Welcome to Day 1! Some of you may be excited, some of you may not be looking forward to the next eleven days and some of you might be a bit nervous. We are here to put your mind at ease by telling you that you can do it! We have full faith that you can get through the next twelve days and you will feel incredible after it's all over. First of all let's just touch on the different supplements that you will be taking. You will be taking two tablets from each bottle that come with the set and also 40 drops of the CL Herbal Extract twice a day. But what do all of these supplements do? Let's start with the Biliherb. This helps stimulate bile production by the liver, aids in the dissolution of gallstones and also decreases cholesterol buildup in the gallbladder. The Cleansherb rids muscles and the lymphatic system of toxic waste and also helps flush these wastes out of the body via the urinary system. The Laxaherb helps to cleanse the intestinal tract and lastly the Herbal Extract helps cleansing of the digestive tract. This all sounds like great stuff right?! Okay so now that you know a little about the supplements your taking let's move on to the FOOD! Your Herbal D-Tox kit will come with a meal guidebook. You will find that the food is listed into three different sections. Section one includes foods such as beef, fish, white rice, tofu and black coffee. Section two has foods such as almonds, brown rice or quinoa, popcorn and a variety of different fruit. Section three lists different vegetables, certain herbs and also most oils except peanut oil. On the diet you should eat 80% alkaline and neutral foods in your diet from section two and three of the guidebook and limit your intake of acid forming foods to 20% from section one. You can eat as much as your heart desires BUT you aren't allowed any food that's not on the list. So without further ado here are the recipes that helped us breeze through day one and we bet they will help you do the same! Happy Cleansing!
Korean style rolled omelette
Glutinous Millet cooked with onion stock
White bean soup
Curried rice with red lentils
Cauliflower and broccoli with cashews and sunflower seeds
KOREAN STYLE ROLLED OMELETTE
Korean style rolled omelette is pretty easy to make once you get the hang of the method. We've included a video for you to help you understand how to roll those tasty little things up!
For our breakfast we kept it simple and didn't use all the ingredients called for in the video. Instead we opted to simply add in chopped spring onion into the egg mixture. Such a simple combination but ever so delicious!
GLUTINOUS MILLET COOKED WITH ONION STOCK
We used this recipe:
We substituted the boiling water with a stock made from HarvestSun's Organic Bouillon Cubes in Onion flavour. This brand of bouillon does not contain yeast which is not allowed on the Wild Rose D-Tox. Surprisingly, many stocks contain yeast. Always read the labels!
We also used a glutinous Millet that can be found at your local Korean grocer. Our favorite one here in Vancouver is Kim's Market on Broadway St.
WHITE BEAN SOUP:
We used this recipe:
But we opted not to use the food processor to chop the veggies and forego using the crockpot since we wanted a less "mushy" soup.
CURRIED RICE AND RED LENTILS
The recipe used was:
SAUTÉE BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER WITH CASHEWS AND SUNFLOWER SEEDS
To add on top of the curried rice we sautéed broccoli and cauliflower with cashews and sunflower seeds. We added them to a pan with water and butter and closed the lid until vegetables were tender.
