40 Clove Chicken

This is my favorite recipe for making a delicious whole chicken.  If you bake it on Sunday you have meat to use for various dishes throughout the week!

Keylime Berry Sunrise!

 

This delicious and satisfying Berries, Fruit, with Keylime Creme.  On the Whole30 you cannot have sugar in any form including substitutes.  But you are allowed Dates! 

Keylime Creme Recipe:  

 

1C of soaked Cashews (min 2 hours)

1/2 C Coconut Water (Fresh is best or buy NOT From Concentrate)

2 Limes (Squeeze 1 1/2 Limes and add 1/2 whole with skin)

4 Medjool Dates (Pitted)

 

In High Speed Blender (Vitamix, Blendtech, Ninja, Nutribullet, etc.) or Food Processor add all the above ingredients (make sure to add the squeezed juice of 1 1/2 of your limes and then put the last 1/2 into the blender).  

 

Place organic fresh or thawed frozen berries in bowl, add bananas or desired fruit and add your Keylime Creme to the top. Enjoy its so refreshing!  The Keylime Creme gives you protein and causes you to feel full fast!  This helps you not to overeat--so don't grab two or three more bowls just because it is so delicious.  When your full stop. You can have more later! 

40 Clove Chicken Recipe

1 Large (8lbs) Organic Chicken

40 Cloves of Garlic (I like to buy the already peeled garlic)

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

2 TBSP Turmeric (Curcumin)

1-2 TSP Cayenne Pepper (depending on your "spicy" level)

2 TSP Grey Sea Salt

Place all 20 cloves of garlic inside the chicken and layer twenty cloves on the bottom of the pan.  Mix together the coconut oil (preferably solid but you can use melted as well), Turmeric, Cayenne Pepper and Sea Salt.  Spread mixture all over the Chicken.  Preheat oven at 375 and then Place chicken in oven for 30 minutes.  Remove and flip the bird over so legs are facing up. Bake chicken for 20 minutes per pound.  If you have a thermometer, the meat is done when it reads 165 and the outside is nice and crisp.  If you do not have a thermometer, check the chicken after calculated time by cutting into the breast - if still pink then bake a few more minutes.   When finished transfer to your favorite serving dish and enjoy!  Use leftovers for various dishes throughout the week! 

Serve with Salad and favorite grilled or sautéed vegetables! On carb loading days you can even have a sweet potato! 

Burrito Bowl Recipe:

 

What sets this bowl apart from a restaurant bowl is the Cauliflower Rice.  Here's how you make it:

Saute Onion for a couple minutes, add garlic and sauce for a few seconds and then add the Cauliflower and Sauce for 4-5 minutes.

2 Cups of Shredded Chicken or Beef

Coconut Cashew Granola

Granola is nutritious and Keto friendly when home made.  Store bought is normally high in sugars and expensive.  It's also a great grab and go meal.  Use it with out without milk, for a meal or a snack.  But beware - it's packed with calories so don't eat it all in one sitting! One batch can last a whole week at least! 

RegenerateMeNow Menu Ideas & Recipes 

 

Healing your gut and losing weight does not require a diet but a ifestle change. A lifestyle change does not mean starvation or denial.  It means eating cleaner and wiser.  It is knowing what to eat, when to eat, and how to eat. The why and the where are a part of the whole story too!  

 

I believe the more whole food plant based you eat the healthier and more satieted you are continuously.  Nothing makes our energy more depleted and our tummies ravaged with hunger than the fake foods that have been processed using additives such as corn syrup or chemicals, or modiefied to ensure they are not destroyed by chemicals. The problem is that we were not created nor have we evolved to eat "fake foods."  Science is now supporting hippocrates' statement "let food be thy medicine."  What we are eating today, for the most part, is not food.  And our bodies are attacking it causing all kinds of immune diseases, increased autism, mental disorders, ADD and ADHD, Arthritis and joint pain & problems, bone deterioration, and the like, including cancer and the most obvious problem: Obesity.  

 

The good news is that a lifestyle change is neither difficult nor expensive.  All it requires from you is a readiness and a plan.  So on this page we give you some menu ideas and recipes.

First, I recommend my course Fasting and Your Gut Health.  The course teaches you the three main components to gut health and weight loss.  To learn more go to www.fastingandyourhealth.com. 

Secondly, I always recommend anyone who is unsure of what foods to take our or add to follow the Whole 30 guidlines. Basically, you cut out all sugar, grains, dairy, and legumes.  To read more on the Whole 30 guidelines or invest in the plan - go to www.https://whole30.com. For a vegan Whole30 Shopping List click here. 

Thirdly,  I recommend a menu planner like RealPlans.com. You tell the app what which days you want to cook, the foods you do or don't want to eat, and it gives your a menu, the shopping list and the recipes!  What more can you ask for.  Set it for a Whole 30 or Keto diet too!    

Here is a sample menu:
