I get asked that anytime I tell people about this cleanse. So I decided it would be fun to write down everything that I have eaten. And by fun, I mean I'm too tired to think of anything else right now.
So here is what I can remember:
A: apples, asparagus, almonds, agave nectar, avocados, artichoke,
arugula, acorn squash
B: bananas, black eyed peas, brown rice, broccoli, baby corn, bamboo
shoots, black beans, balsamic vinegar, blackberries, blueberries,
barley, brazil nuts, brown rice pasta
C: carrots, corn, chickpeas, cilantro, cashews, cashew butter, celery,
crackers (gluten-free), cabbage, collard greens
E: edamame, eggplant, endive
F: flax seeds, filberts
G: green bell peppers, green beans, grapefruit, grapes, garlic,
H: herbal tea, hummus, hash browns
I: iced herbal tea
L: lentils, lettuce, Lara bars
O: okra, oatmeal, oranges, olives, onions
P: peas, potatoes, popcorn, pears, peaches, protein powder, pecans
R: red beans, red bell peppers, rice cakes, raspberries
S: sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, strawberries, spinach, snow peas,
salt, soy protein powder
T: tomatoes, tofu, tamale, tortillas chips, tabouleh, Tony
U: unsweetened soy milk
V: vegetable stock, vegan butter, veggie sushi roll
W: white rice, water, water chestnuts, waffle, white beans
X: xantham gum
Y: yellow squash
Thinking about food is making me hungry.
So, you see. I have been able to eat. And this list is only what I have eaten and not what I can eat. There are certain items that I would love to eat but just aren't in season (like butternut squash, yum!). I think as I continue my cleanse, I will continue to update this list. I purchased an eggplant today, but I haven't eaten it, so it didn't make the cut. Better luck next week, eggplant. Okay, I'm incoherent. I need to practice what I blog (see Day 7).
Let me know if you think there are some things that I should try that I'm leaving out of my diet.
