After the last few weeks of over indulgence in just about everything I'm feeling rather heavy & dull so I will be starting a 3 day Cold Pressed Juicery Cleanse with the aim to energize my body back up and feel good again!
Before doing any cleanse it is important to prepare your body for a few days before, this means having a few early nights & avoiding meat, processed foods such as bread & pasta, gluten, dairy, processed sugar, saturated fats, alcohol & caffeine for at least 2 days before the cleanse.
This time around, not eating traditional pasta forced me to come up with another option - Carrot "pasta" with a zing, it's super easy, delicious & very nutritious:
serves 2 hungry pre-cleansers
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons tamari sauce
2 teaspoons grated ginger
2 small garlic cloves grated
a handful of parsely
a handful of seeds (I used pine nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds & sunflower seeds)
Chilli flakes optional!
Peel the carrots and then spiralize (or just grate) your carrots into a big bowl.
Mix the tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, tamari, ginger & garlic together in a smaller bowl.
Pour the sauce over the carrots and mix well.
Top with chopped parsley and seeds and chilli flakes if using.
