Meal 3: 2 PM
Tom Kha Gai Soup
My girlfriend Dawn introduced me to this delicious Thai dish. I chose this Thai soup for Meal 3 because not only is it extremely tasty, but it also does wonders cleaning out the colon. It’s a little bit of work to prepare, I’m not gonna lie, so you can go ahead and make a week’s worth in advance to make things easier. Alternatively, you can just pick it up at a Thai restaurant near you if you can’t be bothered. If you have any questions on where to find any of these ingredients, contact me and I will give you a list of grocery stores that should carry them in your area. The key ingredient is the Thai chilies. If you can not handle HOT, don’t add any more than five chilies.
Tom Kha Gai Soup Recipe Ingredients
- 400 grams chicken (2 organic chicken breasts)
- 6 cups coconut milk (If you use a can or box of coconut milk, you might want to add some water to make it less thick)
- 1 thumb chunk of galangal
- 3 stalks of lemongrass
- 1 big white onion (or 2 small white onions)
- 2 tomatoes
- 6 kaffir lime leaves
- 200 grams of oyster mushrooms (2 big handfuls)
- 5 – 10 Thai chilies
- ½ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
- 4 tablespoons of lime juice
- 1/2 bunch of cilantro
Tom Kha Gai Soup Directions
- Take a thumb sized chunk of galangal, cut off the stems, and cut the root part into thin slices. It can be a little tough, so you might have to hit the top of your knife with your palm.
- Grab your lemongrass, slice off the bottoms, pull off the outer skin layer, and then slice it diagonally into about 1 inch strips. This is just going to help release its amazing fragrance.
- Turn on your stove to medium heat, and add about 3 cups (or ½) of the coconut milk to a medium sized saucepan. Put the pot on the heat and immediately toss in the sliced galangal and lemongrass.
- As your coconut milk begins to heat, move back over to your cutting board and slice up the chicken. I used 2 chicken breasts for this recipe. Slice the chicken into medium sized chunks – they can be kind of big in size.Just before the coconut milk comes to a boil, add the chicken, and then add the other remaining 3 cups of coconut milk. Now, turn down the heat to a medium low, as you don’t want the coconut milk to heat too fast or burn.
- Prepare your Thai chilies by peeling off the stems and then just slice them diagonally. Go ahead and add them directly to the soup. Give the soup a quick stir, and then add about 200 grams of oyster mushrooms (it was about 2 handfuls for me).
- Your coconut milk should not boil, but just maintain a nice low heat. Because coconut milk is so delicate, when you stir, be sure to move your spoon in 1 direction only, otherwise you run the risk of the coconut milk getting too shaken and it will start to curdle. Be gentle with the coconut milk.
- Move back over to your cutting board and peel and slice 2 small white onions into thick wedges (if your onion is really big, just use one). Immediately toss the onions into the soup.
- Cut your tomatoes in the same way as your onions, into thick wedges. Wait until your tom kha gai is just about to boil, and then add the tomatoes.
- Take the kaffir lime leaves, break them with your hand, and toss them directly into the soup. Breaking the kaffir lime leaves is going to release their flavor.
- Add about ½ teaspoon of sea salt to begin with…(taste to add more)
Mix your tom kha gai slowly and gently, for about 5 – 10 minutes, making sure it doesn’t come to a full boil – and if it does – turn down the heat to even lower. You want the chicken, onions, tomatoes, and other ingredients to be fully cooked, but you don’t want to overcook the coconut milk.
- After about 5 -10 minutes of cooking, go ahead and turn off the heat completely.
- Go back to your cutting board, slice up a handful of fresh cilantro, and add it to the soup. Give it a quick stir, and the cilantro will cook enough from the already hot soup.
- Juice a couple of limes into a separate bowl and then add about 4 tablespoons of lime juice and a few wedges to the Tom Kha Gai. Again, just give it a quick and gentle stir, and it’s ready to be served.
Make sure you do some taste-testing to make sure it’s salty and sour enough. You may need to add a little extra salt or lime juice to get the flavor you want.

“There are hundreds of different types of detoxes out there, but which one is best for me?”
I get bombarded with this million dollar question so often that I decided to share what always works for me. Now, there is no need to search any further because I have just laid out your plan of attack, concluding with my final meal of the day. If you want to implement this strategy into your toxic lifestyle, I recommend one entire week of this protocol. . . if you can go two, that’s even better.
Notice it’s only Day #2. Day #1 is your coffee enema. Day #2 – Day #8 will be this meal plan repeated every day for seven straight days. Good luck!!
The less “sick posts” I see from ya’ll, the happier I will be. . . The ball is in your court.
