    So, by 1 cup of coffee, dot hey mean 8 ounces? B/c I’d for sure try and fit about 20 ounces into the biggest flippin cup I could find to justify only have 1 cup. I’m interested to see some of the foods you’ll be eating. Although, I have a feeling they’re similar to lots I already eat, still, ideas are always helpful!

    Looks great Elizabeth! I have an acorn squash that’s been calling my name to do something with it, this looks like the ticket. Good luck with the cleanse. I’m off to check out the link. :)

    Is this diet really healthy? Hope it won’t lead to any imbalances.
    The salad some flavourful and hearty.

    All the best !

      I think because it’s only for a week and it’s not too much of a stretch (besides salt, sugar, alcohol and caffeine) it should be fine.

    Had to comment, cleanse diets are one of my Nutr profs pet peeves (long rants..), but I have another prof who doesn’t think they’re all that dangerous (though probably not beneficial). With no sodium and losing potassium through urine, make sure if you feel dizzy or like you are thinking “through a fog”, that can be dangerous if you have an underlying heart condition (because sodium and potassium are integral to nerve function), that’s 2 cents from a McGill prof haha! Good luck, salad looks great :)

      I was wondering about the lack of sodium….I know it is essential to our health. And it’s just plain delicious. Hmmm….now I want to have salt!

      I did one of these last year, and will likely not do another. The “foggy” feeling that you mentioned, nagged me and for an entire week I didn’t feel like I could function properly. I hadn’t considered the sodium issue- thanks for the insight!

    I’ll be interested to hear more about the cleanse and what you think of it after the fact. I’ve been thinking of something like that lately! And, the salad looks lovely… Love the colors!

    What a beautiful, fall dish! For me, it’s the dressing that gives this such life with its bright flavors.

    This is a beautiful salad. I’m not one to do a *cleanse diet* but still would be curious to see what exactly you are permitted to eat.

    As my husband tells me all the time “there is never enought salt”. When I get back home I am following you on this cleansing.
