Food inspired by Juice Fast - delicious!

I'm a reasonably solid experimenter (e.g., nothing is ever Bad), but I was totally surprised by how terrific this came out. As most folks know, the Juice Fast is a drink comprising water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup. This strange concoction is somehow satisfying. Here's how I subverted the juice fast:

- Thick pork loin chops with lemon juice, cayenne pepper, maple syrup, and sea salt judiciously applied; baked at 350 and reapplied seasoning after a midway flip.
- Sauteed onion, sweet bell pepper, and green beans in a dab of butter. Mixed with maybe 2 cups of steamed rice (chinese food leftovers).
- Boiled one can of coconut milk with maybe 1/3 cup maple syrup (this was eyeballed) and then stirred into the vegetable rice mix.

Yum, yum. Anyone else with strange dinner inspirations that would be fun to try?
