Living Foods Detox – Day 3

BREAKFAST: Pineapple passion “yogurt.” For some reason, this dish really made my stomach turn, and I wound up throwing it away entirely uneaten. I really hate wasting food, so this made me feel sad. I found myself overwhelmed by what seemed to be sort of a gritty coconut oil taste, which in all fairness may have gone away if I had left the yogurt out of the fridge for longer and allowed it to reach room temperature. Alas, I will never know. Instead, Zander and I devoured a couple of ripe mangoes and a banana for breakfast.

LUNCH: Rojo tacos. Due to the detox symptoms I mentioned in my Day 2 posting, I had a tough time getting this meal down, but I managed to do so–all except for the (zucchini flax?) wrap. It was simply too soggy, and I couldn’t deal with it, so I left it on my plate. The other veggies–beets, carrots, zucchini, corn, pumpkin seeds, and mixed greens–were fresh and delicious, and I liked the spicy sauce, which added a nice kick to the meal.

DINNER: Greek flatbread. ENOUGH with the soggy “breads” already! I feel terrible wasting these, but they are all going into the garbage. Just give me a salad instead. This one was particularly doughy-tasting (see photo below), and I simply couldn’t stomach it. However, the other ingredients were delicious. I loved the thin layer of tahini cheese paired with the sweet red peppery sauce that I poured on top of the olives, tomatoes, and mixed greens. Yum!

DESSERT: Strawberry bar. This name simply doesn’t do the dessert justice–it was absolutely heavenly. There was a light and pleasant hint of coconut to the creamy strawberry topping, and the “crust” was truly reminiscent of a graham cracker crust. Outstanding!!! I don’t know how they did this, but it was fantastic.
