Today saw yet more food shopping - I bought supplies to see me through to the end of Day Four and it was surprisingly expensive - piles of fresh fruit and veg don't come cheap! My 'special' fruit and veg mountain is also rapidly taking over our fridge - I still can't get over the volume of food in store for me this week.
Unlike yesterday's hungover hermit day spent hanging around the house juicing, I decided to hit the sales this afternoon. Clothes shopping on day two of a diet - the perfect way to spur myself on to lose weight! There's nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous dress at half price, but just that bit too small...
There seemed to be less solid food on offer today - although the melon, mango and erm, parsley Breakfast Booster juice was thick and filling. After a couple of hours traipsing around Covent Garden I was starting to feel a bit wobbly, and I was deeply sceptical that a handful of almonds could perk me up, but they did. My downfall is usually snacking - I tend to crack and reach for the chocolate and crisps by mid-afternoon. I'm hoping this week will include plenty of healthy snack ideas to help me give junk food the shove!
Today's curried lentil soup lunch was filling and seriously tasty - it smelled so appetising my non-detoxing boyfriend even opted in! I'll be hanging onto the recipe to make for weekday lunches.
The roasted veg and tofu dinner was another hit, and another great lunch box option. I've never cooked with tofu before and I was worried it'd be really boring, but there was a frankly ridiculous range of tofu options in my local health food store and the seasoned version I went for was surprisingly nice!
Another bedtime, another day gone by with barely a hunger pang or a craving in sight. This is all going suspiciously according to plan...
I've got one more day on holiday and then it's back to the grindstone. I'll be making the juices, lunches and snacks the night before, which should help me resist the ever-present office temptations of tea rounds, posh takeaway coffees and junk food on tap!
