AdvoCare 10 Day Cleanse With Recipes

It is now day 4 of my AdvoCare 10 day cleanse and let me first start off by saying that I am not a health nut, obviously! I do not plan all my meals with a fruit, vegetable, protein, and healthy carb. I normally never plan my meals at all, that's how I got to be 205 pounds. Well that, and the fact that I was pregnant ... twice. So I'm not writing this post to play a poser and act like I got my shit together. This is simply to help out anyone else who might be looking for some healthy recipes for the cleanse, or just in general.

I know that most bloggers/blog readers started the AdvoCare 10 day cleanse yesterday, but I'm impatient and I started it on Saturday. One reason was because I've never done a cleanse before I wanted to make sure I knew how my body was going to react to it. I didn't want to be at work, if shit went down, literally. The second reason was because I figured it would be easier to plan my meals for the remaining days. Since I started on Saturday, I now have three or four meals leftover for lunches during the week, so it worked out.

Before I get into the different meals I've made so far, let me first start with the weigh in. If you were wondering too, I took a "before" picture, but I'll post that with the "after," once this is all over.

Like I've said before, I have not been on track at all lately and though I tried getting back to eating healthy, my mind just wasn't in it. So going from 148 pounds to 153 pounds, just sucked! I'm so happy I started this cleanse to get my head right and back on track with eating healthy. Here is my progress so far....


 
 
 
5 pounds on day 4, I would say I must be doing something right. I'm feeling more energetic too, which I wasn't expecting considering I had no choice but to give up coffee and soda. On top of that, no one has been punched in the face, with said, lack of coffee, so it's a win, win ... so far!
 
I am not a morning person and normally, I am not a breakfast person either. Just give me a Skinny Grande Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks and I'm good till lunch. After starting this cleanse though, I'm actually liking the breakfasts I've made so far. If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen these already. But this is just a little more detail of how I made each one. Hope you find something to try.
 
Oatmeal with Peaches & Cinnamon
 
* Cut up peaches into little bite sized pieces, place in a bowl and coat with cinnamon
* Cook oatmeal as per package instructions
* 1 to 2 minutes before the oatmeal is done, add the peaches
* Stir together, once peaches are soft, then serve
 
 
Looks pretty gross, but I promise, it isn't. You can also add apples, which I haven't tried yet, but I will be trying soon.
 
Scrambled Egg Whites with Veggies
 
* Spray skillet with Pam
* On medium/high heat add your favorite veggies (I added red and green peppers, broccoli, and onion)
* Add one whole egg (for added protein) and two or three egg whites
* Scramble together until eggs and vegtables have cooked and serve
 
 
After I made this on Saturday morning, I didn't really get to eat too much of it because I had a little begging puppy near by.
 

 
Over the weekend it was fun to try and mix things together to make lunches and leftovers for dinners. Here are a few that I've tried so far.
 
Lemon Salmon with Brown Rice & Pineapple
 
* Spray baking sheet with Pam
* Bake salmon at 350 degrees for roughly 30-45 minutes with lemon slices on top for flavor
* Make brown rice as per instructions on package
* Sautee your favorite veggies in skillet with Pam (I used garlic, onion, broccoli, red and green peppers, and onions)
* Once the veggies are done, add brown rice to skillet and stir together
* Add pineapple chunks to the brown rice and vegtables and serve
 
 
 Chicken Marinara with Spinach
 
* Spray Pyrex dish (glass dish) with Pam
* Place pieces of raw chicken in dish and add marinara sauce on top (I tried Mezzetta Homemade Style Marinara it was delish!)
* Bake in the oven on 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes
* Make your favorite veggie for a side (I made spinach) and serve
 
 
This one was another one of my favorites, that I'll be making again.
 
Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps
 
* Cook ground turkey in a pan till no longer pink
* Drain grease (there won't be much)
* Add cooked turkey back to the hot pan and mix with no sodium taco seasoning as per instructions on package
* Place cooked turkey in lettuce wrap and serve
 
 
 
After I made this, I realized I should have added veggies to it, it needed something like cheese olives, tomatoes or onions.
 
Tonight on the menu is sauted shrimp with vegetables and brown rice. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see other recipes I'll be posting for the next few days, while on the cleanse.

  2. You're doing awesome - gettin' pretty creative in the kitchen there!! =) .. I am going to try your marinara chicken, that looks and sounds yummy! I did a "mexican bowl" for my lunches this week - just brown rice, black beans, and chicken I put in the crockpot with low sodium taco seasoning and salsa .. could also add peppers, onions and what not for more volume, but it is really good as is! So are you exercising at all???

    Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this
    blog. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to
    get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance.
    I must say you've done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely
    fast for me on Safari. Superb Blog!

  13. Weird Minecraft Glitch - Minecraft Glitches
    Fix 4. I think you can download the software, it can help you to play
    Minecraft offline. So, in other words, Xbox One will be tracking
    how many times someone has been blocked and muted and factor that into their reputation, along with
    voluntarily submitted complaints.
