Clean Eating Cleanse: Day 5
You have just about made it!! Today being the last day of the cleanse, the meal plans are a bit flexible as I want you to use the vegetables/proteins you have left. Also, I understand the same food items can get very repetitive so feel free to eat what sounds good, as long as it is within the options and part of the grocery list. Make sure you stay within the options I am giving you for each meal though so you stay within the calorie counts!
*Remember to eat all meals 2-3 hours apart, having your last meal at least 3 hours before bed.

Kale Salad + Quinoa/Chicken + Veggies
You have an option today; you can do the same salad you had yesterday with the kale and quinoa, or you can do 4 oz of chicken instead. You will be having chicken for dinner so do what you have the most of and/or what sounds the best.
At least one hour before its time to eat, mix 2 cups of kale with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and juice from 1/2 a lemon. Let sit in fridge to soften leaves. Add 1/2 cup qunioa OR 4 oz lean chicken breast. (If you want to do both quinoa and chicken, only do 1/4 cup quinoa and 2 oz chicken.) Top with cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber and broccoli.
Mango + Green Tea
Slice a mango, potion out approx. 1 cup and eat with the skin. Drink a glass of green tea with snack (optional: grate ginger zest and add lemon juice).
If you would rather, have 10 asparagus spears with 1/4 cup quinoa and green tea.
Total Calories: 100
Chicken + Mixed Greens + Vegetable
Cook 4 oz lean chicken breast with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. While cooking, mix 2 cups mixed greens (spinach and arugula, kale or other greens – whatever you have most of left!), 10 spears asparagus, chopped cucumber and cherry tomatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Dice chicken and place on top of salad.
If you don’t want the chicken, use 1/2 cup quinoa instead.
