Breakfast- Smoothie and herbal tea
Mid-morning: Snack or herbal tea
Lunch: Full, healthy meal (with restrictions of course, not just anything)
Mid-afternoon: Snack or herbal tea
Dinner: Juice or a soup
Sounds a little scary, but I think it's do-able. I love to cook and this still allows me enough opportunity to try new things on a daily basis. Plus, everything is made from natural ingredients, no canned or pre-packaged items, which means I'll be busy making everything from scratch.
I'm definitely interested to see how much better this will make us feel and I hope it becomes more of a lifestyle change. We do a pretty good job of eating healthy foods now, but I have a problem with snacking too much and Adam tends to grab junk food more than he'd like. So, this should help us in decreasing some of those tendencies.
This new experiment begins Monday. Until then we will be trying to eat up nearly everything in our pantry and fridge, buying a juicer, stocking up on fresh foods and making tons of coconut milk and nut milk for all the smoothies we will be drinking. Sounds delicious huh?
Things I'll miss:
Caffeine- Tea and Coffee
Goodies sitting around the office
Carbs- bread, chips, cereal, pasta

I will keep you updated on how it all goes.
Happy New Year!
