On Day 2 I can eat corn or rice for grains so it's easier to utilize some already prepared foods. If pressed for time, I reach for Nature Path corn flakes or Bob's Red Mill rice cereal for breakfast. Food for Life brand brown rice tortillas make great wraps for lunch. Other foods on the menu for Day 2 include wild Alaskan salmon, fresh avocado and avocado oil, mustard greens, red or green cabbage, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, jicama, tahini or sesame seeds, and peaches. Below is the menu plan and recipes for avocado dressing, tahini dressing and grilled lime salmon. Pumpkin, at right, will do whatever it takes to get some salmon.
Breakfast: Nature Path cornflakes served with frozen peaches (thawed) and rice milk, and sprinkled with 1 T. toasted black sesame seeds.
Lunch: Brown rice tortilla wrap with grilled salmon, 1 sliver of avocado diced, and 2 cups chopped veggies, including mustard greens, purple cabbage and water chestnuts. Drizzle the wrap ingredients with tahini dressing, roll up and enjoy. Save some of the tahini dressing for dipping.
Dinner: Grilled lime salmon served on a bed of sauted chopped jicama, water chestnuts, mustard greens, and green and purple cabbage, and drizzled with avocado dressing.
