A lot of folks, myself included, are doing cilantro smoothies. The recipes vary. Mine is:
Unsweetened coconut milk
Vegan protein powder
Tablespoon of almond butter
1 bunch of cilantro
A cup of spinach
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 cup of raspberries
I’m not saying this will be for everyone but I also just finished a 30-day detox guided by my functional medicine doctor, including 3-days of a fasting-mimicking diet. I had to drop gluten years ago but have also eliminated all refined sugar, dairy, and grains. It’s not purely paleo but skews 75% vegetables with generous servings of protein, oils/fats (avocado, olive, coconut), protein (I avoid beef but not bison), legumes, and some nuts/seeds and fruit.
Generally, this takes will power. But I feel good, my athletic performance hasn’t dipped, and it certainly isn’t making things worse. I only have fading brownish, flat pigmented spots and a few tiny brownish crusty ones. Is it just fading on its own or is the cilantro and my diet working? Only time will tell.
Oh yeah — and Grover’s itches. Except when it doesn’t. Mine does not. It seems to be a personally-specific problem and everyone needs to find what works best for them.
