Finally sitting down to a warm cup of Apple Spice tea and watching a marathon of Friends!
As soon as I got home from Costco this afternoon I put in my iPod and got straight to cleaning. I didnâ€™t take off the headset until 6pm for dinner and, because I didnâ€™t really have a â€œrealâ€ meal today I couldnâ€™t wait to create a delicious dinner. Hubby enjoyed some yummy spaghetti.
The best part of this CLEAN EATING is that I am getting really creative with different combinations. Tonight I baked up some Butternut Squash with EVOO and a little honey at 450 for 25 minutes. mmmâ€¦
I also cooked up some mushrooms and spinach to throw in as well.
I also threw in some grilled tofu I cooked up with EVOO and Oregano.
All this goodness I threw on a bed of rice noodles.
This was such a lovely dinner, but I was craving something sweet after. This past week I have really craved SWEETS and SALT!!!! I didnâ€™t realize how much I crave these two things. Now that I am learning more about â€œgoodâ€ sugars vs. â€œbadâ€ sugars itâ€™s really got me interested in learning all about how sugar effects the body (good and bad).
Some of you asked about the book I was reading last night at Borders, here it is, â€œThe Raw Food Detox Dietâ€ not sure who the Author is.
I am NOT thinking of doing a RAW diet (I do admire those who do) just very interested in it, in how food truly effects are bodies. I want to take a second and make a disclaimer about the DETOX that I am doing. I just wanted to say that I donâ€™t believe in QUICK fix diets, and I am not considering this a WEIGHT LOSS DIET. This Detox that I am doing is to help ME feel better. I want to feel that best that I can, and I know that when I am eating poorly I feel like poo. I also know that itâ€™s ok to eat a well balanced diet that is full of wheat and the occasional sweets too. After these 30 days I plan on sticking to mostly all CLEAN FOOD, but enjoying all FOODS as well. Ok enough said.
Oh and look what Hubby picked from the Garden today!! I have never had a yellow tomato???
Bosco is giving me the evil eye, I think he wants to play 🙂
I canâ€™t wait to wake up to a CLEAN HOUSE tomorrow!!!! Sleep tight friends!
