Ok, so Trisha has forced me into doing this “Clean” thing starting on Monday for a month. I guess it’s essentially a program where you eliminate the junk from your diet (like Twix, burgers and fries, and whoopie pies) and then you start ‘cleansing’ your body with vegetable shakes, vitamins, etc.
Here’s a picture of the book — a few of my friends have literally changed their lives by jumpstarting a healthier point of view. (NYT best-seller “Clean” by Alejandro Junger, M.D.) And I did a cleanse with my best friend Shelley years ago, and it really did make me start thinking differently about what I put in my mouth, and how I feed my kids.
But I cannot tell you how NOT into this I am at the moment. I mean, I’ve got real momentum right now with Chardonnay, potato skins, slow cooked short ribs and homemade fudge. And I do know that I really really should embrace this whole deal. I’ve made a pact, and I’m going to follow through. UGH.
I’m going to read this book today and head to Whole Foods to go get — oh I don’t know, probably quinoa (tastes like that white paste we used to use in elementary school), barley and some other stuff that sounds about as good as nails screeching on a chalk board.
