A Pre-Baby Cleanse

Every January, so many of us decide to go on a self-improvement kick.

This year I’m no different. Between my photo challenge, journaling every night, and now this detox cleanse from Whole Living Magazine, I’m kicking my ass pretty hard. But this year I have a good reason.

Day 2 New Beginnings

You see, Papa Bear and I are working on that whole baby-making thing. Yep, we’ve totally decided on this. It’s such a strange feeling, after spending your whole adult life trying not to get pregnant, now deciding that yes, we’re totally going to cultivate a zygote.

It hardly feels real, but we’re so excited. We’ve been attempting this for two months now, and seeing as I’m popping Midol right now, I think now is the time for me to reset my body with a food cleanse and get ready to do this baby thing from the best starting point I can. And Papa Bear’s doing it too (the cleanse and the photo challenge)! He’s super jazzed about it.

Take a look at the menu, and eat some good things with us!

Whole Living Magazine has a truly delicious-looking cleanse with three weeks of recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, so its not like I’m eating nothing but cabbage soup and drinking nothing but spicy apple cider vinegar. It’s all really good food, and a whole lot of it, too. Way more volume than I’m used to eating, but that’s probably a good thing.

So, what’s on the menu? Click through on each of these items for the recipe, or you can find the entire plan linked above. Or better yet, just go buy the magazine. It’s a good one this month!
