Today was definitely better than Day 2 of the detox. The only issue I had today was my insatiable hunger. Even though I was pretty much grazing all day, the hunger pangs never really disappeared, they just decreased in intensity. I was still having sudden cravings for something sweet, but not as intense as yesterday.
Breakfast: Black Beans, Fajita Veggies & Quinoa
I decided to switch things up and start off with a hearty breakfast instead of a smoothie. I ate the leftovers from my dinner last night for breakfast today.
Snack: Raw Hemp, Sunflower and Pumpkin Seed Mix
It wasn't long after I got to work that I already needed a snack. Surprisingly, this seed mix is remarkably more filling than it seems. It at least kept the hunger pangs down until I had lunch, which was a lot earlier than I usually eat.
Lunch: Queen of Quinoa's Detox Salad
I'm still not tired of this salad even though I had it for the third time. I also thought it was a little tastier, probably because the ingredients marinated in lemon juice and rice vinegar longer.
Snack: Green Apple & Almond Butter
Almond butter is a great source of protein at 7 grams per 2 tbsp. I helped myself to about 3 tbsp, just enough to enjoy with every bite of apple.
Dinner: Black Beans, Fajita Veggies & Quinoa
If there's one thing I learned from the past sugar detoxes, it's to cook enough food to last several days--even if it means having to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Luckily I wasn't tired of this dish even though it was my third time eating it.
