Now that the party season has properly kicked off and Christmas is only a week away, it would be unrealistic to not expect the odd overindulgence. But instead of a greasy fry up or pain au chocolate to ease the pain, we can be a little bit savvier with our day after choice to help our body recover and avoid the evil clutches of the sugar and carb spiral. Here’s my perfect day after sandwich to help you clean up! Using powerful foods that contain antioxidants to assist the liver’s natural detoxification process, nutrients to soothe the digestive system and protein to re-energise:
2 slices of Biona buckwheat or millet bread, toasted
½ an Avocado, sliced with lemon juice drizzled over
1 organic egg, whisked with fresh black pepper and pink or sea salt
2 tbsp of broccoli sprouts, rinsed and dried
1 tablespoon of Sauerkraut (or kimchi if you like it)
Watercress & Spinach
1 tsp of artichoke paste (can be bought in supermarkets, health food shops and deli’s)
Toast the bread & spread with coconut butter & the artichoke paste.
Whisk and scramble the egg with a little coconut oil
Peel and slice the avocado & put into a bowl.
Mix in a tablespoon of sauerkraut or kimchi
Now to assemble your sandwich:
Put a layer of greens such spinach & watercress on one slice of toast.
Add on the avocado and sauerkraut
Then the scrambled egg on top.
Then the broccoli spouts.
A bit of pink salt and fresh black pepper.
Put the other slice on top, push down and cut in half using a sharp knife.
Let the food do it’s magic!
And drink water……
