Today’s exercise is one hour of stairs. Nope, not on the stair stepper. I have a 15 step flight in my own home. Up and down over and over again. Wish my quads luck. And yes, my dog joins me :)

Mango madnessMango Madness, pure yummy afternoon snack

I’ll be doing steamed oriental veggies for snackage today and sprinkling them with a bit of Bragg’s liquid aminos. Unsweetened herbal tea is keeping me warm throughout the day.

  1. Had the Spotted Peach smoothie for breakfast…Looking forward to a giant, veggie-rich salad for lunch topped w/ Goddess dressing; don’t forget the hummus and crunchy veggies…Dinner will be butternut soup.

    • Oh man, that goddess dressing. I just took your namesake dressing and read the label and took the oil out to make this version. BAM! In love! Yay for Butternut Soup! I might do spotted peach tomorrow!

  2. I love that you are sharing your wealth of knowledge about health with so many people. It does my heart good to see people so willing to give freely of themselves knowing how much they get back from doing so.Keep rawkin it out!! :)

  3. Stairs are wicked and good for ya! ;-) I did them yesterday….and I am feeling it :-D

    • Oh yeah baby.
      p.s. I’m not ignoring you. I’m trying to stay away from other blogs this week so that I don’t freak out with temptation! Still love you, I’ll catch up next week, promise!

  4. Hi Somer looks very good, but is this all you have for the day ? Is it a diet thing ? Or a body flush diet ??? Thanks

  5. Hi Somer. I’m feeling better. Yahoo!! I will start the cardio tomorrow and continue for seven more days. I love the image of you on the stairs with your dog!

    • Woot! Glad you kicked that bug to the curb. I’ll probably still be at it too! My dog loves running with me. Too much ice and snow outside for us to run comfortably. I need to teach him to run on the treadmill ;)

  6. Oh boy, that Tropical Colada Smoothie sounds awesome. Can’t wait to try :) Thanks

  7. Wow is all I can say!!! I am sure you feel amazing :-)

    I LOVE the Spinach pineapple colada. I am definately happy to be doing this “health quest”. It’s been fun- thanks girl.

  9. Today is day one for me. Was craving butternut squash soup…might make that tomorrow. Wish me luck!

    Have to let you know I made your Roasted Butternut Soup today and it was out of this world!!! I used fresh thyme (cause I had some) and it didn’t need a smidge of salt! VERY TASTY! Best Butternut Squash Soup I’ve ever had…

  11. Mandi

    I’m unable to do the detox fully this week….but, I did print it off and will go full force when I know I can give it a full week. I have tried some of the smoothies, though. Delicious!!!

  12. I made the butternut squash soup for lunches this week. So good! Thank you for this plan and the recipes.

  13. Somer, thank you SO much for this incredible plan! I am having so much fun with the salad combinations, loving the soups, and going through greens like crazy with all these smoothies. It is great to see how it is possible to keep meals simple while getting so many nutrients and eating such a large volume. I am one who prefers lots of small meals to a few large ones, so this works well for me. Plus, I love hummus beyond reason, so a meal plan featuring hummus so prominently is totally up my alley!

  15. The Tropical Colada Green Smoothie is AWESOME!

    My vitamix arrives on Monday, I’ll start this on Tuesday. I’ve never done a cleanse/detox before but all your recipes look so yummy, I “have” to try it. I made the butternut squash soup yesterday, but used to much broth. It was thinner than I like my soups, till I realized I can put it in my thermos, and it will make a perfect lunch at work.

    • I made the butternut soup yesterday too and it was too thin. The original recipe was based on a large butternut. I used a medium one yesterday and it was too much broth as well. I cooked it down til it was thicker, but I’ve updated the printable challenge with less liquid for a smaller butternut :) It would be perfect for a thermos though!
