Cleansing the body through nutrition

Cleansing the body through nutrition

Detoxing the body through natural substances like vegetables and fruits is the best way to eliminate wastes and toxins and to nourish your body at the same time. Juicing is the perfect and most popular way to ensure both of these can happen.

One of the rules you should apply to yourself before you start on any detoxifying diet is to aim for less toxins, chemicals, and unpure substances.

Be aware of what’s really in our food and take a better look at ingredients when making a trip to the grocery store. What we ingest, and breath in our daily life is more toxic and more crucial to control than most people believe. This is why taking steps to ensure you get the nutrition you need is the only way to live a healthy life.

Aim for organic or locally grown produce and drink LOTS of water and herbal teas while detoxing.
Avoid foods with saturated fats such as fried foods and avoid dairy as much as you can, your detox does not need these and will work better without them.
If you are going to have meat or poultry aim for extra lean and organic as this reduces the amount of fat and ups the health value.

Breakfast : A glass of any fruit juice


Choose any healthy smoothie (no protein powders, just fresh blended & juiced raw produce) or raw soup recipe

If you are still hungry have a vegetable salad or raw vegetable sticks (carrots, celery)


Green drink (salad leaves blended with water) or freshly juiced green veggie: cucumber, parsley, spinach, kale, celery, green saladAdd lemon, ginger or mint to enhance flavor

About 1 ½ hours before dinner

Water or herbal tea with lemon

Dinner :

 Vegetable salad with a lemon and olive oil dressing (no croutons or cheese- only vegetables. For variety add olives, sundried tomatoes, capers and herbs)Vegetable broth

Night- Before Bed : 

Chamomile or peppermint tea

Follow this diet for up to a week for a general detoxification of your body. A 3 day detox diet is enough for a short cleanse but 7 days is ideal. You’ll even find you might lose weight and have a great amount of energy. Switch up the juices, smoothies and salads for variety!

This is only one of the million recipes out there to try, look around, explore and see which ones suit you and please you best. Good luck!
