Dandy Blend Protein Latte
I stopped drinking coffee for this cleanse I’m on, and now that it’s almost over I am looking for some coffee alternatives to keep me on track. Dandy Blend is pretty good. I think I like it!
• 1/2 cup almond milk (use any milk or alternative)
• 1 tbsp protein powder (optional)
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
• 1 rounded tsp Dandy Blend (or more)
• 1 cup hot water
Stevia, agave or any other sweetener to taste
Throw it all in you blender and blend on high until frothy.
Rice noodles with garlic, fresh basil, tomato and italian parsley
Sauté in 4-5 tbsp of coconut oil on med-low:
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 small onion
- fresh basil
Make sure you do this step low and slow. No browning of the garlic or onions you want them fragrant and translucent. Don’t be afraid to add more oil. The oil needs to coat the noodles.
During this time I bring water to a boil to cook the rice noodles. I used the whole pack so I’ll have some lunch tomorrow.
Once you onions and garlic look good and your kitchen smells amazing throw in:
- big handful of chopped italian (flat leaf) parsley
- 3 or 4 chopped tomatoes (deseeded)
Give the mixture a stir here and there. Keep your element on low.
Once the noodles are cooked, throw them in the pan with all the goodies and toss.
Season with pink salt (I use quite a lot) and pepper.
Simple. And hits the spot when you’re craving carbs after a 10k run!
Sautéd some kale in garlic and oil, added beans and made a hash. Steamed cauliflower and broccoli and seasoned with olive oil and pink salt and then made a green salad with a simple vinegarette.
Dinner for Cleanse day 12. I can hardly wait for Day 14 when I get to add back white rice!
Baked wild salmon (sprinkle with salt and garlic powder then bake, serve cold) with shredded cabbage, green onion and cilantro. Season with freshly squeezed lemon juice and a bit of pink salt.
Cleanse Day 12!
I can’t eat this right now because of the “cleanse”.
But this quick, delicious chicken dinner is worth sharing!
Oatmeal with pecans, raisins, blueberries and macadamia nut milk + a rice protein smoothie. My breakfast, everyday this month. #cleanse
Jazz up your Veg
I’m on this cleanse and I’ve been getting home late and really unwilling to cook anything elaborate.
I came up with this “stir fry” because I have cut out soy and all its products out of my life this month…which mean no miso and no soy sauce.
So. I stir fried some vegetables (broccolini, fennel, green onion, cabbage) in a bit of coconut oil.
Just as the broccolini was starting to get tender, I added this sauce. Tossed a few times, warmed it through being careful that the veggies stay crispy. Then threw it on a plate with some fresh cilantro. You could also serve it on a bed of rice or quinoa.
In a blender, combine until smooth
- thumb of ginger (more if you like)
- 2 spoonfuls of tahini
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tsp or so garlic powder
- 2 tsp Himalayan pink salt (more or less to taste)
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- toasted sesame oil (optional, but use the good organic stuff)
- water, start with 2 cups add more for desired consistency. I like it on the milky side.
It doesn’t matter where you get your saturated fat, just get it.
