Hi all! I have been following the forum for a few weeks and have been on the diet about the same amount of time. However, after getting the strict diet information from Able, and getting the necessary supplements to prepare my liver, I’m going to start again with the strict diet, b/c I was eating chicken and nuts before. I have been going through the strict diet and I am hoping you all can give me some suggestions. Are there different ways you can eat these veggies or can you only eat them raw or steamed? I’m really sick of no flavor (I’m not a very creative cook)! Also, I’m exhausted and need protein, but I don’t have a clue what to do with the hemp seeds! I’m eating way too many avacodoes and trying to do the eggs, but it’s a challenge!
So far the majority of what I’ve been eating these last several weeks is raw lettuces/field greens (I could just as easily go outside and pull some things out of the ground and it would taste about the same), and veggies. Occasionally, I have stir fried the veggies in coconut and olive oil, and I have baked some cauliflower and asparagus. Most things are void of flavor. If that’s the point then so be it, but if it’s not the point, and you guys are doing some thing’s differently, will you give me some suggestions please?!
Thanks!May 25, 2012 at 8:10 pm #83092

Roasting, stir frying, or grilling vegetables is acceptable as well. What did you have in mind?
Once you’ve finished with the detox, mustard made with ACV is acceptable on the diet. My favorite way of eating eggs were to boil them and make deviled eggs. All I used was the mustard and salt & pepper mixed with the yolk. You can also make egg salad this way by chopping the white part of the egg along with the yellow. I would spread this on toasted coconut bread or oat bran bread. The mustard gives you a tangy taste that’s otherwise missing in the strict diet.
Mix the hemp seeds in soups, add them to your coconut bread recipe, if you cook buckwheat cereal, mix them in with the buckwheat, sprinkle them in your yogurt, put them in your salads, or blend them in your homemade vegetable juice.
Have you researched the recipe section?

I have looked through the recipe section, but either I’m not doing something right or I’m mostly seeing recipes for Stage 2. What soups are you all referring to? Are you making your own broth? How are you doing that? How are you making the mustard Able. Is it dry mustard and ACV? That I would enjoy! I was also looking for a snack that has some flavor, instead of just raw celery or cucumbers and the like. I am still struggling with cravings, especially with my husband and kids around, so anything with a little flavor or kick would help I think!
Thanks for any suggestions. I think the coconut bread will help. I’m allergic to buckwheat though, any suggestions on alternatives or should I just leave it out. Also, are teff, oat bran, and millet flours GF? I’ve seen a few variations of the coconut bread and I’m not sure what to try. Any thoughts?May 29, 2012 at 10:55 pm #83419
