activating almonds & a detox

On arrival home late Thursday night I took full advantage of Jay’s tiredness after a 12 hour road trip to announce that we’d be starting a 3 day detox!

No wheat, gluten, rice, dairy, meat, sugary or processed foods! Just fruit & veggies!

I awoke early Friday morning and went to procure all the goodness that we’ll be pumping our body full of over the next few days.

I am in complete hysterics every time we talk about the “activating almonds”! The pretentiousness! 

Apparently it’s all the rage. Read about the benefits [here].

I have to tell you that I’m feeling pretty shitty. The detox is totally working and I must have had some serious toxins in my body (thanks to the month of December which included Christmas parties, dinners out, Christmas, NYE & holiday food!) so I’ve got a cranking headache (can’t take a Neurofen) and I feel lethargic. Last night I went to bed early with a cranking headache and body aches but this evening (day2) I’m not feeling too bad. Drinking a lot of water is essential to flush out the toxins.

After an afternoon nap peppered with dreams of juicy steak, you know what? The activated almonds are growing on me!
