Last night I felt as if I had been run over by a bus. Literally. Detox do your worst :( To celebrate getting this far, I lay motionless on our bed all evening, wrapped in a blanket feeling really quite sad but for no particular reason and watched "Bruised" the new film by Halle Berry on Netflix - it seemed somehow appropriate! Have you seen it yet? It has a very real feel to it - its about MMA cage fighting, Halle Berry stars as a mum to a small boy trying to fight her way back up the ranks. There are parts that are just so sad - when her son hears "Just the Two of Us" on a loud speaker - wow his reaction was so raw - and it made me sob even harder! Definitely worth a look especially if you enjoy watching Halle Berry being beaten to a pulp. Ah Hem... By the way, have you ever felt tearful on the start of a detox journey?
But that was yesterday! Knowing that at some point on this reset I was could feel a bit low, I had made an appointment last week for a reflexology treatment and woke up this morning looking forward very much to having a space to relax in and do nothing (again)! Worth every penny and I came away from the treatment feeling less brain foggy and more alert than I had done in a long time also the almost constant pain in my ankle had receded and I managed the whole day without any pain medication - this is huge! When you plan to reset your eating habits, add some treatments in to your schedule so that there are some good things to look forward to during the week, every little helps :)
Paleo Meals we ate Today
Meanwhile, back to food. This paleo day started with a lovely sausage breakfast! There are many things I love about our Primal Cut Sausages but this in particular - that I don't even have to think about them to know they are real food and by that I mean that they are made from the very best free range Yorkshire pork, there are no hidden nasties, no rusk, no sugar, no fillers, no oats, no preservatives and gluten free. That's why we started Primal Cut because all other sausages were a compromise and we are not about that! Oh No!
Breakfast was a pack of our Breakfast Sausages, sliced and fried with onion and topped with spinach and a fried egg, Simplicity itself.
Lunch was a prawn cocktail with more fresh microgreens (remember my eating goal is an emphasis on leafy green vegetables). We used the Hunter and Gather avocado mayo to make the dressing and combined this with lemon zest and lemon juice. Again, another great paleo product for clean eating and sugar free. We love Hunter and Gather!
Supper was a spinach and onion omelette with roasted green beans followed by some fresh berries, an apple and a small hand ful of Brazil nuts. Mike was hungry and added two of our low carb bagels, toasted and slathered in butter to his evening meal. Very happy
And that's it! I'm off to watch Gogglebox with Ted - does your dog watch TV too - how are you spending your evening?
