Spring Liver Cleanse Diet – Day 11: Tomato red onion basil olive oil recipe
I think my stomach has seriously shrunk. For breakfast just a fruit shake made from a banana, 4 strawberries, handful of blueberries, 1/4 slice of cantaloupe, special Standard Process protein powder, 3 ice cubes and 12 oz of apple juice. It was all I had till lunch. For lunch 1/2 cup of lentils and salad. Dinner, 1/2 cup of lentils, some grilled asparagus and red peppers and salad. Dessert, half of an avocado. 😉
Salads, yes are getting a bit boring but like everything else with this cleanse you just have to get a little creative. Here’s an easy one made with 4 ingredients but has a ton of flavor. You can combine it with some leafy lettuce to add more weight or slice up an avocado for a treat.
Tomato red onion basil olive oil recipe
3-4 vine ripe tomatoes
1/4 of a red onion
5 -6 medium sized basil leaves
Dice the tomatoes, thinly slice the red onion into paper thin slices, roll the basil leaves together and slice into small strips (chiffonade). Mix in a bowl and drizzle a bit of olive oil, crack some coarse black pepper and top with sea salt. Delicious!
