Starting tomorrow I will be doing a week-long "whole food" cleanse. I've never been the type who can skip meals or maintain my sanity on a juice fast so this seemed right up my alley. The fact that I will be systematically scrubbing my "innards" clean while still enjoying eating real meals is what sold me. Basically we'll be eating nothing but whole grains and LOTS of veggies, which in the grand scheme of things is something we should be doing anyway, right?
The reason for this cleanse is mainly because I've been feeling as though my body hasn't been living up to it's potential and (if I may go a little granola here) I haven't been treating it as a temple, rather a trash can to hold all the crap I can cram into my face (hello, animal cookies, red vines and reeses pb cups). I hope that after this week (which I'll be blogging about daily) I feel re-energized, lighter and maybe have a bounce to my step! My goal is that this week long spring cleaning will help springboard me into eating more healthfully and with more awareness of what I put into my mouth! Let the eating begin!
