Detox: Day One

Waking up with a hangover on the morning you’re starting a detox can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on the level of hangover. In my case, a mild one as a result of a pre-detox pinot grigio binge, it definitely worked in my favour. Waking up feeling like shite makes detoxing suddenly become the most appealing thing in the world, however everyone knows the quick fix cure for a hangover is fried eggs and bacon (meat and dairy) with toast and butter (wheat and dairy) and a lovely sugary cup of tea (caffeine, sugar and dairy) – all of which are no goes.

Despite being bleary eyed and feeling a little bit sorry for myself, I managed to avoid all of the above and settled for a nice big bowl of granola with soya yoghurt and fresh fruit instead. I snacked on cashews and pistachios mid morning, and finished off the Christmas satsumas for good measure. Lunch was vegetarian chilli with brown rice (and a big kick!) and dinner was winter vegetables (a huge plateful of roasted parsnips and carrots, swede crush, peas, green beans and sprouts). I am currently drinking a glass of chocolate soya milk and nibbling on some raw chocolate coated goji berries.

I weighed myself this morning and was shocked to discover that during the month of December I had put on 8lbs! EIGHT POUNDS! Which gave me another big kick up the backside to do this detox, aside from just to make myself feel better generally.

So here I am. At the end of day 1. And already I’m feeling good!
