Winter Calorie Savers

I realized I haven’t posted pictures of food in awhile, so below, you’ll find of the stuff I’ve been eating the past few days. Also, one thing that hasn’t really bothered me so far are the shakes and supplements. I know some people get really really sick of them, but I don’t mind it. The shake in the morning is so light (ice cubes, almond milk, and 2 powders), and by lunch, I’m super hungry and ready to go. I feel so much better than sometimes when I eat a bagel with cream cheese, eggs, and fruit. Just like people say, it’s important to eat breakfast in the morning, but it’s nice when you feel light and not overly full your entire morning. P.s. according to the poll it looks like there are more people who are not inspired by my blog to do a cleanse, however, there are still 10 people who are! That makes me happy – if 10 of you do the cleanse, I guarantee it’ll be a great experience and you’ll learn a lot more about yourself. Anyway, here are the pictures below along with recipes:

Day 12: Fun polls!

I can’t believe it’s already day 12 – time flies by so fast! A lot of people have been asking me lately how I’ve been feeling, if this cleanse has any effect on my weight, if I get hungry, etc. In summary, I obviiiii get hungry. Gosh there are so many times when I’m like “eff this salad” and I’m staring at the cheese pizza in the cafe. I REALLY miss cheese. Anyways, I think I’ve probably dropped a little bit of weight but I guarantee I’ll gain it all back once I’m off the cleanse. I never did this cleanse for weight loss reasons to begin with – I just wanted to test myself and be healthy for a few weeks because of the November-December ridiculousness. Overall, I feel Continue reading

Who’s got it better than us?

I can’t not have a post dedicated to the Niners during this cleanse. Yesterday’s game was epic and it would have been even better if I had gotten the chance to sip a cold beer, but I had helllllzaaa fun anyways!! If I had to say one regret I have about the cleanse, it’s picking the 21 days when the Niners are in the playoffs – I’m so dumb, but it’s too late now. I’ll enjoy this sober, and the Superbowl will be even better for me if they make it. And for those of you wondering if I’m bandwagoning, definitely not- the Niners hold a special place in my heart ever since they won the ’89 Superbowl. I was turning 4 years old that Sunday, the pinata was all set up, chocolate cake with frosting was good to go, but it got no love. Everyone was engrossed in the game and my bday got the shaft. It was a scarring moment for a 4 yr old, but hey- at least the Niners won… maybe I gave them some good luck? Anyhoo, here are a few highlights of the madness yesterday:

  • Vishal punching a hole in his door when the Saints made their last touchdown in the last 2 min… bloodbath, literally (refer to pics)
  • All the guys shotgunning beers after the Niners won… as a friend said: “rooftop shotgun with the niners rising and the sun setting  #glorious”
  • SF was gorgeous and the streets were crazy… god i love the city.
  • I finished off the day with a shake and grilled chicken from the Plant Cafe. YUM…kinda… 11 more days and counting!! 🙂

Food or Alcohol?

I had a ground-breaking thought in my head last night: would I give up really tasty food or alcohol for the rest of my life? Honestly, if you asked me before this cleanse, I think I would have said food but I’m not so sure anymore. Friday night was quite an interesting experience for me. It was Shephali‘s birthday and the plan was to go to dinner and then out afterwards. I thought I’d join everyone at dinner, head to the lounge for 30 minutes, 45 tops, and then leave. However, I ended up staying until 1 am, which was wayyy longer than I expected. I had a BLAST sober observing the Continue reading

Too Happy

I’m so happy I could eat gluten-free pasta and do this cleanse everyday until Coachella 2012 if I needed to. Ok, yeah right. But this is a fantastic Friday. I’m not even dreading the raw Facebook salad I’m about to eat for lunch today because I got Coachella tix!! Huge props to Victor for this… It’s gonna be super epic, lineup is awesome. Continue reading
