Advocare Herbal Cleanse – Day #10 & Intro “Lean in 13”

on April 23, 2013

WOW~ I’ve been looking over the “Lean in 13” plan and I’m getting both excited and extremely nervous as it is very detailed. I discovered just today that I’m missing one key product to start this program so looks like my start time will be delayed..but yeah, because it will give me more time to prepare. PREPARATION IS MAJOR KEY TO SUCCESS!

TOMORROW IS DAY 10 OF HERBAL CLEANSE WAHOOOOOO…of course I didn’t mind it so much this go round having found a fabulous way to down the fiber drink, it’s like having an extra large Spark 1st thing in the morning! I have NOT cheated..well, I did have fajitas w/out the shell Sunday, OH and I did have a poppy-seed muffin Sunday night..ok, so I did cheat A LIL’! I also HAVE NOT stepped on the scales and I plan not to do so until my doctor’s appointment/check-up on day 11. I wanna be surprised!

#1 Spark w/ Probiotic Pill Packs
#2 Fiber
#3 Eat
#4 Take 4 OmegaPlex w/ dinner

BREAKFAST: Grapefruit quinoa (grapefruit is fabulous for losing weight)
SNACK: Tuna salad cucumber rolls
LUNCH: Spinach salad
SNACK: Apple walnut salad
DINNER: Kale, Turkey & Black bean wraps

ALL of the following recipes were compiled from (give credit where credit is due)
Grapefruit Quinoa:
•1 pink grapefruit
•1/4 cup (43g) uncooked quinoa
•1/2 cup water
•Pinch of kosher salt
•1 tbsp honey plus some for drizzling
•5g roasted sunflower seed kernels
Peel the grapefruit, separate the sections and chop, removing any seeds.
Put the quinoa, water, salt and grapefruit in a small pot with about a tablespoon of honey. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 1-2 minutes while stirring. Lower to a simmer and cover. Continue to cook for 15 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed. There still was a bit too much moisture, so after the 15 minutes I raised the temperature to medium and brought it back up to a boil until it reached more of a porridge or oatmeal consistency. Pour it into a bowl, drizzle it with a little honey and top with sunflower seeds for a fun, salty crunch.

Tuna Salad Cucumber Rolls: (25g protein / 17 carbs / 9 sugars)
•1 English Cucumber
•1 Carrot cut into thin strips
•1 5oz can of Tuna Drained
•1 tbsp Fat Free Greek Yogurt (no more than this is it is ok during cleanse)
•1 tsp lemon juice
•punch of sea salt and black pepper
•Soy Sauce (low sodium) mixed with Wasabi for Dipping OPTIONAL (I don’t dip)
With a large knife cut thin strips of cucumber longwise. Mix the drained tuna, yogurt, lemon juice, salt and pepper. To make the roll add a tablespoon of the tuna salad on on end of a cucumber strop and top with a few thin carrot slices. Simply roll up and enjoy..hold together w/ toothpick if not eating right away.

Spinach Salad w/ Orange:
•2 tsp of olive oil
• 1 Small Mandarin Orange (Cutie) – OPTIONAL I don’t personally like fruit in salad
• Pinch of Kosher Salt
• 1 Bag of Spinach
• 30g Dried Cranberries
• 30g of Chopped Walnuts
Zest the orange then peel, separate the sections and chop.
Add the zest, oil, orange segments and a pinch of salt to a bowl and whisk everything together. Make sure to smash the orange a bit squeezing out the juice
Toss the spinach with the orange oil mixture until all the leaves glisten a bit with the dressing. Add the rest of ingredients and toss again.

Apple Walnut Salad:
•1/2 of a large apple (you could use a small)
•7g of chopped walnuts
•1/2 tbsp (5g) honey
•Dash of cinnamon
•Dash of nutmeg
Cube apple and add to walnuts. Added a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzle the honey on top.

Kale, Turkey & Black Bean Wrap:
•1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
•1/2 of a Sweet Onion chopped
•1 Jalapeno Pepper Diced
•About 1 and 1/2 cups of chopped Kale (100g)
•1 Medium Sweet Pepper chopped small
•1 15oz can of black beans drained and rinsed
•1 tbsp Chili Powder
•1 tbsp dried Cumin
•Pinch of Kosher Salt
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, spray with non-stick spray and brown the turkey with onion. Dice the Jalapeno and add it to the browning meat. Leave in the seeds and ribs if you’d like a bit more heat. Chop the kale small. Add the chopped kale to the skillet with a pinch of salt and stir all together. Add in the diced pepper, black beans and spices. Cook for a few more minutes allowing all the flavors to merge and the pepper to soften just a little bit. Lower to a simmer to keep warm until ready to use. Note: if you notice the meat starting to dry out, just add a tablespoon or 2 of salsa. Moistens things right up!
Use in whole wheat flat-out wraps or homemade tortillas.
