Breakfast

  • Smoothie w/ 1 scoop of your detox powder
  • Piece of fruit
Lunch
  • Mexican Rice and Beans (recipe below)
Snacks
  • handful of raw nuts
  • hummus and veggies
  • fruit
Dinner
  • Grilled portobello burgers with sweet potato fries (recipe below)
Dessert
  • Smoothie with ice, almond milk, fruit, and 1 scoop of powder

Mexican Rice & Beans
  • Use leftover rice from stir fry on day 1 if any, otherwise make white rice
  • Drain a can of black beans and combine in a bowl with chopped onion, chopped red pepper, 1 jalapeno chopped (remove seeds if you don't like spicy), 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Serve warm bean mixture over rice, and sprinkle with chopped avacado, cilantro, and tabasco (optional)

Portobella Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

  • Heat your grill to "medium heat"
  • Peel sweet potato and chop into the shape of fries
  • put potatoes in a bowl and coat lightly with safflower oil (olive oil is fine), dried rosemary, and a sprinkle of sea salt
  • Also lightly coat your mushrooms in balsamic vinegar then drizzle with safflower or olive oil
  • For extra flavor, cut a red bell pepper into large pieces to put on the grill as well
  • Put everything on the grill for 10-15min or until fries are crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside
  • Serve portobella on 2 slices of toasted gluten free bread with dijon mustard, the red pepper, and lettuce with "fries" on the side!
