So yeah. Our 2 day juice detox lasted 1.5 days. And it sucked. I mean, it really sucked hard. Ken wasn't nearly as whiny as I was during the whole process, but I could tell he was feelin' the pain just the same.
I broke the fast in the afternoon on day two at a point when I couldn't focus on an email at work. Walking up and down the stairs was impossible, too. I was weak, shaky, and I kept having random crying fits.
...but I do tend to be a bit dramatic when it comes to food.
Anyway, we have been back to our regular eating schedule for the past week, with nothing really exciting to report. Ken is coming down with a cold, and he was craving a bowl of something warm. I obliged my sicky husband by making a simple chili. But that's not exciting.
What is exciting, and maybe a little bit sad, is that I found a biscuit recipe that I may like better than my prized Paula Deen biscuit recipe. Crazy, I know! I made a modified version of the Buttermilk Biscuit recipe from Yellow Rose Recipes. I made these rather than my regular go-to recipe because I didn't feel like fooling with the shortening. And I'm so glad I did! They are spectacular. I think that my slight modification made these already probably awesome biscuits extra super delicious.
Rather than using 3/4 cup of soy milk (because I was low on soy milk...) I substituted 3/4 cup of unsweetened soy yogurt (Wildwood) and whisked in just a bit of water to make it runny. I skipped the lemon juice part, since the yogurt already has a tang to it. Whoo boy! The biscuits were moist, fluffy, and light as air.
Here's our table tonight of entirely too much food. Chili, salad, biscuits, and prepackaged "Health is Wealth" buffalo wings.
Ugh. I'm so full.
In other news, Miles knocked this cupcake container off the counter. What is it with Mile and messing up pretty cake? Bad kitty!
