So You're Cleansing: Refreshing Pear & Avocado Salad & Many More

Here we go again!  I'm leading a cleanse at Core Power and i've decided to clean up my act with the group.  Good Lord - Lock the Wine and Chocolate Up & Hide the Key!  A girlfriend asked me today to post what i've been eating to give her some ideas and inspire her to get back on track so here is a little looksie at what Miss M's been noshing on since Friday and some of my personal fave's that i'll probably be nibbling on throughout the week.


Yesterday's lunch from some organic cabbage a student brought me:


Simple, seasonal, and flavorful, Pears add a sweet touch and avocado a rich texture to this filling entree salad.

Refreshing Pear & Avocado Salad (measurements are approximate)

1 pear chopped
1/4 ripe bacon avocado chopped
1 Tbsp sliced almonds
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp fresh parsley
2 handfuls of mixed greens chopped
1 cup chopped purple cabbage

Dressing:
1 Tbsp Tahini
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 lemon squeezed
a few shakes of onion powder
a small shake of garlic powder

Today's Lunch was a Burrito inside a Big chard leaf.  Inside was:

homemade guacamole
sprout salad
chopped hard boiled egg
pinto beans

Lately for breakfast i've been enjoying muesli hot and cold.  Start with a raw unsalted organic trail mix or a few handfuls of nuts/seeds/dried fruits/flax seeds, add 1/2 a chopped apple and 1/2 a chopped banana.  Top with cinnamon and almond milk.  I like to put the whole thing in a pot and heat it up on colder mornings.

Other Breakfast ideas:

The Chelater - Detox Smoothie

Chia Bowl with Homemade Almond Milk and Seasonal Fruits


and muesli with pear or apple


A warm bowl of amaranth without maple syrup


Overnight Oats

Something more savory....

Hara Mara inspired skinny dip for veggies


Something with beets for sure since they cleanse the liver



Rawk N'Rolls ALWAYS!


ohhh, southwestern salad could be good too, but leave the corn out!

AND of course something sweet...


Probably some banana fro yo made with hempseeds instead of almond butter


Maybe some cashew cookies??? YES, cleanse approved - just don't go overboard on eating them!

Cobbler sans agave...i'll use dates instead


And you thought cleansing would be bland and boring!!!!!  I hope to prove you wrong!
