Reboot Detox Day 3

9 Apr

The third day was my worst day so far! I was cranky, had a terrible headache and crazy cravings for a fat bread like Hallah or Brioche with President salted butter and sharp cheddar cheese. Oh, and eggs! Strangely no cravings for chocolate or sweets, but fat and protein instead.

Day 3 Menu:

When you wake up: Hot water with lemon and ginger

Breakfast: Get your Greens Smoothie

Morning Snack: Green Lemonade

Lunch: Squash and Apple Soup

Afternoon Snack: Green Lemonade

Dinner: Raw Carrot Ginger Soup+Roasted Acorn Squash Stuffed with Mushroom and Sage

Squash and Apple Soup – Adapted

I am not a big fan of sweet soups, so  I decided to adapt this recipe by sauteeing all the ingredients instead. Here is what I did:

  1. Sautee the onions in olive oil until they caramelized, add 2 cloves of minced garlic and cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Then deglaze the pan with some white vinegar.
  3. Meanwhile, in another pan  quickly sautee chopped squash, apples and carrots in olive oil.
  4. When the onions are ready  add the veggies, sea salt, and pepper.
  5. Add 1 cup of vegetable stock or broth and close the pan with a lid.
  6. Let it cook for five minutes and add 1 cup of shredded cabbage for crunchiness.
  7. Wait three minutes, season with more salt and pepper and vinegar to taste.

Enjoy!
