21 Day Cleanse Shopping & Eating Ideas

Pick up some humus and flax crackers, walnuts, steel cut oats, sweet potato, veggies, soy milk, peppers, mixed grain hot cereals, rice cakes, apple butter, rice bread,  yams, grains like brown rice, quinia, almonds, cashews, soy nuts, seeds like sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, almond butter tahini , beans, black beans, lentils, chickpeas, lima beans, black eyed peas, tofu, pasta sauce, mushrooms, herbal teas, sweeteners like agave nectar, garlic, sea salt, flours to cook or bake with, bean, pea, soy, potato, buckwheat, rice, popcorn, corn chips, salsa, guacamole, there is lots to eat you just have to get use to thinking differently about what a meal should consist of.  A salad with humus, guacamole, and rice crackers or corn chips is a meal!!  Today I'm going to toast some rice bread top it with avocado and tomato it's delicious and if you have a salad with it it's a meal.   Keep your diet simple and don't worry so much about plating your food to resemble a typical meal.  Think 5 or 6 small meals through the day, with some snacks, you won't be hungry.  Get some organic peanut butter spread that on a rice cake and top it with apple butter it's really good and will fill you up.
