Hi beautiful people! This is going to be just a short post as a follow-up to the post about my latest Limpia which I finished a bit more than a month ago. So, here we go!
The first thing I noticed was that my energy levels were much improved. I felt that already after 2 weeks into the LimpiaI could wake up much more easily and ready to go on with my day. Also, I have been doing longer morning yoga sessions (always Yoga with Kassandra), which helped me much with getting on with my day.
What I Ate
For breakfast, I always had a bowl of porridge made with water and nut butter, adding either fresh (i.e. apples, pears, etc.) or dried fruits. Sometimes I would have fresh fruit as a snack before lunch. So this was easy. Porridge has many advantages from being extra filling to having important nutritional value. Should you not be able to eat oats, you could make a porridge with rice: just cook the rice until is nice and soft.
There are probably millions of porridge recipes around, but just to give you an idea this one is very close to what I do: PB&J Porridge by Domestic Gothess.
For lunch, I would have rice, quinoa or millet with sauteed veggies and legumes.
Dinner was the time I have used to diversify the menu. I made, stir fry, fritters, warm salads, etc. Most definitely you won’t starve! And you actually don’t have to think too hard about what
Baked Tofu Bites by It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken
Vegan Crispy Lentil Fritters by The Viet Vegan
Spinach and Artichoke Dip by This Healthy Kitchen
I also made dessert and sweets, like the No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bars by Chocolate Covered Katie
or these Paleo Chocolate Pudding by The Bojon Gourmet
Conclusion on the Limpia
Limpia is a great way to detox your body: even if you should not feel the change in your level of energy, you will be doing something good for your body by feeding it fruit, veggies and whole foods. A suggestion, in case you feel uninspired, if you look for Vegan Paleo recipes without flours could give you good ideas while following the Limpia.
And while it should be done for 50 days, I’ve done it for 28 days but you could do it for 14 or 7 days. As the friend who told me about the Limpia: “50, 28 or fewer days…short Limpia is always better than no Limpia”.
With this, I leave you and if you’re going to do it, please let me know how it goes!
One thought on “After My Limpia Days”
So many options for porridge! Quinoa is one of my favorites. You can also do millet, bulgur, barley, etc. I’ve never tried the kind of eating you describe here, but it sounds interesting.
