Cleanse me Clean

This week I embark on my Wild Rose Herbal Detox cleanse for 12 days. I've been procrastinating this cleanse for a while ever since I purchased it in Vancouver in February from an organic grocery store. I've done a cleanse before but it's been a while, so I thought I'd give one a try since I heard good reviews on it. I've never done a cleanse which has a recommended menu before - so this was certainly going to be a challenge. Especially since many of the foods I love are on the DO NOT EAT list. So here's what I have to abstain from over the next 12 days:
Anything with flour (eg. bread, pasta, crackers)
Peanuts (Peanut Butter too)
Dried Fruit
Processed cereal
Ice Cream
Tropical Fruit
No processed foods or snacks
Anything fermented: eg. miso, wine, beer

So far, I've only broken it once - while having a fab dinner with a friend at Jean Georges' Spice Market in Meatpacking :P But the cleanse has been pretty effective so far and I'm only on day 3! :) Thankfully my FreshDirect order came in today with tons of yummy vegetables - so I think I'm all set for the next 9 days and more! Here's to eating healthy!
