But the good news is that today is day 7 of detox, and that means I am finito after dinner tonight! Wahooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I didn’t have time to make my secret spinach smoothie, so breakfast was at the office… greek yogurt mixed with a little stevia and organic raspberries.
lunch was split pea soup from soup co (same as day 2, I forgot to snap a pic!),
and then an apple & string cheese for a snack later
I’m seriously so bored with veggie burgers… but it was exciting to roast some fennel for dinner. I’ve never cooked fennel before, it’s really delicious! Cut the tops of the bulbs, slice each bulb in half lengthwise, and then slice each half into strips. Toss in olive oil with salt and pepper, then spread out onto a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for an hour, flipping the pieces around a bit after half an hour.
Served with brown rice, corn, a veggie burger with caramelized onions, and butternut squash… not bad. Actually, I think I’m veggied out. D & both agreed we weren’t dying for the butternut squash so it is now in the freezer and will become soup at a later date. A couple bites of corn and half a veggie burger later I was done… full from snacking on fennel as it cooked? Fed-up? I don’t know, but once those plates were gone from our laps detox was officially over!
And what better way to celebrate than a glass of bubbles while watching an old Barefoot Contessa episode?!
