Is it bad that I've got four days left of this detox, and all I can think about is the fact that my Better Half will be making me a victory cake? With gooey chocolaty layers and other sexy things baked in? Made from spelt and natural sugar so it's not all evil?
I plan to wash it down with a cup of black tea, and chase that with a glass of red wine. Yes, I've developed much better habits with this cleanse, but I will have my day of fun, damnit.
At least I will walk away with a love of hot lemon and honey, and a shitload of new recipes in my arsenal.* Not to mention a body that is balanced, not overly acidic, and a few pounds lighter. And those bags under my eyes have gotten much less severe. Take that, jerk of a doctor.
I will try to do this again in April or May. I'll bet it's something you can get better at with practice. I already know how to make the best meals, snacks and treats, so there's no nasty accident recipes to deal with. If any of you are considering a detox, give this one a go. Three weeks goes by quickly, and there are still plenty of food options out there.
And hey, we can have a big blog love-in and do it together! And then we will all hug, and cry, and talk about how much we miss cake. Like the way I'm missing it. Right now.
*Did anyone get that clever little pun? No? Just me?
