Note: The 2 glasses of water should make up for ¼ of your daily requirement of water but no more than 1 quart total.
20 minutes after hydrating yourself, you may eat your FIRST MEAL of the day which should be composed of RAW vegetables. No beverages should be ingested with your meal.
The vegetable salad consists of 3 parts:
Important: eat all ingredients RAW!
1. VEGETABLE PART (for phytonutrients)
All green vegetables. The darker the green the more Chlorophyll they contain. Choose from:
Don’t use more than 2 to 3 different items from the above list per meal. You may vary from day to day.
2. CARBOHYDRATES (for energy)
3. SPROUTS (for enzymes and energy)
For DRESSING, blend: lemon juice (1 or 2), crushed garlic (1/3 clove) - can also use garlic powder, a pinch of Real Salt or Himalayan Salt, 2 tablespoons sunflower, 1/5 fresh onion - can also use onion powder, 1/3 red pepper, and very little water to make it less creamy but not too watery. This seasoning makes the salad much more palatable!
Hydration: wait 1 1/2 to 2 hours after the time you had your breakfast before you begin drinking water again. Drink 8 ounces every 30 minutes and alternate with green leafy juices (not smoothies). Your last drink should end 30 minutes before having lunch.
Lunch is a cooked meal consisting of 2 parts:
1. The Base → Tuber or Grain
2. A Vegetable → use any lightly steamed vegetable prepared with as little water as possible. Select a different vegetable from day to day. Don’t repeat a vegetable until you have gone through the entire selection offered in your supermarket.
Hydration: wait 1 1/2 to 2 hours after the time you had your lunch before you begin drinking water again. Drink 8 ounces every 30 minutes and alternate with green leafy juices (not smoothies). Your last drink should by 6PM or if you intend to have dinner, 30 minutes before your meal.
For optimal results, skip dinner.
