On June 6th I’m having minor gum surgery and my dentist recommended that I don’t eat solids for a week. It’s like a sign because I have been thinking of doing this anyway. The unfortunate part about this is that I don’t have the option of taking a day off and eating solids. I’ve never done well with being forced into a situation. I suppose I will have to. I guess the main fear is being hungry and missing the fact that I won’t be chewing anything.
Our morning smoothie is always fantastic and I look forward to it every day, plus, I really enjoy our green juice in the afternoon, so am I going to be able to get over the hump of not having my huge salad in the middle? Hhm…might have to do a test run day and see what happens. I figure I’ll have to just keep drinking. I am trying to break it down as I would my usual day where I eat every two hours or so.
Breakfast: Lemon water + smoothie
Mid morning: red juice
Lunch: green juice
Mid afternoon: lemon water
Dinner: green juice
Smoothie: Sun warrior (vanilla), hemp heart, chia seed, strawberries, Almond Breeze (vanilla), cinnamon
Green juice: Kale, spinach, parsley, cilantro, collard green, celery, carrot, apple, dandelion, swiss chard.
Red Juice: Green juice + lemon + beet – apple
I might switch up the green/red juices, I don’t know. It’s whatever we have on hand really. I am slightly worried that I won’t be getting the proper vitamins/minerals. I need to do more research.
If you have recommendations – please let me know!
