breakfast: orange juice w/ chlorophyll
lunch/snacks: cabbage salad, green apple, green grapes
dinner: roasted brussels sprouts
a conversation at lunch has me excited about all the things i'm looking forward to eating...
that said, i'm not experiencing any real cravings yet, although i'm beginning to really want some bread.
i would make the cabbage salad again, maybe for a spring/summer potluck. i'm not too fond of vinegar* , so i might use less of that, and a touch more sea salt. the amount of red pepper was just right and gave it a good kick. it's also surprisingly filling. i had my apple for "dessert" and some more grapes towards the end of the day, and have not felt hungry.
the variety's been pretty amazing. i would recommend always going into a cleansing/fast with a clear regimen and/or recipes. it helps tremendously, especially when you start feeling "bored" with the whole thing.
i am experiencing deeper sleep, but there's a heaviness to it. it's not the pop-up-at-5am-with-no-alarm clarity that tends to come a little later down the road. i wonder if that's not something i can expect since this isn't a juice/water fast.
in the past, i've concluded fasts with a water-only day. i haven't decided if i want to do that this time around.
*i use apple cider vinegar for just about everything involving cooking/consumption. i keep white vinegar for house cleaning, but that's about it.
