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.

Reboot your Life

5 Mar

I know, I have not been posting here for a while…Life has been hectic with us moving from San Diego To Los Angeles, new projects, and going to see my family in Brazil.

So, I thought this was good timing to post again, since the hubby and I just started a Detox 10 Day Diet, doing literally a Reboot in our bodies.

For those who watched the amazing movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead movie, you know what I am talking about. No spoiler alerts, don’t worry. Pretty much similar to Supersize Me in the sense that it shows how changing your diet can kill you or heal you. Here, Joe documents the difference two months of juicing fruits and vegetables have on his health, and the health of others who he comes in contact with.

We tried Rebooting before, a couple years ago and our experience was amazing. Even though we were doing the same diet, our bodies reacted to it very differently.I suffered all the possible side effects:headaches, weakness, constipation, acne, sugar and coffee withdrawal, etc. My husband’s skin was glowing, he felt light great.

Back then, it was much stricter, where you were not allowed coffee, tea, or any stimulants. There was also a big list of dos and don’ts. This time I noticed they added herbal tea, and built the diet based on the colors of the rainbow.

There are different plans that you can choose from, such as only juicing, or juicing and eating. They also have a 30 days paying plan. We chose the 10 Day Juicing and Eating Reboot (Free). It started yesterday.

The one thing I am doing differently this time is that I am drinking my one cup of coffee in the morning. I am Brazilian, just don’t know and don’t want to give up my daily caffeine.

I am going to try to post our progress here everyday.

It is good to be back!
