breakfast smoothie:Â wow this is brown.Â i have no idea what’s in this smoothie.Â i think there was some almond butter, some mango?Â blueberries? definitely some spinach.Â i was in a rush this morning and just threw stuff together.
lunch:Â a-maz-ing.Â “potsticker burgers” with asian slaw. i didn’t add egg or the red pepper flakes, and i left the cabbage out of the burgers themselves.Â i also cooked the burgers in a pan instead of grilling them this time (the first time i made these on the grill and they just fell apart.Â this batch seemed even softer and might have just sunk through the grate).Â seriously tasty.Â i ate it with some pre-cooked brown rice from trader joe’s because i forgot to make rice until the last minute.Â the rice wasn’t fantastic, but it was edible and filling.
snacks:Â cherries, crackers, hummus, agave ginger cashews
dinner:Â another brown smoothie?Â but this one was more recent, so i can recall that it includes mango, blueberries, spinach, almond butter and (the best part) fresh apple juice that i made myself!Â i have an old juicer that i bought yeeeeears ago and rarely use.Â i dusted it off and juiced up a whole bag of apples (only yielding enough juice for two smoothies plus a little extra for the

i think it’s likely a lack of sleep more than the cleanse, but i got very foggy this afternoon.Â i may have even inadvertently spoken rudely to an acquaintance i ran into out of context because i couldn’t figure out who they were fast enough (sorry!).Â words came slowly.Â i felt sluggish… early to bed tonight.Â at least, earlier than 1 a.m.
