Detox Day 5 - Weekends can be tough!

If you've had a fairly easy week, you may find come friday that the mental aspects of a cleanse really hit you. Weekends are usually a time to relax, enjoy time with family and of course MEALS!! I too find this a challenge, but my suggestion if to plan a few fun/enjoying things for yourself - a movie night, a hike, maybe a shopping trip - anything that keeps your mind off your usual 'treats'. You can also switch the mind frame and enjoy some 'detox-friendly' treats - so for tonight's movie night I will be cutting up some fresh pineapple and pomegranite and enjoying nature's treats!
Keep in mind, at this point you're probably not having a physical craving, but a mental one (the 'habit' of enjoying those chips at night). Stay strong, tomorrow is another day!! Enjoy your new energy and glowing skin - your body will thank you!

My dinner tonight -
1.brown rice pasta with cilantro pesto
2. A saute of shallots, kale, bok choy, beet greens and grated beets

Dessert - I splurged and had a medjool date! I really wasn't craving anything sweet and felt pretty full after doing two smoothies throughout the day.
