Ultimate Reset Phase 3 Recap: Home Stretch!

So, week 3 was somewhat low key and "uneventful" for us, which is  GOOD thing.  The food was good, we felt good, no complaints!  Here is my last recap before our big results!!

The Food

The food this week was really tasty!  We did not eat any grains, though they were optional.  I personally did not miss them, but it's nice to know they were there in case we needed them.  We had fruit every single morning.  Overall, this was a really filling breakfast, but on days when we were extra hungry we made sure to have some green apple or coconut meat on our plates.  Yay for fiber!  My kids also enjoyed watching Mommy bash coconuts open with a hammer, and used the empty shells as helmets for their stuffed animals and our puppy. :)  Lunch, I will admit, got a tad repetitive.  I was getting a little sick of the microgreen salad so I started adding other veggies to it, and the menu also calls for other things to be added on certain days.  For example, we had Moroccan Carrot Salad on our greens one day, and Carrot Seaweed Medley (much better than it sounds) another day.  So that helped mix things up!  Dinners were great!  The only one I didn't care for was the roasted fennel.  Maybe I didn't cook it correctly, but I just wasn't a fan of the taste.  Our highlights were:
  • Asian Cabbage Salad (recipe below!)
  • Curried Cauliflower with Lemon Kale
  • Mediterranean Roasted Beets (I know, gasp!!) and Coconut Collard Greens
  • Asian Stir Fry with Braised Greens
  • Carrot Seaweed Medley ( this is a stir fry of edamame and carrots and other veggies)

How We Are Feeling, and a Bit About Water

Like I said, this week went on a pretty even keel.  Moods were stable, the physical symptoms pretty much went away aside from some soreness occasionally, and we were sleeping great!  Our energy levels were high, and we were enjoying the food AND the fact that we weren't having to stir up a Detox supplement 3 times a day. :)  Hubby and I both had a couple days where we were hungry and craving more food, so we made a couple snacks with our Tropical Strawberry Shakeology and that helped so much!  Drinking TONS of water helped a lot, with hunger and also keeping things regular.  My strategy was not to graze on my water all day, but to drink about 24 oz. every time I had a supplement, so then by the end of the day I was confident that I had enough water.  I am not a huge water drinker so this worked well for me.  For those wondering, your first choice should be distilled water.  Second choice: Tap water filtered through a reliable reverse osmosis or carbon filtration system, not a pitcher filtration unit. Last choice: Bottled water, preferably SmartWater® or Penta.  These should all have Mineralize added.  We bought gallon jugs and kept one in the fridge at all times.  You just add 1/4 tsp of the Mineralize to each one.  You do taste it a little at first but after a few days you don't notice it at all.  Post-Reset, we will continue to drink our water this way, in order to achieve optimal hydration!  :)

Ultimate Reset Asian Cabbage Salad

This is a great salad to take on the go - just make the dressing and add before you eat it.  That way you can also tailor the dressing amount to how much you prefer.  I added a tiny bit of honey to my dressing to make it a little sweeter.  Just don't add too much - 1 tsp max.

Ingredients:

3 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger juice (grate a piece of fresh ginger and squeeze juice into a bowl)
2 Tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos
1/2 head Napa or Savoy Cabbage (or regular green cabbage)
1 carrot, shredded
1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 green onion, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
Himalayan Salt to taste

Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.  Toss with remaining ingredients and let marinate in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.  Serves 1.
