Jumpstart Detox Grocery List
Remember I told you in My Personal Lows and Highs of 2011 that I was working on a new website? Well, one of the main reasons is because I can’t figure out how to do a “print recipe” button! I bet that is so annoying to you guys. Just breath though it…one day I’ll have that button.
I also don’t know how to attach PDFs to a blog post so that you can print, say, a grocery list? Wouldn’t that be helpful?
So, instead, if you want to print this post, you will get all of the other mumbo jumbo on my blog home screen and will likely have to print 27 pages.
Just sayin’, I’ve warned you. If you love trees, you may want to print a “range” of pages.
Ok, now back to business!
By now you have selected a couple recipes and know what ingredients you need for them.
Here is a list of other food/meal/snack ideas. Don’t over buy, you don’t want to throw things away. For example, pick one smoothie recipe and have the same one every day rather than having to get the ingredients for three different kinds. Unless you have the refrigerator space and pocket book!
Breakfast Ideas and Grocery List Items:
Warm Lemon Water and Tea
Non-dairy milk (rice, almond, hemp, or soy) 1 cup
Fruit (I like strawberries, 1/3 frozen banana, and a couple small chunks of pineapple) 1 cup
Spinach 1 handful
Toast with Almond Butter
Non-Dairy Yogurt with fruit and gluten-free granola
almond milk, coconut or soy yogurt
Oatmeal with Topping Ideas (tip: I make big batch of oatmeal and eat during week)
Oatmeal (NOT quick or instant. They make an “official” gluten-free variety that ensures a rogue wheat plant doesn’t grow in the oat field, but if you don’t have a gluten allergy, you are fine with regular)
Fruit (bananas are yummy)
Shredded non-sweatened coconut
Lunch Ideas and Grocery List Items:
Mixed Green Salad with Topping Ideas
Spinach or Lettuce
Raw nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts)
Vegetables (onions, carrots, whatever you like!)
Beets (I love Melissa’s pre-cooked beets and talked about them here)
Dried Fruit (use sparingly)
Rice (yes, I sometime throw in some leftover brown rice to give it some weight!)
Vinaigrette salad dressing of your choice. Be carful of hidden sugar in the Asian dressings.
What soup are you making? Don’t forget the ingredients!
Eat this all week with a salad
What recipe are you making? Did you decide on a quinoa salad or bean salad to eat through out the week?
Eat paired with a green salad or a cup of soup
Snack Ideas and Grocery List Items:
Sugar Snap Peas
Red Bell Pepper Slices
Fresh Pressed Green Juice (if you have a juicer!)
Avocado with sea salt on gluten-free toast
Smoothie (see above)
Glass of almond milk with a pinch of cinnamon
Celery Sticks with almond butter
Dinner Ideas and Grocery List Items:
Any of the above things! I try to keep it simple and eat many of the same things so I’m not cooking a lot. Eat out at a vegan or vegetarian restaurant once to spice things up! Here are some additional ideas…
Roasted Vegetables over Brown Rice
Brown Rice (make a big batch and use it during week)
Sautéd Spinach with Garlic over Rice or Gluten-free pasta
Sautéd Tempeh Lettuce Wraps
Soy Sauce (preferably Braggs Liquid Aminos)
Phew! I’m exhausted. You get the picture, right?
Now get to the store by Sunday and start cooking! If you are purchasing vegan meals, you will still want breakfast and snack items, so don’t forget!
Have an amazing weekend, friends. Talk to you Monday.
