Welcoming day eight with still a bit of itching and scratching due to my allergic reaction, but it is getting better… slowly… well that’s what I’m telling myself, hopefully if I believe it, it will come true… haha. I actually want to rip off my skin, that’s how frustrating it is… but, hey it’s life. Shit happens!! Anyways, back to this cleanse of mine, which I’m pretty impressed that I have managed thus far, no meat or alcohol.
Morning routine, no juice, I woke up super late… so just two coffees and a lot of work. I had a bunch of fruit, mango, kiwi and a peach… which was extremely nutritious. I drank about one litre and a half of water before a late lunch / earlier dinner, which again my friend made for me, given my current condition, that is, my allergy to my laundry detergent. , which leaves me itching and scratching more then anything else. Again, it was a meal filled with goodness. Spicy vegetable spiral pasta with mozzarella cheese!!!
This time I’m sharing the picture before the recipe, changing it up… it’s good to do things differently every once and a while. Hopefully, it entices you to read on and try it out for yourself. So, here is the recipe… pasta was vegetable pasta made from bell peppers and broccoli, but whole wheat pasta works just the same. Vegetables used were carrots (shredded), cabbage, red pepper, french onion and broccoli. The vegetables were diced and cooked in two tablespoons of olive oil and approximately one quarter cup of each, cooked in garlic and a bit of hot sauce. The pasta cooked with chicken broth and water until al dente, once drained mixed with vegetables and added mozzarella cheese and stemmed for two minutes…. DONE AND DONE!!! Super simple, suple easy…. that is one thing I love about vegetarian recipes, vegetables are quick and easy.
Snacks, FRUIT!!! NUTS!!!! And, lots of water!!! I had some pineapple, mango and kiwi. As you know, I eat a lot of kiwi due to my anemia and I added pineapple into my day to help boost my immune system, as I continue to battle this allergy of mine. Mango also helps boosts immunity, but I needed some additional assistance, as this has been a battle and a huge struggle, for I have never been allergic to anything before, so this is all new to me. And, I hate taking medicine, so I’m attempting to speed up the healing process, so that I can stop taking pills. As for the nuts, I had almonds and peanuts as filler snack through the night. My water intake was back up to three litres, but no exercise, which has been extremely frustrating for me, as I want to squeeze something in, but the itching and scratching makes it difficult. For, I could deal with the over exhaustion, but the discomfort felt throughout my body is another thing, it creates frustration and lack of focus, leaving me drained.
Anywho, onto day nine….
