Cheddar Dijon Salad and Rose Cleanse Day 2

Cheddar Dijon Salad

Two days into the Rose Cleanse and I’m loving it! I’m amazed at how freeing it is to not have to worry about sitting down to meals during the day. I know it sounds crazy but I feel so completely energized and satisfied with my juices and it leaves so much room to accomplish what I want to in the day and feel good while I’m doing it. I did notice moments where I just wanted to munch, regardless of not being hungry…the hour and a half drive to Seattle, the moment when my roommates tire blew while we were driving, shopping for delicious dinner ingredients…but when I acknowledged that I was just feeling stressy and not hungry it passed quickly enough and I happily enjoyed my dinner

Some of today's fresh juice.

when the time came (see below!!). I have a couple of friends joining me on the cleanse (yay!) and one of the biggest tips I had was to not starve yourself during the day!! If you’re out there doing this, there is no reason you should spend the day thinking about dinner. I had so much juice today (so.much.juice.) and felt so nourished that when it was time to sit down and eat I definitely loved every bite but didn’t feel a need to shove it in my face as quickly as possible. I’ll be curious to see how I do on a work day as a lot of the reason that I’m doing this is to calm down my tendencies to eat emotionally. I’ll keep you posted! Here is the delicious salad I had tonight along with a yummy beet stew (I freaking love beets.) and a gorgeous (outrageously expensive) bite-sized Burnt Caramel Dark Chocolate.


1 head romaine, chopped
4 oz raw goat cheddar, shredded
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 red onion, chopped
1 clove raw garlic, minced
2-4 Tbsp dijon mustard
sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
2 dropperfulls NuNaturals stevia (optional)

Toss so that dijon and cheddar coat the salad.

Back-to-Work Cheese and Nori Wraps

Couldn't--Be-Simpler Cheese and Nori Wraps

Couldn't--Be-Simpler Cheese and Nori Wraps

These really could not be any simpler. I’m guessing most everybody is back to work or school today and probably not terribly interested in spending excess time in the kitchen. I know I’m feeling a need for a kitchen break after the holiday! I don’t plan on taking anything more complicated than this for the next few days:

Nori Sheets
Goat or Sheep cheese- unsalted, firm, and preferably raw

Slice up cheese. Wrap in Nori.
