Shopping for the Cinch Diet 5 Day Fast Forward Cleanse

Interesting and not cheap are what comes to mind when I think of the gathering of my supplies to begin the 5 day fast forward.  Where are the coupons for berries, spinach, nuts and organic nonfat yogurt?  Ha.

Actually, I buy yogurt for the kids anyways, but the organic yogurt in our stores only had the lowfat plain, full fat plain and flavored.  Not what I needed.  I went to several stores, including one of the local health food stores since it was open and nearby while I was waiting to pick Dev up (it's smaller than my bedroom and more than half is devoted to supplements.  I was hoping to find the coconut milk based yogurt since I thought with my stomach issues I might have a better time digesting it - if it is in fact because of the type of dairy and not the cultures that make me feel icky.  No go, she hadn't even heard of it, but she did have other So Delicious products in stock so could order it for me.  When I inquired about the price and found out it was $2.69 for a 6 oz cup I knew I had to at least try my other options.  (Had called the other health food store after checking all the markets and they do not carry it either- just the "ice cream" options.  I found that amusing for health food stores, but then I think about where I live.)

Went on a mission and decided to hit Kroger and Wal Mart (The Harp's store, our other option, is much more limited in selections.)

It's all laid out in a handy shopping list in the book, but in a nutshell the plan calls for (organic when possible)

(2) 32 oz or (10) 6 oz containers of organic nonfat yogurt
     I could not find the nonfat in organic and did not have the time or inclination to drive to Little Rock to check out Whole Paycheck, which I love, because we were under severe tornado and flash flood watch.

(10) Whole large eggs or equivalent eggwhites

(20) cups raspberries, fresh or frozen 
     I got several cartons fresh and a couple bags frozen no sugar added because of the cost of the fresh- $3.99 per carton and my girls love them too and will want to share lolol.  I'll use the fresh on the salad and make the smoothies and parfaits with frozen because I simply can't afford $80 on just berries for 5 days.  I also got a bunch of blueberries, strawberries and blackberries because they were much more reasonably priced and the girls love them-  they will sit and taunt me along with the other fresh produce I bought the day before I committed to this-  both drawers in fridge and half of bottom shelf along with several bowls that we can leave out.  Peaches are sooooo good right now, but I digress.

(30) Tbsp slivered or sliced almonds and All Natural Almond Butter 
     I had a bunch of the tiny 4 oz packs in the freezer that I picked up for 10 cents each after the holiday baking season, but still bought a bag of sliced to make sure there were plenty.  We already use a lot of nuts in our salads and for snacking though I must admit my cashews are usually salted- wonder how that will go.  The almond butter *brace yourself* I found on SALE for 9 something a tiny jar.  And I bought two (one dry roasted, one raw as they both have almonds as the only ingredient and it was on sale and if I am doing this, I'm doing it as right as I can- this way I can have variety if it gets too boring (roasting really brings out flavors) and I have the plain if the roasted won't work - when these are out I believe I will buy more nuts and make my own, the girls love the nut butters and esp sunflower butter, so I do try to stock up when I find a deal, but if we're using it regularly it would probably be a lot more economical.

(15) cups fresh baby spinach - we use this all the time so got the big clamshell we usually do and several bags (for easier storage in case I don't make it to the store for whatever reason)

There are other (optional) things you can purchase for the 5 day fast forward, I got clementines (cutie oranges) and a new brand of balsamic vinegar (I use vinegar regularly, many kinds, but mix them and if I was going to be eating it without the other dressing components besides spices I wanted the best I could find/afford) as well as fresh mint, green tea (we had EVERYTHING but green lol) and a couple other things- all herbs and spices, citrus and vinegar are supposed to be used in this stage of the diet.

Not perfect as it's not all organic, and not all fresh (she says frozen on the berries and spinach are fine, I just prefer fresh with the berries and frozen spinach is nasty, gross, slimy, vile and tastes nothing like the baby spinach I buy.  LOLOL  I tried it last week in one of the soups and wasted a whole big pot of ingredients trying to save $- and yes, I got the better grade).

Ready to do this with me?  I'm cautiously hopeful, truly even if all it does is make me feel better I'll be happy.  (My goal was 10 lbs, 15 if I was uber lucky before Cancun and I lost 9 so while I want to lose a bit more, I'm not displeased.)

Let me know what and how you are doing, and if you are blogging about your journey to better health, weight loss or both and I'll be sure to cheer you on when I can.  I know support is an important part of success, so if you want a buddy through this just drop a note. :)

    I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's equally
    educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough people are speaking
    intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for
    something concerning this.
