Recipes for detox diet

Our recipes for detox diet places an emphasis on juice fasting.

We use vegetable juice fasting because they are loaded with antioxidants and are very alkalizing.

This provides a safe way to cleanse your cells by providing you with an abundance of nutrients that bind to and neutralize toxins.

Your body can absorb these vitamins, minerals, and enzymes much more effectively when you fast because you are resting your body's digestive system during this process.


Preparing for a juicing diet / juicing fast

The length of your planned fast will determine the length of preparation. The longer the fast, the more preparation you should make.

If you decide to go for a one day juice fast not much preperation is required. It does not have to be complicated and should be relatively easy for most people.

If you have never fasted before we suggest you try out a one day fast. As you learn to listen to your body you can slowly add more days in your next fast.

Who should not juice fast?

-Diabetics

-Anyone with advanced cancer

-Children under 18

-Pregnant women

For longer fasts like 3 day to 7 day fasts preparation becomes more important.

We suggest you start eating smaller meals in the days leading up to the detox diet recipes. You should also increase your intake of raw fruits and vegetables during this time.

In the days leading up to the juice fast, reduce your intake of meats and dairy products.

If you can manage to consume up to 80% of your diet leading up to the fast in the form of raw food this will start alkalizing your body which will mean that you will experience fewer detoxification symptoms during the fast.


If you're a big coffee drinker, we suggest you start weaning yourself off and reduce your intake.

This will reduce the caffeine detox symptoms (like withdrawal headaches) you are likely to experience during a longer fast.

It can be very helpful if you have a group of friends who routinely fast.

For longer fasts they can be a great support system to provide encouragement and ideas during your fast.

Also clean up your fridge and kitchen cabinets from any unwanted foods that may tempt you to break your fast.


Shopping list

recipes for detox diet

To prepare for your detox diet recipes you will have to stock up on plenty fresh organic vegetables as well as low-sugar fruits like lemons and limes.

Get yourself plenty apples, a few lemons and a good number of carrots.

The green veggies are very important for your detox recipes so make sure you buy enough-

  • cucumbers,
  • celery stalks,
  • head of broccoli and a
  • bag of spinach, kale and watercress.


In addition we suggest you make sure you have the following supplement available:

  • Wheatgrass powder (unless you have a juicer that can juice wheatgrass and are planning to juice your own).
  • Spirulina powder
  • Probiotic


Do you have the right juicer?

Centrifugal Juicers are the most popular juicers today and generally these juicers are also more affordable.

Centrifugal juicers are good at juicing most fruit and vegetable and can do it at a good speed.

One of the disadvantages of centrifugal juicers is that they are not effective at juicing green leafy vegetables like spinach.

They also have a more difficult time extracting high yields of juice from wheatgrass and parsley and similar grasses and herbs.
