Detox Week 1, Day 7

Yay, one week down, two to go!

Here are today's eats:

Breakfast: Mango-Date-Plum-Banana-Strawberry Smoothie. This was really nice.

Snacks: Mid-morning we had baked chips and salsa, Carrot sticks and the hummus recipe from You Are What You Eat. My early evening snack was half a banana and a handful of raisins.

Lunch: Thai Vegetable Curry (zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, red peppers and kidney beans) which I served with brown rice. I based this curry on the recipe in You Are What You Eat. It feels much lighter than the curries I normally make. It doesn't have much coconut milk so I added a little bit of plain unsweetened soymilk. In place of the spices she uses (coriander, cumin, kaffir lime etc), I used some lime juice and a tsp or so of red curry paste which has all those ingredients in it and not to mention some red chilis which in a curry is a must!

I wasn't very hungry at dinner so I made myself "Ants on a Log", a stalk of celery filled with unsalted natural peanut butter and dotted with raisins. Totally unspectacular and did not need to be photographed!

ooh, please share the curry recipe!!

i have definitely noticed that since drinking smoothies every morning (i also throw spinach in mine), i don't really feel hungry during the day. i mostly just want to snack, so i eat rice cakes, hummus, raw veggies, dried fruit. i'm probably not getting enough veggies though.

All these foods you have made look so delicious. Whenever I think of detox I can't help but think of depriving myself. But I can see from your blog that this couldn't be further from the truth!
Do you feel better within yourself??

That Thai vegetable curry dish you had for lunch looks awesome.
