Woke up this morning after a lovely night’s sleep. Last evening I sipped on some Sleepytime Tea while catching up some reading and could barely keep my eyes open by the time I climbed into bed.
Started today with some Yogi Perfect Energy Vanilla Spice Tea…yum! before heading to the gym. Last night I made some homemade prune “jam”: I learned this little trick from Kim Boyce’s wonderful “Good to the Grain” cookbook: take 1 cup prunes(oh right, the PC name is ‘dried plums’, LOL) and put in saucepan: cover with orange juice(you can also use mango juice): bring to a boil, cover, turn off heat and let sit for 30 minutes. Then puree this mixture in a food processor and store the ‘jam’ in a container in the fridge. This will keep for at least 3-4 weeks, if you can refrain from eating it! It is delicious on whole grain toast with peanut butter or in yogurt…might even try on buckwheat pancakes.
I am loving the way that I feel although admittedly it is hard not to reach into the jar of goodies that I keep in my office(chocolate covered berries/cherries/some mints. Going on this ‘cleanse’ makes me more aware of those unconscious foods that I eat throughout the day and how easily they can add up!!
