Feta Wraps -w- Herbs De Provence and Rose Cleanse Day 26

Today’s post might be TMI. I have noticed however, in detox circles, people are up for talking about pretty much anything body-related. So here we go: (I apologize to any of the men-folk reading ;)) It’s Rose Cleanse day 26 and I started my period yesterday. I usually get quite weepy a good WEEK before I start my period and spend the first day enduring (usually fairly mild) cramps. I always notice that when I eat cleaner, everything just runs so much more smoothly (and vice-versa) and this month is no exception. My experience so far has been ONE DAY of feeling extra emotional, followed by a few minutes (literally) of cramping. I kind of laughed. It’s really been pretty uneventful and I’d like to keep it that way! Alright, over-sharing time complete. Let’s eat.

Ingredients:

1 large cucumber
2 roma tomatoes
2 oz raw goat feta
small handful chives
1 Tbsp Herbs De Provence
1-2 cloves raw garlic
romaine, or your favorite lettuce leaves for wrapping
lots of fresh lemon juice and NuNaturals stevia

Dice cucumber and tomato (remove seeds if you wish) and place in a medium-sized bowl. Crumble feta, chop chives, mince garlic and add. Season with Herbs De Provence and dress with lots of lemon juice and stevia. Mix and wrap in your favorite lettuce leaf.

I ate this with a side of roasted beets and a bar of Hibiscus&Ginger Raw Organic Chocolate from a great company called Fearless.

  1. ou are so funny! LOL… we sometimes do tend to share a bit much, don’t we? πŸ˜‰ That aside, I love this recipe. Super simple and I am loving the use of raw feta, which I have never tried before. And thanks for sharing the link for Fearless, I love raw organic chocolate and I really like the chocolate hibiscus combo. Sounds yummy!

    Hey Rande,
    I notice the same thing with my period! And speaking of which, I’m in the mood for extra chocolate this week and I’ve been eyeing up that chocolate for quite some time…what do you think of it? I’m kind of in love with Equal Exchange and some local raw chocolates but I’d love to try something new.

      They are pretty tasty, I think the original flavor is my favorite. The consistency is definitely different in the raw chocolates.

      I’m obsessed with that brand…and that specific flavor! It’s pricey, so it’s always a special treat…but ahhhh it’s divine. Hope you try it πŸ™‚

  3. Same here! I used to get SICK during my period, almost flu-like with nausea and migraine. I’d be couched for days. Since I started Detox 4 Women a few months ago its almost completely uneventful, almsot no PMS and my flow is lighter and shorter. Yay!

  4. I am the same when I am coming up to my period :((((
    Yum…. Feta is so delish…. K xx

    Where do you get raw goat feta?! What brand:)?

    • Rande McDaniel

      There is only one store that I can find it at here in Seattle and that’s our PCC market. I’m pretty sure you can get it online though, the brand is Redwood Hill Farm πŸ™‚
