Sweet nothing

I'm now five days into a two week cleanse detox program. Five days down without caffeine, dairy, all sugars and processed foods. It's been quite insightful so far, and exhausting. I'm shocked to realise how much I overlooked and took for granted. My Traditional Chinese Health practitioner says I'll feel amazing for it next week but right now I'm missing sugar like Rihanna misses Chris Brown.

Some photos of our Australia Day last weekend. When the sun was shining, the Hottest 100 was playing and breakfast was a glorious serve of vegemite on toast and coffee.

Hope your weekend is sweet.

  1. How did this go in the end? Are you still off caffeine and sugar? Did the tiredness pass?

    1. It was so worth it Kate. It kick started a major shift towards mindful consumption and striving for more of a wholefoods approach. I'm drinking coffee again but they're piccolo lattes/no sugar - I found the usual cappuccino with sugar just didn't hit the spot like it used to after the detox. Now that I have the basics and some recipes under my belt, it's become less intimidating. The detox was extreme but a good way to clear the slate, I've found a good balance since. I learnt so much and continue to. Are you a wholefoods cook or planning on doing something similar? Belinda x
