14 Days Detox Challenge, DAY3 : feeling better PLUS a Turkey Burger Recipe!

Here's the end of day 3, and I have to say I am feeling much better than yesterday.
It is probably because this morning I had a chat with one of the nutritionists running the detox, the wonderful Louise Joyce, and we had a chat about my symptoms. She tweaked the amount of supplement for me. Less of this, move this to the afternoon etc.. And I feel good so far.
This is why I keep saying, if you choose to embark on a detox, please make sure you are being supervised by a professional practitioner. They'll be there to support you throughout this adventure and monitor any adverse effects you might have. Everyone is different, so many people will not react like I did, they might however face different challenges and require support for those.
I started today with a berry, pear and almond butter smoothie which I really enjoyed.

and ended it with a crazy delicious dinner using all foods allowed: rosemary turkey burgers made with flax egg (flaxseeds and water instead of an egg as that is not allowed in program), with baked sweet potato fries and peas with red onions (my mom's recipe). I also mashed an avocado and dipped both burgers and fries in it. Oh yeah..
Detox has never tasted so delicious!


500g turkey mince (preferably organic)
1 large or 2 smaller red onions sliced thin
1 thumb sized piece of ginger (peeled and chopped really small)
1 garlic clove chopped
2 sprigs of rosemary chopped
2 handfuls of nutritional yeast
1tbsp ground faxseeds (linseeds)
3 tbsp water
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp coconut oil

Turn the oven on 180C (356 F).
Add the ground flaxseeds and water to a small bowl, mix and pop in the fridge for 15 minutes, this will be your egg substitute.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan and add, onions, garlic and ginger. Stir every now and then till soft and add rosemary for one last minute before taking off the heat.
Grab a bowl and put the turkey mince, nutritional yeast, flax egg and onion mix. Add salt and pepper and mix everything together.
Line a baking try with baking paper, and use the mix to create burger patties similar in size.
Once all your burgers are on the tray, pop everything in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. Flip the burgers on the other side and cook for a further 10 minutes.

One minute before the burgers are done, slice in half a soft avocado, scoop out the flesh. add the juice of half a lemon and a pinch of salt, mash everything together and use that as a dipping "sauce" for both burgers and sweet potato fries.

Happy detox baby!
