Refreshing Green Smoothie

On Day 2 of the cleanse, I started with a refreshing green smoothie (see top picture to the left). It contained 1 granny smith apple, 1 cup of loosely packed spinach, 2 inch length of cucumber, 1 tbsp of hemp seeds, 1 tbsp of almond butter, 1 tbsp of coconut oil, 1 cup of water - all of these ingredients were placed in a blender, blended until smooth and then drank! The green smoothie can take a little time to adjust to, but it is a very pleasant and positive way to start the day. For supper, I continued with the simple supper theme (see bottom picture to the left) and had brown rice soba noodles (King Soba brand - they only require 4 minutes to cook!), french lentils, a stir fry (with onions, garlic, shiitake mushrooms, portobello
mushrooms, carrots, cauliflower, and green kale) and an easy tahini sauce (which included 2 cloves of garlic, minced, 2 lemons, freshly squeezed, 1/8 tsp of sea salt, 1 tsp ginger, freshly grated, 2 tbsp of tahini, and 1/2 tsp of sesame oil - all mixed together in a bowl and then mixed with the cooked soba noodles). It was a quick (it took 45 minutes to make) and tasty
