What are “unlimited foods?” Eat as much of these as you like, with or between meals:

  • Alfalfa sprouts

  • Asparagus
  • Baby corn
  • Bamboo shoots
  • Bean sprouts
  • Bok choy – sautéed with ume plum vinegar (sauté the stems first with onions and garlic, then when close to fully cooked, add the leaves)

  • Winter squash (spaghetti or pumpkin) – makes great soups in a Vitamix. Just cook, remove seeds, add 1/2 a pear, salt and pepper and chicken or veggie stock.

    **NOTE: Sometimes the third salad just isn’t going to happen. Daily Greens is my secret trick. I love it because it has greens from REAL FOOD. Not the random stuff you avoid like, fillers, dairy, gluten, eggs, soy, sugar, peanuts, GMO’s, preservatives, MSG, artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners.

    Just PURE greens. It is great by itself and was born to mix into your Daily Reset Shake. Order HERE
