New Yr Detox 2021 – Annual Goop Detox

0

Detoxing can be a challenge. It takes some planning, tracking down potentially unknown ingredients, and cooking every single meal for most of a week. There’s also the fine print about giving up caffeine temporarily (oof). We usually look forward to starting the new year with a little challenge, but this year we thought we should take it easy.

The five-day detox 2021 includes recipes that are simple, adaptable, healthy and delicious. And yes, they still adhere to Dr. Alejandro Junge from the Clean program: free from caffeine, alcohol, dairy products, gluten, corn, nightshade, soy, refined sugar, shellfish, white rice and eggs. As always, we look forward to seeing you make it your own.

We’ve included substitution ideas in the recipes – none of these are scriptures and riffing is highly recommended. Embrace the swaps and tweaks that make sense for your tastes, body, and lifestyle. Go for some store-bought shortcuts and let them delight you. Eat more when you are hungry. Eat a little less when you are full. Listen to your body. Maybe it’s too much to eliminate all of these and you just want to see what happens when you remove dairy from your diet for five days. Maybe you’re only here because you need a little recipe inspiration. Anyway, we are happy to have you. We hope this recipe card makes for a fun reset.

THE PLAN

SUNDAY

If you prepare the Sunday in advance, you can start your detox on the right foot. This list looks long, but none of the recipes are terribly complicated and there is plenty of time to rest so you can multitask.

Sunday preparation is usually designed so that your lunches are ready to pack in the morning and you can take them to work. If you work remotely, you can still benefit from having lunch ready when you want it. However, if you’d rather cook your lunch on the day of, you can skip these prep steps.

  1. Grocery store – or have it delivered!

  2. Make the grain-free seed bread (or buy a loaf of grain-free bread from a local bakery).

  3. Make the all green soup.

  4. Make the curry chickpea salad.

  5. Make the quick pickled coleslaw for the Sweet Potato Bowl.

  6. Marinate the chicken for the miso chicken bowl.

FOR PLANT-BASED EATERS

Since the Clean program recommends eliminating soy products, plant-based adjustments for our annual detox can sometimes be difficult (although you may be surprised at what you can achieve with cauliflower, chickpeas, and butternut squash). Our senior director for science and research, Gerda Endemann, recently wrote about the misunderstandings and benefits of soy. So we recommend recommending good old fashioned tofu as a sub if you like this instead of meat.

Tofu would be brilliantly marinated in miso and coconut amino acids and then grilled like the chicken in the miso chicken bowl.

If the tofu is seasoned with a little salt and pepper, it will be nicely roasted on a baking sheet and topped with salsa verde instead of the haddock (although you will have to cook it a little longer to get a crispy appearance).

As for the third carnivorous recipe in this year’s detox, the lentil and sausage pot, we think you could leave out the sausage entirely. The lentils on their own are very strong, and you might consider increasing the amount of garlic and fennel to make up for the added seasoning in the sausage. Or if you have a favorite plant-based sausage, this is a good place to try – Beyond Sausage is one of the rare gluten-free meat alternatives and would work well here.

We hope you enjoy the book recommended here. Our goal is to only suggest things that we love and that we think you could too. We also like transparency, i.e. full disclosure: we can collect part of the sales or other compensation when you shop via the external link on this page.
