Our First Meal

When you stop a cleanse like this you really should ease into eating solid food again. Most people take two or three days of drinking juice before they jump into it. Not us, we wanted food and we wanted it now!  The first day after the cleanse, we have a feast! A fruity feast!

I went to Whole Foods and bought every kind of fruit they had - apples, mangos, grape, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, kiwi, melon and pineapple. the only thing I didn't buy was citrus. I think I have had enough citrus for awhile.

Our feast was amazing! I never knew fruit could taste so good! Afterwards, we felt just fine. I don't think we rushed into it too quickly. It was one of the best meals I have ever had.

39, 78, 13, 4, 7 - 17

No those aren't the winning lottery numbers. That's what what we each consumed during our cleanse.  39 lemons, 78 ounces of maple syrup, 13 teaspoons of cayenne pepper, 4 gallons of salt water and 7 pints of tea.  What's the last number? That's how much weight I lost - 17 pounds! That's a lot of everything all the way around.

So, was it worth it?  Yes, it sure was. I feel better than I have in years.  I have more energy, better concentration and I sleep like a baby. Losing the weight isn't so bad, either.  The best thing is, though, that this gave us a kickstart to a healthier lifestyle. I'm glad it's over, but don't be surprised is we do it again next year. You can count on it.
