The first morning of the cleanse

Yesterday, I followed a link from fatfree vegan that led me to a recipe on Knocked Up Vegan. I already subsribe to that website's feed, but what I didn't know was that Miriam and her husband's daily diet is something they call "vegan squared," which means that they eat vegan, no processed foods, and all organic. Eureka! That is the exact diet of the cleanse I'm on, so I'm calling it "Vegan Squared" from now on to avoid confusion with McDougall and Eat to Live, which each have restrictions that I'm not following.

This morning for breakfast, I made an oatmeal-hot cereal mixture and ate it with cinnamon, vanilla, and golden raisins.

For the mixture, what I did was combine:

2 cups oats
2 cups Bob's Red Mill 10 grain cereal
1 cup millet
2/3 cup flaxseed

in a big tupperware container and shook it up. Then I cook 1/2 a cup of this with 1.5 cups water until it's done. Awesome and very filling.

I meant to weigh myself this morning so that I can do a full report at the end of the cleanse of how much has changed, but I forgot, so I'll have to do that tomorrow.

By the way, all of the entries about my cleanse will be friends-only after this one, so if you're not a member of this community and you'd like to follow along, please join up.
