New Year's Detox in Photos

Chickpea and quinoa salad

We did it! Yesterday was the last day of our ten days new year's detox and I'm proud to say that we made it through the whole 10 days menu. I lost 2kg as a bonus which makes me very happy. Definitely a nice start to the new year. We should now feel “rejuvenated and fit as a fiddle”. Well, I can say I feel great!

It wasn't always easy though. I didn't have cravings, but because of overeating during Christmas, my stomach was expanded, and small portions often made my tummy rumbling. Surprisingly enough, P. seemed to get used to the detox food better than me. He even took a liking to quinoa (it is a very welcome change because I really like quiona)! Overall, it's been a positive experience.

On the other hand, our detox gave me no chance to share some recipe here. Some of the dishes were not very appetising (usually lacking any herbs or seasoning), and abundant presence of vegetable quinoa and carrot in a daily menu didn't seem interesting either. You can imagine how much I look forward to trying new recipes and sharing them with you! I took a few pictures of dishes that looked quite appetising.

If you are curious which detox plan I followed, I was googling for a while and found this detox online on woman&home website. I also stumbled upon Gwyneth Paltrow's detox on her GOOP website but that one seemed too drastic to me. Honestly I was willing to clean my body but I wasn't prepared to starve and kill myself. :) The woman&home detox was pretty much bearable.
