I had a Green Smoothie for breakfast. Drank the whole thing because I got hungry yesterday when I just drank 1/2. Brought pineapple and romaine lettuce for lunch and almonds for snacks. I have had several bowel movements today. I made the Quinoa salad for dinner. It definitely seems to be a side dish for me, not the only course. I will probably use it that way in the future. I wasn't excited about it's taste, but it was very colorful. Glad I put the tomatoes in it. I'm really wanting to get some fish in my diet. I have lost 4 pounds, so that is great. For the future, I hope to create a blend of this diet this week and some protein. I am pleased that I tried several dishes and kept on this vegan diet well. I wasn't so sure that I would make it in the beginning. Thanks for setting this up for us. Lynne

  1. Lynne,
    Your problem is not protein. It is the other way around, you have a high protein diet. excess protein does not get stored in the body, it gets excreted through the BM but mainly through the kidness which can give you kidney stones. There was plenty of protein in the detox but it was not in excess.

    You tend to think that protein is only in animal products. that is false. You may eat fish if you like it but it is not the only source of protein available to you. If you did not like the quinoa, I suspect you did not cook it properly, if this is your first introduction to it. It is actually a main dish not a side dish because it is filling.
    Maybe next time we should have a cooking class :)
    Congratulations for sticking with it and losing the weight. However, the weight will come back if you go back eating the way you use to.
