Spring Cleaning (Detoxing)

I think “detoxing” is kind of an ugly word (too many weird diet associations), but I’ve decided that it’s time for me to do a little internal spring cleaning. I know it’s not spring yet, but I am in great need of a fresh start. I’ve been feeling a little on the bloated and sluggish side, and my knee has been giving me problems again. Since reduced inflammation is one of the main detoxification benefits that I’m after, a large focus will be removing all inflammation triggering foods from my diet for a period of time. Lucky for me, Greg is on board too.

What we’re cutting out:

  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Soy
  • Wheat/gluten
  • Alcohol
  • Refined Sugar
  • Artificial Sweeteners

What we’re cutting back on significantly:

  • Caffeine
  • Salt

What we’ll be eating:

  • Loads of vegetables
  • Beans
  • Fruit
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Some gluten-free whole grains
  • Water galore
  • Tea

5-7 days of extra clean eating will commence tomorrow, 1/25.
