I am on the 3rd day of the Elimination & Detox Diet from Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen, and I am loving how good I feel! For once I'm actually full, not needing to snack through the morning. I feel totally balanced, no crazy sugar or caffeine cravings - I'm loving this!
Last night for dinner, I made a recipe I've been itching to try from 18 Hour Kitchen - Sweet Potato & Pea Quinoa - and it was awesome! I had to leave out the almonds, and I used water instead of broth, but other than that I made it as written. So good!!! And the perfect lunch at my desk :)
Now I won't lie, the green smoothie fast was not the most fun thing I've done, but since I really enjoy green smoothies it wasn't too bad. I was definitely drinking a lot of tea to stay warm though! Here's my favorite new recipe:
Cran-Apple Green Smoothie
1/2 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
2 cups green cabbage
1 inch chunk of ginger
1 Tbsp chia seeds
handful of spinach/salad greens
1 cup water
dash of cinnamon
Blend everything together (I used my Blendtec) and you are good to go.
I used radicchio on hand for salad greens, so this turned out nice and pink - yummy! Hope you enjoy too :)
