We recommend that you eat as many easy to digest foods as possible during your Juice Til Dinner Cleanse. Water containing vegetables are best. They help to push the waste up and out of the cells and intestines. Here are a few simple recipes to help you with your cleanse!

 

Favorite Salad

1 head Romaine, chopped
1/2 bunch lacinato kale handful cherry tomatoes
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 green onions, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon
Sprinkle of Herbs de Provence

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and toss until combined. Serves 1-2

 

Favorite Omelette

4 organic eggs
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup chopped onion and or mushrooms just a little “pat” of butter
salt and pepper
sprinkle of shredded raw goat cheese

These vegetables can easily be substituted with you own favorites as well. I like to saute or steam the veggies before hand to soften them up. You can also minced the vegetables up a bit depending on your preference. Crack eggs into a large bowl and whisked together with a fork until blended (approx 10-20 sec). Melt the better in a medium size frying pan on medium heat. Mix the vegetables in with the whipped egg mixture. Once the butter is melted slowly add the egg and vegetables into the pan. Cook on medium until the mixture is almost all solid. With a spatula carefully fold the omelette in half. Continue to cook flipping occasionally until it is cooked through.

Sprinkle with raw goat cheese and serve with your favorite hot sauce Serves 1-2

 

Easy Grilled Chicken

1-2 organic chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt or minced garlic

Combine spices in a medium size bowl. Thoroughly wash chicken in cold water and add to the bowl with the spice mixture. Mix together with a fork or tongs until both sides are coated. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Grill both sides for approximately 4-5 minutes or until cooked through. I like to cut the thickest part of the chicken open with a knife to ensure it is cooked through. Chicken should have an internal cooking temperature of 170 degrees.

Serve with a slice of lemon or chop it into strips and add it to your favorite salad. Serves 1-2

 

Spaghetti Squash and Marinara

1 spaghetti squash
1 cup pasta sauce such as Muir Glen, Seeds of Change, or any other natural marinara
sauce you enjoy. Look for organic, high quality sauces with little or no sugar (never refined sugar) and oil (only olive oil) listed as one of the last ingredients.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Slice halved squash into quarters, place in a baking dish and cover with foil. Bake until soft (you should be able to easily pierce with a fork). Heat the marinara sauce on the stove.

Spoon heated marinara sauce over the squash and serve. Serves 1-2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat eggplant or sweet potato with butter, salt and pepper in a baking dish. Bake until desired consistency.
