I think one of the biggest misconceptions about a cleanse is that you have to give up your favorite things. Starbuck’s green tea lemonade is/was one of my faves but after almost 2 weeks without one, I don’t even think about it! I thought giving up refined sugar was going to be the biggest challenge for me, but I think getting out of the habit of having sweets has made me stopped craving them. WOW, that’s huge for a girl like me.
I do still LOVE my chocolate but on the cleanse I can have a new favorite…. Bija Omega Truffles. Soooo good you forget they are actually good for you! I am discovering so many new foods that I probably wouldn’t have tried if I wasn’t on the cleanse. Like my new favorite breakfast is Amande Almond Yogurt (coconut flavor) with Perky’s Crunchy Flax cereal, shelled hemp seeds, and walnuts.
Yum….so good I’ll be eating this long after the cleanse ends. That’s one of the best things I’m discovering about the cleanse. I’m eating foods that are good for my body and that I LIKE enough to keep eating when I can eat anything I want again. 🙂
