I’ve been following a cold press organic Juice company for several months now on Instagram. While traveling this last week, I decided I was going to buy the 3 day cleanse and start it prior to me starting my whole30. I have been binge eating myself through 2 holidays and lots and lots of sugar laden, fat fried, junk food, so I figured a juice cleanse would make my detox process a tab bit easier. Day one of the juice cleanse wasn’t so bad. I am not a huge fan of beets, so getting through the 2 that contained them was rough, however the other 4 were tolerable. Now, Day two (today) is a totally different story. I refused to drink the two red drinks, So by 5pm I had only consumed 2 of the 6 juices. Feeling pretty crappy, laying on the couch thinking about sour cream and onion potato chips (thanks to my husband) I forced myself to drink 2 more. By now I was already feeling the effects of the cleanse, and because I had committed to starting my whole30 with my husband tomorrow I’m going to calk it up as a loss and move forward with my whole30 tomorrow too. Being the juices are all whole30 complaint, my husband is going to take a few of the drinks and I will drink the one I really like, so there wont be too much loss.
Now onto my whole30 prep:
I got a corned beef brisket from costco. I put it in a large pot covered with water and cooked it for about 3 hours. My plan for this brisket is to feed my hubby tonight and cut the rest up for hash and fried eggs for breakfast the next few days.
This is the type of corned beef I buy. It contains a seasoning packet and is very easy to cook.
Tuna boats contain two cans of tuna, 2 stalks of celery, half of an onion, some flavor god seasoning, dill and homemade mayonnaise. I put the tuna in mini yellow and red bell peppers. Yum!
I am totally looking forward to starting my January Whole30. Hopefully you all are as excited as I am..
