Cleansing diet: day five

on August 31, 2013

fruit-smoothieToday was pretty good! It was the last day of Sharath’s teaching in London but unfortunately I couldn’t go due to personal reasons. The lie-in was heavenly though!

I had a big lunch today which helped me get through the afternoon. However, I decided to walk along the seafront to a friend’s house to watch a film in the evening, which took about 40 minutes, and it totally wiped me out. I was so exhausted when I got there and felt just about ready to collapse. It seemed far more strenuous than my Ashtanga yoga practice, but maybe it was just because it was later in the day and coming up to feed time.

Luckily I’d taken some tasty vegetable provisions with me so I was able to refuel once I got there. But watching my friends tucking into a chunky cheese & veggie omelette was torture!

Here’s what I ate on day five:

  • sweet potato, veg & broccoliBreakfast: banana, mango, peach, blueberry & almond smoothie.
  • Snack: apple.
  • Lunch: baked sweet potato with leftover stuffed pepper mixture (see day three) and steamed broccoli.
  • Snack: half an avocado.
  • Dinner: leftover butternut soup (see day four); leftover stuffed peppers (see day three); leftover rice salad (see day one).

Only 2 days to go!
