My body’s been in kind of a funk lately. So I’m starting a cleanse. (Don’t worry, I won’t have to drink concoctions that taste like nail polish remover and starve myself of anything that resembles food.) I’ve always thought I eat pretty well. But looking at all the foods that are off limits during this cleanse, makes me realize it’s a good idea to get rid of the junk I’ve been putting in my body.
Plus, I kind of like the challenge.
For 21 days I won’t be drinking ANY coffee or soda. None. Considering I start each morning with a giant cup of glorious caffeinated deliciousness (and get a headache at promptly 1:23PM if I don’t), this will be the biggest adjustment.
I will also be avoiding wheat, dairy, sugar, and eggs. (I can have these things once per week.)
However, From A to Pink won’t be turning into a food blog, I just thought it might be interesting for me to document what I eat and how I start to feel.
The cleanse starts Monday, which means I’ll be making a trip to one of my favorite places on earth: Trader Joe’s. Gotta stock up on the stuff I CAN eat and start brainstorming different ways to make it yummy!
If you have any suggestions or recipes that are gluten, dairy, and sugar free, send ’em my way! And hold my accountable, too. I know this is going to be difficult, but worth it.
(And if you’re on Twitter, you can see how I’m doing there, too!)
P.S. Here’s the cleanse if you want more info/want to join!
