All started well today with my favourite breakfast – overnight oats! I love eating this out of a jar as it makes it more of a ritual and I find I am more mindful during eating and savour the experience (if I am running late I can just take it with me too!) We had kiwifruit instead of banana with ours and both the husband and I devoured it easily. I love this breakfast because it is definitely one that fills you up and the oats are slow releasing meaning it gives energy throughout the morning.
Come lunchtime, the sun was shining so I decided to make my lunch and eat it outside since I wasn’t working today. The prep for this was easy and the meal was simple but delicious – I was so pleased to be able to use Italian parsley from my own herb garden too. I made a few adaptions as I am not a huge fan of mushrooms so added a bit more fill and placed the avocado on top instead.
I did find that it was a bit on the light side and I was feeling hungry in the afternoon so had a big cup of peppermint tea to help me last till dinner time. My cup of tea was also enjoyed in the sunshine with 5 minutes peace as the little one played happily beside me.
For dinner we enjoyed the chicken, coriander and mint with brown rice which was surprisingly filling. We used fresh mint from our garden and had watercress this time which we didn’t do last time as I wanted to try it. Both my husband and little one enjoyed this as well which is always a bonus. After dinner I enjoyed a cup of hot water with lemon and then had an early night. No temptation for wine either which is good but this might get more tricky later in the week!
DAY ONE – done and dusted. I am definitely counting my blessings and loving it so far. I imagine the sunny weather helped today as some of these meals might have been hard in the cold and rain! The bath will have to be something I enjoy later in the week and I was too tired and then am busy the next few nights but it is definitely on my to do list for a few days time. By then I am sure to be needing it as my body feels the effects of the cleanse!
Remember the cleanse is running for all of September to it is not too late to join me!
