I decided to start eating larger mid-morning snacks on juice mornings because I've found that only juice or juice with a small snack leaves me feeling hungry at work during a time when I need to be the most focused. In Crazy Sexy Diet, Kris Carr suggests adding a sprouted grain cereal with nut or seed milk an hour or so after juicing. So I bought Food for Life Ezekial 4:9 Whole Wheat Sprouted Grain Cereal and Sol Sunflower Seed Milk:
Now, you may be thinking, "But I thought this cleanse was supposed to be gluten-free?" It is. And I didn't even think about that when I purchased this cereal, but it was the only sprouted grain cereal at Whole Foods. And Kris did say to try a "sprouted grain cereal." After I realized the problem, I went to Food for Life's website to see if sprouted grains are magically considered gluten-free. Here's what I found:
"Any product that contains wheat (including semolina, durum, spelt, triticale, and kamut) rye, barley, or oats cannot be considered Gluten-Free. What is important is the sprouting process, through enzymatic activity, changes gluten to a more digestible or tolerable state. Many individuals with mild gluten sensitivities use sprouted products with no adverse side affects or allergic reactions. However, each person’s individual constitution is different."So I'm gonna say it's okay for me to have this on the cleanse. I know I don't have a gluten sensitivity because I've tried gluten-free cleanses before and had no adverse effects adding gluten back into my diet (thank goddess).
As for the rest of the day, I had leftover Raw Goddess Soup from Crazy Sexy Diet for lunch. It's made with red bell pepper, lettuce, kale, garlic, cayenne, dulse, and flax oil:
And I paired that with Shaved Kale Avocado Salad, also from Crazy Sex Diet:
This simple raw kale salad is massaged with both olive oil and avocado for lots of fun, healthy fat. I shredded the kale in my food processor to get the shaved effect. The recipe doesn't explain how to shave kale, and that sounds difficult. But the food processor made it easy.
My afternoon snack was an orange and Food for Life Gluten-Free Pecan Rice Bread with Raw Almond Butter:
After work, I hit the gym for some elliptical time and weight lifting. And then dinner was more leftover Teriyaki Tofu, Millet, and Cabbage Hemp Salad. I didn't take a picture since I've already posted it, but you can see it here. That's it for my leftovers though. Tomorrow is a brand new food day!
