Whole Food Cleanse-Day 8
This morning, I went to the refrigerator, opened it and scanned the shelves and the drawers then closed it without taking anything out.
I then went to the pantry, opened it and looked through the packaged and can food. My gazed stopped at a bag of Tapatio flavored Doritos. Hot sauce flavored Doritos?! My mouth started salivating. I obviously didn’t buy those but I sure would like to sample some right about now. I closed the cupboard door and went outside to the garden to see how my plants were doing.
What to cook today? I needed help so I opened my MacBook and visited a couple of my favorite food blogs for inspiration. Oh She Glows is one of my favorite vegan blogs. The author, Angela recently posted her recipe for Salt and Vinegar Chickpeas. Salt and Vinegar made me think of the Doritos. I had to try these chickpeas! Maybe it would satisfy my craving. Although I have seen several recipes on different blogs, I have never roasted chickpeas before. I started to think about Tapito flavored roasted chickpeas. Yum! I may have to try that sometime.
I preheated the oven and as I was putting in my cookie sheet of chickpeas in, I made an unexpected discovery! A unwashed casserole dish, which thankfully was empty, had been left in there since Christmas! Ugh! After some investigation and thought, I remembered it had been used to bake potato gratin. I guess that will be soaking in my sink for as long as it had been left unwashed. Gross!
While my chickpeas were roasting. I whipped up some breakfast. I was hungry and I was craving some carbs. Since Doritos aren’t allowed on my Whole Food Cleanse, homestyle potatoes are the next best thing! Homestyle Herb Potatoes served with veggie scramble hits the spot!

Super Food Ingredient: Potatoes
- Potatoes are a great source of vitamins B6, C, copper, manganese, potassium and fiber.
- They are full of complex carbohydrates which are essential to getting fit. They provide energy and help the body maintain the muscle it has built.
- Most of the nutrients, fiber and protein are found in the skin of the potato so wash them but don’t peel them.
