Day 1–Have a Headache Already

Happy New Year to everyone! Day 1 of the detox started today. It’s been pretty tough,I’m not gonna lie.

I went to Whole Foods and Walmart yesterday to get all the fruits and vegetables I needed for the week.



I’ve had a headache all day due to the lack of caffeine. I really don’t drink but maybe a cup and a half of coffee and a glass of tea a day. But I sure did miss it today.

This morning I got up to help in the nursery at church. I made the Antioxidant smoothie. You can find the recipe here. It was really good, a little tart but not bad.



When I got to the church I got a cup of unsweetened green tea (no caffeine) so I could convince myself it was a cup of coffee. The tea and smoothie held me over till about 11:30. I made a nice little salad for lunch with water with of couple apples thrown in. My salad had spinach, avocado, cucumbers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds dressed with balsamic vinaigrette


I did get pretty hungry this afternoon so I made the roasted chickpeas. They were yummy and held me over till dinner! You can find the roasted chickpea recipe here.

Nice and crunchy!


By the time 6:00 came along I was ready for dinner. I decided to just make a combination of roasted veggies. I chopped up sweet potatoes and zucchini. I also made some kale chips that were flavored with sesame seeds olive oil and sea salt.



For desert I chopped up some honeydew and oranges.


Dinner was pretty good and filling. Now if I could just get rid of this headache. Kyle decided to do it with me today and has done very good but now he’s not feeling too hot! I hope he’s not getting sick.

Have a good rest of your New Years and see ya tomorrow!
