August 8 10 day detox

2017-12-15 14.32.56.jpg

We are taking the plunge! We are starting our first family detox!

After several nights out, fatigue, brain fog and too much stress, we determined that it was time to commit. 

  • We have decided to write our own rules for our 10 day real food detox, not surprising I’m sure to anyone who knows me personally. 
  • We will be eliminating gluten (as always), dairy, alcohol, added sugar and meat. 
  • We will be consciously limiting coffee, but will not be eliminating it entirely for the 10 days because well… sanity. 
  • We will be consuming a plant based diet, packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats and greens.
  • We will be increasing our water intake will aid in flushing out our systems and rehydrating our bodies.
  • We will be supplementing with green drinks and herbal teas.

My favorite teas while detoxing are YOGI Peach Detox Tea, Parsley Tea, and Nettle Leaf Tea. All three have amazing healing and cleansing properties. 

Our goal from this cleanse is to come out with a deeper appreciation for how we fuel our bodies. We want to feel re-energized, refreshed and renewed. We are looking to eliminate fatigue, brain fog, toxic foods and stress; all of which take a serious toll on our bodies.

Benefits of Detoxing

Detoxing has recently become a bad word in our culture. People are quick to make judgements and assumptions. I am here to tell you that not all detoxing is bad. In fact I love detoxing. I love fueling my body with wholesome fruits and vegetables, I love the burst of energy, the decrease in inflammation and the vibrancy I feel after I detox. Detoxing becomes “bad” when you are not consuming any vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, or essentially any food for a sustained period of time. There are exceptions to this of course, water fasting and the master cleanse have been used to help rid the body of disease and illness under medical supervision. 

I have been obsessed with green juice for over seven years now. It is a daily item on my meal plan, and something I literally look forward to everyday. Detoxing for me is just an extension of this. Finding something that makes you feel so good, down to your cellular level, and amplifying it. 

I have completed numerous detox and cleanse programs over the years, and I can tell you that not all programs are created equal. When detoxing, it is first important to determine why you want to detox. Suffering from low energy, afternoon lull, digestive problems, autoimmune conditions, or perhaps you over indulged a bit last weekend and have finally decided to clean up your act. Once you have your reason, keep this in mind, it will be your motivation to get through. Decide how long you can honestly commit to detoxing, 3,5,7 or 21 days. Pick a time period that will realistically work for you. Remember you can always extend the detox, but you never want to over commit and leave yourself feeling disappointed. Pick a detox program that works with your lifestyle and will allow you to continue living your life, preferably a real food detox.

There are many concerns clients have about starting a detox. The number one question I receive is will I be in the bathroom for the entire detox? No! Detoxing does not have to be an intense bathroom nightmare. Depending on your typical daily diet, you may not notice any change in your bowel movements.

The idea behind a detox is to give your digestive system a break, let it rest. Decrease the inflammation in your gut, and your overall body. Increase the good bacteria, and flood your body with nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. 

In my new book, Revitalize & Renew, I review the importance of detoxing, how to ease in and ease out of your detox safely. I provide you with a set by step guide to my seven day real food detox program. The best part about this detox program is that it is achievable and reasonable. You can choose to start by simply adding in 1 smoothie or juice per day, then in a week or so maybe you do a 24 hour detox, then a few months later you do 3 days etc… working your way up to the full seven days. (disclaimer: for full benefit it is recommended that you complete all 7 days) Revitalize & Renew is packed with healthy recipes and real food options. Even choosing to start slow and add 1 smoothie or juice in per day will help your body achieve a more alkaline state, and get your energy flowing!
