Debbie's Day Two:

Day two went well for me. I pretty much ate the same thing as the day before because I still had soup left over from day one and it was nice to come home from a great workout and just eat the soup again. It actually was better the second time around as the vegetables were quite a bit softer from soaking in the puree. I definitely am feeling the energy surge from eating such simple foods and getting those nutrients into my body. I can really tell it in the evenings because I'm still filled with lots of energy even after a good workout.

I read this week that drinking peppermint tea will help detox faster. So if you're on a cleanse, it wouldn't hurt to add some peppermint tea to help move along the detox process. I've been drinking a cup in the evenings and it has been a perfect way to end the night. I just find it totally relaxing! My second day went something like this:

Breakfast: Hot water with lemon, apple cider vinegar, and cayenne

Brunch:  Apple tart

Lunch:  Carrot Juice with apple

Snack: A couple handfuls of trail mix I make myself

Supper: Leftover vegetable noodle soup and salad with ranch dressing

Snack:  Raw banana cake

I drink several cups of hot tea during the day

Exercise: CSI (cardio, strength intervals ) for 50 minutes

Kristy’s Day Two:

Day two went quite well.  I was a bit hungrier today.   I didn’t eat more but my stomach growled a bit!  I had plenty of energy to finish the day and do a pretty intense workout.  Thankfully I got three of the apple tarts that we made for the video on Sunday, so I get to have those for dessert through tomorrow.  But my soup tonight was super good.  Here is how today went:

Breakfast: Papaya and spinach smoothie, hot water w/lemon and apple cider vinegar

Snack: trail mix, 2 clementines, banana chips, black coffee

Lunch: Salad leftover from last night with the leftover beet salad on top

Snack: carob brownie, apple, chamomile mango tea

Supper: Spinach Soup with kelp noodles

Dessert: Apple tart with banana ice cream, cup of Pero

Workout: 50 minutes of C.S.I. (Cardio, Strenght, Interval) class

I really enjoyed the soup and the apple tart is the perfect way to end the night.

Marinate the kelp noodles with some lemon juice (they only need sprinkled with about ½ lemon).  Blend all the ingredients except for the basil and walnuts.  Warm up the soup in a double boiler, add the kelp noodles (not all the lemon juice), add the julienned basil and garnish with walnut pieces.
