Clean Day 7

We had a off day because Ben went out to lunch with his co-workers, which was fine though. They luckily went to Whole Foods for lunch. So what I decided to do was go ahead and make what I had planned but give Ben a smaller portion for his lite dinner later in the day. Ben stopped on the way from lunch to have his supplements. He ate a large Salmon Salad, but he said he was still hungry:(

  • Scoops of Vanilla Nourish and Move: with Blueberries, a small fuji apple, two table spoons of flax seed meal, two tablespoons of almond meal, two packs of Stevia, dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, 8oz of almond milk, 12oz of water and a 1/2 cup of ice.
  • Cranberry green tea with Meyer lemon zest and the juice and some Stevia



Stuffed Acorn Squash

Now this is a pretty easy recipe. The only thing missing from what I would of added before the detox is butter. So that is it pretty normal recipe. You will love it!!

  • Turn oven to 400 degrees
  • grab a cookie sheet or a baking dish
  • grab one Acorn squash and cut in half
  • scoop out the seeds and strings(save the seeds to make toasted seasoned seeds like I did with the Butternut Squash Seeds)
  • place the squash cut side down on sheet and place in oven for about 40 minutes


  • Grab a rice cooker
  • measure out 3oz of brown rice
  • measure our 3oz of Basmati Rice (all black)
  • wash rice and rinse
  • grab a shallot, chop it and add to rice
  • grab two garlic cloves, chop them and add to rice
  • small splash of EV olive oil
  • a few good cranks of the pepper mill
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Sage plus a little extra
  • add a cup in a half of low sodium chicken stock(or veggie)
  • turn rice cooker on and stir hear and there until the machine turns off


This is optional if you don't like meat instead of using meat I add about 1/4 cup of chopped toasted Pecans to make the dish Vegan.

  • grab a good size fry pan or a saute pan
  • grab 1/4 pound ground turkey
  • add a splash of EV olive oil
  • turn burner to medium heat
  • add a dash of sage
  • add a few good cranks of the pepper mill
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • saute until fully cooked

  • rice should be about done
  • add about two tablespoons of dried cranberries (you can add a little more if you like them) to the rice.
  • Combine the rice mixture with the meat mixture
  • I also added toasted Pecans with the rice mixture along with the ground Turkey


The Acorn squash should be done. Take out of the oven and flip over brush some olive oil inside the opening and salt and pepper them too. I added some Meyer lemon zest and a squeeze of the juice as well. Set in bowls cut side up. If you want to put them on a plate I would cut a little off the bottom a bit so it sets flat.
Scoop rice mixture into acorn Squash and you are done!! A complete meal!! So easy and really tasty. Make sure when you eat it you get a bite of the squash with the rice mixture with every bite:)


3pm Shake
