I’ve recently fallen in love with creamy, dreamy goat and sheep yogurts. I love them unsweetened, silky and tart, they make a lovely dessert or simple breakfast. In this recipe I blend a container with fresh herbs and spicy garlic for a bright, flavorful dressing that is great over baby greens, zucchini noodles, dipping veggies, or spreading on sandwiches in place of mayo.
1 small container plain goat or sheep yogurt
1 small handful fresh chives
1 small handful fresh basil
1 small handful fresh tarragon
2 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lemon
sea salt, to taste
Blend until creamy.
One week of Rose Cleansing. One week of juicing ’til dinner without an almond milk latte or cacao spiked carrot juice in sight 🙂
I’m re-learning to appreciate the lighter, more vibrant energy that comes from juicing instead of the jittery caffeinated energy that I’ve found so easy to rely on.
Clothes fitting a little more comfortably.
Much more calmness and mental clarity during the day.
A few head and body aches
Needing some extra rest.
I had a very near disaster today when I got halfway to work and realized I’d forgotten my juice! Thankfully I leave early and had time to go back. Crisis averted. I brought along a berry chai (2 bags Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry and 2 bags herbal chai steeped in 4 cups hot water with stevia) and some yummy bright pink veggie juice loaded with beets!
Dinner was inspired by the Detoxinista. This Roasted Pepper Cream Sauce is great on kelp noodles, or spiralized veggies of any kind!
1 cup goat yogurt (raw if you’re lucky enough to have it!)
2 large roasted red peppers (de-seed raw peppers and broil, skin side up for 10 minutes)
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil
salt, pepper, and stevia to taste
pinch of cayenne
Blend until creamy.
Today was easily the best day I’ve had on the cleanse, no headaches or really anything negative. I felt more calm and present at work than usual and juicing sustained me well until evening. I’m quite tired now that my flights are over but grateful for a day that felt so good.
