Day 9/10/11

Don't think I fell off my wagon, cart, or bus! I am still cleansing. Was so busy on day 8 with acupuncture after work and then straight to an Ani Difranco concert. So thankful for my old time friend for inviting me out with a free ticket. We got to reconnect from some time in our own space and enjoy a powerful woman's voice! What's not to love! I drank more water than I probably needed, but avoided drinks and pizza. The pizza was tough cause it's my favorite, Otto's mashed potato. I am sure there will be another time. A little disappointed that the concert was seated and people got angry for our group getting our groove on. However, we found the place out of the way with more like minded individuals and shook our groove thang. This is week two, which is an introduction of things like beans, oatmeal, and nuts. Gotta say I am pretty sad that the beans and oats are not liking my stomach. Will keep them eliminated for a little longer and try again. 

I don't have any art to share. My days have been cranking away. Also loose some sleep for one night and can't get that energy back. I truly felt hung over the morning after going out till 11am on a Tuesday night. My body really wanted its eight hours.

So what's better than a nice power breakfast the next morning?

Salmon, kimchi, and avocado!

I keep craving this breakfast, but my avocados are hard. It will be even more awesome when I can also add an egg on top!

Tonight I got out those lentil burgers I made last week. Fried those up with olive oil and they worked!

I would recommend a binder of either egg or breadcrumbs for the future. But they still worked to throw on the top of my salad. It was BLT night in our house, so this was a nice replacement for the bread.

Day 5 Pizza Nite

It feels so good to make it to the weekend. Feeling the length of this week with all my energy for this cleanse.  To be totally honest, while my food and art might look good, full disclaimer... this house is a mess. I have my juicer, slicer, and spiralizer hogging my counter top. I have piles of mail, piles of laundry. Heck I can't even weigh myself because my scale is covered with clothes. The great positive thing about this? My energy is so focused that small details are okay to ignore. I will get to this, I will create a system, clean house and place my spiralizee in a better spot. But for now my mind is clear, I feel so happy, I feel like I can spread this feeling easier to others. They say if we all focus on our own insides we all will naturally be better to one another. In a time of stretched ideas of love, I feel so good to be able to give positive energy out to those who need it! Tonight's food? Pizza! We make our own pizza dough (well my lovely husband and son do) and it's so good. But I skipped it tonight. It was really hard. I wanted to bite into this amazing crust and juicy cheese and pepperoni.

Now I normally make a more veggie focus than the pizza above, but Adrian (son) and I have this agreement that I get a small sliver of his pie (yes we all get our own pizza pie to create). No mama slice tonight, just the drool hanging from my mouth. 

I knew I needed to get some creativity going and wanted to still make a pizza to satisfy my desire. So with all my left over veggies from the week, I first took the baked slices of sweet potato and but them is a pizza deep dish with olive oil on the bottom.

Then I added pesto

More veggies, the baked leeks, beets, and fennel

Sprinkled nutritional yeast for my "cheese" 

Added halved pre baked Brussels sprouts and some wild caught scallops. Drizzled with olive oil and broiled to perfection. Yum.

Oh...and some art! Trees! Getting addicted to trees.
