*Winner* and Spring Cleaning

Good morning my loves! When it came time to pick a winner for my giveaway I actually got a little sad. :-( Because I truly wanted everyone to win! I think I'm going to do lots more giveaways in the future. It's fun and it feels good :-)

The random winner for my "favorite things" giveaway is LINDSAY from Green Food, Green Thumb, High Heels. Congratulations Lindsay! Please email me your address so I can get your goodies in the mail to you :-)

I'm going to have to get creative with my posts for the next two weeks because not much baking is going to be going on. Woody and I are doing a little spring cleanse together. I'm so happy because this is the first time Woody has ever done a cleanse with me! I'm always trying to do short little detoxes and cleanses which are always difficult when Woody is drinking beer and eating cookies in front of me. I'm so glad that we're in it together to help support and encourage each other. We're not doing anything too crazy, we're just eliminating sugar, dairy, gluten, caffeine and alcohol. We're focusing on juices, smoothies, lots of salads, steamed veggies, rice, beans and just simple whole foods. I'm excited. Yesterday was the first day and I was already craving chocolate like a mad woman! I know it will get easier though.

Especially when I'm filling up on yummy things like smoothies in a bowl :-)

And yummy salads :-)

And tasty bowls of rice and veggies :-)

It doesn't look too different from what I normally eat, huh? Minus chocolate, pancakes, cookies, muffins etc. :-) I will definitely miss those things for the next two weeks but It's going to be really good for me.

Wish me luck!

Have you ever done a cleanse before? How did it go for you? I've done cleanses in the past but I usually never make it for as long as I intend to! This time will be different though ;-) Because I have Woody along for the journey. 

Have a beautiful day! Much love <3
