While at the beauty salon, I caught up on some celebrity gossip and found an article regarding Gwyneth Paltrow’s professionally prescribed dietary detox regimen. Sounded interesting although the quantity of food is for the birds. The recipes look tame enough so I’m probably going to give a few of them a try. I really do believe the saying, “you are what you eat” (which doesn’t mean that I’m perfect and never indulge in junk). Maybe a good consequence of dietary detox is energy pick-me-ups? We could all use a little of that; I know I definitely do. There’s also the issue of getting enough fluid intake per day and good regular sleep patterns (I definitely need improvement). Brave or not, these are some of the recipes I’m willing to give a go. BTW, I am not a big soy lover (even if it’s a good thing). Wish me luck for a new and improved me =) –>
*Update 02/24/2009: I was a little disappointed that the Blueberry Almond Shake wasn’t as yummy as I’d hoped. It tasted a little like soy milk to me =P. I guess that the blueberries were not as sweet because they are not really in season/at their best peak right now. Still, I’m fairly certain that there might be someone out there who would like this recipe. No blueberries will go to waste; I bought a big container of plain yogurt and they will be blended together soon (me, of little faith, sort of anticipated that I may not like the drink). Maybe I can pick up some bananas too for this new concoction?
