Today is a special edition of WIAW: Day 1 of my Skin Detox Diet.
I am working on a review of a cookbook titled, 28 Days to Younger Skin. Look for the full review soon… I will not be participating in the full 28-day plan for various reasons that I will explain in that forthcoming post, but I did decide to do the first three days, which is a detox diet. Here’s what Day 1 (Monday) looked like:
First up: two morning beverages. The first:
- 2 cups cold water
- 2 tsp. flax-seed oil
- bunch of fresh mint
- slice fresh ginger
Blend, enjoy (serves two). This did not taste as bad as I expected, at all! I actually kind of liked it, even though usually flax-seed oil tastes strong and unpleasant.
Second beverage: green juice while I read up on the diet and the philosophy and science behind it. This makes 4 servings:
- 3 green apples
- 1 small beet
- 1 stalk celery (a whole celery plant like you buy in the store, not 1 rib)
- bunch kale
- fresh ginger
- sprouts of choice (we used radish)
This also tasted pretty good.
