Detox Diet Breakfast
Nutty Berry Smoothie
Blend 1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk, 1/2 medium ripe banana, 1 tablespoon creamy peanut or nut butter, 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries, and 1/2 cup crushed ice. (262 calories)
+ Coffee with 2 tablespoons 1% milk (13 calories)
We decided to skip this breakfast and do the day one breakfast again, but without the banana to keep the calorie count similar.
Detox Diet Lunch
Quinoa Salad with Salmon
Combine 50g of flaked, cooked salmon, 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, 7 quartered cherry tomatoes, 1/4 cup chopped cucumber, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, 2 teaspoons each olive oil and red wine vinegar, and dash each of salt and pepper. Toss gently. (332 calories)
+ Grapes, 1 cup (104 calories) . I substituted the cherry tomatoes for 1/2 a red pepper for my husband. For myself, I made a few adjustments. Instead of 1/2 cup of quinoa I added only 2 tablespoons and then ‘beefed’ up the salad with a handful of baby spinach and some extra cucumber.
Detox Diet Snack
10 baby carrots and 1/4 cup hummus. I decided to make my own hummus. Click here for the recipe.
Detox Diet Dinner
Grilled Steak with Brown Rice and Broccoli
Grilled or broiled flank steak, 115g (202 calories)
+ Cooked brown rice, 3/4 cup (164 calories)
+ Lemon Broccoli, 1 cup
Toss 1 cup steamed broccoli with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil. (60 calories) We actually ate this with lamb backstrap because that is what I had in the freezer. I didn’t have quite enough broccoli, so I added some peas to the brown rice!
Day 2 notes: Cook an extra 2/3 of a cup of brown rice to use for Day 3 Dinner.
