I completed my detox two days ago, but I haven’t had time to post the final day’s photos until now. I am feeling so vibrant after eating this way for only one week that I have decided to continue eating living foods indefinitely, at least for the summer. Although I’m still cooking meals for Zander, he is enjoying sampling everything I eat, and it warms my heart to see his tiny little hands shoveling dehydrated kale into his mouth as fast as he can chew it up and swallow it. His favorite flavor of kale chips so far has a healthy dose of habanero pepper, which came as a real surprise to me, but I’m so glad that he likes it! Anyhow, below are the meals from my final day of the official 118 Degrees detox.
BREAKFAST: Tangerine bliss bar. Delicious, but I wish that I had eaten this one sooner, as it looked so much tastier when it was fresh (on the day I picked it up from the restaurant). Like the avocado breakfast bar from Day 6, this was not really a bar, but had a tasty graham-crackery crust mixture beneath the fruit.
LUNCH: Rolled chard bites. This was one of my favorite meals by far. Packed with beets, carrots, and cucumbers in a super-tasty sauce, the rolled chard made a perfect wrap and did not get all soggy and gross like some of the dehydrated wraps in previous meals. Yum!
DINNER: Heirloom tomato stack. Another very tasty dish, and a great way to finish off my 1-week detox from 118 Degrees! I especially liked the flavorful capers on top of the stacked tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, and carrots.
DESSERT: I did not receive a dessert in my kit for Day 7 (perhaps this is related to the double-breakfast glitch on Day 5?), so I took matters into my own hands and discovered Cashewtopia at my local Whole Foods. Honestly, I can see no reason to ever eat any other type of vegan “ice cream” again. These are absolutely mind-blowing. I still cannot get over the fact that in addition to being vegan, they are raw! Yes, the price tag was a little bit daunting, and I suspect availability is an issue, as well, but if you can find these, I would highly recommend taking (at least) one home with you. Whether you are an omnivore, vegetarian, cooked-food vegan, or eat only living foods, I don’t think you will regret it. 🙂
