One of the problems with diets is that people think of them as temporary. You change your habits for a few weeks, lose some weight, and then can go back to the way life used to be. This is probably the reason diets don’t work. This detox isn’t supposed to be one of those temporary fixes—it’s a kick in the butt to change the way you eat.
1 yellow bell pepper
6 jalapenos, seeded
1 tablespoon cumin
1/4 of whole fresh pineapple
1/4 cup cilantro
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
This is a quick and easy entree for those short on time and craving a good meal. When I cook I like to keep in mind that I am cooking for dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow. This helps not only with decreasing my portion size, but it stretches the dollar a little further. To ensure you don’t eat your lunch early, immediately set aside however many portions you will need to save for later. From this recipe, you will get 4-5 servings, a perfect amount when preparing dinner and lunch for two.
