The 21-Day Sugar Detox is my favorite group nutrition program, not only to run as a coach but also to complete as a participant. It was one of the books I purchased at the beginning of my "real-food" journey that completed changed my life. Read more about that story here.
At the beginning of 2018, The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide was released as an additional resource for participants completing the program and it is awesome! I am blown away with how much content is packed into such a "small" book. This will be an excellent complete resource for participants.
Not only does this book contain 75 recipes (many are brand-new) and a done-for-you meal plan, but there are updated yes/no lists and program guidelines, how to build a 21DSD plate plus other guides, daily lessons, daily messages from Diane, and a journal to track your experience.
If you are thinking about completing the program, I cannot recommend this book enough... and a coach of course! ;)
Here's a little sneak peek recipe of the deliciousness inside the pages. This B3 Bowl is truly SO EASY to make (especially once you have the spice blend made) and is really tasty! You will NOT miss pasta in this bowl!
B3 Bowl from The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide
PREP TIME: 5 minutes, plus 40 minutes to make the broccoli
COOK TIME: 10 to 15 minutes
MAKES 2 servings
1 tablespoon cooking fat
1 tablespoon Italian Spice Blend (recipe below)
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1 (24-ounce) jar sugar-free pasta sauce of choice
sea salt and ground black pepper
1 batch Crispy Broccoli (recipe below)
Fresh basil leaves, for topping (optional)
Grated cheese of choice, for topping (optional; Levels 1 & 2 only)
In a large skillet, melt the cooking fat over medium-high heat.
Season the beef and pork with the spice blend, then add the meat to the pan and cook until browned through, approximately 5 to 8 minutes.
Once the meat is done, add the pasta sauce and simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce is heated though, 5 to 10 minutes, stirring to combine.
Add salt and pepper to taste, then remove the pan from the heat.
Dived the crispy broccoli between two plates and ladle equal portions of the meat sauce over it. Garnish with fresh basil and grated cheese, if desired.
Change it up!
Try this served over Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Polenta or Basic Cilantro Cauli-Rice (both available in The 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide).
Italian Spice Blend
Makes 1/2 cup
3 tablespoons dried parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated garlic
1 tablespoon granulated onion
1 tablespoon fennel seeds, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon dried ground sage
1 teaspoon ground black pepper or 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 20 TO 30 minutes
Makes 2 servings (about 1 cup per serving)
1 large head broccoli, cut into florets
1 tablespoon cooking fat
1 teaspoon Trifecta Spice Blend (use granulated garlic, salt & pepper)
A few pinches of red pepper flakes
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the broccoli florets on a large rimmed baking sheet (preferably stainless steel rather than nonstick for the best browning).
Toss them with the cooking fat and spice blend.
Roast for 20 to 30 minutes, until the broccoli ends become dark brown and crispy. Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes and lemon juice before serving.
