My goal was to prepare meals that my family would eat and love, while still staying on the detox diet.
To sub stevia for sugar: sugar to sweetleaf stevia conversion chart. I use sweetleaf stevia exclusively, and for my own preference, sub less stevia than they call for. They call for 12 pkts to sub for 1/2 c sugar; I use 8. I reduce the amount by one third. I also reduce the amount of baseline sugar a recipe calls for, by half. My formula: recipe /2, apply stevia conversion /two thirds.
2 eggs, prepared according to preference (if cooking sunny- side up, use coconut oil in the pan) + mushroom and brussels sprouts hash (or other vegetable hash combination).
Check off daily sulpher rich, and crucifer.
Apple cinnamon oatmeal from homemade oatmeal mix (grate in one apple before cooking), and eat with coconut milk and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or 2 clementines. To make this meal protein- balanced, add 2 oz homemade breakfast sausage.
Check off 1 of 2 daily fiber rich, and citrus (and 2 of 8 oz daily protein, if adding sausage).
Oatmeal flaxseed pancakes, sub brown rice or coconut flour for the flour called for, and whisk 4 T ground flaxseeds into the batter. Prepare as directed. Grate 1 apple and cook lightly, and mash into an applesauce. Sprinkle in a little cinnamon and vanilla extract, and thin with water to use in place of syrup for your pancakes.
Check off daily sulpher and daily fiber rich (flaxseeds are high in fiber).
If you are craving bread or toast, all is not lost. Whole Foods has a decent gluten- free bakery case, for a loaf of bread for toast if you are desperate (watch the sugar). Or make a pan of buttermilk cornbread, made with brown rice flour instead of wheat flour, and stevia to replace the honey. (This is a great gluten- free baking blog if you want to become an expert at baking on the detox diet. Just remember to sub unrefined flours for refined flours, and stevia for sugar.)
Toast your bread or cornbread, and enjoy with real butter, no sugar added peanut butter, or coconut butter, melted in. Eat with 1 c sliced strawberries. To make this meal protein- balanced, add an egg prepared to preference, or 2 oz homemade breakfast sausage.
Check off 1 of 2 daily fiber rich (and 2 of 8 oz daily protein if adding sausage, or 1/2 daily sulpher, if adding eggs).
Make a fruit salad of clementines or orange sections, 1 sliced banana, 1 chopped apple, and 1 c sliced berries, with whatever other fruit you have on hand (no grapefruit), and a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice. You can use whatever fruit you have as long as you include 2 fiber rich choices and your citrus. Since this will make 6 to 8 cups of salad, you will have 2 cups of it with breakfast and eat the rest with snacks and meals throughout the day. For breakfast, eat with homemade oatmeal, or 1 c organic cottage cheese, or 1 c mixed raw nuts.
Check off 2 of 2 daily fiber rich, and citrus.
2 egg omelette made with cheese, onions, peppers, garlic, or whatever combination of vegetables you prefer, cooked in coconut oil. I like to use cheese, onions, and salsa in my omelette, and eat with a fresh chopped tomato and avocado on the side.
Check off daily sulpher and daily omega 3 rich fat (if you include the avocado).
Creamy rice pudding made with leftover brown rice, and 2 pkts stevia in place of the honey. Leave out the raisins, and add about a 1/2 tsp cinnamon, to make the pudding taste sweeter. Chop an apple and saute in butter until soft. Sprinkle apple and pudding with cinnamon and enjoy.
Check off 1 of 2 daily fiber rich.
