*Tomatoes, chick peas, apples, and coconut were the only ones in question here. I didn’t find out concretely until day 10 that these were on the NO List. So until day 10, I included them in my diet, especially Tomatoes, as they were the basis for so many dishes. They are okay to include, however, in later stages of the Cleanse.
