Day 3- Prayer and Side Effects.

Some people think it’s weird that as part of the Maker’s Diet you are called to start and end your day with prayer.  I think it’s only right that when you are detoxing the body, you should uplift the spirit.  So my day started with a prayer, declaring that I am ‘beautifully and wonderfully made’, and asking the Lord to give me strength and heal my body.  If I didn’t pray these kinds of prayers, I would probably just thank the universe for letting me wake up one more day, and for the opportunity to heal my body and renew my spirit.  Flowers really renew my spirit- so I got me some for encouragement

I needed the extra help today as I started feeling the withdrawal symptoms  of very little sugar, and very little caffeine.  I also skipped the eggs this morning and was hungry all day— not doing that again!

And I have a confession to make— I’ve been drinking the Green Tea from Honest Tea.  It says it’s made from organic tea leaves, and only has a tad of honey.  But I think technically, I am not suppose to have it. Ah well. I have to have a fuller breakfast tomorrow. 

Day 3 Menu:

Breakfast-

Coconut milk and strawberry smoothie.

Snack-

A few raw almonds, and fresh strawberries.

Lunch-

Grilled Salmon Salad- with spinach, string beans, and cherry tomatoes, with vinegar,olive oil and pepper.  

Snack-

More almonds, and the Green Honest Tea

Dinner-

Modified Dominican Chicken Stew with a side of broccoli. 

The original recipe is here. 

I skipped the sugar and the olives, used sesame oil instead of olive oil, and used tomato sauce with no added sugar or salt.  I used very little salt and instead used more herbs like basil, and added a little more cilantro at the end.  I’ve made this recipe before and honestly, this modified, healthier, version tasted amazing!  Left overs for lunch tomorrow.
