I have used this 3-Day reset meal plan for years (but actually you can even do it just one or two days and still see a benefit). It is the perfect way to hit the reset button after the holidays or a vacation and always seems to recalibrate my cravings and reaffirm mindful food choices.
Start with a green smoothie for breakfast. I personally like to start most days with a green smoothie to front load the day with extra veggies and anti-inflammatory herbs (ginger and turmeric root). Then have a salad for lunch and soup for dinner. Sip on water and herbal tea throughout the day. Prepare to take a pause from intense exercise, and simply rest.
Green smoothie (breakfast):
Dandelion greens (feel free to use spinach, kale or any other green if dandelion greens aren’t available)
Ginger root (about a thumbnail size)
Turmeric root (about a thumbnail size)
Organic red delicious apple
*blend and sip
Beet salad (lunch):
Walnuts (or sesame seeds as pictured)
Balsamic dressing (blend olive oil, balsamic vinegar, clove garlic, salt and pepper)
Vegetable soup (dinner):
Homemade vegetable broth
Garlic, salt and pepper
Top with spinach
