another diet attempt

This time it is the 21 day celery diet.

Drink celery smoothie 3-4 times a week. Take first glass at breakfast with nothing else. Drink the rest an hour before each meal. Smoothie recipe: juice of 1 lemon, 1 stick of celery, 5 leaves of fresh mint, 1 litre of water

Some ideas:

celery, chickpeas, raisins & diced green apple salad

cream of celery & carrots

cod with celery and apple

sliced celery with salmon

cucumber, celery, tomato, dried plum & chicken salad with salsa

celery & pumpkin quiche

hake soup with celery and onion

cream of zuchinni with celery and turkey chunks

chickpeas with leeks and celery

brown rice with celery, raisins, salmon and olives.

CELERY:

3-n-butylphthalide reduces lipoprotein (bad chilesterol)

natural anti-inflammatory

regulates blood pressure

good for liver lose weight easier

fights infection

protects from cancer

It is filling and low in calories

diuretic

optimizes digestion

 

Also eat carrots, fennel, parsley and parsnips

 

before pics 🙂 I got this skirt at Maj-R-Thrift yesterday. I thought it may be too small but it was a medium.  Can’t even close the waist, but we’ll see if this celery idea can do wonders! I really like it and would love to wear it this summer with sandals. Took pics in the messy room. Maybe in 21 days the room will look better too. 🙂

Now, I can nearly close the front 🙂 Haven’t been following the celery diet strictly, but I am eating lots of celery. Onward, maybe this will be successful in time.

Daniel Fast

I didn’t last on the Daniel Fast, but it’s always good even if only 2 days ! Trying to eat veggies first in the mornings ~ to get off to a good start.

I also have The Daniel Plan and other books to read on prayer.

kimchi and recipes

I got a daikon radish, so wanted to make Kimchi. However, it is not really necessary to have one, I found out. Here is easy vegan kimchi.

Today was 67 degrees ~ took a nice walk. Tomorrow a cold front moves in; after all it is December 🙂

I decided to start a Daniel Fast tonight ~ 21 days ~ it will be finished by Christmas ~ maybe I will look happier after doing this than in this picture 🙂 Mainly omit bread, dairy, sugar, processed foods, etc. It will be fun and good discipline. Wonder if I can go to 4 swimming classes this week. We will see.
