day 2 potato island

so last night i got super hungry around 8pm.  ended up back in the kitchen and baked up some fries. warmed up some of the cheesy sauce i prepped. it did the trick and i have leftovers for today!

i’m going to try my best NOT to use ketchup during this cleanse. i know a little sugar is allowed, but i’m trying to quit my sugar habit and i don’t think ketchup will help me with that. maybe i’ll try making some fresh homemade ketchup at some point but for now i’ll use the cheesy sauce as my condiment!

morning weight: 156 (-1 pound)

breakfast:
hashbrowns with fresh heirloom tomato salsa
french press coffee with maple syrup & cinnamon

i’ve been scared of trying to make hashbrowns on my waffle iron without any oil but my friend cynthia insisted it would work out if i cooked the potato long enough. she was right!

after shredding 3 potatoes on the cheese grater (be very careful these things are dangerous!) i blotted & squeezed them with paper towels to absorb all of the excess water. i let the waffle iron pre-heat. i put it on medium heat and placed 1/2 the potato on it – pressing down firmly. i let the hashbrowns cook for 10 minutes. i forgot to season them before hand – next time i’ll add salt, pepper & paprika before putting the potatoes on the waffle iron.

the trick is definitely waiting until the potatoes are cooked to open the iron!

since i’m not using ketchup i decided to make some salsa. i threw some colorful heirloom tomatoes, 1 jalapeño seeded, 1/2 green bell pepper, 3 cloves garlic, freshly squeezed lime, cilantro and salt into the vitamix and pulsed it until it was salsa-like. i realize now that i completely forgot onion and it was still so delicious!!! I added the onion to the leftovers though!

breakfast was SO yummy and i’m feeling sort of full. i’m always hungry so cleanses are always hard. i want to eat everything. argh!

lunch:
potato salad on mixed greens, tomatoes & cucumber . (Prepped the potato salad and mixed green salad yesterday!)

early dinner:

leftover fries, cheesy sauce & salsa

late dinner:
leftover broccoli & tiny potatoes with cheesy sauce! so far this has been my absolute favorite meal! so yummy. i’m a sucker for roasted broccoli!


stopped at whole foods for some more potatoes after my shoot tonight… excited to try more flavors!

 dessert:
1/2 baked purple potato with maple syrup drizzle – so yummy and filling!!!


day two wasn’t bad… i feel kind of weird… like i’m starving and full at the same time. can’t really explain it. basically i don’t know if i’m hungry or not. it’s kind of frustrating and i feel like i’m eating too much. we shall see. i’m going to stick with it at least 2 weeks but i’d love to go for a month!
