Our first post-cleanse meal

This was the first meal I cooked after our week-long kitchadi cleanse.  To ease back into eating separate foods, I chose some spices that help to stimulate the digestion (fresh ginger, fennel, cumin, cardamom, and coriander are all digestive enhancers).  I made the same grain and bean that we’ve been having in kitchadi.

A ginger appetizer was also served (1/3 t fresh grated ginger with a pinch of mineral salt and 2 drops of fresh lime juice) about 10 mins before the meal to stimulate digestion.  Fennel seeds were available as an after-meal digestive aid, as they are known to prevent indigestion, gas, and bloating, and they are a wonderful herbal mouth freshener.  Yum!

Whole Bowl Menu:

  • Yacon (root veggie from Kauai, similar to jicama, slightly sweet, crunchy and watery) and Yellow Beets with coconut oil, fresh ginger, fenugreek seed powder and fennel seed powder
  • Napa cabbage with sunflower oil, fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, coriander, and cardamom
  • Split mung beans with ghee, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, and asafoetida
  • White basmati rice with ghee
