Day 5: 21 Day Detox Roasted Corn Lettuce Wraps

It’s Day 5 and before we get started I must explain some questions that have arisen by the Detox community.

O.K. not a real community, it was just one person, but hey…one person or 500 people it’s all the same thing…lol

A foodie friend of mine wanted to know is she’s still suppose to juice, although I made my

Spicy Thai Broccoli Stir Fry yesterday?

The answer is YES…you should be juicing everyday…when I show food, and if you choose to cook,  that should replace one or both of your daily salads.

If you’re one of those people who prefer to go fully raw…then eat the salads people…cooking is optional…

My Roasted Corn Lettuce Wraps is one of those easy swap out the meat meals I told you about yesterday.

I make this as a salad with shrimp or grilled chicken for the husband. I also make it meatless for me. 
You can also top it with some Mexican cotija cheese for added flavor. 

If you don’t want it spicy, omit the Serrano chili or at least remove the seeds from the chili.

I know I showed a lot of pictures, that’s because I am hungry, and I am ready to eat!

This is a quick, simple, and flavorful dish, that I promise, even the biggest meat eater will enjoy!
