30 Bananas a Day!

Freelee's challenge: 1 year of doing the whole shebang--diet, exercise, water, sleep, etc.  Stop worrying about weight gain and the momentary ups and downs of detox.  Just do it!  

Exercise

None... But I didn't stop moving all day.  :)

 

Food

Meal 1: 2 mangos, 5 medium bananas

Meal 2: 1 Ugli fruit (yum!), 2 Kumatos (brown tomatoes), 1/3 C. unsulphered dried apricots

Meal 3: 1 mango, 1 head red leaf lettuce, 64 oz. o.j.

Meal 4: Buckwheat flat bread (buckwheat flour, almond flour, pureed apple, Bragg's Liquid Aminos, corn starch, ground coriander, baking powder), Sweet Potato spread (sweet potatoes, yellow pepper, onion, Bragg's Liquid Aminos, tahini, lemon juice, smoked paprika)

2496 cal.  86/7/7 C/F/P, 2246 mg. sodium 

Water

16 cups/ 128 oz.

Sleep

10:30-7:30 Slept o.k.  Wakeful in the early morning hours. 

Today's Pleasures

Delicious o.j.--the oranges I've gotten the past 2 weeks are awesome

Getting lots done

Time with my kids, and especially watching them play outside after the long winter

Connection with my husband

Detox 

White coating on my tongue upon awakening

Swollen under-eye circles in the morning

Some gas

Strange float-y, smelly poo (and I haven't eaten overts in days)

Minor redness and a lot of bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin 

Fingers and belly swelling after dinner

Stress level

Moderate

Daily Thoughts

It was one of those days... Running around all day.  I missed my morning workout, and then never got to it later in the day.  I was eating on the run and had trouble getting the calories in.  My supplier didn't have the mangoes I ordered.  Even though the predicted rain didn't come, I didn't make it into the garden.  I got a sharp poke as I was re-potting my orange tree--it actually bled.  Then I re-potted a banana tree only to discover an ant nest among the roots.  Luckily, that plant is going to be outside for awhile.  But have the ants taken up permanent residence?  Oh dear!  The buckwheat flatbread was a disaster--if the recipe says you need parchment paper, you really do need it.  Too much work, too much salt, and I burned my finger.  LOL!  Time to head off to bed, I say.

Hi, Just wanted to mention that Bragg's Aminos are considered pretty toxic.  David Klein has a good article about it.
