I am almost done my first day of the detox and am happy to say I did not cheat-woo! I started the morning with a cup of hot/warm water and some lemon. Dr Joshi recommends doing this every morning- check out this link to find out the benefits: http://tasty-yummies.com/2013/03/18/10-benefits-to-drinking-warm-lemon-water-every-morning/
And while I was sipping that I prepared my breakfast– Mini Frittatas! I used this recipe: http://www.canadianliving.com/food/mini_spinach_and_feta_frittatas.php but cut it in half, omitted the mushrooms (not allowed), and substituted the milk for soy milk. And here is the end result
They are very tasty, perfectly sized and under 100 calories each!
Because I slept in and had a late breakfast, I didn’t have a mid-morning snack, which means the next thing I ate was lunch.
Lunch was a mixed greens salad with shaved carrots and beets, topped with crumbled goat cheese, sunflower seeds (“borrowed” from my roommate), and two falafel patties, with a bit of olive oil and lemon juice as a dressing.
Around 4pm I got a bit peckish so had a rice cake with some honey on it. Rice cakes are gluten-free, and the honey is good for satisfying a sweet tooth.
For Dinner I made a recipe from one of my favourite food blogs- Smitten Kitchen http://smittenkitchen.com/
The recipe is Asparagus, Goat Cheese, and Lemon Pasta and can be found here: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2009/05/asparagus-goat-cheese-and-lemon-pasta/
I used Brown Rice pasta instead of the regular stuff, and honestly found no difference! I didn’t have any fresh tarragon so just used some dried herbs from my spice rack.
I thought it was delicious and can’t wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
So that is it for day 1. 20 more to go!
