Day 5 is done, which means I’m halfway through the cleanse!* I’ve already noticed my taste buds adjusting. The big test was giving my kids animal crackers (which were a slight–okay, BIG–addiction for me before), and I didn’t feel the need to grab any for myself. You’ve gotta celebrate the little victories, right? 🙂

Here’s today’s rundown:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and an orange

Lunch: Salad with leftover chicken from last night

Supper: Blackened tilapia (One of my all-time favorite fish recipes found HERE. I used olive oil instead of butter.); Pan-roasted tomatoes with herbs (Recipe found HERE) — I just have to go on record and say this meal seriously made my taste buds do a happy dance. Who says no salt and no sugar have to mean no flavor?! 🙂

Snacks: Cherries; Cucumber slices with hummus; Apple slices with crunchy peanut butter on top; Baked cinnamon banana slices

Tea of Choice: Apricot & peach green tea from a local roaster

Exercise: Elliptical machine

Energy Level: Pretty good! I took both kids to the grocery store with me–including a mad dash through the rain. All of this after doing the elliptical in the morning, so I’d say that’s a good energy day. 🙂

Since it’s the weekend, I’m keeping it short and sweet. See you tomorrow!

    Great job!! 🙂 I confess my most healthy choice yesterday was skipping the sour cream at Chipotle! But I also confess I do love a burrito bowl! {And most of it’s pretty good for you!}

    Nice work on skipping the sour cream, Bekah! A victory is a victory. 🙂
