As usual, my holiday eating/drinking was out of control…nothing must go to waste!  What I didn’t chow down the first day it was made was put into the refrigerator, so everytime I opened the door, I felt challenged to eat it all.. On New Years Day, I threw in the towel, waved the white flag, and cleaned it out to make room for a 6-day cleanse and detox…

Kale, Spinach, Green Beans, Zucchini, Ginger, Lemons, Cucumbers, Carrots, Sweet potato, and apples take up a lot of room…   So the fight began again to empty the fridge, only this time it was all fresh, God-made food.  I spent most of my days chopping…I worked that blender to the blade…  The mean green smoothies were refreshing, but if I don’t have to eat kale again for a while, that will be fine.  The superfood soup was different from my usual diet (cabbage) soup, with beans and more kale.  You eat it everyday so I was glad to see it go, even though it was tasty.  I still have some spinach salad left–no kale.  I bought too many green beans, and in an effort to use them all have grown nauseous at the sight of them.

All in all, though, I feel absolutely greener…my ama has been flushed…my liver is purring along.  What I’ve craved the most, however, is Cheese of any sort, Bread in any form, Pasta in whatever shape…

While I was chopping, the amaryllis were blooming…I usually give these away, but they have bloomed so much earlier this year…
