Clean Day 6 & 7

Same old same old. In the morning. I did make Matcha Green Tea lattes with almond milk stevia and some vanilla extract. So good!

Lunch was a throw together for sure. I had some random things in the refrigerator so I just made a pretty rustic bean, veggie and pasta dish.

What you will need:
1 can of Cannellini Beans rinsed
1/2 head of cauliflower chopped
1 leek sliced into thin ribbons (just the white and about half way up the green)
5 leaves of Swiss chard remove rib and chop into thin ribbons
1 container of mushrooms cleaned and chopped
two cloves of garlic chopped
4 fresh sage leaves chopped into thin ribbons
1 pound of brown rice pasta
a couple of good pinches of white pepper
1/2 cup of veggie or chicken broth
salt to taste
Optional nuts or seed toppings 
1 tbsp of grape seed oil
*after you cut your leeks into ribbons add them to a bowl of cold water and let them soak for a minute or two and then drain them in a colander and rinse well under the faucet.
Add your oil to your pan and turn to medium heat. Add your leeks and let them soften a bit the add your garlic, mushrooms, white pepper, sage and cook four about 5 minutes stir and combine. Fill a large pot of water and place on stove to high and sprinkle with salt. Once boiling add your rice pasta.

Add the stock, Swiss chard and the beans and let them cook for about another 8 minutes stir and combine. Once your pasta is ready drain and leave a little of the pasta water in the pasta.
It should look like this when you are done.

Add some pasta to a dish and top with mixture. You will have quite a bit left over. Go ahead and combine the mixture and the pasta in a container and save for the next day or for dinner later on.

We had our re-peat afternoon shake, so good! I made a simple salad for us for dinner.

This morning we had a Island Paradise shake. Basically, 1/2 cup of mango, 1/2 cup of pineapple, one apple, two tbsp of organic dried coconut, scoops of vanilla nourish, scoops of move, stevia, two tbsp of almond meal and two tbsp of chia seeds, 2 cups of water and 1 cup of almond milk.

Today I took the left overs from yesterday and warmed them up with some broth and heat through in a pan with the top on.  
I had some nice wile Alaskan cod in the freezer so I thawed it in the sink in some water for about 20 minutes and then sprinkled with some Organic Garlic Pepper blend from Costco and some grape seed oil. I placed it on some parchment paper in a baking sheet in a 375 degree oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. Cod takes not time to cook. Just poke and see it the juices run clear and you are ready. 

For or evening meal I just made the same salad as the night before and we had the same chocolate berry shake for out mid afternoon shake.

We are both really in the thick of dropping the weight. Man going to the bathroom a lot. This is a great sign that we are loosing all the pollution we have absorbed since out last detox. I have been reading a lot on the Clean forum about wanting to loose as much weight as they can. So I am seeing people eat just like a bowl of soup for there lunch. Now the point of the detox is to detox and not just loose weight. Your lunch is supposed to be a balanced meal not just a bowl of soup only. You are will loose sugar and bad fat on this detox but you will loose the pollution first and for most that has built up in your belly, hips, thighs, blood, kidneys etc, etc the most. Keep that in mind Kiddos!;)
