Detox Day Minus 2

Today I did my grocery shopping. I went to Costco for most stuff. I have a nice combination of foods ranging from easy prep to extended prep, single serving, family size (to be parred down), mostly organic, except the avocado. I spent right around $200 for everything which I think is pretty good considering this will be my food for at least 14 days. I may have to purchase a few more things along the way, but I do not foresee it being anything too substantial.

When you do your shopping, I suggest taking the Avoid and Include lists from pages 16 & 17 with you, and the sample meal plan. I have a grocery list below, but I also have things on hand that I was counting on incorporating.

Going back to this post after day 2, I realized that shopping four days before eating food on the plan may have been too early for things like kale and cabbage salad mix. It did not keep great.

Here’s a tip on berries though! They come in a container that allows a lot of air to circulate because of the gases used in the shipping trucks to help them ripen. When you get your berries home, transfer them to an airtight container. I prefer glass. And put them in the fridge unwashed. They will keep for a week or longer like this. For avocados, they ripen on the counter and keep in the fridge, peaches and pears should be kept room temperature. If you refrigerate, they will spoil out of the fridge. If you plan to eat them right from the fridge, you can keep them chillin’ in the crisper.
