  • 1 large eggplant
  • Splash of marsala cooking wine (not in detox phase)
  • Dried basil
  • Dried thyme
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped baby peppers
  • 2 cups baby snow pea pods
  • ¾ cup raw, shelled hemp seed
  • 2 limes


  1. Cut eggplant into 12 slices (¼”–½” each).
  2. Lay slices in a large saucepan and sprinkle with marsala cooking wine.
  3. Sauté on medium- low heat until soft, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Season with basil and thyme to taste.
  5. In a large bowl, toss spinach, arugula, tomatoes, peppers, pea pods, and hemp seed.
  6. Plate the eggplant and salad. Just before serving, cut each lime in half and squeeze over salads.

What Is the Balance?

Add a plant-based protein shot from Vega One, Warrior Blend, or a low-fat hemp powder (or any brand that passes your protein powder litmus test explained in the clean step of the Detox chapter and in the supplement reference section at that back of this book). Simply take a scoop of the plant-based protein powder, mix it in water, and drink before or along with your meal. This will provide a solid balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat.
