Since the focus of the cleanse is fresh, unprocessed veggies and fruits, it is really essential to precook a lot so that you always have something you can grab when you get hungry. In fact, the only time I get a bit frustrated while doing the cleanse is when I don’t have anything ready to eat when I am hungry. And it’s really my fault.
Since I have been spending more time prepping on the weekend, we are all eating a lot better because most of my prepped food focuses on veggies.
Here is what I prepped for the coming week. Next week my prepped food will look slightly different as some of the things I made for this week are not allowed on the cleanse.
- Veggie bags (carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, and bell pepper slices)
- Grape cups
- Lentil soup with onions, celery, and carrots
- Black rice
- Baked tofu (I sliced firm tofu and coated it with a mixture of rice vinegar, gluten-free soy sauce, and sesame oil and baked it at 375 for 12 minutes on each side.)
- Sautéed onions, mushrooms and ground turkey
- Roasted Brussels sprouts
- Roasted asparagus
Questions: Do you meal plan? Do you prep or precook on the weekend? Do you have any tips you’d like to share? What was the highlight of your weekend?
