Day 3: Sweet Potato Salad and Breakfast Bars

The Quantum Wellness Cleanse book is proving to have some really good recipes in it. I made some Cherry Coconut Breakfast bars and they are awesome. I looked at them when they came out of the oven and thought these are never going to fill me up for breakfast but boy was I wrong! These are filled with steel cut oats, coconut, apricots, cherries and much more. One bar fills me up until lunch and really gets your jaw working as you chew through it.
For supper we had Middle Eastern Sweet-Potato Salad over mixed greens with Hot Buffalo Tofu. I was a little sceptic when I read combining green olives with sweet potatoes but wow what a flavour combo. This was super easy to make and tasted amazing. I was a little disappointed in the organic sweet potatoes that I bought at Superstore because they were white. I am sure a nice orange sweet potato/yam would make these supper even more pleasing to the eye.
Hot Yoga this morning was 75 minutes of Moksha Yoga. It totally kicked my butt again!

The food looks yummy - but I'm a bit skeptical of the book itself. Is it about "cleansing" per se, or does it just offer "eat clean" type meals?

It is more about eating clean type meals. There is no fasting or juicing. It is mainly just about cuting out sugar, caffeine, gluten. It follows a vegan diet just pushes it a little futher with no sugar/gluten.
