I may have gotten a little ahead of myself by diving into a week-long devotion to tacos. A HOT cleanse is intense and I am now in awe of the FUEGO cleansers – @veganlazysmurf and @lonestarplate. Anything beyond a MILD really requires some advance conditioning and I was naive to think that my casual schmearing of refried black beans onto a corn tortilla was going to be enough to prepare me for the mental game that is taco cleansing.
It may now be obvious, but I am not going to make my HOT goal. I am just gonna have to take it a day at a time and celebrate the small wins.
Today… I managed a MILD taco cleanse:
10/21 Breakfast – Whole Wheat Tortilla, Refried Pinto Beans, Potatoes. Homemade. No picture.
11/21 Lunch – Flour Tortilla, Tempura Fried Avocado, Tomatoes, Arugula, Sherry Vinaigrette. Melizzos Tacos.
12/21 Early Dinner – Whole Wheat Flour Tortilla, Rice, Tempeh Taco Mix, Lettuce, Tomato, Salsa Casera. Wheatsville Co-Op.
Ordering a taco at Wheatsville nearly did me in. Don’t get me wrong. It was good, but something may very well not be right with a world where a tempeh-chili frito pie is the wrong choice. 😦
