Yesterday was Day 3 on the detox. With good intention, I'm trying to blog daily but I got sucked into the Australian open vortex last night. Amazing tennis!! So here is yesterday's experience. I "enjoyed" the unsweetened soy milk with gluten free, sugar free granola, puffed brown rice and banana much more without the migraine. And I found some kombacha green tea at WF I like ... not on par with my darkest of dark nectar of the gods, Peets Major Dickasons, but for a non-toxic beverage it's tops. L said she's feeling great and her jacket is already fitting better. She's off to NY which may be challenging for the diet but I composed a list of dos and donts and sent her with a stellar gluten free lunch. Good luck love.

I thought I would go spinning at lunch but had to get some work done so another day passed without exercise, except for the dog walk. Thank goodness for Dewey! Lunch was a brown rice tortilla (seriously) which was far from pliable but somehow satisfied my burrito craving ... chicken, goat cheese, fresh basil, caramelized onions and my special avocado dressing:

Lime Avocado dressing


1 clove garlic, peeled
1-2 ripe avocado
juice of 1-2 limes (to taste)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne or chili powder
pinch of salt

Combine all in a food processor or blender, play with the water and oil to get desired consistency. Great on salads!

Snack time. Guilt. I cheated on 20 tortilla chips--no gluten but clearly as I was devouring each morsel (sans salsa) I felt like a cheater. Didn't even tell L (sorry honey). Back on track the rest of the day. Had a banana before dinner.

Dinner was brown rice topped with a stir fry of tofu, asparagus, broccoli, onions and garlic with fresh parsley. It was yummy and I need to demonstrate more portion control. Not my strong suit.

What I really missed today was hot sauce!! That can't possibly be toxic ...
