my student, carole, and i are doing the doctor oz 21-day cleanse! there’s so much you can still eat, and so far, half a day in, i’m loving it!
i thought i would post all my meals, and the recipes, mainly so i remember what i’ve done.
breakfast: i had a smoothie with protein powder, kiwi, green apple, mango, coconut water, and some spinach leaves. i think that’s it. i drank 3/4 of it, and saved the rest for a snack this afternoon, if i need it.
chamomile tea instead of coffee. no coffee or alcohol on this 21-day ride. sigh. but it’s definitely time to do this. i have no peace and poor digestion. so there.
salmon with miso paste, fresh ginger and garlic, and a dash of bragg’s amino acids (which is just a substitute for soy sauce). cooked in a skillet with coconut oil.
black rice with garlic, basil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, one tomato chopped, one squash chopped, and some salt and pepper.
time for a nap, which is probably something i will need every day that i don’t have my coffee. 🙂
and then, the day got much worse. caffeine withdrawal is REAL.
but, i managed to make dinner:
chicken taco salad with black beans, avocado, roasted veggies, homemade salsa and homemade tortilla chips!!!
the recipe called for brown rice tortillas and i couldn’t find those anywhere. so i’ll be out looking for those this week. instead, i used multigrain tortillas, which is not at all what i was supposed to use. but it’s the first day, and i wanted to try these home baked chips.
if you haven’t tried these, you GOTTA! they are so amazing! cut up tortillas into triangles and throw them on a pam’d cookie sheet. brush with olive oil and a little bit of kosher salt and bake in the oven at 400 for 5-8 minutes.
the texture is amazing!
i liked my salsa this time as well. i added a red pepper, which added a nice sweetness without using sugar or agave. here’s that recipe:
1 can chopped tomatoes, drained
1 clove garlic
a dash of olive oil
squeeze of one lime
half a red pepper
S&P, and cumin
blend and serve. i was even too lazy to get my food processor out, and just used my blender. it worked just fine.
day one done!
