Re: Seasalt and MC, alternatives to the traditional break of OJ, Rye crackers, etc.......
Whenever I have done the MasterCleanse (longest 10 days, but usually 3-5 days), I follow the method outlined by Burroughs himself, which others have posted, i.e. Day 1 OJ, Day 2 OJ, broth, Day 3 OJ, broth, soup. I eat the rye wafers as they cause me no problem BUT I always make the following soup which i've adapted from a juicing
recipe suggested by Phllyis and James Balch in their Prescription for Nutrional Healing:
one bunch kale
equal amt. spinach
one yellow onion
6 or seven whole garlic cloves
5 or six small potatoes (both yukon gold & red and by small i mean like fingerling or new potato size OR one could use 1 or 2 full grown potatoes)
1-2 beets (i include the beet greens if they're in good condition)
3 large carrots
1/2 head purple cabbage
1 can diced tomatoes (of course fresh tomatoes could be used)
1/4 bunch parsley
1/2 can of black beans OR 1/4 - 1/2 cup. dried lentils
8 cups of veg stock or water (personally i always use stock over water in soups)
i cut all the veggies in fairly large pieces and let the ones that take longer (carrots, potatoes, turnip, beets, etc.) simmer first for about 15 minutes, then i add everything else as seems fit (adding the spinach last so as not to over cook it). i use very little spice - the last time i used some fresh basil and fresh oregano, but i didn't add salt or pepper.
what i like about this recipe is that it's rich & light simultaneously. it's nutritionally loaded. cabbage is great for tummies and the potatoes, in particular, it's basically a potasium broth, which helps to balance your electrolytes, is alkalizing, and gives you an energy boost. best of all, it's cleansing, so you may be ending the fast, but you're still detoxifying your system. you can add brown rice, quinoa or millet but there's already a lot going on. it does make an enormous pot, but it's tasty enough that others will eat it though they may want to add a little salt to their bowls. but it has stood me well for several years now. every bite feels enriching.
