Split It

I loved reading all your wonderful comments about the Detox, I am learning soooo much! My Oats say Gluten free on the package so I think I am ok, but I might have to give up the Chocolate Silk and Barney Butter. There is no added sugar but there is Evaporated cane juice (which I am now learning is sugar). I love learning how to eat as CLEAN as possible, I know that my body is going to LOVE me for it.

I didn’t have as big of a headache today, but was SO CRAVING me some COFFEE. Some people asked about how much I drank before I started the Detox, I would say about 1-2 cups a day depending on the day.

On to lunch…

I enjoyed some super tastey Vegan Split Pea Soup, forgot how much I LOVED SPLIT PEA soup!

Along with a Veggie Avocado Wrap made with a rice tortilla. Not sure about the rice tortillas… I added in some grapes and organic pinto beans.

I had this apple on the side, but I am too FULL to eat it!

And for my mid-morning snack I enjoyed some of my own trail mix, Puffins plus Mixed Unsalted Nuts.

I can not believe how full I am right now, I am going to go for a walk before I return to work. I can’t wait for our Cross Country Meet this afternoon, GO RAVENS!

Anyone have a organic, salt free, gluten free split pea soup recipe or any other soup?

I love that split pea soup - SO GOOD! I eat it almost every day :o) It definitely fills ya up even though you don't expect it to! I don't have a recipe because I am lazy, but I will be checking back!

So loving your detox - you always provide such great information, Bobbi!

What a good detox lunch!

I made this butternut squash and lentil soup last year. I remember it being good, but it's been a while. You would just need to make sure all the components are organic: http://www.deliciousbynature.com/?p=99 . And, of course, you could also leave out the meat and use veggie broth if you prefer. Enjoy!

Hey Bobbi,

I have commented once or twice. But look into something called the Primal Diet!!

Mark said...

I used to always eat that soup when I worked at Clark's, now I am craving it!

Hi Bobbi!
Trader Joe's has a really delicious Valencia Peanut Butter with Flax. It has nothing in it but peanuts and flax and it is SO good. Valencia peanuts are naturally sweeter!

This is a very versatile soup recipe and it can be sodium free if you use sodium free vegetable broth. I like to puree part of it while cooking to give it a creamier texture!

Oats themselves don't have gluten, but are contaminated b/c they are processed with gluten. You can eat oats, but they need to be certified gluten-free. Bob's Red Mill makes certified gluten-free oats.

Hope this helps.
