I love french fries and I know they have an affinity for me. Problem is, when I go too deep into my french fry love affair the love triangle begins—my body hears of me cheating and gets royally pissed off. Taste buds are one things—but feeling good trumps all, so my body always wins. My theory: why do they need to be isolated instances? Can’t french fries and my body just get along??
Maybe not, but it doesn’t mean good taste stops there. My goal in life is to eat and cook as much delicious and nutrient rich food as possible without sacrificing the decadence of deliciousness. I came up with a full day of recipes for those of you who have been on the french fry train for too long and want to get off. Eat these foods when you know it’s time for a mini-cleanse or detox. These recipes are a light load, but remember it’s good to let your system take a rest from digesting tons of heavy food. Try at least two days in a row and feel the difference. Your body will thank you and the taste buds won’t even know someone pulled a quick one.
Breakfast: This shake makes me so happy. There is something so satisfying about seeing so much fresh veg go into a blender and come out so shockingly sweet and yummy. This is the perfect snack if you’re hungry and don’t want to binge or just need to start your day off right. My best advice is to prep all of your veg and fruits and have them cut and clean in containers in the fridge. It will cut your time in half and make this shake a breeze.
