7 Days & 7 Nights of Fruits & Vegetables (No Meat, Dairy, Grain, or Sugar)

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Happy New Year!  We are the cliche of New Years Resolutions around here.  But, really is that a bad thing?!

After 6 months of construction, the holidays, and generally just falling off the bandwagon it’s time to realign the ship.

To start things off with a bang we did a 7 days fruit & vegetable anti-inflammation diet.  Let me tell you, it was worth it. I will admit I even cheated once or twice and it was still worth it.  Your belly will be flatter.  Your pants will fit better.  It’s only 7 days! And, let me tell you adding in protein actually feels indulgent! Ha.

I think there is a misconception that Paleo people only eat meat or at least that we eat a lot of meat.  Actually, we eat way more fruits & vegetables than we do meat.  I have come to find some of the most wonderful tasty recipes from raw and vegan blogs.  You probably wouldn’t guess it, but the Paleo way of life has a lot in common with these two- at least in my life. Anyway, here are some of the very hearty and delicious meals I made during our 7 days of veggies & fruits.  The recipes here are the sole work of the blog owners and credit is given! Not my pretty pictures or recipes, but I am happy to link to them and use them again in the future.


Veggie Chow Mein


Veggie Chow Mein from the Detoxinista



“Cheesy” Broccoli & Quinoa Casserole from the Detoxinista

I used the leftovers and made this into patties that I cooked in the oven.  Red Cabbage makes an excellent “taco shell”. The quinoa patties along with sliced avocado and cilantro made a super yummy taco leftovers lunch.


Pompegranate 3


Butternut Squash and Pomegranate Salad With Tahini Dressing by Dishing Up The Dirt




Raw Bolognese Over Zucchini Noodles by Pure Mamas


Magical White Bean Soup by Shauna Niequist (No Prosciutto)


One of my favorite lunches is seaweed, sliced avocado, and kimchi- yum!


Make Chipotle bowls- beans, lettuce, avacado, red peppers, cilantro, salsa, etc.
