The weekend water fast was broken with a trip to Subway. I took my mom to the doctor at the crack of dawn and on the way home she HAD to stop there. It can be surprisingly easy to eat almost completely raw at Subway and to really enjoy the meal. I confess that my fast ended up going through a late breakfast (or early lunch – or brunch; however you want to label the meal).
Green Smoothie Detox Day Twelve
Brunch: Veggie Delight on flat bread. I topped it with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, banana peppers, onions and salt and pepper for the dressing. It almost inspired my mom to the veggie side until she found out they were out of bacon (and yes, I giggled at that too).
Supper: I wanted to sit down with the family again. The boys were having a pasta dish I had whipped together (using Wacky Mac) and I made a soup from the base recipe of the Raw Spaghetti sauce. One can diced tomatoes, 1 clove garlic, some fresh basil, parsley, cilantro, some dried oregano, and a heaping handful of fresh spinach. The garlic was EXTREMELY strong, but I enjoy the taste. I had enough left over to put in the fridge and plan to serve it as a dip when we have company.
The thing that I am remembering is that it is not about recipes or a program. The Green Smoothie Detox is all about me listening to my body, making better choices and developing healthier eating habits that will follow me for life!
