Day 4 Over The Hump

Update: Day 4

I got right to work this morning on my Coffee-Break Green Healer Juice and somehow I ended up making all the green juice first and then the beet juice separately.
It looked really cook when I added the two.
It's a magic genie!
The complete spread: Hot Lemon Water, Coffee-Break Green Healer Juice, and two cleanse tablets.

After my voice lesson, which went really well, I stopped at the coop on my way home to pick up some essentials that I had run out of. I decided to make "Bridge-and-Tunnel Beet Greens Soup" which included
  • 1 cup purified water
  • 1 cup beet greens, washed and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup sprouts
  • 1/4 tsp. jalapeno, deseeded and minced
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 apple cored
  • 1/2 large avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/8 tsp. Celtic sea salt
I forgot to get avocados at the coop! I decided to go ahead with it anyways and see if I could just go without.
Blended till smooth. I tasted the soup with a straw and literally, immediately after grabbed my wallet and a plastic bag, got on my bike and zoomed to the coop to get avocados. It just wasn't going to fly without them! It's a good thing I forgot avocados actually because I had also left my coconuts without realizing it!
Then I added the avocados to the disaster soup.
And blended again till smooth.
I topped it with the usual culprits: salt pepper and cholula.
This wasn't the best tasting soup in the world but it was alright. The beet greens have a really planty taste to them which I could live without but with salt and pepper it was fine.

I dreamt last night that I cooked fried pickles... think it has anything to do with the cleanse? haha. I am really craving solid, cooked foods again and it doesn't help that I love to read food blogs! All I want is banana bread and oatmeal and a sandwich! Only one more day to go though, and best believe I will have my first meals all planned out!

I'm going to make my coconut shake right now and maybe even my soup for dinner. I have opera from 4-8 tonight and I don't want to get caught starving.
