Kale Quinoa Egg Bowl
 
When you are on a cleanse your diet is more limited, which means you need to get creative with your meals. This dish came out my desire to eat something that was filling and satisfying, while also following my food guideline. And it had to be simple to put together, because these days when I'm hungry I don't want to be messing around with making some elaborate meal. This is simple, nutritious, tasty, and gets the job done.

Notes
Kale contains high doses of Vitamins A, E, and K. It is also packed with over 45 antioxidants! Kale also helps support the bodies detoxification process which is perfect for a cleanse.Bok Choy contains a wealth of vitamins C, A, and K, and excellent sources of calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron, bok choy deserves its reputation as a powerhouse among vegetables. Vitamin A, for instance, is essential for a properly functioning immune system, while vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields the body from free radicals. Bok choy supplies potassium for healthy muscle and nerve function, and vitamin B6 for carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.

Quinoa is considered one of the healthiest grains. Not only is it Gluten free, but it’s a complete protein containing 9 essential amino acids. It also contains twice as much fiber as other grains. Packed full of Phytonutrients and Antioxidants it is no wonder that Quinoa was so highly valued by ancient tribes that would consume this grain for health and stamina.

In my opinion Avocado’s might just be one of the healthiest foods you can eat. One avocado gives you an ample serving of fiber, protein, and fat. In particular they contain all of your good healthy fats that help lower the bad cholesterol in your body. And they also contain high levels of nutrients such as Folate and Lutein, which helps to support eye health. Avocados lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of stroke. They bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function. The fiber content promotes healthy digestion. They are known for a wide variety of anti-inflammatory benefits due to its high nutrient content. This makes it a great immune booster and cancer fighter. Overall one of the best foods you can eat, hands down!

Eggs have gotten a bad rap through the years with the whole high cholesterol thing. But current studies have shown that the consumption of eggs does not actually raise cholesterol, and in fact it actually promotes heart health and weight loss. That is as long as you eat the yolk too. None of this egg white only stuff! All the good nutrients are in the yolk. So indulge in the extra 40 calories, it’s not going to hurt your waist line.
