I found this recipe in an email, tried it, and LOVED IT!
-1 small sweet potato for noodles/spoodles (grated veggies works fine).
-1 bowl of finely chopped or shredded raw vegetables. I use broccoli, spinach, cabbage and carrots.
-1 slice of pineapple (chopped).
-Cooked chicken. I typically use one breast or 2 thighs per mason jar.
-1 chopped green onion.
-2 tablespoons of freshly minced cilantro. Use can use any herb or seasoning you like.
-1good, high quality vegetable or chicken stock cube.
-1 teaspoon of oil.
-2 tablespoons of coconut aminos or soy sauce.
-1/4 teaspoon of chili flakes. (optional)
-½ teaspoon of minced garlic or garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon of grated ginger.
-1 full teaspoon of honey (optional).
Peel your sweet potato and either spiral cut or finely grate them. Steam or par boil the potato for about 5 minutes to soften it up. You want it just firm to the bite. Allow the potato to cool before adding it to the mason jar(or pyrex dish with lid).Mix together the broth seasoning to form a paste. Adding the oil brings it together nicely. Do this in a small bowl with a small spoon to break down the stock cube.Chop your cooked chicken (seasoned how you like).Pack cooked noodles into the bottom of the jar. Spoon the cold broth paste on top, not the boiling water or bone broth. Next, add the finely chopped raw vegetables, chicken, onion and cilantro.You can now store this in the fridge to grab and go when you’re ready. To cook, just open the jar and pour in boiling water or your hot bone broth. Put the lid on and let it sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip open the jar and enjoy!
Drink 2L of water per day, PLUS an additional 500ml for every 15 min of intense exercise you complete (aka. CROSSFIT!)
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1 cup of chopped pecans
1/4 cup of butter, margarine or oil (I used avocado oil)
4-5 medium sized yams(cut into rounds)
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350. Mix sugar, pecans and melted butter together. Cover and put aside.
Grease your pan (13×9 works best). Boil pot of water, add chopped yams until very soft, about 12 minutes. Drain and keep in collider until almost cooled. Either beat in a mixer or use a potato masher. I’m lazy so I used a mixer hehe. Add your eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice and salt and mix well. Make sure it’s not chunky!
Put into pan, pecan mixture on top and bake for about 45 minutes or until bubbling on top. Let sit for 10 minutes them devour 🙂
Inspired from our introduction warm up yesterday…. Thanks Rob!

Hey Folks! Myself and a few others are about to embark on a 12 day Wild Rose Cleanse. I thought I would put it out there incase anyway else wanted to join in – the bigger the support group, the better! Post to comments if you’d care to join. I’m starting it on Monday, June 3.
Here is the gist of it:
The supplements include taking 12 pills a day, and some drops. You can pick this package up (on sale right now) at Charlie Browns for $35, or any other health food store.
Just for 12 days you should avoid meats (except fish), all flours made from grain, sugars, dairy products, fermented items such as soy sauce and wine, and alcohol.
Although you can eat fish, do not eat shellfish while on this cleanse. Also avoid peanuts, mushrooms and grapes. Coffee is on the acceptable list (although I personally don’t recommend it), however you can’t have cream or sugar with it.
This may seem like a hard diet to follow, but there are many delicious alternatives you can still eat. Raw and cooked vegetables, fish (except no shellfish), fruits (no tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, pineapple, etc.), some nuts (those lower in fat content like almonds).
