2017 Long Weekend Detox

As promised, you can find my 2017 "Long Weekend" Detox here.  It's my twist on The 2017 Annual goop Detox with a sprinkling of Kimberly Snyder’s Beauty Detox recipes and tips.  For reference, the Annual goop Detox webpage, which includes a link to the shopping list, can be found here.  And, you can click here to see Kimberly Snyder make her Glowing Green Smoothie (GGS).  Please note that I did not get around to making the detox granola bars.  Also, I did not get around to making either of the lunch salads or miso sweet potatoes.  We ate the lentil soup, turkey chili, and small side salads for lunch most days except one, when we had a couple of energy balls for lunch due to an out-of-state appointment that snuck up on us.  If you do give it a try, I'd love to hear how it went and what you thought of my adjustments in the comment section at the end of this post.   

My Review of the Annual goop Detox

Who participated:  Me, my husband, my (adult) son generally followed the meal plan for 5 days.  My two youngest daughters generally followed on days 4 & 5.

What we thought:  Overall, my husband and I felt energetic and satiated while on the plan this past week.  He had no cravings and I had one or two mild cravings for chocolate.  On the flip side, my son was ready to throw in the towel on the third day.  The girls were excited to be joining in on day four and, because they are familiar with oatmeal and fried rice, enthusiastically ate their "healthy meals".  This week, I incorporated the remaining left-overs into meals early in the week, have already made the bone broth again a couple of times, and continue to begin my mornings with warm lemon-ginger water. 

How did it impact my weight:  I easily lost 1.5 pounds during the detox.
