Day 1 : Estrogen

 
 

Cutting out: Red Meat

Goodmorning!! Okay so today has been incredible so far. I woke up, drank 20 oz of water (didn’t put in the cayenne, I forgot), made my bed, started laundry, made a smoothie and let it chill in the freezer for awhile, drank a green super food blend, dry brushed, showered, shaved, and now I’m on here, drinking my smoothie and rejoicing! It’s seriously the small things that make for a good day. My body feels so good right now. I usually would have woke up, had coffee, checked my emails, looked at social media, and probably had a crap breakfast, but between the reset and the fat loss code, I have better ideas for a solid morning routine :)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. TO MAKE MEATBALLS: In a large bowl, combine turkey meat, egg, flour, garlic, salt, and herbs and mix until well incorporated. Roll into small balls (about 1 1/2 inches). You’ll get about 24-26 meatballs. Heat 2 tbsp fat of choice in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Cook meatballs for 3-4 minutes, until all sides are brown. You may need to do this in batches. Set aside.

  2. TO MAKE SOUP: Heat 2 tbsp fat of choice in large soup pot. Add onions, carrots and garlic and cook until onions are translucent – about 5 minutes.

  3. Add bay leaves, broth, and meatballs. Bring to a boil, turn down heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.

  4. Add kale and cook until meatballs are cooked through- about 5-7 minutes.

  5. Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh herbs and red pepper flakes.

1/4 c. fermented beets (Cleveland Kraut)

1/4 c. fermented cabbage (Cleveland Kraut)
