Cleanse: Day 4

Share the joy

It’s Monday and it’s chilly out. That means today is the perfect day to try out that Morning Glory Porridge recipe.

Smoothie: This is where the magic happens.

Breakfast: I used water instead of almond milk, banana and frozen berries because that’s what I had. It was a nice warm followup to my berry smoothie. Awesome way to start the day.

Exercise: interval running, 30 minutes.

Lunch: I like to change up my leftovers just enough so I don’t feel like I’m eating the same thing again. It helps to have a spiffy stainless steel container to keep all the goodness in too.






So far, I’m feeling really great on the cleanse. I always find it surprising how light I feel even though I’m eating all day long.
