Season for Detox – Day 24

I had a great walk this morning.  It was warm and just a bit breezy, perfect for a power walk.  For months I’ve been trying to keep the habit of getting up first thing in the morning, doing my Bible reading, drinking a green smoothie and maybe some other breakfast if I’m really hungry and then taking a walk.  If I dion’t get out there first thing in the morning it can often get skipped for the whole day.  Then I can decide to do more exercise later in the day.

I’ve been trying to work on a new book on healthy eating these past weeks.  It seemed thehat the direction was clear at first then I got myself confused by considering too many great ideas at once.  I figured I could write the end all and do all book or just get started with one idea and move from there.  Of course, I know better; I know to get the one idea and stick to it in order to get anything done.  I’m a certified creativity coach for goodness sake (among so many other certifications) so I know the routine of needing to get focused.  My mind goes to information on health and wellness while my heart goes to a detox cookbook type of product.  I’m enjoying this detox so much that I want to share this concept with others in the form of a book or ebook.  The main thing is to just get started.

Food wise, there was a great smoothie for breakfast.  I also juiced about half a bag of oranges.  There’s something special about freshly squeeze orange juice.  I haven’t’ done a lot of organie juice during his detox because of its sugar content but I did drink a few ounces of this after squeezing.  Also had a few bites of the carrot cake made on Thanksgiving.  For lunch I did the left-over routine using the leek and potato soup.  The soups just seems to taste better  on the second day.  A snack of raw almonds and raisins went with me during an afternoon shopping trip for a new vacuum and a wonderful surprise – a new Cuisinart Food Processor.  I used to have one literally decades ago, but just didn’t need it at the time.  Now I’m so ready to try new raw food recipes.  Honestly, I’m getting ready to work on setting up some live cooking classes which will be so wonderfully fun to do.

For dinner, I made a spicy warmed cauliflower with coconut oil and spices.  With that I put together a kale, avocado salad.  This is really one of my favorite new dishes form this detox.  YUM! Talk to you tomorrow.
