Cleansing (sad face)

Day one of a new cleanse and I want to stop already. Having tried an amazing one first, completely tainted my expectations of this new and different one. Should’ve listened to my friend when he told me that the first one I tried was way better. Two more days of suffering only because I’m not a quitter.

My dramatic self is going to have to do some adjusting, but it seems so late in the game to find out now that wheat will have to be absent (for now) from his life. End rant.

2. Does it really taste like butter?

Wait, I have a 3rd question, so it’s “absolutely fresh because it’s still alive”? Am I the only person to think that this is just a smidge odd?!

Freeze-Dried Deliciousness

Even after I opened it to sample the deflated strawberries and lifeless blueberries, my mouth continued to salivate. The small amount of fruit contained in the package was barely a handful, yet somewhat satisfying as made sure to eat them slowly as to savor the compacted flavor of these dried bits of berries.


Today I felt like an astronaut, in my mind
