For about a week, I cut out sugars, salt, alcohol, processed foods, oils and baked goods. Because I don't really eat much of that already, it wasn't very challenging, but I wanted to be diligent to give my body and digestive system a rest. The following pictures chronicle what I did eat. As you can see, I didn't starve.
I actually eat this for breakfast every morning already: 1/2 cup oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon, and a chopped banana. If I'm feeling extra sweet, I add a 1/2 Tablespoon of agave nectar or maple syrup, but I often leave it unsweetened.
This was a yummy conglomeration of the vegetables I had at my disposal: frozen peas, fingerling potatoes, mushrooms, broccoli and a little rice, all steam-sauteed in a pan and sprinkled with different herbs and spices.
More frozen peas, fingerling potatoes, and mushrooms, this time along with salad greens, chopped carrots, and crisp apples. Delicious.
