Day Three A mixture of fruits and vegetables of your choice. Any amount, any quantity. No bananas yet. No potatoes today.
Without a doubt, Day 3 was easier than the first 2. Fruits and veggies only is definitely my natural element! The grilled bell peppers (see recipes) were amazing. Even though I made it up, I give Hubby all the credit for that recipe. I had him grill 5 of them so I have leftovers for day 6. I know, I know……my recipe has tomatoes in it. But according to answers.com, I can count them as veggies(http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Are_tomatoes_considered_a_fruit_or_a_vegetable),so I will. And since the diet doesn’t have any specifications against it, I feel comfortable making this exception. (not to mention, I’m a tomato fanatic).
Here’s a fun fact: did you know that some think the tomato was the “forbidden fruit” from the Garden of Eden in Genesis? (Years ago, I took a 3 year bible overview course that followed Wilmington’s Guide to the Bible; that was one of the points of view it showed). The yellow ones have called the “golden apple” according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomato
Anyhow, back to the task at hand.
I’m feeling less bloated today from the water. I make frequent trips to the bathroom still, but I don’t feel like floating away like I did the first 2 days. The water consumption part of the diet is a good habit to keep, I hope I don’t revert to my cola habit when I’m done with this detox. After all, I am on a quest for healthier living. My body is the Lord’s temple after all. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;” 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)
Today was the easiest day for me to follow. My body will probably rebel on Beef day (at least I have the tomatoes to keep me happy). My son said “Don’t worry mom, I’ll do the beef thing with you.” Easy for him to say…..he’s the opposite of me and would eat nothing but red meat every day if I let him. Thanks son. LOL
