We just finished six days of the cleanse and let me tell you, we are bored with lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. If this is all we are going to have for another whole week, then we are going to change things up a bit and have some fun! Tonight we had a little taste test of three maple syrups:
- Trader Joe's 100% Pure Vermont Maple Syrup
- Trader Joe's 100% Pure Maple Syrup
- Kirkland 100% Pure Organic
As you can tell this isn't a fancy taste test. No expensive syrups for us. However, it's key that they are all 100% pure. You see, the syrup provides a lot of vitamins and nutrients that allow you to go without food for the duration of the cleanse. If you didn't have this syrup you wouldn't be able to do it. We've already gone through over 2 quarts of syrup so why not see which we like the best?
Well, there isn't really a huge difference. The Vermont is a little darker and richer. The other Trader Joe's syrup is sweeter. The Kirkland is the thickest, with a flavor in between.
Does it make a difference in the drink? Nope. It still tastes the same. Changing the syrup doesn't really do anything. So, get whatever you want, just make sure it's pure.
We both free great at today. I had tons of energy and I am finally sleeping well. My body pushed out the last of it's solids today and I feel lighter. So far I have lost 11 pounds on this cleanse. I am starting to see it's positive effect on me.
What's next for us? Well, another week of the cleanse. Tomorrow night we are going to try adding one or two limes to the mix. Now that should spice things up!
