Via Twitter, Jeri was able to keep in touch with Hilary, KD (from Your Daily Vegan) and met some new people too (you can check out KD's detox blog here). Very cool because we got recipe and meal suggestions. We're even planning to fast/detox once a week each month in the future just to give our bodies time to rest.
Anyway, the following is what we were encouraged to abstain from: meat, dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, peanuts, sugar (including “natural” sugars like molasses, maple and dried fruit) and all processed foods. Well, the 14th day has just passed and we *gasp* survived! Just kidding it was a lot of fun. Here are some of the dishes we prepared for the festivities…
Most of these were thrown together with what we already had or leftovers redone. It wasn't hard at all.
