My grandparents were passing through this weekend and instead of going out to dinner like we usually do, I hosted dinner for six in our little Seattle apartment 🙂 I kept it pretty healthy serving Brown Rice Pesto Pasta, Cumin-Butter Sweet Potato Fries, the gorgeous salad below, and hot, whole grain cookies for dessert. In sticking with the Rose Cleanse I had extra helpings of creamy salad topped with sweet potatoes and finished with dark chocolate and steamy-sweet herbal tea.
8 oz mixed baby lettuces
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 large can artichoke hearts, drained
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked and chopped
1 1/2 avocados, chopped
2 Tbsp capers
1 1/2 avocados
3/4 cup water
juice of 3 lemons
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 cup fresh thyme
salt, pepper, and a bit of stevia
Blend dressing ingredients and coat salad thoroughly.
Cumin-Butter Sweet Potato Fry Ingredients:
2 large sweet potatoes, chopped into fry shapes
1 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
Preheat oven to 400. Coat Sweet Potatoes with butter and spices. Place, in a single layer, on baking sheets and bake for 30 minutes.
The salad was a hit and the sweet potato fries were polished off before I could get pictures!
I felt a little fuzzy this morning but shot down a couple ounces of wheatgrass which helped tremendously.
I’ve added another supplement to the cleanse this week: Herbal Answers Raw Aloe Vera. The aloe lubricates the intestines and helps things “move along” with more ease 😉 I add chocolate stevia to mine to make it tasty (or at least tolerable).
For those on the cleanse: Is anyone else supplementing with the Candex, aloe, or anything else?
