AdvoCare Day 8 Cleanse & Digestive Blend

on March 16, 2014

OH MERCY~  I didn’t even realize I skipped Day 7 (TODAY) all together –Whoopsie–  Sorry about that!  So how have you managed?  Tell me what you’re eating, what are you doing for exercise, how much water are you drinking?  I sure hope you’re NOT skipping meals!!  OR stepping on the scales!  TONIGHT/SUN should be your last herbal cleanse pill pack (unless of course you’ve forgotten one some where along the way, in which case you’ll need to take tomorrow night)

Step 1:  Spark + 8 oz w/ Probiotics (3/catalyst)
Step 2:  Fiber + 8 oz (could combine steps 1 & 2)
Step 3: W/n 30 mins EAT

Breakfast:  Strawberry Shortcake in a Mug – single serve (@chocoloatecoveredkatie)
**This is S meal;  GF/DF/EF/SF
Snack:  Nuts & cranberries
**This is S snack:  GF/DF/EF

Dinner:  Chicken Nuggets(@ourpaleolife) w/ honey mustard.  Serve w/ brown rice topped w/ organic mixed veggies
**This is S or E depending on amount of brown rice (1/4c grains for S, 3/4c grains for E);  GF/DF/EF/SF

Strawberry Shortcake in a Mug (for 1):
■3 tbsp flour (almond flour, wheat flour or all-purpose GF like me)
■1/4 tsp baking powder
■heaping 1/16 tsp salt
■1 or 2 tbsp chopped strawberries
■1/2 tsp vanilla extract
■1 tbsp coconut oil (butter or applesauce work too.)
■1 tbsp plus 1 tsp milk of choice (I use almond)
■1 tbsp sugar or 1 packet stevia (optional but most people will want some sweetener)
Preheat oven to 330 degrees. Mix dry, then add wet. Mix until just combined (don’t overmix), and bake for 17 minutes or so. (Baking time will vary, depending on the flour and oil/applesauce you use.) Or, you can cook it in the microwave, in a mug or small dish.

Paleo Chicken Nuggets:
•3 Chicken Breasts, boneless/skinless
•½ cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
•¼ cup Arrowroot Starch (could use potato or starch but NOT THM approved)
•1 tsp Sea Salt
•½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
•½ tsp Chili Powder
•Coconut Oil, for cooking
1.Place the shredded coconut, arrowroot starch, salt, cinnamon, and chile powder in a gallon-size zip-top bag or large storage container with a tight-fitting lid. The plastic bag method is the least messy, so I highly suggest that. Seal it and give it a good shake to mix everything together. Set aside.
2.Using kitchen shears, trim any fat off the chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces.
3.Place all chicken pieces in the plastic bag, seal, and start shaking until all chicken pieces are coated. Set aside.
4.Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough coconut oil to have a thin layer on the bottom, about a tablespoon or two, depending on your skillet size.
5.Using a slotted spoon, take chicken out of the bag and place in the skillet. Don’t cook it all at once, add just enough so the pieces aren’t touching. It takes me about 3-4 batches to cook them all.
6.Cook about 2-3 minutes, when the chicken is turning opaque and white about halfway up the sides. This may take longer depending on how big you cut them.
7.Using a wooden spatula, gently scrape/scoop the chicken to flip them over and continue cooking until they are cooked all the way through.
8.Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
9.Repeat steps 5-8 until all chicken is cooked. Serve with Honey Mustard Sauce

Honey Mustard Sauce:
•2 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
•2 Tbsp Honey
•½ Tbsp Fresh-Squeezed Lemon Juice
1.Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl, whisking with a fork until smooth.
2.Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld together.
3.Keep stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Monday is my strength & flexibility class whoop whoop.  I ain’t gonna lie, it’s tough but it’s so worth it~

low impact

PS….I had the opportunity today to use a “new” (to me) oil, Digestive Blend.  My son woke w/ intestinal discomfort this morning that just just wouldn’t go away (I’m a lil’ slow on the take remembering to USE THE OILS!).  By this afternoon it was still there.  That’s when it hit me (bricks falling on the head..duh)…I pulled out this new blend (for us), rubbed four drops (only because it came out so fast) on his abdominal area and I kid you not, within 5-6 minutes he was FINE!!!  That there is some gooood stuff 😉  Contact me for brand specifics and website details.

Someone asked me where they can get gluten free flours…I make my own almond flour and flaxseed meal/flour but I’ve found the best prices at Vitacost Going through that link will give you $10 OFF YOUR FIRST $30 PURCHASE 😉
