Detox

After a long holiday weekend, it is a nice idea to detox after loading up on all the picnic foods and junk that you “cheated” on your regular diet with. So what plan works for me? I prefer a slow process over the course of a week. We could all use a reset button after letting go for a few days.

Monday: Start off the week increasing your water intake [include water based soups as meals], cut back on sugars, drink at least 1 cup wellness tea [herbal]  and at the end of the day take a detox bath to start to release the toxins.

Prep detox water overnight in a large pitcher. Slice 1 cucumber, and 1 lemon= add to 10 cups of filtered water. Steep overnight!!!

Tuesday: Drink all the detox water!

Breakfast Smoothie: 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 cup blueberries

1 cup ice

1tbsp peanut or almond butter

 

Snack: 1 cup sliced cucumbers and 1 cup green tea

 

Lunch: Unlimited raw or steamed greens

4 oz lean protein such as a half chicken breast

2 tsp oil of your choosing [whisk with apple cider vinegar to make a dressing]

 

Snack: 10 blanched asparagus spears

1 cup green tea

 

Dinner: 

Unlimited raw or steamed greens

4 oz lean protein such as a half chicken breast

2 tsp oil of your choosing  [whisk with apple cider vinegar to make a dressing]

 

Wednesday: Repeat Tuesday including the detox water 

 

Thursday: 

Breakfast: Detox smoothie of your choice

snack: Cucumber slices

Lunch: Unlimited raw or steamed greens

Snack: Berries and a banana

4 oz lean protein such as a half chicken breast

2 tsp oil of your choosing  [whisk with apple cider vinegar to make a dressing]

Dinner: Balanced dinner with herbal tea

 

Friday: Repeat Thursday. Lunch: Water based soup of your choosing. Detox bath.

Make sure in between you are getting plenty of water!!!
