We’re all different and I encourage everyone to try a cleanse and then to experiment with which foods are working best for you at this present time. Not everyone runs on the same fuel. Some people need more protein or fat than others. Some need more complex carbohydrate. Through a process called Metabolic Typing
, you can begin to craft a customized nutrition plan. This is a process that I am more than happy to work with you on
So here goes!
Saturday, May 15th
Warm water with lemon juice. Yerba mate tea with Tulsi
Smoothie with pesticide free, whey protein
, spirulina powder, frozen organic blueberries, hemp seeds, coconut milk, goat yogurt and a little water. Yummy!
I got some Fava Beans in my Farm Fresh to You
box. So I made a salad with fava beans, organic carrots, shredded organic lettuce and a ginger citrus vinaigrette. See the recipes down below! To round out the meal I ate some home-made chicken liver pate onGrindstone Bakery
, high flax, gluten free bread and some steamed asparagus with melted butter on top. Email me (email@example.com) if you’d like the recipe for chicken liver pate! I used to hate organ meat until I discovered this recipe. Organic chicken liver is an excellent source of B-vitamins and zinc.
Fava Bean & Carrot Salad
Fava Beans, about 1 cup
Carrots, about 1 cup shredded
Lettuce, about 1 cup shredded
Shell the fava beans, and steam for about 3-5 minutes or until the outer “pod” starts to shrivel a little. Rinse the beans in cool water and then pop them out from the shriveled outer shell. Grate your carrots and then chop your lettuce. Mix it all up in a big bowl.
Season with a vinaigrette such as the one below.
Ginger Citrus Vinaigrette
Chunk of fresh ginger, peeled
Juice from half of a lemon
1-2 Tbsp of extra virgin, cold pressed organic olive oil
2-3 tsp of local raw honey
Use a microplane
to grate the peeled ginger. Use as much as you’d like! I usually do a 1 inch square chunk. Use about twice as much olive oil as you’ve got lemon juice. Mix in honey to taste. Local raw honey will help you if you suffer from seasonal allergies.
Add you dash of Pink Salt to taste.
Organic apple with cinnamon. Handful of raw almonds. GT’s Kombucha
My plan for tonight is to have an artichoke, some sweet potato, more asparagus, and a ground lamb patty.
Dessert is fresh organic peaches and strawberries.
See you all again tomorrow!
Yours in Health,
