Comfort-type foods are typically loaded with heavy, rich ingredients or excess carbs. But they don’t have to be! Create a 100% vegetable meal that meets the criteria for the transition into your juice-only Reboot or as a meal during your juice + food Reboot. This flavorful meal is also delicious for your transition out of your Reboot where you can add-in whole grains and lean, clean proteins. You can easily freeze leftovers to enjoy after your juicing ends.
Eat the rainbow with this dish! Rich in fiber and antioxidant-based phytonutrients like carotenoids, this meal can also help support a healthy immune and digestive system. Cooked cruciferous vegetables are a great way to enjoy this important family of veggies, known for their phytonutrients that assist in natural detoxification processes in the body. Because they’re cooked, anyone with an underactive thyroid can also enjoy them.
If you’re also cooking for the family, add a protein to this dish to make a complete meal. Here’s a quick guide: per person, add either ½ cup chickpeas, 3 oz chicken, or 2 eggs for protein and ½ cup cooked quinoa or brown rice for starch. Poultry and eggs preferably as local, organic and/or pasture-raised when possible.
