DETOX DAY 4

Written by , Posted in Food, Recipes, Zürich

DETOX DAY 4

A Girlfriend asked me yesterday, how much time I spend with cooking ?

I really don’t spend more than 30 minutes a day!!! All is in the organization. The most important thing is to have everything home. Even if you are working, you can prepare everything the day before and than take it with you in the office.It is only a question of motivation.

An other friend said to me: organic food is expensive .First it depends the country you are living. Austria for example is not expensive , Switzerland , organic food is extremely expensive but when you look how little things you need to make a tasty and healthy dish, it is worth to choose organic. I am not so sure that organic has no pesticide treatments , but if there is only one less, it is worth it.

 

BREAKFAST :

Buckwheat Crackers with Avocado, Cilantro,Cumin, little Lemonjuice

and on top small lRed Radish with Sea-salt

DETOX DAY 4

I love this crispy buckwheat cracker.

Avocados are an excellent source of fiber, potassium and vitamins, including vitamins C, K, folate, and B6.  In fact, avocados have the highest concentration of protein and vitamin E of any fruit.  An entire avocado has about 320 calories and 30 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, making it a good source of energy.  It only contains about 4 grams of saturated fat.  Because unsaturated fats are a necessary part of a healthy diet, an avocado is an ideal (and delicious way to get it).  With that one avocado, you get 1/3 of your daily value of vitamin C and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.  That’s a lot of nutrients to pack into such a little piece of fruit!

In the meantime I heated the oven and gave the Sage leafs on baking paper, brushed its with olive oil and for about 6 minutes in the hot oven.

The Babyartichokes could be eaten rare, but I sliced them thin and grilled them in olive oil the same with the Mushrooms. I chopped a lot of parsley and fresh Oregano which I gave over the Veggies.P1080758
