30 Bananas a Day!

I am proud of myself --- as I survived a coffee free day. I had some negative thoughts. However, I knew it was just my body wanting the caff! Lol. I have been using the power positive thinking. I really didn't think much or count calories during the day. Kind of let my tummy be the lead plus I PLANNED for outings etc.

MENU:

Smoothie with 4 nanas, peaches

Fresh apple carrot ginger juice

Smoothie with 4 nanas, peaches and a raw vegan "taco" --- walnut "meat" and salsa

3 apples

Salad with cucumber/tomato/green pepper/red onion and ginger orange dressing

Banana icecream

Water - Just 3 cups - but I peed often --- and clear.

SLEEP:

11P - 445A and 445A - 830A NICE and DEEP sleep!

DETOX/SIDEEFFECTS:

I stopped using my topical cleanser and prescription acne medicines. I have just been using water and a simple oil free moisturizer. My face seems less irritated, and happier. I still have some minor bumps on my forehead - but nothing major. Energy was okay today. I felt fine. No stomach upsets or anything. I did crave cooked food in the evenings - went away after I ate my salad.

OVERALL:

Today went well. I will need more greens in the future though. To me that is an important component of this diet! In terms of cals I know I am over 2000. I ate a very small portion of fat in my taco --- but that is it.

I really enjoy my savory meals --- being able to eat even a little taco and then to pair with a smoothie with more cals really helped me!!

Also, packing fresh juice is an awesome way for me to ensure I stay "carbed up." Although it isn't the most ideal way to get fruits/veggies --- better than stopping somewhere!

 

PS Yesterdays menu was something like this:

Fresh apple juice

Soy latte

Tortilla with grilled vegetables, corn, salsa and a little guac

Extra large banana and celery smoothie with a few dates tossed in

Today was much better!

I have hand eczema, too. Really hoping it clears up once I'm back on the bananas!

Gah! Forgot two major other "detox" events.
Eczema on both hands (itchy and kind of bumpy). I get this with season changes - especially in the summer when it gets hot hot hot. It is a bit unusual for it to come out in the spring.
Seasonal allergies with sneezing. I don't get allergies every year. Not sure if this is relevant. Anyhow - I am not treating either condition at the moment.
