Well, still hanging in there. I survived a whole day away from home with snacks and questions at 2 restaurants. I may have cheated a little - had some mustard in a dressing and stopped at starbucks and got a Vanilla Rooibos Latte which i thought was a vanilla herbal tea. I asked for almond or rice milk and they offered lactose free milk - so i went with it (not sure what exactly it was), and I think they put some Vanilla sugar in it as well. I was worried I'd have the runs on the drive home - but everything was fine. Too bad, I was hoping to be allergic to Starbucks. I would save money!
As we wrap up the final week, I'm wondering what I'm going to indulge in first...I have lots of ideas, but I think I'll try to introduce one at a time in order to see if I have any intolerances. Coffee, Pizza, Wine, Cookies, all the good/bad stuff! Having said that, I can see how easy it will be to maintain a healthy eating style now that I know how to do it. I'm really amazed that in only a few weeks I've learned how to cook so differently. (and easily).
I've been reflecting on how this detox has got me to try new foods and things I never would have tried. My whole family really likes rice crackers (which I thought would taste like rice cakes - but they don't, they are soo good.) Also, i had raw Tuna, occtopus, A whole fish (head and all!), Cornish hen, fennel, celery root, and I know how to use fresh herbs too! I think my eating habits have been changed for good, and i hope yours have too.
