I love a great bowl for this very reason, and I wouldn’t have thought that I would get to eat such a meal during the detox cleanse. That’s the trick to this program, though – you don’t feel like you’re being cheated out of pleasure while you put your health first!

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups filtered water (for quinoa)
  • 2 15 oz cans of adzuki beans (I use Eden Organics)
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 limes, freshly juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon (heaping) cumin
  • 2 Haas avocados, sliced
  • 2 Small handful of cilantro, chopped


  • Cook quinoa by combining 2 cups of filtered water with 1 cup of quinoa in a pot over high heat. When the water comes to a boil, cover the pot and turn heat down to the lowest setting for 30 minutes.
  • While quinoa is cooking, open the cans of beans, thoroughly rinse and drain, and pour into a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in the onions, lime juice, garlic, and cumin and let avors combine for 10-15 minutes.
  • When quinoa is done cooking, put quinoa into individual serving bowls. Top with beans, avocado, and cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
