Chad and I have almost survived our first day of Dr. Alejandro Junger’s 21-day Clean Cleanse.
Breakfast was an impressively satisfying and delicious smoothie. It was called “Favorite Green Shake” (3 c spinach, 1 c blueberries, 1 T flax oil, 1T maca powder, 1 T spirulina, 1 c almond milk, 2 dates) and it comes from Jenny Nelson’s clean recipes.
Lunch was roasted chicken, brown rice, and roasted beets.
For dinner I made a cream-less creamy turnip soup. (Sauteed one onion, added homemade chicken stock and roasted turnips, simmered, pureed.)
For snacks, we ate carrots sticks, raw cauliflower, roasted turnip, and roasted chicken.
There is more information at goop.com. Search “clean,” click on the first article it pulls up. There will be a description of a 21-day clean cleanse (what we are doing), a 21-day clean diet, and a 3-day mini-cleanse. In the section for the clean diet, there are two downloadable pdf files that are all clean recipes. This link should take you there.
I have high hopes for this cleanse. I fully expect it to cure all my inflammation ills on the right side of my body and for Chad’s allergies to disappear.
So far, this cleanse looks like it’s going to be highly do-able.
I would say more, but I have a art writing deadline tonight and I’ll get in trouble (with the husband) if I miss it.
