Hippocrates was right - You are what you eat!

Your physical body is the result of what you put into it, but perhaps our thoughts and feelings also reflect what we feed ourselves.

Before we outline the herbal detox diet foods, let’s briefly discuss the damage bad food can do.

Toxic foods

Food Toxicity

Processed food is a major contributor to our toxic load. We all know about smoking, drinking, and drugs causing toxicity and health problems. We also widely accepted that the over-consumption of too much fat and sugar causes metabolic problems like obesity, diabetes, and eventually heart disease.

What we often overlook is the hidden dangers of everyday processed foods in our diet. The simplest processed foods can contain additives that can potentially damage our health.

This very short video shows briefly how food toxicity can affect us.

HERBAL DETOX FOODS

Since modern food is a major source of our toxin build-up, a return to a raw, whole and unprocessed food is an important part of the DETOX program. You will get detailed recipes along with your program, but below is a shortlist of foods I suggest you can use while completing the Ultimate Herbal DETOX.

This page is only a snapshot of the complete diet but it does include many of my favorites.

Detox Juices

Healing Detox Juices


Juice combinations could contain the following: Apple, Beetroot, Capsicum (Bell Pepper), Carrot, Celery, Grape, Ginger, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mango, Noni, Orange, Papaya, Pear, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Tomato, Wheatgrass or Barley Grass.

I recommend getting fresh organic produce and making your own juice but if this is not practical then simply get the best juice you can buy that does not have added sugar. Freshly squeezed juice is best with some of the fiber retained.

Rather than buying or squeezing juice, or even using a juicer, you can simply use a high-speed blender to make a pure fruit smoothie, which is much more nutritious than juice alone.

Detox Smoothies

Healing Detox Smoothies

This is a great way to start your day. Just take your favorite fruit (sorry no bananas as they are too starchy for this program) and fruit juice and add some organic plain yogurt. Throw in some of our BodiTune DETOX ‘n SLIM protein powder for more energy.

I personally like to alternate between Green Smoothies and Berry Smoothies, with the odd Orange and Cacao smoothie thrown in.

DETOX FRUIT SALADS

Detox fruit salads

Try combining different fruit including Oranges, Lemons, Pears, Nectarines, Plums, Peaches, Pineapple, Kiwifruit, Apples, Mangoes, Cherries, Prunes, Apricots, Papaya, Watermelon, all Berries, (no Bananas as they are too starchy).

You can dress your fruit salad with plain unsweetened yogurt (or whipped cream), Dried Blueberries, Dates, or Raisins and sprinkle with Cinnamon.

The simpler the better!

DETOX VEGETABLE SALADS

Detox vegetable salads

These can include Avocado, Basil, Bean Sprouts, Beetroot, Broccoli, Cabbage, Capsicum (Bell Pepper), Carrot, Cauliflower, Celery, Chives, Coriander (Cilantro), Cucumber, Lettuce, Mushrooms, Olives, Parsley, Rocket, Spring Onion, Tomato, and any green leafy vegetable. Dress with Garlic, Yogurt, Lemon Juice, cold-pressed Olive Oil, Pesto, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Herbs.

You could add a little homemade Hummus when doing a gentle detox.

My Favorite in the summer is this Mediterranean Salad 

LIGHTLY STEAMED OR STIR-FRIED VEGETABLES

Detox stir-fry

Any of the vegetables above can be used plus Pumpkin, Parsnip, Eggplant (Aubergine), Zucchini (Courgette, Marrow), Sweet Potato, Mushrooms, Carrot, Leek, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Spinach, Kale, Silverbeet, and Spinach.

Adding herbs and spices into your detox diet really helps your digestion and the elimination of toxins. I particularly recommend Thai, Chinese, and Indian Curry, and Chili dishes.

Try my version of Green Coconut Curry

DETOX SOUPS

Detox soups

Soups are a great way to detox, as you can make a large pot of vegetable soup and have it for three nights running. No meat is allowed but vegetable soups can contain any of the above-mentioned vegetables. They must be made without flour, barley, or split peas. I really like mushrooms, tomatoes or pumpkin soups.

SNACK IDEAS

Detox Snacks

Celery sticks with a little Hummus, Carrot sticks with Guacamole (Avocado and Garlic dip), Asparagus, Cucumber, or Beetroot. Plus Prunes, Dates, Figs, Raisins, Olives, Gherkins, or Pickled Onions are all OK in small amounts.

Fermented and Probiotic Foods 

These are also useful foods to assist digestion, especially if they are organic, sugar-free, and unflavoured.

  • Yoghurt
  • Kefir
  • Saurkraut  

A combination of all of these foods along with the Ultimate Herbal DETOX can relieve your body of years of build-up and help you to lose any excess weight that may also have accumulated.

Keep it simple, pure, and alive and you can’t go wrong.
