Kaeng Raeng [Day Three]

I woke up feeling fine and did a 45 minute HIIT workout on the elliptical. After my workout I felt a bit nauseous, and lightheaded but after I drank my breakfast smoothie I felt energized and full. I had a cucumber and tomato salad in the late afternoon, then completed the TIU Summer Slim Toning Workout. Afterwards, I drank my “Daybreak” smoothie to replenish. Today’s version has been my favorite combination. Still feeling less hungry, I actually had a hard time finishing my smoothies today, because I was so full. I can officially say the detox has definitely helped eliminate sweets cravings! The plan says you can add yogurt to any of the smoothies, instead I decided to make fresh berry yogurt pops for a cool treat (using So Delicious Plain Soy Yogurt). It actually tasted too sweet for me, I couldn’t eat it.

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 fresh squeezed OJ + 1/2C frozen banana)

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

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

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 😉
