Reboot Detox Day 1

6 Mar

The first day of our Reboot was pretty easy. I went shopping for the first phase of the program (days 1 to 5), and bought as much as organic produce as I could. I bought most things at Costco and Trader Joe’s and the final cost was around $200 US dollars.

When I got home I washed everything in water with white vinegar and the vegetable’s cleaning solution I buy at Traders or Sprouts. Then dried, prepped and stored it all to make my life easier.

The First Day Menu looked like this:

When you wake up:8 0z (250 ml) hot water with lemon and ginger

Breakfast: Berry-Apple Cinnamon Bake (see recipe on my Instagram)

Morning Snack: Carrot Apple Ginger Juice (recipe below)

6 carrots 4 apples 2 inch (5cm) fresh ginger

6 carrots
4 apples
2 inch (5cm) fresh ginger

Lunch: Reboot Green Salad (recipe below)+ Carrot and Sweet Potato Fries


Afternoon Snack: Carrot Apple Ginger Juice

Dinner: Kale and avocado Salad with Vinaigrette +Carrot and Sweet Potato Fries (recipe at Reboot with Joe website)

Before Bed: Herbal Tea

One thing that makes it easier is that the morning and afternoon snacks are the same, and all recipes yield 2 servings, so you can save one serving for later.

And another thing is that I always adapt the recipes to my taste and convenience. If I don’t like something, or cannot find it at the store, I try to substitute it for another same color vegetable. I know it is not the same, but I refuse to suffer and eat something I hate (like raw cilantro),or spend a fortune on something that is off season.

First day was easy. No side effects. I actually felt a rush of energy mid-afternoon as if I had just drank 3 shots of espresso.

Nine days to go.

    I tried this a while back too. I’ve tried a lot of things, lol! Seem to have settled on the ” Nourishing Traditions” though. I love food and love to cook from scratch, it just works for me and without trying I lost 10 pounds and feel great. One thing I’ve learned is that everybody’s body is different, just a matter of what is best for your own self. Fun blog you have! Glad I found it:)

      I agree. I have tried many things too. My goal was to stop the inflammation pain and lose the weight I gained when I stopped exercising due to an injury. For me, staying away of processed sugar, flour and pretty much everything that comes in a box or package has dramatically changed my health. I like the concept of “Nourishing Traditions” but don’t know a whole lot about it. Thank you for stopping by!
