There are days when i feel i need to de-toxify myself! eat a lot of organic stuff and breathe in fresh air. and for me, detoxification means eating a lot of veggies and fruits. you should try this too… it not only helps your body gain back all the vitamins you may have missed while having all the wrong spices but also help clean the stomach and give it a light happy feeling. for a change the tummy doesnt need to growl on what all shit it has to digest and how long it may take to complete the task (yes… children picture books and cartoons do influence my such thoughts!) begin the day with no oily paratha breakfast but a healthy fibrous fruit juice. i always have sweet-lime.
and a dear friend gifted me these this morning. they are so yummy and chewy. makes up for the caffeine i wanted to ditch for the whole day.
the afternoon was pretty lame, a few more fruits for lunch. i have always loved them but they dont feel satisfying with out the spices… well, remember! thats what we feel but the stomach is pretty full with whatever you eat with/without spices. while detoxifying, taste buds are not always happy.
the evening saw me craving for some real food. something that would crunch and crack in my mouth with juices tingling my tongue. i went back to charbhuja , my favorite airy eatery and asked him to pack some vegetable sandwiches. i was heading my way to meet a cousin of mine. pretty neat and clean in their eatery… and they make it all in front of you. good fresh hygienic stuff!
what i did while waiting or her… picked up lots of greens veggies and some other stuff for PG. (psst: i love to shop for him :))
and there i was unpacking charbhuja delicacies while she popped out a bday gift for me ! yay!!!! how i love receiving gifts 🙂
she made sure it was kept a secret till i get my hands on it and bwoy… i was truely surprised and flushed with love on this gesture of hers.
popped in a glass full of sugarcane juice and lots of veggies and chutney layered on the bread. my favorite evening meal ANY DAY !!
The late evening snack didnt leave me much hungry for dinner… good for me! i slivered a huge guava and kept on munching slices in between cooking and while watching some tv… this constant munching of a single guava every few minutes was my way of not feeling hungry later in the night.
a whole day of fruitilicious flavor. enjoyed the light feeling of the stomach, a clean digestive system for the day. lots of fruits and juices for the vitamins and fibre i need.
you should try this once a month at least.
this would give you the lost glow on your face too. if you see all the pics again- i haven’t had a single spoon of oil in the day. so i keep myself calorie free. i have heard a ‘strawberry&oat’ day is also detoxifying. will have to wait for the strawberry season to try this one.
