So are you ready for the 3-day detox cleanse? Let’s Start!
The detox diet is divided based on how many times you should eat in a day.
Upon rising, the first thing you should drink is a ginger lemon detox drink. Ginger is a powerful detoxifier and it helps kick-start your metabolism. It also hydrates your body and stimulates the bowel movement. Therefore, drinking it as the first thing in the morning is a win-win situation. To make the ginger lemon drink, add some lemon juice to a glass of water and squeeze the ginger juice into the water. Mix it well and enjoy this drink at room temperature.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and eating a healthy breakfast will keep you energetic throughout the day! Try out the super detox green juice to alkalizing your blood in order to keep bad bacteria and cravings at bay. Juice celery stalks, 1 small cucumber, fresh parsley, kale leaves and 1 apple. Sip it slowly for a healthy kickstart of the day!
Mid Morning Snack
By eating a mid-morning snack, you will have the energy to keep going. Moreover, your mid-morning snack will keep you on the right track. Wash and dice vegetables into small strips and keep them in the fridge to cool them. Have this salad whenever you feel hungry or have the urge to eat something unhealthy.
Eating a healthy lunch will keep your sugar in control while helping you stay fit. Along with vegetables, you can choose to eat salad as it is rich in nutrients. A mix of sea vegetable and sprouts is high in calcium and iodine thus helps you draw toxic out of your body. However, do not pick up salads that have tons of dressing on it as it will only add to your weight. Instead of cream dressing, choose a fresh lemon or extra virgin olive oil dressing.
You can choose to eat activated almonds as your mid-afternoon snack as it will keep you full for a long time. A handful of soaked nuts will form a part of your afternoon snack. Take raw almonds and soak the in water at room temperature along with 1 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt. Leave it overnight and strain it in the morning. If you are not able to finish the nuts in a day, store them in a covered container in the fridge.
While on a detox diet, choose to eat a light dinner. You can opt for a vegetable tonic that helps in restoring alkaline-acid and potassium-sodium balance in the body. To make potassium balance soup, put filtered water, finely chopped zucchini, finely chopped celery stalks, 1 cup green beans chopped, finely chopped tomatoes, and 1 large bunch of parsley finely chopped in a large pot. After bringing the solution to a boil, simmer the gas for about 30 minutes. Serve warm. You can even choose to blend the mixture until it becomes smooth and creamy.
Finish out your detox diet with a cup of calming chamomile tea. This will help calm your body so that you enjoy a restful sleep. Take a cup of boiling filtered water and pour it in a cup. Add the tea bag and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
