Oh, and it made a ton! Definitely freezing a couple of batches. If you'll notice, we didn't have breakfast. Well, I had a couple of handfuls of nuts and raisins and my fake coffee. We went to the grocery store this morning to get some items for the soup and by the time we got back it was time to get lunch going. Missed out on some bran cereal.. oh darn!

I'm anxious to write about the cleansing experience and how I feel about it and throw some pros and cons together but it's just not going to happen tonight, sorry Charlie.

I need to go get ready for bed so I can drag my butt to the gym for some early morning running and yoga. Best of all I need to get my rest for what will probably be one of the best breakfasts I have ever had!!

I went to the pantry today for a snack and grabbed nuts....because of you! See the positive influence you're having!!! Hey, and guess what? My dad had to go to the hospital this week with cellulitis in his ankle, probably from a bug bite too. He's on antibiotics too. Weird eh?
