So what does one eat when one is doing a cleanse in the fall? Take a look.
|Breakfast: Standard serving of old fashioned oats with 1/2 an apple, "better butter," and a sprinkle of flax seeds and pumpkin seeds.|
|Morning snack: 1/2 a European cucumber, with heavily washed peel intact, dipped in lemon/sesame dressing.|
|Lunch: Homemade kitchari, which is brown Basmati rice with mung beans and aromatic spices, topped with steamed cauliflower and carrots|
|Afternoon snack: steamed cauliflower|
|Dinner: Steamed greens with zesty flax seed dressing and a bowl of pumpkin miso soup topped with cilantro|
|Evening snack (if I decide I want it): 1 cup of frozen grapes, again, heavily washed|
It is 6:30 PM and I haven't yet had my evening snack. Not sure I'll want it. I may keep the grapes to bring to work for an afternoon snack, when I tend to want a sugar pick me up. For now, I'm off to take an Epsom salt bath, which I'll follow-up with a cup of homemade turmeric tea.
By this time tomorrow, I hope the headache that is settling in on the right side of my forehead is gone, and I feel less sweaty.
