Day 4 Happy Health Reboot

Welcome to Day 4 of the 14 Day Detox!

You are doing great! You will begin to feel an incremental increase in energy over the next couple of days as your body begins to function more optimally. The food elimination  may be a bit challenging; however, it is necessary to allow your digestive system to be free of inflammatory foods that impair optimal health. Stay strong and continue on!

TIP: Don’t know what to nosh on when you are feeling peckish?  Consider eating side dishes, like steam kale with tahini dressing, roasted broccoli with salt and garlic powder through the day as my snacks. And drinking Yogi Tea through the day helps keep my metabolism going, and lightens the caffeine withdrawal.

INSTRUCTIONS

Place the cubed potatoes, cauliflower, and vegetable stock in a saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium-high. Lower heat to medium and let simmer until the vegetables are soft.

Season to taste and purée with an immersion blender until smooth. Keep warm. This will be your mash.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and fresh rosemary and stir for about 1 minute. Sear the scallops 1 to 2 minutes per side, basting with the garlic and rosemary-infused oil. Season the scallops to taste. Serve the purée on small plates. Top each plate with scallops, pine nuts, and fresh chives.
