Update on My Palate Cleanse

Update on My Palate Cleanse

The past few days have been difficult.  I did have to add in protein to my tomato veggie soup after the first day.  For lunch I added 1/2 cup of plain yogurt and for supper lean grass fed hamburger.  Just being real with you all and letting you know my struggles.  Today I had eggs for breakfast instead of the green juice.  Even though the sugars in the juice are fruit I really feel like it was too much sugar for my system and that adding protein is more important.  Every one is different and I know I would have a lot of difficulty with being a vegetarian.  🙂  I like meat.  I just like to make sure that whomever I am getting the meat from is raising their animals in a humane manner before their life is ended.

For lunch I had a salad with albacore tuna and for supper we had baked chicken breast and steamed vegetables.  It is nice to have a bit different variety.  Six meals of veggie soup in a row is too many.  🙂  I do believe my joints are not hurting as much and I have lost six pounds this week.  Many of the cravings are back under control too.  That was my real goal with this.  I was just letting myself eat all kinds of starchy carbs and sugars and I really needed to get a handle on things.
