The Carter Cleanse

I woke up this morning really desperate for that first cup of coffee... and then remembered today was the day I'm embarking on a three day cleanse with paleo-sister Leslie Carter. OMG. No coffee?! 
The better green smoothie:
Spinach, banana, coconut milk

First up: Lemon ginger water, (Huh. That doesn't sound like it's going to energize me), and a green detox smoothie. With apple, kale, lemon, cinnamon, flax seed and celery. It took me an hour to drink it. (No kidding.)

Mike is in Atlanta for the week -- He's going to miss out on all of the fun.

Vegetable Soup
DAY TWO of the Carter Cleanse: Soup is good, Smoothies ok, (I went for the banana, coconut milk, spinach today), but I'm dyyyyying without coffee. Just. Dying. One more day?!

DAY THREE of the Carter Cleanse: All fine except for the no-coffee thing. I caved in and had a decaf. (Thanks, Joe!) I just couldn't take it anymore. Another spinach/banana/coconut milk smoothie for breakfast -- pic is above -- (I had to delete the other. I just couldn't love it.) Veggie soup again tonight and then I'm done. First thing in the morning, I'm going to have a large coffee. Otherwise, I might not make it through P2.
