Day 3 fell on a beautiful, sunny Friday. We did your typical smoothies and Mark made a great dish for lunch: Lentils with roasted zucchini and squash and sautéed onion, carrots, bell pepper and kale. Just a little olive oil, salt, pepper and some fresh oregano from the farm.
Even though we were on IOP on that beautiful sunny day while everyone was drinking Coronas and Westbrook White Tai, I refrained. Water, water, water…and I was ok with that because I was feeling crappy.
Saturday and Sunday I cheated a little, I must admit. Again, great smoothies. For dinner we went to Ms Roses in West Ashley to see Mark Jackson Music (my honey – see link below). I had an amazing arugula salad with pomegranates and a cherry vinaigrette. The cheating part came with the feta on top. I ate it, and it was GOOD! I felt fine after as well. Sunday we were lucky enough to wake up with an ocean view at a friend’s house on Folly. She is a hostess with the mostess! Look at this spread…how could you not cheat a little? Just a few sips of wine and I had to have some fresh shrimp right off the boat and grilled to perfection, that’s all!
Monday I really didn’t feel like eating much. I had some smoothies and a late night salad. Salad was mixed arugula and greens with apple, honey, fresh squeezed lemon. So simple and so delicious!
Tuesday I had to be at work by 8, so I ran out with just the shake (no smoothie with fruit and greens) and a bunch of fresh blueberries. Again, I haven’t been too hungry, so it was fine until about 2. We got a bunch of beautiful produce from the Mt P farmer’s market. We also enjoyed some King Of Pops pops (I got Blood Orange Basil). I had some pickle samples which I thought would have been fine. Shortly after I ate them I got bloated, achy, blah, blah…no more pickles for me, unless it’s Bubbies.
I made a super-delicious smoothie for dinner: beets, spinach, cilantro, 1/4 lemon, mixed frozen berries. It’s beautiful too! Oh, and just so you know, I hate beets and could never eat them. I need them for my struggeling liver. I’m so excited I can have them now!
