The next few posts will be slightly different from my usual ones. I’m doing a 10-day vegan detox and thought it would be fun to post the menu and recipes I’m following and how I’m feeling. The detox program is led by Linda Petursdottir (http://simplewellbeing.com/). Please visit her site for more information.
My initial thought when finding out more about the plan was, oh boy… this is going to be a lot of cooking. However, that passed, and now I’m just really excited! The idea of giving your body a “reset” without being hungry is awesome. I think what resonated with me for this detox is that it’s a holistic approach, with one aspect being a change in what you put in your body.
In an effort to not feel overwhelmed with cooking, I decided to keep the same menu for 2-3 days so I wouldn’t be cooking a lot each day. I will post these menus over the next 10 days, with links to the recipes.
