Blogging Marathon# 64: Week 1/ Day 2
Theme: Detox Diet
Dish: Detox Salad with Beets & Arugula Salad
It took me about 1 week to clean up the fridge and pantry of the mega marathon leftovers and then another week the body for the cleanse. It is best to go easy on coffee, dairy and gluten about a week before you start the actual detox diet. Alcohol and cigarettes are a big no-no a week before and during the cleanse.
I was expecting to starve during this detox, but the serving sizes are pretty filling and the fiber in the veggies keep you full for a long time. I didn’t feel hungry for at least 3~4 hours after my lunch. This is also a great salad to serve any time — it’s colorful and very delicious. My beet-phobic husband thought he likes raw grated beets better than cooked ones. So I think I have a convert there. All in all this was a delicious salad that I really enjoyed during the cleanse.
