Detox Day 1: Carrot – Banana Muffins

Here are Fit Body’s we are always up for a good ol’ challenge, and nothing says challenge more than a DETOX! It’s that time of year to clean out that gunk and really dial in on our nutrition! Plus, it’s a new way to challenge ourselves.

There are three different levels to this detox. You can given the choice to choose what level you’d like too eliminate.

Level 1: On level one the only foods excluded are: Grains, dairy, sugar, soy, corn, alcohol, legumes (including peanuts), and white potatoes. Sweet potatoes are okay, and there are no limits to fruits choices or vegetables (other then anything listed above). Meats, healthy fats, nuts & seeds are okay.

Level 2: On level two we have to exclude: grains, dairy, sugar, soy, corn, alcohol, legumes (including peanuts), and white potatoes. Fruit choices are limited to 0-2 servings a day, with a list of fruits to choose from. Meats and vegetabales are still included.

Level 3: Limits the diet for the next 21 days to mainly meats, vegetables, and healthy fats. Only water.

Combined both bowls together and mix well. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full, and bake for 22-25 minutes. I sprinkled organic unsweetened shredded coconut on top of ours before we baked them. Cool and enjoy- they are delicious! AND PALEO!
