Cleanse Day 7: Today your food intake will consist of brown rice, fruit juices and all the vegetables you care to consume.
Oh my! Today is the last day of the cleanse, woof! Rice, fruit juices, and veggies all day. I’m ok with rice, I could eat that and be satisfied all day. But after Fatima said I would be “backed up” if I ate only rice, I thought I would just eat a bowl of rice for each meal paired with lots of veggies and the leftover passion fruit juice from my earlier experiments with passion fruit margaritas…
Today I also discovered that I was supposed to eat to eat the soup in unlimited quantities all throughout the cleanse. How did I discover this? I went to find the source of this cleanse. I googled “Wonder Soup” because that was the only thing that had a name attached to this cleanse. SO MANY people have good and different recipes to help make the soup taste a little more delicious. I landed on Live Strong’s website where they had a recipe for the soup. And there is was – eat the soup throughout the 7 day cleanse in unlimited quantities. Why did the source I went to first not say that? I don’t know, but I feel like that would have changed a few things – like that Oreo licking experience – I would have just eaten some soup.
When we make rice, we through a couple cubes of coconut milk in the pot (in addition to the water). It helps it keep from sticking to the sides, and adds a nice little touch to the rice. Overall, today was easy. I ate more soup, made some good rice, and finished off the veggies. I really do feel good. I’ve noticed more energy, a clearer mind, and a notch tighter on my belt.
Fatima and I have a cupcake tour planned to celebrate the end of this cleanse. Bon appetite!
