The preparation for the meals of a 22-day detox is a bit of work! I started posting the meal plan for the week and time got away from me. I kind of fell off track because I got sick of the same food over and over, no substance!
I pulled together a meal plan from Detoxinista’s 21 day plan, Minimalist Baker’s detox, and some ideas from the book to keep some variety. I can’t eat avocado, tomatoes, lentils, sweet potatoes and kale almost every lunch/dinner anymore! Too much of the same.
One thing that I have focused on is a good breakfast daily. Many mornings I just grab something and then keep picking all morning. Here are some breakfast ideas instead:
CHIA PUDDING. I have been making vanilla, simply 1/2 c chia seeds, 2 cups milk, 1 T maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend and let sit overnight. Top with nut butter!
I just came across this chocolate version, photo credit minimalist baker.
SMOOTHIES (my go-to)
My favorite two

Lots of good recipes in the 22 day revolution book, but lots elsewhere too.
Here is a favorite:
Another easy one can be found here with apples, carrots, lemon and ginger.
NUT BUTTER BALLS.
This is before we rolled them…tasted like cookie dough
This week, I used a little bit of vega, oatmeal, dates, almond flour, cashew butter, coconut oil, a little maple syrup and some mini chips for a delight. I’ll post the recipe if I can get it right again! For an easier one, I mix Vega with nut butter or sunflower seed butter and sometimes coconut oil if it needs to be less dry and mini chocolate chips (for extra delight)
OVERNIGHT OATS, Kristen’s recipe
I put a cup of oats in a mason jar, along with a tablespoon of chia powder, a teaspoon of maca powder, a tablespoon of protein powder, a tablespoon of mini choco chips, and then add in your milk choice, as well as fruit. Stir it all up. FILLING and pretty yummy!
What is your go-to breakfast?
