Day 2 - Are You Obsessed With Food?

Good Morning, Cleansers!

Congratulations on making it through the toughest day of all – Day 1! You took the leap and did something you never thought you’d be able to do! And here’s to creating another successful day today!

This article at Prevention is a good reality check for all of us. We all look at food in different ways at different times so it's good to be aware of how we're relating to it, particularly at this moment. This is our chance to learn mindful eating – giving true consideration to our food choices and opting for healthy choices each time we take a bite.

Many of us are looking to shed a few pounds over the next few weeks, but this cleanse isn’t just about losing weight - it's about restoring balance in our lives. Sometimes it's easy to forget that, particularly if we’re trying to whittle away some stubborn poundage.

During this cleanse we can bring balance to our relationships with food. Food is not the enemy. But it shouldn't be our best friend either. Take a look at this piece and then think about the best way to get the absolute most out of this cleanse.

Have a great Day 2!


  1. Hi Ivy
    I am behind a bit. One of my questions is that you suggested "drying" the tofu before slicing it into "steaks" and baking it. How do you dry it? I tried draining, patting it dry then slicing and baking it. Is that correct?

  2. Hi, Lois -

    What you did sounds fine but I add a step. After patting the tofu dry, I wrap it in a kitchen towel and place something heavy on top of it to press additional fluid out. You can use paper towel too. I let it sit for 20 minutes to half an hour. Then it's ready to go. Hope that helps!
