Since so many of you signed up to do the PC14 parasite cleanse I thought I’d share what I’ve been coming up with to eat/drink during the first week.
It all started with a trip to Whole Foods and The Container Store followed by a cleaning out and organizing of the fridge. That’s one big reason I’ve been able to keep moving forward. I can get obsessive about stuff like that, and I find that I’m always making sure the fridge stays like I want it. I wonder how long the fam is gonna tolerate this. LOL!
A bit about the cleanse:
It’s 14 days, and I’m offering the coaching at no cost for the current program. The herbs we take are sooo nasty, but we do get to eat food. Foods excluded are sugar, meats, dairy, grains. Foods that parasites hate (FPH) are to be included in each meal eaten. The list includes but is not limited to papaya (especially seeds), pineapple, berries, citrus fruits (except oranges), pomegranate, coconut and any other sour fruit, raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, and lots of spices. Smoothies, soups and salads are the best way to do this, but we get creative and figure out other things to eat too.
The night before we started, last Sunday, I made some wonderful juice by tossing a whole small red cabbage, a whole small pineapple, about a one inch chunk of garlic, a whole lemon with peel into the juicer.
I really enjoyed the pineapple carrot smoothie. Sometimes I don’t write down the amounts, but this was about 2 cups of carrot and green apple juice, 1 cup fresh pineapple, a teaspoon or 2 each of chia seeds and ground turmeric. THIS. WAS. GOOD. Add Stevia if you need to because I cannot remember if I did or not.
Today was the first time I had something other than a beverage for breakfast. This frittata was pretty simple, using bell peppers, spinach, garlic and onions sautéed in olive oil.
Pour well beaten eggs into the skillet and stir into the veggies. Top with fresh avocado and optional vegan cheese (I personally didn’t care for the cheese but my daughter liked it). Cook in a 375 degree oven for about 8 minutes. Slice and serve.
Today I wanted something sweet, and I needed to add at least one more FPH to my breakfast so I came up with this Strawberry Almond smoothie. This might be my favorite smoothie yet.
So this pretty much what I’ve had this week for breakfast, some days repeating a smoothie. I’ll have to share the lunch and dinner recipes in another post. Are you doing the cleanse? If so, what are you eating? And if not, did any of these recipes get your attention? I only post the good ones, so let me know if you give them a try. Most of them are kid tested too.
