Cookies and cream shake

When we built the Life Time D.TOX program, we wanted participants to have the right tools to support a healthy, full-body detox without feeling deprived from food. There’s a team of dietitians at our corporate office who are consistently in recipe-development mode, creating tasty meal solutions that are both hypoallergenic and provide ample protein — both of which are imperative to supporting the body’s detoxification process.

With our January 11 class quickly approaching, I thought it’d be fun to share some of our most popular D.TOX recipes. Whether you’re joining the class or simply in need of some new recipes, utilize the below ones to help kick off 2021 as your healthiest year yet.

Cookies and cream shake

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato

Makes four servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 4 hours

Buffalo chicken sweet potato

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbs. green onions (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix the hot sauce and coconut oil together with a whisk.
  2. Add the chicken to a slow cooker. Pour the hot sauce and coconut oil mixture over the chicken so it’s fully covered. Cook on high for four hours, checking occasionally to make sure the chicken is still covered in sauce.
  3. When there’s an hour left on the chicken’s cook time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. After scrubbing and cleaning the sweet potatoes, pierce and place in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. After four hours, shred the chicken using a fork. It should shred easily. If not, continue heating in the slow cooker.
  5. Create four equal portions with the chicken. Cut the sweet potatoes in half and top each half with chicken and green onion if desired.

Brownie Bites

Makes 12 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes freezer time

Brownie bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 8 total)
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

 Directions

  1. Add the dates to a food processor and mix until blended. Add in the cashews and continue to blend until you see speckles of cashews; be careful not to blend too much or the mixture will become too oily.
  2. Add the cacao powder and vanilla extract and blend minimally to combine. This will form a “ball” in the food processor. The mixture will be sticky — this is OK.
  3. Use a tablespoon to roll the mixture into 12 equal-sized balls. Or, you can also line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper, spread the mixture equally across the pan, and lay an additional piece of parchment paper over the top to smooth out the surface.
  4. Freeze for one hour. If you used a pan, cut into 12 equal-sized pieces. Keep frozen or refrigerate until ready to eat.

Keep the conversation going.
