Day #12: TRU 21-day detox/weight loss program

All is going well on the purification program - and I've realized why I skipped blogging for the second time in 12 days.

It comes down to habits - and mine are changing.

It used to be easy to hop online at night, and skip from watching Hulu to blogging and back again.

But now I'm not watching Hulu at night.  I'm sleeping - a lot earlier than I used to - and tonight I was cooking, to make up for Sunday.

I made a butternut squash soup (which - OOPS - I need to go take off the stove!) and a salad that I discovered last year, and that I love:

Chicken Tarragon Salad

8 oz. diced chicken OR 2 cups garbanzo beans
1 pear, diced
5 large radishes, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
3 tablespoons fresh tarragon OR 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1 tablespoon walnut oil
3 cups watercress, rinsed

Mix ingredients together and serve!
