As mentioned before in this post, I am embarking on a food detox and fitness program. I wanted to share with you my progress on day two of my adventure (early as it may be). So far, on day two I felt a little sluggish, due to the fact I significantly cut back my caffeine intake. I've also noticed my increased appetite so I think I will need to eat some more health snacks in between meals. I am hoping a little coconut water might also perk me up.
For my meal plan on day two I had a green smoothie and a cup of coffee for breakfast, a kale/cabbage slaw and lentil soup for lunch and chanterelle tacos with black beans for dinner. In between meals I snacked on mandarine oranges and trail mix, while drinking plenty of water and tea.
Will got me Super Natural Everyday for Christmas, which is where I found this awesome recipe for chanterelle tacos. This is such a flavorful dish and a great weeknight vegetarian meal. My one complaint is that the recipe called for 12 ounces of chanterelles, but if having this for dinner I would make closer to 16 ounces (1 pound). You can find the recipe here, on the Whole Living website.
Yesterday was also day two in my fitness plan and was a very relaxed day in my workout. Yesterday morning I started with some detox stretches and after dinner I took Cassidy on a 40 minute continuous walk. Today I will be back at run/walk intervals. The workouts have definitely made me feel more sleepy and I am looking forward to the exercise bringing me a good nights rest.
