I recently made a Detoxifying Coconut Miso Soup during one of my healthy eating segments on More Good Day Oregon. Click below to see me make this recipe step-by-step…
The Inspiration Behind Detoxifying Coconut Miso Soup
Let’s face it.
It’s not like you’re never going to eat pizza again.
And it’s not like I’m never going to eat a single french fry ever again.
Sure, we aim to eat a lot less of that stuff, and certainly less frequently. But sometimes pizza happens. And beer and wine. And salted caramel.
And it usually happens on a weekend, right?
Maybe you plan on taking one innocent little cheat day — or a cheat meal for that matter— and then the next thing you know, that little cheat snowballs into a lost weekend filled with unhealthy choices.
So what do we do after a lost weekend?
For starters, we nip things in the bud come Monday. We get centered and focused, and keep that lost weekend from becoming a lost week… or weeks… or months.
Here’s one of my favorite practices for making healthier habits happen in the real world.
I like to call it Make-Good Monday. And the beauty of this practice is that you can make it happen any day of the week.
Basically, you want to:
- Wake up and meditate. Flood your week with (healthy) intention. The Headspace app is a great place to start.
- Get some exercise.
- Eat a healthy breakfast, and a satisfying salad for lunch.
- Eat a light, healthy dinner.
- Go to bed early enough so you can get 7+ hours of sleep.
So you might be wondering, “what should I make for dinner?”
You want something simple, because chances are you’re feeling kind of burned out and low-energy after an indulgent weekend.
Something that can be made in one pot, because easy clean-up is appreciated on any day of the week.
That’s where this Detoxifying Coconut Miso Soup comes in. It’s dairy free, gluten free, plant-based, restorative — and most importantly, delicious!
But why take my word for it? Here’s what my friend Christy had to say about it:
“I made your Miso soup yesterday! that is the BEST!!!!! and so easy! THX!”
