Day 5 and highly sick of salmon.


So here we are. It's Friday. Can I get an amen?
Day 5 of this cleanse.
Do I feel better? Sure.
Do I feel lighter? A bit.
Am I looking forward to two more days of salmon for lunch and salmon for dinner? Eff no.
I wish I was more adventurous to try other fish. But you know me, I often play the safe side when it comes to food. I'm really trying to work on it. And when I say 'work on it,' I mean I recently started eating Canadian bacon on my breakfast sandwiches for the first time ever in my life.
Yeah. Ponder that for a minute.

Anyway, wish us luck. We've been dreaming of the things we can eat come Monday.
Something like pizza for breakfast, burritos for lunch, and cheeseburgers for dinner.
We'll be feeling really great after that, I'm sure.

...

Hope everyone has a really great weekend!
See ya on the flip side.

xoxo

  1. You should try tilapia! It is WAY less fish-y than salmon. I really like it. It is really light and i think the same price!


    Just try it! :)

  4. Oh no!! Don't ruin it on Monday. You both have worked so hard. Just eat one of those items not all!!!

  5. It's funny because salmon is the only fish I don't like because I think it's too fishy! If you're staying away from other fish because you don't like too strong a flavor, you may be in for a treat!

  6. Good work on keeping up with the cleanse! That's awesome. And I know, I used to be super afraid of fish, pretty much all kinds. But I've gotten more adventurous lately and, maybe it's just my taste buds, but they kind of all taste the same to me? We had trout last night and it was pretty good!

  7. i agree will all the other comments about tilapia! as far as fish goes, i will only cook tilapia (well, that or shrimp)...i can't seem to cook salmon well, so i only get it at restaurants. tilapia basically tastes like whatever you put on it, not too much flavor...but it's light and a good alternative!

  8. way to go with keeping up withe the cleanse. Talapia is really good (and super cheap) so that's a good recommendation...come Monday you won't even remember what a fish is ;)

  10. SO ever since your cleanse post my husband and I have talking about eating way healthier. Today we went healthy grocery shopping and got half the amount of stuff we usually for twice as much as we usually pay. Why is eating shitty so cheap? I had a salad with grilled chicken and green tea for dinner. Boom. Health.

  14. SALLMAN (some people actually say salmon like that!!)

    do you have to eat it plain!? can you marinade it? put it in salad? do SOMETHING to make it a lil zing zing different!? but for reals you are INSPIRING MEEEEE WOMAN!! to want to do a cleanse like this! I bet you feel lovely!

    pizza for breakfast monday probably sounds like the best thing ever

    have a fab weekend girly!

  19. I do love Salmon, but I don't think I'd be able to eat it five days in a row!

  20. Cod is a pretty benign fish too. I actually think salmon's too fishy. I like to make salmon cakes with lots of mayo and lemon juice. Good luck! Wait, today's Monday!
