Well, it's Wednesday, so it's time for another installment of....
As always, shout out to Jenn, the creator of WIAW! Head over to her blog to check out what WIAW is all about, and look at what other bloggers are eating! Thanks for the link-up Jenn!
I've had to get really creative and out of my comfort zone for breakfast. My usual cereal is not part of the nutritional plan (if you eat grain/wheat, it has to be whole wheat and not processed--bye bye cereal!). So, I've been trying some different things. I've had some overnight oats with berries mixed in, I've made the Meal Replacement Shakes from Advocare, blended with a handful of frozen fruit for an on-the-go breakfast,
My morning snacks have consisted of fruit. Advocare highly suggests lots of fruits during the Cleanse Phase. I've used a pre-made fruit salad, but I've also just eaten an orange or an apple depending on what's in the fridge in the morning.
Each day, I've eaten a salad topped with tuna and black beans.
This is not out of the norm for me, so no big deal! I'll also eat some baby carrots or other vegetable on the side.
I've been either eating an apple, a handful of walnuts, or some sliced bell peppers for an afternoon snack.
I've been able to get creative with dinner throughout the Cleanse Phase. Advocare recommends just lean protein and lightly cooked veggies. Instead of using ground beef for some meals we usually make, I've been using ground turkey. Here, I made turkey chili using this recipe.
long list of Advocare-friendly recipes, and I've also made the Herb Roasted Chicken and Sides and the Ground Turkey with Veggies from that list. All good recipes!
There are lots of supplements to take during the Cleanse Phase!
Next up: The Max Phase, designed to help the body absorb maximum nutrition now that toxins and waste are out.
Question for you: Have you ever tried a cleanse/Advocare 24DC? Do you try to "eat clean"? If so, what's your favorite dish?
