Q and I are going vegetarian for the month of July. I didn’t mention that? Well, we are. We like meat, a lot. (Even Jesus ate meat.) BUT, our livers need a break. That’s right, liver. We haven’t started a formal detox yet, I’m still reading the book, but for now we are off meat.
Broccoli and Kale Pasta
- Whole wheat pasta
- Broccoli Crown
- Kale – 4 Stems
- Green Tea
- Olive Oil
- Basil Pesto
- Various Spices
Boil the water. Steep the green tea (it adds antioxidants to your pasta) for five minutes. Add the pasta as directed. Add the kale and broccoli for the last 3 minutes. Drain. Drizzle olive oil, add pesto, add tomato slices, and sprinkle with your desired spices. (We used Italian seasonings, garlic, salt, and pepper.)
It was SUPER tasty!
We enjoyed the tea infused noodles intensely! I’ve never tried Kale, ever. I’m interested in making kale chips later this week. Surprisingly the kale had little flavour. Are you going to try it???
Update: Apparently wheat pasta is difficult on the liver. It’s not BAD for you, but if you are preparing for a liver detox this is food on the NO list.
You were all so encouraging about the blog AND my weight loss. For about a year I’ve been making SMALL changes. Whatever everyone says is true, you can’t change everything at once. Over time I’ve cut small things out of our diet, or changed a workout or … But suddenly I’ve had a break through. After a year of small changes I’ve started making huge leaps. Like SUDDENLY we are eating organic produce. I’ve hemmed and hawed about price and necessity, but this week we bought organic. How can I detox if I’m eating pesticides?
