I’ll cover days 7-10 tomorrow, focusing mainly on my bentos.  I’m doing pretty good with this.  Eating this way is starting to feel normal now.  I haven’t achieved the magical energy everyone talks about.  I have been sleeping excellently though, despite food related dreams.  It’s weird, but since I’ve started, I’ve been having dreams about the 21 DSD.  In one dream, I was in the grocery store and was stressing out because they were out of green apples and green-tipped bananas.  In another, I compulsively ate some m&m’s without thinking, and in another, I ate some fast food chicken nuggets.  Those last two dreams are really weird to me, because I haven’t eaten or craved food like that in months. The only cravings I’ve been having lately are for more fruit.  I still feel confident that I will have a lot of benefits from the 21DSD in the long run, even though I haven’t seen much of a difference yet.

    Haha, your food dreams are hilarious! I could just imagine you screaming at some poor grocery store clerk, “What do you mean there are no green apples???” Glad you reached the magical energy part of your detox. You’re doing awesome!

    Weirdly, I dream about eating handfuls of M&Ms too even though I’ve been a vegan for years…and I didn’t really like M&Ms when I used to eat them. I also have a recurring dream where all my teeth fall out (scary!).
