Detox Diet Plan
Whilst detoxifying it is important to eat as lightly as possible to take the load of your digestive system and allow your liver to do it’s job of filtering toxins.
We recommend that around 80% of your foods be raw, consisting of fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, salads, smoothies, nut pastes, vege dips, sundried fruits and sprouted breads (Essene bread).
The other 20% of your diet can consist of steamed veges, soups, broths, casseroles, curries, stir fries, cooked lentils and legumes.
Grains should be whole, unrefined and wheat-free and may include: brown rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, oats, barley, rye, spelt, amaranth, kamut, and polenta.
Make sure you drink a minimum of 6-8 glasses of pure filtered water daily and as many other fluids as possible such as fresh fruit and vege juices, herbal teas (such as dandelion, green, lemon, ginger, peppermint teas) and miso broths.
Start each day with half a lemon squeezed into a glass of warm water to help flush your liver and kidneys. You can also try 2 tsps of apple cider vinegar in water or organic apple juice instead. Try to have at least 2 glasses of fresh fruit/vege juices daily-choose from the list below.
These fluids will all help to flush out the toxins and reduce any side effects.
