Clean Detox Day 7: Mexican Day

Clean detox day 8

Breakfast: Smoothie with 100g nectarine, 60g mango, 60g avocado, 80ml avocado, 1 date and a handful of mint. Highly enjoyable.

Lunch: Curried courgette soup – leftovers from Day 2

Dinner: Refried black beans, roast butternut squash, lime and cilantro coleslaw, fruit and avocado salsa

Another Airbnb dinner and the request was Mexican, so I made Rachel’s awesome frijoles negros to go with roast butternut squash and feta mole enchiladas (adapted from Rachel’s vegetarian tamales) along with the usual Mexican rice, salsas, guacamole, and corn chips. Really the only things off the radar were the corn tortillas and rice; I made a fruit salsa so that I could partake in some tomato-less salsa action (made with nectarine, mango, pomegranate, lime, coriander, avocado, salt and pepper). All in all, a great dinner and really nice conversation with my Aussie guests. That isn’t to say I wasn’t a little envious of their dinner…

    I have to say your detox food looks so delicious! I could eat all of it (apart from the smoothies)! Your dinner sounded so good, love the sound of cilantro and lime coleslaw. I am so impressed with your meal, whenever Ive done detoxes its been more like a punishment!

      Hi Jayne – thanks for the comment! Yes I’m finding this detox surprisingly easy. I do miss my solid meals but hey, I can work around that for a few weeks. And it means I can make the most of the one solid meal that I do have. I can totally see myself carrying on many aspects of the detox beyond the detox – I feel great and most importantly, I don’t feel deprived. I just need to come up with a gluten-free, sugar-free mole sauce for my pretend tacos and I’ll be golden. 🙂
