Smoothies, Left Overs, and Soft Taco Shells, Oh my! Cleanse, Day 4
The troubling repeated theme is I eat when I’m not hungry. Surprised at how often I’m needlessly noshing. After the cleanse, I’ll look more deeply at what emotions I’m eating and why. Ouch!
Breakfast – smoothie; Dole mango, banana, and carrots. Added grapes and orange juice as liquid to the frozen fruit.
Late lunch/early dinner – sweet potato and black bean taco filling (no shell) and tofu, peppers, onions, and tomatoes, a chopped banana sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon.
I cleaned out the left overs for this meal. Bananas with a sprinkle of nutmeg and cinnamon was very satisfying. So glad I tried it.
Tonight I broke down and ate a soft taco shell before bed. The part of me that demands comfort was pleased. I fought to deny myself but ultimately gave in. I felt disappointed while simultaneously knowing a soft taco is a small cheat.
What type of smoothie do you like? So many good ones!
