Detox



Breakfast for the whole family in 5 minutes Breakfast for the whole family in 5 minutes

I make fruit salad every morning. Usually, a bowl full of fruit makes my little ones’ bellies full and they don’t need anything else besides drinking a glass of coconut/almond milk (water is good too!) next to it. We used to eat bread, cheese, yogurt, deli meat… I have always restricted boxed cereals, a.k.a. breakfast […]

Homemade corn tortillas and cooking class (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free) Homemade corn tortillas and cooking class (gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free)

I have recently become gluten-free and dairy-free after I found out I’m sensitive to them. In retrospect I now suspect that some time down the road I developed this sensitivity and it made me get all swollen and puffy in my body and face, gain weight, get rashes, wake up with stiff muscles and neck, […]

Detox: What about the kids? Detox: What about the kids?

A reader recently asked (as well as participants in my new cooking classes) how are the kids doing and what are they eating, since I started with the detox diet and all the changes that followed. “I wonder how it goes with your kids? Do they change their diet too? Do you eat separately and […]

Better, dairy-free mashed potatoes Better, dairy-free mashed potatoes

When I found out that I’m sensitive to dairy (it gives me rashes, nose and throat feel like I’m about to catch a cold or a flu) I realized I could not have mashed potatoes. Oy. I felt the connection between eating/drinking dairy and my symptoms only after the 3 weeks of detox. In this […]

Good morning shake Good morning shake

Back in April I sat here and whined to you about not being allowed to drink coffee on the Detox diet. It took me about 3 weeks to get off the physical addiction to coffee, but it took longer than that to stop thinking about coffee day and night and craving it so badly. Of […]

Detox – cosmetics Detox – cosmetics

When I started the Detox diet, almost by chance, I had not idea what impact it is going to have on my life. It happened by a series of consequences when one thing led to another. I thought “OK, I’d give it a try and see what happens”. By the end of the Detox, 3 […]

Detox – 21 days Detox – 21 days

The 21 days of Detox are officially over. How do I feel? I feel great. So much better than what I had felt in the past few months, maybe even more than a year… I can’t remember. I lost about 10 lbs. and I feel much lighter. My skin is cleaner and relaxed. My achy […]

Steamed and roasted cauliflower small tomato 1/2 avocado a few pieces of sautéed chicken breast with cumin and paprika 1/2 cup brown rice pasta salt 1/2 teaspoon oil Pure flavors.

Detox – what to eat? Detox – what to eat?

After 14 days of Detox I find that what I miss the most is…. extra virgin olive oil. (Even more than coffee.) From roasting, sautéing and grilling, I switched to steaming and poaching. I actually found that steamed fish gets much tender and stays moist and delicate when steamed compared to the other cooking methods. […]

Only tea for me Only tea for me

On Saturday we went to a concert. The venue served delicious Asian food, mainly Thai food, I think, and cocktails and… And I had tea. We usually go to dinner before a concert/show/movie. You know, to extend the date night by an hour or two. Leave the house while the kids are awake, return when […]

Detox Detox

I’m sitting here with a cup of tea, herbal, no sugar. Normally, I’d be sitting here with a cup of coffee: 1 level teaspoon coffee, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, only 1/2 cup boiling water, 1/4 cup 2% organic milk. Coffee is a scientific formula to be followed very, very closely. It’s that important! Are you as […]
