What I Ate Wednesday~Detox Week
Time for another What I Ate Wednesday! On Monday, hubby and I started a detox diet which is basically just clean, healthy eating for 4 weeks. Week 1 focuses on fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. Week 2 you add in beans and lentils and organic soy. Week 3 you add in eggs and gluten free grains. We decided to do this to get back to our healthy eating. I have been eating way too much sugar lately!
I am still nursing Little Man so I am eating some grains and beans during week 1 as well. I have been feeling pretty good; had some major sugar cravings the last couple days but good otherwise. Hubby had a killer headache on Monday from the lack of coffee. Yesterday hubby started having some intestinal issues though including nausea and still is not feeling well this morning so I am thinking that he caught a stomach bug and that is not from the diet. I hope the rest of the family can avoid it!
So, this edition of WIAW is a very clean eating day!
Breakfast was oatmeal with banana, peanut butter, flaxseed and almonds.
A smoothie with pomegranate juice and frozen berries for a snack.
Lunch was a kale slaw which was delicious! I am including the recipe for this at the end of this post.
For a snack I had some almonds and cashews that I didn’t take a picture of as well as a smoothie with almond milk, peanut butter, banana, and flax.
Dinner was steamed broccoli with roasted butternut squash with shredded cabbage and a tahini dressing. Very good!
The dressing was 1/4 cup tahini, juice of half a lemon, 1 T olive oil, a splash of apple cider vinegar, pepper, cumin, and a pinch of cayenne. Yummy!
For dessert I made a fruit pie. This pie was awesome and has no added sugar!
In a food processor pulse together 1 cup dates with 1/3 cup each of cashews, walnuts, and almonds. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Press this into the bottom of a pie dish for the crust. Top with sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, pureed strawberries, mixed berries, and oranges. It really was delicious! I will definitely be making this again and taking proper photos so I can do an actual post on it!
