Detoxers! If the recipes look amazing except for that ONE… here a couple substitutes. Easy, and you likely already have the ingredients:
JUICE: BEET CARROT APPLE
SMOOTHIE: PUMPKIN SMOOTHIE: Use unsweetened non-dairy milk, and keep the agave (lucky you!)
SOUP: SPICED RED LENTIL, TOMATO, and KALE SOUP
SALAD: FULLY LOADED KALE SALAD: Use rice vinegar as a simple dressing
MAIN DISH: CHICKPEA RATATOUILLE (or the Cannellini Ratatouille from Skinny Dish! if you have a copy (sans bulgur))
Looking forward to eating and drinking with you all!

Hello! Glad to see you liked my recipe and my photo. Your detoxers can find more great recipes and wellness tips at http://www.greenplatestudios.com. Cheers! – Analiese
Hey Analiese! Thank you so much! I hope it’s ok that I linked to your recipe — that’s my favorite beet juice combo. If I should credit you in any additional way, let me know! XOXO -Jen
Thanks Jen! The way you credited me is perfect, but thank you for asking. 🙂
I have a confession: I’m a beet hater and not too fond of kale, either. One thing I have already discovered about doing a detox is that it causes an individual to think about new healthy foods and try them. So I promise to try Analiese’s BEET CARROT APPLE smoothie (thanks, Analiese!) and the SPICED RED LENTIL, TOMATO, and KALE SOUP this week.
Also, one question, can I continue quinoa eating this week?
Thanks for the great subs.
Great bravery, Karen! YES YES YES on the quinoa. Eat up! 🙂
Karen, if you really dislike beets, you could always just increase the amount of carrots or apples in the juice. It will still be a super healthy concoction minus the beets. Also, romaine works really well in juices in place of kale. In fact, it has a higher water content so it juices more easily. Just a couple tips to make it a little more palatable for you. Best of luck!
Thanks for your suggestions. I’m really going to do this smoothie. I have seen so may recipes out there, plus beets are a winter food (aren’t they?) I need to make your recipe and go forward.
BTW Your site is really forward thinking, and I like your life philosophy.
