AdvoCare Herbal (Group) Cleanse / Day 4

on May 14, 2015

Ok, chances are by now you’ve suffered w/ some kind of detox side effect. Maybe it’s a headache or maybe your pants are falling off HaHa
Any time you make dietary changes there’s a possibility of suffering from a mild, somewhat nagging headache. Well I’m here to tell you this too shall pass! Don’t give up and go back to the sugar, that’s what got you here in the first place. Our bodies have grown accustomed to sugar and an over abundance of caffeine so taking it away we’re going through a type of withdrawal affect. Just stick to the plan! Drink plenty of water to help flush those toxins out and get plenty of rest~

May 14th: Day 4
It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn—oh wait HaHa
We are doing things a lil’ differently today. If you’ve been mixing your Spark and Fiber pack together this will be the first time you’ve OFFICIALLY had a Spark (and you will be in love)! There’s NO fiber today AND we’re adding in those cute lil’ Probiotic Pills (yeah clap clap clap). Years of sugar abuse and over-use of OTCs w/ rounds of antibiotics have ruined our intestinal/gut health. These lil’ babies are going to put the good bacteria we so greatly need BACK IN to help support intestinal health and function.

Upon waking drink a Spark (1 scoop or pkg per 8 oz of water—I actually do ⅔ scoop w/ 12 oz) with your Probiotic Restore Ultra pill pack (optional 3 Catalyst)
Within 30 minutes YOU NEED TO EAT!

BREAKFAST: Grain free pumpkin pancakes
HOLD UP THE TRAIN! DON’T I TELL YA’LL NEVER LEAVE HOME W/O YOUR PACKED GOODIES (b/c something always happens when you do—welp, it did!) U ARE ABOUT TO READ THE SCHEDULED MEAL PLAN WHEN IN FACT SNACKS WERE ALMONDS (both) AND BARK THIN (just 1 piece, 2nd snack) AND LUNCH WAS CHICK-FILA MARKET FRESH SALAD (with apples, strawberries, blueberries and mixed nuts, took off the bleu cheese)
SNACK: Apple Pie Smoothie
LUNCH: Spinach salad with strawberries and (left-over) pork loin
SNACK: Tuna salad (½-⅔ cup serving) w/ handful of grapes
DINNER: Burgers (w/ no cheese but all the other toppings you love)! Homemade potato (or kale) chips and side of watermelon (w/ 4 OmegaPlex—you can always split these up between 2 meals if that’s easier for you)

And you thought this process was going to be boring—you thought “but I won’t be able to NOT have burgers and pizza for 10 whole days” I mean you’ve been living off that stuff at least once a week for years right? This plan is not about depriving yourself of those things you love, it’s about making the better choices 😉

Sometimes ya just gotta have pancakes right? My kids are addicted to them. But they can’t be those boxed kind and we’re still on a cleanse so there’s no dairy….hmmmm what can we use?

GRAIN FREE PUMPKIN PANCAKES:
2 eggs
¼ cup pumpkin puree
⅛ tsp. cinnamon
Coconut oil for the pan
Raw honey, SF maple syrup, coconut whip or fruit butter for serving
Warm a cast iron pan over medium high heat.
Whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon.
Add about a tablespoon of coconut oil to the hot pan and swirl to cover the bottom of the pan.
Use about two scant tablespoons of batter for each pancake. They flip best when the pancakes are small.
Cook until golden on the bottom and slightly opaque in the center and around the edges.
Flip, brown on the other side, and serve.
Makes about 8 small pancakes, for 1 large serving or 2 medium servings.

APPLE PIE SMOOTHIE:
1 apple (any kind – I used pink lady)
1/2 small banana
2 dates
1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp pecans
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
A few ice cubes
Blend until smooth!

TUNA SALAD: Sometimes I reallllly want chicken salad but that takes much longer to cook so I’ll whoop up some quick tuna salad THE SAME WAY.
1 cup of tuna (shredded tuna steak or drained/rinsed can tuna)
½ avocado (mashed)
Chopped (fine) onion and celery (good way to hide celery I don’t like)
Squeeze of lemon juice (keeps avocado from browning)
Salt/pepper to taste (salt really is not needed!)

BURGERS: I use turkey but you can use beef, season as you normally would! Grill patties, fry them (coconut oil) or even bake them in the oven. The part you have to be careful about is the BUN but never fear, I’ve got you covered on a delicious and EZ replacement WhoopWhoop (if you’re not into making these gluten-free buns you can have whole wheat buns but not anything that says “enriched flour”) For potato chips, slice the potato as thin as possible drizzle w/ EVOO sprinkle salt/pepper then bake 350 until they start to turn slightly brown (do NOT eat a whole potatoes worth, just a small handful…if you can’t be trusted then you should definitely make the kale chips) 😉

GF bun (serves 4-6 depending on size)
2 cups almond flour
3/4 cups arrowroot flour (or cornstarch)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup DAIRY FREE yogurt (this can purchased in most local groceries)
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted (real) butter or coconut oil
Combine all dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed. In a small bowl whisk eggs and yogurt. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix well. Scoop batter onto parchment lined pan. 350 for 15 minutes. Use for buns, sandwiches or pizza crust!
The munchies hit me around 8:45 tonight (normally this is the time I’m relaxing in the tub but tonight was early shower) so what did I do? Glass of water 🙂 I considered taking 3 Catalyst but then thought “I don’t have a sweet tooth (surprise surprise surprise) and I really don’t think I’m hungry” soooo then I brushed my teeth and WENT TO BED (woohoo fake desire take that punch to the gut)

burgerI ain’t gonna lie it’s a delicious burger!!!!!

At bedtime be sure to take your “Herbal Cleanse Pill Pack” with some water.
