Another detox day done, quite a lazy one, too. Anyway, here’s the food:
I started the day with a glass of lemon water and another glass of fresh grapefruit and blood orange juice. I really love having fresh juice in the morning, it’s so delicious.
In an effort to vary my usual breakfast routine, I made some rice pudding. I let some cooked brown rice soak in soymilk overnight and added raisins, a small chopped apple and a dash of cinnamon in the morning. It was quite good, but the rice didn’t really soak in as much milk as I expected. I also had a brown rice cake with peanut butter, to satisfy my savory tooth.
Lunch was a salad with Sloppy Josephines (I accidentally made a HUGE batch), sweet corn, and guacamole. I also had a slice of buckwheat bread with vegan butter.It was good, but somehow I got hungry again about three hours later. So I had a small bowl of rice with soy sauce and sesame oil. Totally hit the spot! I do love salads, but sometimes I just need a hot dish.
For dinner we had a pan-fried rice cakes (tteok) with carrots, zucchini, and black bean sauce. This is a slightly modified version of one of my favorite dishes, using plain tteok instead of udon noodles. I think I’m very close to perfecting the sauce, so I hope I can post the recipe soon. This dish wasn’t completely gluten-free though, as the bean paste contains some wheat flour. But as I’ve never had any problems with gluten anyway, I should be fine.
Treat of the day was a smoothie with banana, soy milk, coconut cream, and cocoa powder. Not pretty, but very delicious. And yes, the seats of my kitchen chairs are covered with (fake) zebra fur. That’s what you get for living with an interior designer.
On my second detox day I still felt very tired, but I guess that’s because of the lack of coffee. I already feel better today.
