This is my recalibrating meal. Everytime I’m feeling off – usually after eating too many things I should have eaten in moderation – I make this meal, and the next day I’m all right again. The concept of a recalibrating meal is not entirely mine. I borrowed it from Sarah Wilson. She mentions this concept in one of her books. I love the idea of having a meal you can turn to when you’re in need of a quick reset. Unfortunately, her meal did not work for me. At all. With the knowledge I have gained in the past year that turned out to be not that big of a surprise. The main ingredients are fennel, asparagus, and apple. All of which I can better avoid. Or at least not combine with each other.
I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t come up with my own version of a recalibrating meal: chili & lime chicken paired with avocado, tomato, sweet potato, coconut yogurt, and iceberg lettuce. Since I created it, I have made it countless times. At least once a week for the past couple of months. Just because it’s delicious, simple to make, and easy on my body. But even if you can eat everything in the world, I would recommend you’d give it a try.
Just a quick note at the end: just like Sarah’s recalibrating meal didn’t work for me, mine might not work for you. Just listen to what your body needs, and go look for one. It’s truly a lifesaver to have something in your repertoire that makes you feel better.
