I’ve finally found a time of year where I can’t find an excuse not to eat a little better.
Honestly, doing a detox for the next 21 days has more to do with January than New Year’s and all it’s resolutions.
It’s something I’ve been meaning to do and put it off again and again. I’ve finally found that this month and the next couldn’t the be better. I’ve had every food excuse. Last spring with all it’s new produce, the summer with it’s berries, cobblers and bbq’s the fall harvest… you get the picture.
Based on the Dr. Joshi Diet, the next three weeks will have:
No Sugar (Maple syrup is ok)
No Wheat or Yeast (ack)
No Nightshades; potatoes, peppers, eggplants or tomatoes.
No Fruit (double ack)
It’s long overdue. I need a balance and this is what this type of elimination diet is trying to achieve. A balanced PH, making my body more alkaline rather than acidic. I just never realized how much I liked acidic once I tried to figure out what to eat when you’re not allowed to eat anything.
Seriously, I made the trip to the grocery store to stock up and in trying to keep in interesting I wanted to eat more than brown rice with broccoli every night, not that I won’t enjoy that. Especially with a little maple glazed tofu… but for all of you with allergies I feel for you. Even after eliminating all of these things, my bill had never seen such heights!
Goes to prove, cheap is NOT healthy.
Wish me luck.
I’ll be sure to post once I figure out what to eat beyond today’s roasted butternut and edamame;)
