My eats for the day on the SELF Drop10 Detox.
Breakfast: Coconut-Almond Smoothie
This was pretty tasty! The chia seeds made it thick, which made it seem a little heartier. I hate that I can’t taste the almond butter though…I haven’t been able to in any of the smoothies that have called for them. I suppose they’re function is just to add fat? As much as I love nut butters, it just seems like bit of waste. Overall, the flavors in the smoothie were nice. The banana and cocoa really came out and the addition of the coconut added some nice texture. I would make this again, but would take out the almond butter.
Lunch: Sesame-Kale Noodle Salad
Repeat of yesterday. This plan provides 7 different lunches, but good gawd, but fridge is getting full with all of the containers of 1/2 used stuff I’m filling it with. Plus, I really enjoyed this yesterday and it was easy to throw together. However, i did change the dressing. I wasn’t loving the avocado-miso thing, so I made a spicy peanut dressing. I combined peanut butter, sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and a touch of honey. Much better.
Dinner: Eggplant Parmesan
I can’t believe a dish like this is included on a “detox” plan. It. Was. AMAZING. Blew my skirt right up. For the sauce, I did add more garlic and seasoning that the recipe called for. What can I say? I like some spice. And for the record, I was in the habit of buying Trader Joe’s oh-so-convenient minced garlic, but after using fresh garlic (smashed in a press), we may have to break up. I had forgotten how pungent and spicy fresh garlic is! SO GOOD.
Snack 1 & 2 – Egg on Wasa. I had to work late and didn’t want to cart a cucumber and cream cheese with me. But the egg is pretty darn good.
Exercise – stretches
