Kaeng Raeng Detox [Day Two]

I woke up feeling refreshed today. I worked out, 35 minutes on the elliptical, then the TIU She Sells Seashells Toning Workout, before breakfast. I noticed I’m much less hungry than I was yesterday, and I’m not craving any sweets (bonus!), actually warm whole foods like grilled vegetables and quinoa.

Breakfast: “Into the Blue” (I blended 1 packet + 32oz water + 1/2 frozen banana + 1/2C blueberries

Lunch: “Joyful” (I blended 1 packet + 24oz water + 8oz organic lemonade + 1/2C frozen strawberries)

Dinner: “Daybreak” (I blended packet + 24oz water + 8oz organic fresh squeezed OJ + 1/2C frozen pineapple)

Snack: Cucumber and Tomato Salad (organic cucumbers + organic sliced tomatoes + fresh ground pepper + fresh dill + oregano + white wine vinegar) & Raw Carrot Sticks

 

Kaeng Raeng Detox [Day One]


I’ve been wanting to do a detox, for a healthy refreshment and to help curb my “faux” sweets cravings, as I like to call them. Before I was a vegan, I never had much of a sweet tooth. When I discovered how to “veganize” desserts, I loved the subtle, not-too-sweet taste of the healthy alternative ingredients. I eat pretty clean and healthy (organic fruits & veggies, nothing processed, no artificial ingredients) with the addition of not always necessary vegan sweets and treats (Whole Foods chocolate chip cookies, dairy free ice cream, don’t even get me started on breakfast foods..) If I could eat french toast or cinnamon rolls everyday for breakfast, I most certainly would. I discovered the Kaeng Raeng Detox on Lauren Conrad’s blog. (Kim Barnouin, author of Skinny Bitch, is also an endorser of the cleanse.) After researching and reading many reviews, I decided it would be a great detox for me considering the smoothies are filling, and you’re able to consume unlimited raw fruits and veggies. After taking their quiz, I found the 6 day Master Cleanse was right for me. I will keep a daily update to share my experience on the cleanse to see if it is right for you.

Breakfast:  “Into The Blue” Smoothie (I blended packet + 24oz water + 8oz unsweetened almond milk + 1/2 banana + 1/2C organic blackberries)

Lunch: “Joyful” Smoothie (I blended packet + 24oz water + 8oz organic lemonade + 1C ice + 1/2C organic strawberries) & 1/2 Grapefruit & Green Tea

Snack: Cucumber & Grape Tomato Salad (organic cucumbers + organic grape tomatoes + fresh ground pepper + fresh dill + oregano + white wine vinegar) & Fruit Salad (organic blueberries + organic red grapes + organic apple) & Green Tea

Dinner: “Daybreak Smoothie” (I blended packet + 24oz water + 8oz organic fresh squeezed OJ + 1/2 frozen banana) This combination is my favorite thus far. It reminds me of an Orange Julius.

The smoothies taste good, are very filling, but are timely to consume. The only time I felt hungry was late afternoon, but raw fruits and veggies filled me up until my dinner smoothie. I was happy to find that I wasn’t starving and didn’t feel deprived like the effect some cleanses tend to have. So far so good 😉

Pop It

Neon sits top on the trend ladder this season. Colorblocking is chic for day, but taking the trend to night, is all about making a statement. Punch up your LBD with neon accessories. Earrings, shoes, and a sleek clutch make a chic statement when “popped” against an all black palette. A neon statement item can be a great investment piece to transform any neutral ensemble in your wardrobe.
