Day 4 was rife with discoveries. For one thing, I actually like tofu. And stir fried thinly sliced mushrooms aren't half bad either. I fell asleep the night before way earlier than usual (In heat such as this, what is there to do but to sleep), and as such woke up before 6AM and had plenty of time to make the tofu scramble for breakfast. It doesn't take much time at all if you chop up all your ingredients the night before.
My experience with tofu thus far was limited to a shitty salad bar experience as an adolescent which feature cubed uncooked tofu as an option and I thought it was feta cheese. BLECH. But it really does take the flavor of whatever you cook with it so I found a few more tofu recipes to try out in the coming weeks and I am very much looking forward to them.
My fourth non-caffeinated day was the easiest yet. I did not have the apres-lunch super-tiredness that I had experienced the other days and in fact felt like I had more energy than usual!
The Vegetable Polenta Pie, I have to admit with some chagrin, was just okay. I had never had polenta before and found it to be kind of soggy. And the vegan cheese I used, as I mentioned on Twitter, was an abomination!!! Not at all cheese tasting at all and instead of melting it solidified into a plastic-like material. The actual pie tasted good but had a few weird textures going on throughout. I still ate it. And I brought the leftovers for lunch because with the effort that went into it I am not wasting it. But I probably wouldn't make it again. Not without a Polenta tutorial and maybe when I am done with the cleanse some goat cheese on top.
MMMMMMM Goat cheese. A tear just came to my eye.
1) Gluten Free Pretzels don't taste like pretzels but are still Delicious (especially Sesame flavored ones)
2)Yogi "Detox" tea is delicious and naturally sweet. Definitely satisfies a sweet tooth and if you drink it cold it's refreshing too!
