Day 18 of the Ultimate Reset

Day 18 of the Ultimate Reset, complete!! Today was tough because there was a fun community event happening and I couldn't attend for many reasons: there was too much food temptation, I would have to bring like a gallon of distilled water, my packet of supplements, I wouldn't be able to eat, and I'd have to have timers on my phone...not exactly a party animal today, lol! So this was pretty tough, but instead I woke up, got my yoga and fruit in, and then worked! Yes, it's difficult being on a cleanse and having to turn down events, holidays, or going out...but I know I'll regret it if I do go and then end up splurging or just not having fun because I'm anxious the whole time about when I need to take my supplements, needing to prep for lunch, etc.


I love love love berries mixed with melon! It's beyond refreshing and I'll probably have to continue having some fruit every morning :)


Lunch was a delicious spinach salad, with Miso dressing, yummy baby heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, and 1/4 avocado--NOM!

For my snack, I had 1/2 scoop Chocolate Vegan Shakeology and then a small green apple--I always look forward to this time of day, it's like my pick me up!


Dinner was something I've never tried in my life, and I didn't even know it existed...Roasted Fennel Bulb. What! I know it sounds disgusting, BUT it was actually kind of good! Fun fact: it tasted like crunchy licorice and looked like onion rings!
I also had a side of Asparagus and Broccoli--super filling!


Roasted Fennel Bulb: 
Preheat oven to 350. Combine fennel with 1 tbsp olive oil and salt in a small bowl; mix well. Arrange the fennel "rings" in a single layer on a baking sheet (you cut it like an onion, but with the green sections off). Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden and tender.

For the side of veggies, I just boiled distilled water, and had asparagus, broccoli, and drizzled them with olive oil and sea salt.

Day 18 was a success overall! I'm trying new foods for the first time ever and I'm pleasantly surprised with the recipes! :)
