After a weekend of excessive food and fun, I feel like the best thing for my health is to detox - everything.
Too much wine, too many heavy meals and I start feeling sluggish. The couch looks good and yet when I pop onto it, I can't rest.
Time to cleanse - mentally and phsyically. To clear my mind and cleanse my house, meditation and burning sage and incense.
Since we're getting ready for a trip. there's no better time to clear out the pantry and fridge than right now in the 11 days we have before departure.
The challenge is this: eat only meals prepared with what is on hand. Will I cheat and buy eggs and milk? Not if I can help it.
I usually have a pretty well-stocked kitchen. We also have a lovely little garden with fresh greens and herbs, though no veggies yet, so we have some variety. It's doubtful we will starve. In fact, the first days will probably be pretty normal fare for us.
Lean days are ahead, but I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with three eggs and no milk.
