Today is a Fruit-Veg Combo Day!
Day 3 started with a quick salad which I ate at ‘Panera Bread’. I had them make me a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, Avacado and some dry apple chips with just lemon juice as dressing.
Unfortunately, I had to deviate a little from the diet, as they also added a little pecans and a tsp of Gorgonzola cheese….but the end result was a light crunchy delicious salad.
Late afternoon, I had a cup of tomato soup and a large orange.
Dinner was a big plate-full of roasted Brussels sprouts and a large fruit salad of kiwi, pomegranate, papaya and oranges.
By end of day three, I feel a little fed up of vegetable and fruit salads.
I long for Day 4 which will let me enjoy Dairy…in the form of milk and yoghurt. 🙂

I started the day with a bowl of chatpati fruit chaat and Ayurvedic spice tea.
Lunch was guacamole n chips in their healthy avatar, where firm juicy tomatoes replace fried tortilla chips….one of my fav!
Along with a bowl of sweet pomegranate.
Dinner was a big bowl of Roasted Butternut Squash Soup.
This soup eats like a meal and is extremely filling!
For snacking I roasted on a batch of spicy fennel flavored pumpkin seeds…that served as a nice distraction from other food cravings!
Throughout the day. I continued to sip warm comforting Ayurvedic tea….which soothed my nerves and kept me focused on the detox. 🙂
Started Day 3 off with a big bowl of sweet juicy Papaya.
This was followed by an early lunch of watermelon pizza, which was such fun to make n eat! 🙂 Late afternoon hunger pangs were fixed by a bowl of hot tomato soup.
Evening meal was my Quick Detox Stir fry Vegetables…had one small bowlful before my swim workout and one after.
Dessert was a big bowl of sweet strawberries and blueberries!
This is the hardest day for me, as by the end of the third day… I get slightly fed up of eating only fruit and vegetables. However spending a little time & thought in creating interesting food, keeps me afloat! 🙂
From tomorrow, we bring dairy into the diet making the Punjabi in me go….Hurrrah!!
