I know that this fast seems pretty strict, honestly, I hope I can do it myself! I thought it might be helpful if we posted a few ideas for what you CAN eat, remember these are just ideas, eat what you want, within the guidelines of course!
oatmeal with berries, nuts, honey
eggs, scrambled with vegetables or alone
yogurt and fruit (try to avoid ones with sugar)
Lunch or Dinner
green salad with veggies, lean protein, and oil and vinegar
baked chicken breast with brown rice and vegetables
baked chicken breast with baked sweet potatoes and steamed green beans
baked fish and steamed broccoli, baked potato with salsa
homemade beef stew
horseradish roast beef with skinny mashed potatoes and carrots
yogurt and fruit
raw vegetables and hummus
apple slices with cinnamon
apple slices or celery sticks with 1 tbsp nut butter (no sugar added, preferably)
Drink lots of water, your body will be going through a detox period and you need it, aim for 12 8 oz. glasses a day
Try salsa as a salad dressing and on top of your baked potato, it’s really delicious
You can eat unlimited vegetables except corn and potatoes, limit those to 1-2 servings/day
Try plain Greek yogurt on potatoes
Try quinoa rather than oatmeal, protein is good in the morning. Also, for a meatless dish I like quinoa with broccoli, tomatoes, and carrots with seasonings
Use unlimited herbs and spices, get creative, try new things,I have been using crushed red peppers sprinkled on popcorn and really like it, also try cinnamon or nutmeg in your tea or coffee instead of sweetener, I have been putting allspice in with my coffee grounds and it’s delicious. I will make Mama’s rice one day next week and take pictures so I can share that recipe, it’s kind of an evolved creation of my own.
Good luck, remember we are all in this together, if I can do it, anyone can!!
