With two full weeks behind you, and, we hope, any negative detox symptoms also relegated to the past, clean eating will start to feel less like a burden and more like a lifestyle. You should feel lighter (youâ€™ve likely dropped a few pounds) and be conscious of the impactsâ€”better digestion, more energyâ€”of a healthy diet.
Keep In Mind: Two foods often related to sensitivities reenter the mix this week: soy and eggs. â€śEggs are very commonly associated with gut-related digestive symptomsâ€”reflux, gas and bloating, diarrhea, and constipationâ€”so pay close attention,â€ť Blum advises. â€śThis is information-gathering time.â€ť
Add Back: Organic, non-GMO soy (tofu, edamame) and eggs
The time has come to cement your newfound healthy eating habits into a cooking regimen that will really last. Louisa Shafia, the author of Lucid Food, developed these easy, clever recipes (weâ€™re still marveling at her brilliant bake-ahead tofu slabs) to power you through this last week and inspire you to continue on a clean-eating plan. Supplement them with your favorite dishes from the past two weeks. Before the week starts, cook a pot of brown rice, bake those tofu slabs, and wash, stem, and tear greens and store them in an airtight container.
