WIAW – Detoxing it up

5 Jun

Happy Wednesday Everyone.  Sorry for the absence (again) my sister has had my computer because shes on vacation in Cali and wanted a small one compared to her large and in charge laptop. (best sister ever)  Meaning I am trying to do this from a different computer which is kind of difficult, I don’t like change lol.

Considering it is my YOLO summer, I drank and ate my body weight in carbs from Thursday through Sunday.  Random people actually called my pretzel girl because I had about 4 of those hot pretzels at the brewery on Saturday.  Sorry I’m not sorry.

So after that my friend and I have been wanting to try this smoothie detox for awhile.  I love my smoothies and once summer comes I easily have 2-3 a day.  But as you know I also love my eggs that I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to do it.  We made a pact together and would do the full 3 days of it.  Kill me now.


Breakfast 7am

I like to start with food in the morning, even if it’s eating a banana with PB.  Drinking it is more difficult to fill me up.  This smoothie was a cup of water, 1tbs flaxseed, 1 cup raspberries, 1 banana, 1/4 cup spinach (i put more towards 1 cup), 1 tbs almond butter and 2 tsp lemon juice. It was good, kind of my style smoothie so this one went down easy.  Then I was at the gym doing a leg workout and just day dreaming of food.  So by the time I came home from the gym i was ready for lunch.


Lunch 930am

Yes that is correct, I was ready for lunch 2.5 hours later lol.  I was going to have my “snack” which is just have another smoothie of whichever is your favorite, and since I liked the breakfast one it was going to most likely be that so I switched it up.  This one was made up of almond milk, celery, kale, a cucumber, 1/2 green apple, lime, 1 tbs coconut oil, and 1 cup of pineapple.  Gag me.  It was the celery that killed this smoothie otherwise I think I would’ve  enjoyed it.  I only drank half of this, then ate an apple right after.




Snack 1pm

I stuck it out then remade the breakfast smoothie and had that again. 


Dinner 4pm

I went to the yankee game last night so I was taking a 4 o’clock train and knew if I ate the full smoothie then I’d be starving so I downed half of it then put the other half in a water bottle and pretty much ate it the second I got on the train lol.  This one had coconut water, blueberries, mango, kale, lemon, avocado, and 1tbs flaxseed.


Snack 1130pm

I was starved after the game, so I stopped at jamba juice at the train station and got an “apples and greens” smoothie.  Hey it’s still sort of sticking with the plan right?  It was apples, greens, mango, spirulina, and banana.  Hit the spot.


Overall, I did okay the first day, today though I ate everything on it’s own that was suppose to go in the lunch smoothie instead lol.  Same thing right? 😉  I am not trying to lose weight on this just give my body a little break from my constant partying and get it up and ready for this weekend again! 

What makes me happy:  Knowing I will be eating eggs Friday morning lol.

Have you ever done a detox?  What kind and how long?

What ingredient could you literally not down in a smoothie?

What are you eating this Wednesday?

    I canNOT do kale in smoothies. Just no. I only tried it once and the memory of it still makes me gag. Good grief. And I don’t know if this counts as a cleanse or not, but back when I was young and pretty stupid, I decided to go on a 100% raw food diet. I know, right? The crazy thing was that I lasted for a good 8 months, but it’s definitely not something that I could ever do again…

    Props to you. I really do not think that I could do a smoothie or a juice cleanse. I enjoy the actual process of eating too much! 😉

    I cleanse 4 times a year, every season and sometimes more depending on what events are going on (after a wedding weekend, long trip etc.) and plan to detox after my Bangkok trip! I love it! I love the feeling of the challenge and have tried many different versions of cleansing including Juice, Master Cleanse + even raw vegan. My favorite of course is a smoothie detox because I just LOVE smoothies! Hope your cleanse goes well!! Love + Shine CourtStar

    I really need a little detox like this. You and I have the same morning smoothie! I put 2 cups of spinach now! It blows my mind that I can’t even taste it! I love little smoothie detoxes. If I could, I would just have smoothies!

    […] that cake 3-5 days in a row on top of eating other junk, those feelings kick in.  I loved doing my smoothie detox because I was eating/drinking foods I normally eat, but I can’t do that weekly, […]
