Culinary Collaboration 3: New Year Detox

Culinary Collaboration 3: New Year Detox

This CC is designed to make it easier to come down gently from the sugar cookie high from the holiday season. Even if you didn’t go all out crazy, most of us ate more desserts and enjoyed a little more wine than usual. These recipes aren’t different than what I normal post but I made a special effort to ensure they are all easy to pull together.

It is a little smaller than the last collab because subscribers received the big version. Make sure to subscribe to receive special recipes and collaborations that won’t appear on the blog. If you were already a subscriber on December 27th, then you were given these recipes in advance. The salad dressing post might be of interest since those were not included in the subscribers email.

Order and Notes

No order for this week. The potatoes and salad can be for dinner or lunch. The potatoes make a great leftover if you want to make extra.

If you want leftovers or to eat a particular recipe multiple days, check the amounts and you may need to increase the amount you purchase.

Prep Plan (optional)

  • Prep your smoothie by making freezer bags with the ingredients (besides the nut butter and collagen)

  • Chop spinach in advance and store in fridge

  • Make dressing in advance or in bulk for the week

  • Cook sweet potatoes and just reheat for dinner
