Season for Detox – Day 10

Ten days -  I can’t believe it.  Ten whole days of doing this detox.  I’ve done several detoxs of seven days, even fasted for 10 days (which isn’t a great thing for general health purposes depending on how it’s done).  But this is the longest detox experience I’ve had with raw/vegan foods.

I don’t even feel like I’m on a detox except I’m being so conscious about what I eat each day.  I really thought I was good at knowing how to eat both well and consciously each day.  But waking up trying to figure out what new dish to prepare has been a real change, particular when it comes to eating raw. 

Today I had a treat.  My husband was a taster for a new dish.  I was determined to make a raw veggie Phad Thai.   I couldn’t get the flavor quite right from the recipe so I had to keep adding flavors.  One problem with the raw recipes is that they are a bit bland for my pallet. 

The basic recipe came from Living on Live Foods by Alissa Cohen.  I spiraled two summer squashes to make the “noodles.”  Then added in 4 cups of mung beans.  The sauce was based on almond butter.  I didn’t have raw almond butter but did find some roasted almond butter in the pantry so I used that.  I mixed it with fresh squeezed orange juice and some ginger.  I found the sauce a bit bland and realized it needed some “heat” so I put in two chili’s. That helped a lot.  Plus, I added additional chopped ginger, onions, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cilantro.  Well, my husband agreed to taste it and he really enjoyed it.  That was fabulous.  I have a feeling it will be even better tomorrow after the flavors have had a chance to marinate.  Yum!


Eating raw, whole foods can quickly make a difference in your life and you don’t even have to go 100% raw to get the benefits. In fact, by simply replacing some cooked foods in your diet with more raw foods you can start feeling better very quickly
