Spring Liver Cleanse – Day 4 :
Roasted Butternut Squash with Garlic Ginger Wilted Spinach Recipe
Day 4 of the Standard Process Liver Cleanse. Honestly I really thought this would be a much more excrutiating diet than it has turned out to be (so far). On the down side, it’s really tough to see your coworkers eating bagels (no grain allowed), drinking coffee (no caffeine allowed), eating burgers (no meat allowed), or drinking wine (no alcohol allowed). On the upside, I feel a bit more alert, probably lost about 3 lbs already, and sleep better. (FYI/TMI: thanks to the all vegan diet without grains, and all of the fruit and vegetables (fiber), I pretty much go to the bathroom many many times per day).

What to eat? Well, you just have to get a little creative. We made this easy recipe with 7 ingredients.
Garlic (3 cloves minced)
Ginger (1/2 teaspoon minced)
Sea Salt / Coarse Ground Pepper
Slice butternut squash into 2 lengwise and clean out the seeds. Apply a light layer of olive oil and then sprinkle sea salt and coarse ground pepper. Place squash into a baking pan filled with one inch of water. Place in oven and cook at 350F for one hour or until golden brown. At this point, remove the butternut squash from the oven and enjoy with a spoon. OR dice the butternut squash and stir fry with garlic ginger, olive oil and spinach. It’s awesome and easy!
I honestly never thought I could go without meat for 4 days but here I am writing this blog post, but I do miss grains however. God how I would love to just have a toasted bagel with butter and honey right now!
