the challenges of detox while nursing

today has been a super challenging day. I think I'm starting to "detox" and whenever I feel it starting or feel symptoms I freak out and eat cooked food because I don't want my babies getting toxic crap in their systems. I know moms lose weight all the time when they are nursing....but I think this is much more than losing weight. I think it is my body cleaning shop. I'm frustrated and disappointed. A part of me thinks now is not the time to attempt this, but I've always been of the philosophy if not now, when? Do it now and don't live your life another day w/out pursuing your dreams. But I'm EBF'ing twins. Is it selfish of me to want to attempt this now?
I'm soooooo tired today. And I'm soooooooo crabby. And I feel like my skin itches all over, right under the surface of the skin. And I'm breaking out. And my husband thinks I stink. Argghhhh.
I never used to think detox was a real thing. I always thought people just jumped on the detox bandwagon just because it was part of the raw food experience.
Oh yeah, food I ate today:
breakfast was banana, pear, raw granola w/ almond milk
snack: green smoothie w/ 1 bunch spinach, water, frozen blueberries, and 1 banana
lunch: guacamole, red peppers, a few saltine crackers
snack: corn chips
dinner: brown rice, a little bit of stir fry I made for my family
WHAT A TERRIBLE DAY! I always thought I wouldn't give in to temptations and today I did.
