It is Day 1 of the 15 day Reboot diet program we are trying. It took me about 45 minutes last night to make up the food for breakfast, morning snack, and lunch today. That included having to clean the juicer and blender a few times each.
Cherry Cinnamon Apple Bake
1 cup Cherries (cut and discard pit)
2 Apples cored and chopped
3 Tbsp. Raisins (choose golden variety for a twist)
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
Spray baking dish with expeller pressed canola oil
Place into oven safe baking dish and cover
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until apples are soft
Cool and enjoy!
That is a huge amount of food. I’m trying to get it down but I’m stuffed after eating about half of it. I think I’ll be grazing most of the morning.
Next is a midmorning green juice. I made this up for the SO last night and I tried it. It wasn’t horrible but wasn’t my favorite. I’ll make mine up fresh and maybe add a bit more fruit to sweeten it up.
Lunch is a large salad and:
Raw Carrot Ginger Soup
Makes 2, 1 1/2 cup servings – save 1 for dinner
3 cups Carrot Juice
1 ripe Avocado
2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
1 Tbsp. Ginger, minced
1/4 tsp. ground Cayenne Pepper
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 cup Coconut Meat, optional
2 Tbsp. Avocado or Olive Oil, for garnish
2 Tbsp. Fresh Cilantro, chopped, for garnish
Puree the first seven ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings if necessary. Garnish the soup with a drizzle of oil and the chopped cilantro.
I liked the soup. It was quite good and I’m not a fan of cold soups usually. Just that filled me up. It is 3:30 and I haven’t eaten all my salad yet.
The SO just called begging to be allowed to eat something else for dinner. He says he’ll die if he doesn’t have something more substantial. He liked the food so far though. I had to remind him that no one is holding a gun to his head and making him eat this. He wanted to play along.
He wants to keep going with the breakfasts and dinners though. Tomorrow is one of my long days too so I’ll prep all the food for both of us tonight.
I’m having a hard time getting all the food down but I don’t feel super full. I feel like I’m just on the edge of maybe being hungry. We’ll see how hard it is for me not to snack tonight.
