Cleansing Detox Soup

This recipe is a staple of my Feel Less Shitty Cleanse, and something I love to make almost weekly! Enjoy! xo

feel less shitty cleanse

If I had to reduce your healthy existence to two things you need to get right, it is this: gut health and digestion. (Amongst a million other variables, but really those two are super, super, mother fucking important.) I preach about it all over my book, and it is a driving force behind my Feel Less Shitty Cleanse. In my opinion, the most humble and wonderful food for your immune and digestive systems is a good soup, made from traditionally prepared bone broth, and full of vegetables that provide wonderful nutrients and fiber.

bone broth soupBone broth alone is SO amazing for your gut health, cleansing and overall wellness. Remember the olden days when Chicken Noodle Soup was the cure for everything? It was the broth. It was the bones that made the broth magically healing. Simply because bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and expedite healing.

5 Amazing Benefits of Bone Broth

  • Huge immune system boost
  • Helps reduce cellulite <<< insert emoji hair flip
  • Improves joint health
  • Powerful anti-inflammatory that helps the body HEAL and RECOVER
  • Heals a Leaky Gut

So dig out your bowl, and make your own broth when you can! It is so economical to cook a whole chicken for meat and then use the bones for broth. Good for your body, soul and wallet. Holler. 

I personally feel at a loss when there is not broth in my fridge or on reserve in the freezer. If I am being honest though, I am not great at making my own. My HUBS however, makes the best bone broth, which he calls stock, as they do in kitchens. When I do not lovingly force him into making my broth, I buy it from the Bares Bones Broth Company.

The Cleansing Soup recipe I put together is simply a bowl full of nutrients and fiber, all of which, you guessed it, encourage digestion and the reduction of inflammation. Such a simple and amazing way to devour veggies. Plus, soup is just good for your soul. If you are not into bone broth or meat, this recipe can easily be manipulated and still very beneficial.

Full disclosure: I personally have a tough time consuming bone broth straight up, so I have to have soup, or I add it to sauces, or find a way to make gravy with coconut flour.

Soup’s on!

Detox and Healing Soup

detox soup 1

Cleansing Soup

  • 6 cups of bone broth or organic store bought stock + 4 cups water (you want to cover all the veggies, maybe less, maybe more)
  • 1 sweet potato cut up into chunks
  • 2 cups of kale, de stemmed and chopped in small pieces
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, chopped (about half a head)
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 cloves garlic minced,
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 piece of ginger 3” inch piece (or as much as you can handle) peeled and minced (or I actually use a micro peeler)
  • 2 tablespoons of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • Throw everything into a crockpot and simmer for 8 hours. (You want the sweet potatoes almost mushy.)
  • Feel free to add any other veggies you are into, I personally hate onions but they are cleansing so feel free to add those bad boys.

Bone Broth – Yields approximately 12 cups.

  • Giblets and carcasses from two chickens (or one turkey)
  • 2 medium yellow onions, roots cut off and halved
  • 4-5 carrots, washed and cut in half (or about 2 cups of baby carrots)
  • 6-8 celery stalks, washed and cut into thirds
  • 2 stems of fresh thyme or your favorite herbs
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 gallon cold water (enough to cover the ingredients)

Directions:

  1. Place chicken giblets and carcasses, vegetables, garlic, herbs and bay leaves into a big stock pot.  Fill with enough filtered water to just cover the ingredients.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil on top of the stove, then turn down the heat to keep a simmer for at least 4-6 hours (the longer the better!!!), stirring every half hour or so. Let simmer with lid off for the last hour (or two).
  3. Strain all the ingredients by pouring bone broth from one pot to another through a colander or strainer.

#butterbooty Burger Lounge Giveaway + Keto Krispies Cereal! {sugar-free grain-free paleoish low carb}

You. Guys. I miss cereal so much with my whole heart. I love it. The problem is when I have cereal, I have like 5 bowls not 1. So whilst I preach the moderation wagon, this is one treat I actually really cannot indulge in.  At least not Rice Crispies (my weakness). Except for when I am in the hospital recovering from having a child, Rice Krispies on Rice Krispies on Rice Krispies!

So when I came across this recipe I was beyond intrigued. Made a few modifications and arrived at Keto Krispies. YUMMMM!

 Keto Krispiesketo krispiesIngredients

3 cups coconut flakes (unsweetened)

1/4 of water

1 cup hemp seeds

2 teaspoons of Xyla (could use stevia or something else or maple syrup if not concerned with sugars)

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of salt

3 tablespoons melted ghee (or pasture butter or coconut oil)

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Line Cookie sheet with with parchment paper.

  3. In a large bowl, add water along with cinnamon, salt, vanilla and xyla. Whisk until dry ingredients are dissolved. Add ghee. Add coconut flakes and stir well until flakes are evenly coated. Be sure flakes are not sticking together. Taste for sweetness.  Add more sweetener if desired.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and carefully stir. Bake for 15 minutes. Keep repeating process until golden brown and krispy, but KEEP an eye out. Mine burned. But I still LOVE IT.
  5. Pour some with a little coconut milk, raw milk, heavy cream whatever. You really do not need a lot of liquid, it absorbs it like crazy! ENJOY!

#butterbooty Burger Lounge Giveaway

So, the #butterbooty challenge is rocking my world. You all are so awesome and inspiring, and also, totally kicking your own donks which is fun for me. One thing I want to share over this 12 week challenge is that eating can be enjoyable. You do not have to be a crazy person, and you should indulge here and there. That said, if you have not discovered Burger Lounge or do not have one near you, I sincerely apologize. Like, from the bottom of my heart apologize.

Burger Lounge is one of my favorite places to go out to eat at on the entire planet! Simply because it is beyond delicious, and I can get a wholesome, humanely raised, paleoish/primal/keto meal anytime I would like. AND hubs is obsessed. And is Wubbas. So it’s like a “healthy” restaurant my hubs can enjoy, too. NOT always the case.

burger lounge

Their beef is grass-fed, their turkey is free-range, they use local produce and based their restaurant truly on the real food movement. What is NOT to love? I can go and get an amazing lettuce wrapped Turkey burger with pickles, and hubs can get fries, a shake, whatever and enjoy his life. Heaven for us both.

Anyhooters, my friends at Burger Lounge are giving away two $20 gift cards, to be selected at random with a #butterbooty Instagram check-in:

1. Post a photo of you doing something amazing for yourself be it completing a #butterbooty workout, eating something delightful (and a touch healthy), walking, resting, whatever and tag @eatcleanpissglitter + @burgerlounge + #butterbooty.

2. Winner will be selected at random on Friday at 7pm PST.

Alright #butterbooty lovers? Get after it!

PS If you have not joined our Facebook group and want in on the challenge, DO IT!   Never too late to work on that donk.

#GutCheck Recipe: Ginger Spice Slice

Ginger Benefits

This is probably one of my favorite recipes featured in the three week Gut Check in Eat Clean. Piss Glitter! Well you should know first and foremost that I love ginger, ADORE GINGER. I am a ginger kid. It makes my tummy flatter, my liver so happy and I just feel alive when I eat/drink it in juice. So this little lady lovely is straight from my three week Gut Check that is wonderful to be consumed before or after meals to help soothe your tummy, and hopefully aid in digestion.

A small gingery warning: This recipe is NOT for the faint of heart. This is very spicy. If you would like it to be less spicy, I suggest slicing your ginger as THIN as possible and add a little filtered water.

Ginger actually has broad-spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-parasitic properties, to name just several of its more than 40 pharmacological actions (source).

A Few of the Many MANY MANY Benefits of Ginger

  • Anti-inflammatory – great to ease pain relief and wonderful for those with arthritis, headaches and even MENSTRUAL cramps
  • Ginger can potentially help fight cancer and diabetes
  • Helps stabilize blood sugar
  • Great for nausea, motion and morning sickness, and upset stomach
  • Boosts metabolism by temporarily increasing thermogenesis in your body
  • Fighting bacteria and infections

(source)

Ready to ginger up?

Ginger Spice Slice

Ginger Spice Slice

  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • One good 3-4 inch piece of ginger, sliced thinly into 1″ slices
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • A little bit of filtered water to cover the ginger
  • Add everything to a small mason jar and make sure the ginger is covered with liquid. Shake it up, enjoy a slice before each meal or whenever you need a little perk me up!
  • Good in the fridge up to a week. I like to make these beauties every Sunday to last me the week ahead

Hope you enjoy Ginger Spice!

Surrender. Make Paleo Coconut Chicken

We are getting ready for a big game here Saturday.  Momma went to UCLA and daddy went to Stanford, and Wynston already prefers blue and gold. Gooo blue team.  Anyhooters in the sake of tailgating – or if you are with infant – bbq’ing at your house and tailgating from your couch, I thought I would share a delightfully healthy and delicious paleo coconut chicken recipe.

I literally could eat this chicken everyday.

Paleo Coconut Chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 package or about 1 pound of Trader Joe’s Organic Boneless Skinless Free Range Chicken Tenders (or you can cut up chicken breasts yourself)
  • 1/2 cup of almond or coconut flour (I prefer almond)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of organic pasture raised heavy whipping cream (optional)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Seasonings – sea salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika and lemon pepper if you so choose (play around with seasonings)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Rinse chicken
  3. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil
  4. Set aside three bowls – one for the flour, one for the coconut and one for the 2 eggs beat together
  5. Dip chicken strip in the flour, then the egg mixture then the coconut and lay strip on cookie sheet (repeat until all are coated)
  6. Bake at 400 for about 12-15 minutes depending on your oven.  I like mine a little more well done.
  7. Mix a little ketchup with cayenne pepper and dip away!

Today I woke up, boobed the babe and sent him to cuddle with hubs so I could get on with T25 Day 4. Today was ab day, today was tough. Shaun T really does not mess around. 25 minutes he kicks my donk three ways sideways. I am LOVING this workout series and already feeling 600% better about my life, like I am doing something small but so good for my body and sanity everyday without apology.

I realize my last post may have seemed like I done lost it, but I haven’t, being a new mom, adjusting to my new role and body is just a process. A friend commented on that post that theme of her new life of being a mom is surrender.  How wonderful, appropriate and fitting is that?

Surrender.

So today I am trying just that, surrendering to the fact that I don’t have control of my day and I just have to do what I can and make the little man happy.  Seems to be going well so far.

I am off to surrender these toes and get a pedicure while Gramma watches the sleeping angel.
