detox e-book. I'm all in and totally on board for the concept and the plan! I will say that starting on a Tuesday (when I didn't have time to plan and cook meals for the week) has been pretty tough. I'm making in through though.
After reading the program, however, I do have some terms and conditions that I wanted to share with you all. I do plan to share all of my meals and snacks on my facebook page, but there will be a few different things that I will be eating that aren't exactly on the plan. I don't want anyone to be looking at what I'm eating and say... "Hey! You ate THAT?! That's not allowed!" I'm also going to give you my rationale behind it.
First, as I mentioned before, I'm a nursing mom, so the plan actually has modifications for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. According to the plan, I need to eat a little bit of a nutrient dense carb at each meal. This includes sweet potatoes, butternut squash, white potatoes, etc... So, I'll be eating some foods that others who are doing the 21 DSD shouldn't eat.
Also, according to Chris Kresser's The Healthy Baby Code, I need to drink about a quart of full fat, grass-fed milk/dairy per day. I'm eating as much dairy as possible to get to that goal, but I have never been a fan of milk. I don't like it and never really have. The only time I ever really had milk was in a bowl of cereal or with some oreos, but since both of those are out of the question, I've had to find some way to stomach the taste of milk. Sooooo, I've been drinking chocolate milk. Now I know that this is definitely not on the detox, but I'm going to keep drinking about 1/4 cup of chocolate milk mixed into my whole milk. I'll hopefully be able to get rid of the chocolate soon, but I just can't choke down plain milk.
Also, peanut butter is definitely not on the detox, or on paleo. I do, however, want to eat a little bit per day. Since Chase is getting exposure to whatever I eat, I want him to have the exposure to peanuts. I don't intend to eat peanuts or feed them to him when he's older, but I don't want him to have a peanut allergy. I work in a school and I have seen some crazy allergies and definitely don't want him to go through that if he doesn't have to. I know that Chase will be less susceptible to allergies because I'm infusing his gut with tons of good probiotics, nor do we have allergies in our family. I just don't want to push it, so I'm going to eat a little bit per day. Don't worry, it's not that super processed, sugary stuff that hardly resembles a peanut.
Other than that, I'm going to be gung ho! Let the journey begin!
