Breakfast - on the Liver Cleanse Diet

I promised to talk more about foods on this restricted diet - so here goes.

How I start my day on this liver cleanse diet :
First - at least 8 ounces of filtered water (sometimes with a squeeze of lemon)
I follow that with 4 ounces of Body Balance that I sip slowly giving my body time to absorb the nutrients. I love this stuff!

Then I make a fruit & fiber shake out of a small pear or green apple, some berries and a scoop of flax with water. Again, I drink this slowly allowing the drink to sit in my mouth for a min before swallowing to help with digestion.

Next it's time for some exercise while the fruit has time to do it's thing. This is usually yoga, some weights and something energetic like karate kicks, jumping or running. When the weather warms up I'll be walking outside.

Then, depending on my schedule, I either cook up some veggies & eggs or some oats & millet.

Egg & Veggie skillet:
Saute sliced vegetables in a little olive oil (any combination you like - at least a cup)
When they are almost done, crack an egg in the center and cover the pan. This will poach the egg - takes just a couple of minutes.
Season with Bragg's Liquid Aminos and a good spicy salsa or hot sauce which helps your body digest the egg.
Enjoy with your favorite green tea.

Oats & Millet: 
I start with a warm skillet and lightly toast a handful of organic rolled oats. Then I add about a 1/4 cup of millet that has been precooked the day before. ( I keep some in the fridge as I use it a lot)
Add about a 1/2 cup of water, stir and simmer a few minutes.
Serve with cinnamon and some almond or rice milk.  Yum!

So you see, this way of eating doesn't have to deprive you of very satisfying meals. I'd love to hear any recipes you come up with.

Be well ~

  1. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

    It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's
    very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability
    and visual appeal. I must say you've done a great job with
    this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me
    on Opera. Excellent Blog!
