A Day of Eating on The Community Cleanse

Today is Day 3 of The Community Cleanse.  With the exception of feeling fairly lethargic yesterday, so far so good.  Below I have shared what I ate yesterday on Day 2 of the cleanse.  Due to time constraints, I needed to prepare quick, easy meals.  Happy cleansing!   

Breakfast
Everyday Breakfast Smoothie – see link for recipe

Lunch

 Egg and Veggie Wraps (Serves 2)

  • 3 eggs
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 yellow or red pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2-3 very large handfuls of baby spinach
  • ½ an avocado
  • 4-6 tablespoons of salsa
  • 4 stone ground soft corn tortillas
  1.  Stir fry garlic, pepper and zucchini in a little olive oil until desired tenderness.
  2. Break the 3 eggs into the frying pan and mix around.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of salsa.
  4. Once the eggs are almost cooked, add 2 large handfuls of spinach and mix.
  5. Take off heat so not to over cook the eggs.  The spinach will continue to wilt.
  6. Warm the wraps in a frying pan (no need to use oil).
  7. Divide the mixture and put onto the wraps.  Add sliced avocado and about 1 tbps salsa per wrap.
  8. Wrap it up, eat and enjoy.

Dinner

For dinner we had a great, big, delicious salad with brown rice crackers and hummus.

Giant Salad (serves 2)

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/2 yellow or red pepper
  • 1 golden or red beets
  • 1 tomato
  • mixed spring greens
  • pumpkin seeds
  • fresh turkey
  1. Put mixed spring greens in bowl.
  2. Put all the vegetables, except the tomato, through a food processor or chop them.  Put the chopped vegetables on top of the lettuce.
  3. Chop the tomato and place on top of the salad.
  4.  Cut up the turkey (you can warm it) and place on the salad.
  5. Toast pumpkin seeds in some olive oil and sea salt in a toaster oven or an oven.  Put the seeds on top of the salad.
  6. Dress the salad with cleanse friendly dressing.  We used “Annie’s Goddess Dressing”.
  7. Eat and enjoy.

Snack (Dessert)

  • Almonds
  • “Coconut Bliss Bar”

    I made a whole pot of roasted veggies/stew and have used them w/ eggs, on sammies, top whole wheat pasta, and eaten as soup. Glad it turned cold outside:)

    • That sounds delicious! I’m making a turkey soup with brown rice, aduki beans and veggies. Had a whole turkey left over from the other night – kind of went overboard and bought two free range turkeys. I would love your stew recipe.

    Ultimate Comfort Ratatouille
    (this is a absolute standard for me on this cleanse, and so good! I eat it as a side dish, on top of fish, with plain goat yogurt..)

    2 red bell peppers
    1 yellow bell pepper
    1 large yellow onion
    10 cloves garlic
    1 large egg plant
    2 cans stewed tomatoes w/juice(check ingredients that there is no added sugar)
    3 zuchinni (green is best, yellow works too)

    Dice all ingredients to bite size pieces
    Sautee onion and garlic, add peppers and egg plant, cook until soft. Add zuchini. Cook until soft. Pour in both cans of tomatoes, including juice and simmer for 2-3 hours.

    Enjoy!

    AND this gets even better the next day!

    (if you are in a rush, one hour is fine, but the longer it sits, the more delish! Feel free to play around by adding spinach, carrots, etc)

    I made kale chips last night. Take a bunch of Kale cut and clean and place in a bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil and seasonings of choice (I just used sea salt). Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Keep a eye on them as for the first time as oven temps might vary.

    For dinner I had a sweet potato with satayed chard and salsa.

    Tonight I am at my parents house. My mom is not taking me seriously so I had to stand over her shoulder to make sure she did not add anything non cleanse friendly to dinner. Good thing that most everything we are eating is from the garden! We are having stuffed red and yellow peppers with hamburger, rice, squash, onions, and garlic with a little olive oil. Green beans on the side. I am thinking not too bad. Although it is 9pm and we are just going to eat!
