Weight-Loss Tea (Carrot-Daikon Drink)

Today is the first day that I am trying Alicia Silverstone's "Weight Loss Tea" aka "Carrot-Daikon Drink." You are supposed to drink this for 10 days on an empty stomach. However, its not really tea-like... it looks more like a soup, very thick with lots of pulpy carrots and daikon radish. It's not bad when you eat it like soup with the pulp, but I think I would prefer to strain it and just drink the broth. I'm not exactly sure which you are supposed to do - strain it or eat the pulp - but I've heard this recipe is similar to one from the macrobiotic diet and that you should eat and chew the pulp.

I can't say I'm that big of a fan of the pulp... it's a strange texture and just tastes like eating ground carrots.

Today I did not use the nori and I added a lot more shoyu than it says to. The broth is great, but.... I don't think I'll be keeping up with this for 10 days.

What do you think?

Alicia Silverstone's Weight-Loss Tea (Carrot-Daikon Drink)
1/2 c. grated (into a pulp) carrot
1/2 c. grated (into a pulp) daikon
1/4 umeboshi plum
1-2 drops shoyu
1/4 sheet nori, broken into small pieces (optional)

In a saucepot, combine carrot, daikon, umeboshi and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Add shoyu, then simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Add nori, if using, last. Drink hot.

  2. Umeboshi Plum can be hard to find, but try looking at Whole Foods in the Ethinic aisle, they should have it! (By the nori, agar agar, and other sea vegetables. and by the wasabi) if not, check out Eden Food's website.... they have it!

    although you cant really taste the plum, it is in there because it supposedly has medicinal qualities, which is important and makes the tea "magical." but i dont believe its necessary for the weight loss aspect.

    it should look more like just the pulp of both the carrot/radish.. i had to eat mine like soup because it really didnt look much like tea.

  3. If you can't find the umeboshi plum, you can use umeboshi plum paste. Just use 1/4 tsp and it is way cheaper as well.

  4. When she says to eat this for 10 days on an empty stomach, does she mean that's ALL you eat for 10 days?

  5. I've just tried my first "tea", which yes, it's more like a soup but on the raw side because carrot and daicon take longer to cook then less than 10 minutes. Use the plum paste, it's priced more reasonably and anything you use the plum for will be in a paste form when blended or cooked. You should eat your full diet on top of this tea, yes. This tea smells terrible when cooking, my daughter wanted to kill me when she walked through the door. Good luck!

  16. In this day and age it is widely accepted that one may use contemporary styling
    in order to achieve a desired finish. Don't misunderstand this
    to mean that if you have a large yard you can't have smaller
    features or garden decor. With all the best intentions in the
    world, work and family life can leave you with very little time, so
    the garden is always placed at the bottom of the list.
