What we ate this week: Detox January Week 1

Me with Elvis tribute artist Keith Henderson
Happy Elvis' Birthday!

Well, actually, it's tomorrow (January 8), but I don't post on Saturdays so you're getting the love and cheer a day early.

I'd love to hear if you've joined us for Detox January and how it's going for you.

Here's a roundup of some of the things we ate during Week 1:

  • Chicken Larb -- I served this with naan rather than on lettuce leaves and used the leftovers to make a pizza
  • Chicken and Blue Cheese Salad -- one of my old standbys, I make this frequently with leftover chicken or turkey. It's quick, easy and very satisfying (you could omit the meat and have a great vegetarian meal salad, too)
  • Fresh Salmon and Lime Cakes -- I modified this recipe by not frying the cakes at all but instead baked them at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes (turned out perfectly!)

If you need a splurge, may I recommend The King's favorite?

  1. I actually have been doing the detox thing....I figured that since I have been getting ZERO exercise that wouldn't be too hard to improve on. Plus I rarely drink alcohol these days, so another easy one.

    It's been going very well for me! I've actually exercised with Gil (!!) a couple of times this week and last week, and as you know we even ate FISH. The healthy eating part has been the biggest struggle, but I'm doing better than I was. The good news is that I've lost a couple of pounds; the bad news is that last year I gained about 20, but hey, down is down, right?

    Thanks for the inspiration, and all the yummy recipes. That blue cheese salad looks great, I'm going to put blue cheese on my shopping list for the week. Mmmmmm.
