The best way to start a detox is with a SuperFood Smoothie that features the following:
Banana (for potassium to regulate water in your body)
Papaya (for digestive enzymes)
Raspberries & Strawberries (for vitamin C and fiber)
Broccoli (vitamin C and fiber)
Spirulina and Chlorella (to remove toxins from your body and get more protein)
Ground flax seeds (for protein, fiber and Omega 3 that reduces inflammation. This will also hold the smoothie together and keep it from separating
Ice (To boost metabolism)
Put all of the ingredients in the vitamix, pour in a big glass and enjoy!
Lunch and Dinner will be veggie juices. Snacks are Young Thai Coconut Water and Kombucha. If you get very hungry, have an apple or another high-fiber piece of fruit.
If you don't want to do juice fasts, do a smoothie cleanse. Just make extra servings of them and keep in air-tight containers, such as Ball Jars ($9 for 12 at a grocery store) Flaxseeds will keep the smoothie looking good :)
Cheers to your health!
