I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life (possibly because I'm also the most sedentary..)
THUS I've been trying to cut out bready stuff.
Which is basically like trying to cut out your soul mate.
I did an ALL juice cleanse for almost 5 days.
It was tough.
Also, I don't drink liquids quickly.
I'm that person standing at the bar, smiling awkwardly, sipping her jagerbomb because chugging it is just out of the question.
Anywho. I lost 3 kilos and felt a lot better by the end of it, less bloated and with smoother skin.
At some points I was on the verge of tears.
But maybe that was the
This was the first meal I made after the cleanse. It was brewing in my brain for 4.5 days.
Roasted Beet Salad with Yoghurt Tahini Dressing.
6 roasted beets, peeled
1/4 - 1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 Tablespoons pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 Tablespoons roasted pecans
1/2 cup soy beans, cooked
1 or 2 avocados, diced
pinch red pepper flakes
5 cups mixed lettuces
1 handful chopped basil
1 handful chopped parsley
1 handful chopped mint
Eggs, poached (optional)
(honestly, I add so much to dressings, that giving correct portions is difficult... add and taste as you go?!)
1 teaspoon tahini
1 teaspoon honey
1/3 cup yoghurt
1 garlic clove
Toss all salad ingredients together in a big bowl.
Mix all dressing ingredients together, taste, season to your liking.
Serve drizzled with dressing and a perfectly poached egg on top!
(Mine wasn't perfect.... but ideally.... a perfectly poached egg!)
Go forth and eat, my vegetable cherubs!
