The Most Energizing Pre-Fashion Week Cleanse

It starts in 7 days. Here's a full meal plan from our friends at bonberi to get you geared up.

In case you guys hadn't already noticed, we're in serious preparation mode. We compared situating ourselves for fashion month to training for a marathon, and with the amount of mind space it all takes up, we really weren't even joking. For real though: fashion month is a biannual run-around that, should you actually be heading to the shows or approaching the festivities in the least, will get the best of you, no matter how many coordinated outfits you've created around your brand new Simone Rocha brogues. In an effort to make as much as we can of the next week, our gal pals over at bonberi have crafted a pre-fashion madness meal plan that will boost our energy while simultaneously aiding with the whole fitting-into-discount-samples thing for the pleasure of Tommy Ton's lens. Read on, and then eat up.

Dear The Coveteur,
As summer comes to a close (sigh), we are savoring the last few days of bottomless glasses of rosé and plates piled high with barbecue. But with fashion week around the corner, it’s time to get back on the proverbial grind. Enter: Our pre-fashion month meal plan. To help kick off a new season of seemingly endless shows, booze-fueled fetes and trans-continental flights that inevitably leave you feeling drained, bloated and jonesing for greens, we designed a weeklong meal plan specifically tailored to keep you balanced, satisfied and full of vitality. A bit heartier than our summer steez, this week we emphasize seasonal vegetables, clean protein and proper food-combining to ensure high energy while keeping you lean and mean for that Jason Wu slipdress if you so desire. Enjoy!
With Love,
Nicole & Vanessa of bonberi


General Guidelines

1. STAY HYDRATED.  Yes, this means lugging an extra-giant Fiji in your Margiela tote as well as liquids loaded with minerals and electrolytes. (Read: unpasteurized watermelon juice, raw coconut water and aloe-infused water.)

2. SIT AND DINE. Eating on the go may be great for time management but not so great for the digestive system. If you’re making your own meal plan, stick to fruit and vegetable-based juices and smoothies for breakfast, light salads for lunch and a properly combined dinner (i.e. separate meat and starches.) 

3. KEEP SNACKS FRESH AND ALKALINE. Essential digestive enzymes throughout the day will avoid those sugar spikes and keep circulation flowing. (Think: fresh fruit, crudite and green salads—yes, salads can be snacks!)

4. A NOTE ON NUTS. They can be nutritious but only in moderation and don’t forget to soak them overnight. When sprouted, they become easier to digest. (Tip: Store them in a small Ziploc for when your home base becomes the backseat of an Uber trekking between Lincoln Center and Milk Studios.)

5. TO JAVA LOVERS, don’t fret, we won’t steal your daily iced Americano. Just remember with every cup of joe, balance it with two glasses of water, ideally with lemon to boost alkalinity. (Same goes for wine and spirits.) Also skip the additives like milk and sugar and drink it alone, at least 30 minutes before eating and never after a meal. Kiss that Hotel Costes post-lunch espresso adieu.

6. LEARN TO LOVE YOUR NUTRIBULLET. Our on-the-go smoothie secret weapon, it’s small enough to fit in your Rimowa roller and won’t bust a socket when schlepping through London, Milan and Paris—just pack the right converter. 

7. PACKING ESSENTIALS. We never leave home without these healthy defence supplements and you shouldn’t either: Dr. Ohira Probiotics, SunChlorella, Mag07 Magnesium Capsules and Ginger Yogi Tea.

4 garlic cloves, smashed
1 lemon, sliced thin
1 lemon, quartered
Sea salt/fresh cracked black pepper

Heat grill. (If you don't have a grill, pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and roast for 20-25 minutes or until fish is opaque and flaky.)

While oven/grill is heating, stuff snapper with half of the herb, garlic, and lemon slices. Score the fish with a sharp knife diagonally (similar to picture above). Add the mixture of the herb, garlic and lemon slices into the crevices. Do the same on the other side. Drizzle the entire fish (both sides) with olive oil. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper.

If using grill, place fish directly onto grill and wait 5 minutes (do not touch the fish or it will stick.) After five minutes, using an oiled spatula, flip fish and cook for another five minutes. Continue to do the same, cooking for five minutes and flipping until flesh is opaque and flaky, about 20 minutes total.

Lunch

AVOCADO SUMMER ROLLS WITH NUOC CHAM SUACE

Swap sliced steamed kabocha squash for carrots in recipe

Makes 6-8 servings
2 avocados, sliced
½ lime
1 seedless cucumber, julienned
2 large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 bunch cilantro, trimmed of bottom third coarse stems
1 cup loosely packed mint leaves
1 cup loosely packed basil leaves
Twelve 16cm rice paper spring roll skins
Nuoc Cham Sauce (recipe follows)


Heat several cups of water in a kettle until just shy of boiling. Pour the water into a baking dish so it comes up the sides about 1/4 inch. Keep the remaining kettle water handy.


Two at a time, dip the spring roll skins into the warm water to coat on both sides, shaking off any excess. Immediately remove to a large cutting board or clean work surface. Wait about 30 seconds for the skins to soften. Then arrange 2 avocado slices, 2 cucumber spears, and 2 carrot spears in the middle of the spring roll paper, parallel to the edge of your cutting board. On top, place a few sprigs of cilantro and a small handful of basil and mint leaves. Fold in the sides of the wrapper lengthwise - you should have about an inch on either end to play with. Then fold over the flap closest to you. Pull that flap tight around the vegetable pile so it seals with the paper on the other side. Then roll the whole thing up. You should have a tight package. 


Cut each roll in half and serve alongside peanut or nuoc cham sauce.

3 organic sweet potatoes

4 slices of Ezekiel bread
1 yellow onion
Harissa Sauce (adapted from Sprouted Kitchen):
2 cups parsley – de-stemmed
2 cups mint – de-stemmed
2 cups cilantro – de-stemmed
juice of 1 lemon
4 small jalapeno peppers – seeds removed and chopped
3 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
olive oil

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel skin off sweet potatoes.

Set aside.

Slice two sweet potatoes into one inch rounds. Toss them lightly in coconut oil and salt and pepper. Cover a baking sheet with a light layer of coconut oil. Lay the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet with enough space between them.

Place the baking tray and the foil wrapped sweet potato in the oven. Turn the slices of potato over after 30 min and let cook for approx. 1 hr total until brown and slightly crisp on the tops and bottoms. Remove and set aside.

While potatoes are cooking, slice the onion into rings and lightly grease a frying pan with olive oil. Cook onion until caramelized – golden brown and soft, approximately 15 minutes.

Toast slices of Ezekiel Bread. Assemble the sandwich by applying a thick layer of harissa sauce to once slice of bread, then add in rounds of sweet potato- approx. 4 per sandwich – top with onions and the other slice of bread. Cut sandwich on a diagonal and enjoy!

 

HARRISSA SAUCE: Add the parsley, mint, cilantro, garlic, jalapenos and lemon juice to a food processor. Add in about ¼ cup of olive oil and begin to blend. Continue to blend adding olive oil in as needed. Consistency should be that of a relish. Season with salt and pepper as needed. *for even more heat in your sauce, add in another jalapeno. Stores in fridge in air tight container for approx. 2 weeks.


FOR BABY JACK: Wrap one of the sweet potatoes in about a 10x10 square of tin foil. Repeat this step. Let it cook for approx. 1 hour or until it is soft when you press in. Carefully open the tin foil and let the potato cool slightly. Place the potato on a plate and with a fork mash the entire potato flat. Continue to let cool. Once cool, store the smashed potato either in small air tight containers in the fridge or you can fill an ice cube tray with the potato, cover with foil and freeze for future use.
