I really appreciate your quick response. =)
Per the rutabagas – yes, I’ve often eaten them prior to the detox. You can make really tasty “fries” with them. Why do you suggest to wait 2 weeks?
Since avocados are actually food for the beneficial bacteria in your intestines I will definately add them to my shopping list for after the detox. How many would you recommend a day? Should you eat them daily?
Your explanation about not holding to a set timeline is helpful. I over plan everything so I guess this new way of eating will teach me a thing or two. =)
Per the meat- I do plan to buy only organic chicken breast from a farmer’s market called Sprouts. If I do that I will shoot for once a day during my work hours….and try to eat more organic eggs….maybe just go vegetarian during the weekends. How many eggs is too much a day? Yes, I did read the red meat discussion. I will avoid it for at least a few months.
When will I know when it’s a good time to try things out like coconut milk?
I was a little worried about getting chicken from the Outback when I phoned them and asked about their chicken. Sounds like their chicken is from Tyson….who has been rumored to use steroids and growth hormones. They said their steak was minimally processed so I figured that would have been a safer choice. I know we’re trying to minimize our intake on added hormones and steroids. Maybe I should just shoot for a salad with a few substitutions.
I will try and use your advise with my family. It’s tough eating out….
Thank you so much!
