I can’t link it to just one thing, but a bunch of things: being busy last week and eating mostly beige food, coupled with two giant Easter dinners back home flanked by two terrible fast-food-on-the-road travel days on the way to Sudbury and back . . . all this has led to a terrible feeling of heaviness, slowness, general lack of good health.
In response, I’ve named this week Detox week. I’m aiming for lots of vegetables–including lots of plant leaves; lots of fish; little meat; and lots of raw food. While I’m totally not “into” raw food as a lifestyle or even a concept (food tastes REALLY GOOD cooked, and I’m not about to give that up!), right now I just feel the need for as much nutrition as I can cram into my body.
I’m also going to exercise and drink 2 Litres of water daily. My dream about doing Sun Salutes must mean something! In addition, I think we’ll try to forage some greens for salads this week. There should be some dandelion leaves budding in the parks, and maybe I can find some lamb’s quarters too. I’ll report back on what we find.
So here’s this week’s meal plan: 7 days of health!
Tuesday: green soup (watercress or spinach) with homemade crackers
Wednesday: salmon and roasted sweet potatoes
Thursday: roasted veggies and salad
Friday: tabouli and spaghetti squash
Saturday: veggie lasagne
Sunday: squash soup, and salad
Monday: eggs, salad and bean salad
Wish me luck! Let me know if you have a detox week at your house, or if you had one, what would you plan?
