Detox Week 1, Day 6

Husband and I went grocery shopping and spent $27 on loads of fruits and vegetables. Some of the things we got: lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, avocados, spinach, zucchini, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, celery, jalapeno peppers, granny smith apples, fuji apples, nectarines, bosc pears, bananas and fresh roasted peanuts. Some organic, some not. A very affordable and lovely haul if I do say so myself!

Saturday is quite a lazy day for me. I usually do a few chores in the morning and then just chill out the rest of the day. I wanted to spend the least amount of time in the kitchen today. At least that's what I tried to do. I didn't cook anything from You Are What You Eat today but I know I used ingredients that are A-OK in Gillian's book!

Breakfast was this berry blast smoothie that had strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, dates and apple.

Mid morning snack was a handful of fresh roasted peanuts in the shell (no salt) and late afternoon was a banana and a handful of raisins. I also had a cup of lemongrass tea.

Lunch was a rendition of last night's dinner. I had to use up these sprouted grain tortillas before they went bad as there are no preservatives in them. I made a black bean wrap with fresh yellow peppers, fresh homemade guacamole and salsa.

Salsa made with fresh ripe roma tomatoes that we bought today.

My husband is a snacky kind of guy so I had the idea to make these baked tortilla chips. I just cut up a couple of sprouted grain tortillas and put them into the oven on a lightly oiled baking sheet at 400 F for about 4 minutes. You can tell the bottom ones are burnt. That was my first go at them and I left them in too long! These were so nice. They baked up perfectly crisp. I liked them so much that I only ate half of my wrap and abandoned the other tortilla half to use a few chips to scoop up the beans. I think these will be my new favorite snack after the diet instead of crackers.

Dinner was a salad of green leaf lettuce, spinach, red onions, red and yellow peppers, thinly sliced cucumber and sunflower seeds drizzled with yummy goddess dressing.

Hey dahlin'! you're doing so well! I was thinking of doing a 1 week raw sort of thing but I haven't quite pushed myself to do it yet. Have you ever done that?

Dawn said...

You got a lot for your money! Those sprouted grain tortillas are delicious and the wraps look fabulous.

I have never done a complete raw diet as of yet. I would like to in the future. Maybe in the summer!

Using up sprouted grain tortillas hey!
It's a tough job but someone's got to do it.
