Day 12 of the Master Cleanse: Soup's On!

Today, in addition to Orange Juice, I could have vegetable soup later in the day. I actually didn't drink much OJ—only a couple of glasses and a bottle while I was out. I actually cheated and made the vegetable soup this morning, having some of the broth just before 11am. Did notice one less pound on the scale. The only thing that didn't happen today was any waste elimination. Isuppose that will happen more easily on it's own in short order.

I actually chose this Hearty Lentil Soup recipe I got off of UltraWellness. It wasn't exactly what the Master Cleanse folks had in mind, but it was still pretty good. The only thing I changed in the recipe was that I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, to honor the "no meat" part of coming off of the Master Cleanse. I also made a bit more broth than I probably would have done normally, mostly just for broth consumption. I plan on making the soup later with the chicken broth to see if it's any better that way.

I ate the soup, veggies, lentils, and all. Not a ton of it, mind you, as I did not want to overload the body with solid food, being it's seen nothing but liquid for a week and a half. It tasted good. My system does not appear to have reacted badly to it, either.

I made so much that I've got a whole Tupperware container of the soup in my freezer for later. Good thing as I have to eat it tomorrow, too. At least for lunch. Dinner, I can have whatever fruit or veggie stuff I want. As long as I avoid meat, fish, eggs, bread, tea, coffee, or milk. Shouldn't be too hard since despite feeding my kids most of these things, I haven't been consuming them. Well except for tea.

After tomorrow, I can eat whatever I want again. It will be interesting to see if any of my tastes have changed since this experience.
