Day 3. Okay day three! Some of you may be feeling more energized, you might feel lighter and you may be feeling overall happier! But the majority of you are probably not feeling this way. Today you might be feeling lethargic, tired, cranky, hungry and also you might have the worst headache of your life. This is all expected on day three. It will get better, we promise! Something that you may be curious about and not a lot of people talk about is the whole bathroom situation. You know exactly what we're talking about hehe. What the heck is going on with my bowels!? So basically what's happening internally is that toxins are being released from the body and are being flushed from your system. That's why we recommend you're drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day. This will help tremendously with the process of cleaning out the toxins in your body. So why is this happening? Let's take a look at the pills we are taking..... does any of them sound like they may be the culprit? That's, right. Anything that sounds like Laxaherb is safe to assume it's behind your regular bathroom visits. As we mentioned before, this supplement is in charge of helping to clean the intestinal tract. So this is VERY normal for almost everyone who does the cleanse. However, if you are feeling like your bowel movements are over excessive, if you are starting to experience nausea or vomiting or any abdominal pain is present then we recommend you either cut back to taking one pill a day or eliminate it all together. It's super important that you listen to your body and respond to what it's telling you. Only you know your body better than anyone else. This cleanse will still work and be beneficial for you if you need to cut back on the Laxaherb. So don't give up! Happy Cleansing!
These pancakes are delicious for any meal of the day. If you don't mind a savoury breakfast we like to drizzle some of the "topping sauce" that we keep on hand at all times that we used on the battered white fish recipe from Day 2 of the Cleanse.
We modified the recipe that we used by omitting coconut flour. By omitting the flour it simply makes the pancake a little soggier but, hey, its still pretty darn tasty!
The reality is that during the 12 days you are probably going to end up eating out. One good option is going for sushi. But don't forget to take your Braggs with you! In the picture you will see that we have poured some from our giant bottle into a smaller one for meals on the go.
Also, here are some tips for ordering that might be helpful. Some of you may not know that sushi rice contains rice wine vinegar. Does this mean that all nigiri and rolls are forbidden. Yes, unless you request that your nigiri or rolls be made out of regular rice. Fussy. Yes. Happens once a year. Yes. So with a great big smile on your face and a thankful heart go ahead and make the request!
We used this recipe for the falafels:
For the tahini sauce we used this recipe:
