Breakfast: Carrot, Apple and Pear Juice…again
I know the detox recommends vegetable juices and not fruit juices, and since Day 1 I’ve been trying to find a happy medium between the two. To me, the idea of ‘juicing’ carrot, celery, tomatoes and lettuce and drinking it seems bizarre, and I wonder who came up with doing that in the first place!
Nonetheless, in the interests of experimentation (I’ve certainly become more open to trying since I started detoxing), I have upped my carrot intake. My Day 1 juice consisted of 2 carrots, 6 apples and 4 pears – I didn’t drink it all, my family saw me juicing and after having my one glass, they drank the rest of it dry!
My juice today contained 4 carrots, 2 apples and 2 pears – it was still delightful. 5 carrots tomorrow!
Lunch: Baked Salmon fillet, quinoa and avocado salad
For lunch, I tried to recreate a dish that I’ve eaten at the Pure Restaurant in Soho – it was divine, and such a smart way to mix flavours and textures to make a really satisfying meal. I couldn’t make it look as pretty as they do, but it certainly tasted just as good! Not bad for healthy food!
