WIAW: Detox Week 3

Fingers are crossed for a snow day today – we are supposed to get up to 10 inches! That’s huge in this area.

Breakfast: Green Monster in new tumbler! Straws make drinking these so much easier. I always make them too thick to slurp.


For two: 3 carrots, 1 banana, 3 cups frozen chopped spinach, 1 cup frozen mixed berries, 2 scoops brown rice protein powder, 2 scoops Greens+, 3 cups unsweetened almond milk. That makes 2-24oz monsters that take me over an hour to drink while getting ready. Pills: Vit D, Vit B, Vit C, mutli-vitamin, Fish oil, glucosamine, glutamine. (And yes, they are in a smiley face, thanks to my husband!)

It was a busy day at work after a 4-day weekend. I munched on grape tomatoes while processing paperwork and prepping for a big meeting. (<- I only said that so I sound important. But I’m not at all.)


A slightly later than usual lunch: leftover Italian Vegetable Soup with Vegan Pesto (stirred in) that got devoured all too quickly. It’s actually a pretty big bowl – 4 cups I think? And lots of sweet potato and parsnip to fill me up.


Also did really well on the water front – 3 Siggs at work and one at home.

Afternoon snack at the office: 2 kiwis, skin and all.


Afternoon snack at home so I don’t gnaw my arm off while cooking dinner: 3 tiny dates with almond butter.


Dinner was yet another orange soup. Recipe to come, tomorrow probably.


And I made a decent sized side salad to go with that looks kind of unappetizing but is really good: Earthbound Organics Herb Salad Mix + sundried tomatoes + capers + kalamata olives + homemade vinaigrette.


It was a fabulous dinner and relatively normal. I don’t think that you can tell by looking at my daily eats that I’m on a detox and that’s what I love about this program. It isn’t extreme. Anyone can do it.


Daily totals:

Calories: 1658
Carbs: 228g
Protein: 69g
Fat: 59g
Fiber: 54g (wowsers!)


I’m happy with that considering this is essentially a vegan diet. Normally, I’d shoot for a higher amount of protein but since I’m not weight lifting right now, it is less of an issue for me.

And with that, that’s the last WIAW for the 3-week detox. I’ll be back next week with a little recap/reflection post for this go around but if you are itching to hear more about it, check out this post from 2010.

  1. Everything in this post looks delicious, especially the soups. I have a couple of insulated cups, that my friends call Adult Sippy’s lol, but do you ever have trouble cleaning the straw? It’s the only thing I dislike about the cups.

    • Ours are super easy to clean as long as you do it right away. We just run hot water through them then throw them in the dishwasher (top rack only).

      • I haven’t tried running them through the dishwasher, I’ll have to do that! Thanks 🙂

  2. That actually does look like a totally doable detox. There’s something about detoxes that don’t allow any carbs that I just can’t handle, but this one looks balanced!
