Pepperoni Pizza Meatloaf Bites

Pepperoni Pizza Meatloaf Bites

Brett and I are starting a cleanse today.  It’s the 3-Day Sambazon Purifying Cleanse.   We don’t just drink juices for three days, we get to eat good food still! Lots of veggies and fruit, quinoa, and veggie burgers.  No animal products.  No sugar.  No caffeine.   Just looking at this cheesy little meatloaf is killing me.  And YES! No caffeine = no diet coke! Wah wah.

The last two days have been prep days where we’ve basically followed the same dietary rules except we haven’t been drinking the juices.  Those start today. So  I’ve already been two days without caffeine and sugar.  This is big for me you guys.  I saw the Sambazon cleanse at Costco and just decided I wanted to try it, kind of on a whim.  So I’m making Brett do it with me.  Plus, I spent last weekend at the Duncan Hines test kitchen where I practically ate my weight in sugar.  With food season (ahem, sugar season) upon us I could use this to hopefully gain control of my cravings! The whole point is to feel “pure.”
