A Brief Introduction
A detox diet provides a person with an active way of detoxifying the body. Simply put, the bare fundamentals of such diets are the heightened levels of fiber and water as compared to what a “regular diet” would have. They mostly involve a richer intake of foods such as vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and roots. They also involve a degree of abstinence from caffeine, carbonated drinks, chocolate and, yes, alcohol, too, in order to work to meet the ends they're designed to.
So to speak, a detox recipe is one during which the person engaged in it will benefit from a higher level of necessary antioxidants and substances production.
There is a great number of detox recipes available today.
Dr. Kiki Sidhwa Recommends
A certain Dr. Kiki Sidhwa has got something which may sound a wee bit radical in store for us. Namely, he recommends a monotropic diet after going through a three day fast. What this means is that a person should eat only one kind of fruit per each and every meal. For example, apples for breakfast, oranges for lunch, a glass of grapefruit juice for snacks, and bananas in the evening, and so forth.
Ginger Healing Tea
Another good, somewhat more fluid diet, would include the use of Ginger Healing Tea with turmeric. Here is a list of the ingredients:
2 cups of water
½ teaspoon of powder ginger
½ teaspoon of powder ginger
½ teaspoon of turmeric
1 tablespoon of maple syrup and lemon extract.
The powdered herbs are to be let to simmer in boiling water for about ten minutes. The tea is then to be strained into a mug, when the maple syrup and lemon extract are to be added. It is then to be stirred for a while until it is ready to drink.
Breakfast: The Vegetable Super Juice
… is an excellent breakfast choice because it provides the human body with the energy boost which a lot of us need in the morning. So in a fashion, it is also a good substitute for the early morning brew. This pack of energy may last all the way to lunch time. The ingredients are:
4 celery sticks
2-4 handfuls of spinach
8 lettuce leaves.
The ingredients are then to be simply juiced and then distilled water is to be added. Alternatively, lemon juice may be added – depending on each person's preference.
Lunch: Alkalising Raw Soup
The ingredeints are:
2 spring onions
½ red/green pepper
2 handfuls of spinach
½ clove of garlic
100 ml of light vegetable Bouillon
some lemon/lime juice
optionally: Bragg Liquid Aminos.
The avocado and stock are to be blended and juiced so that they form a light paste. Other ingredients to follow, then followed by a bit more blending.
Dinner: Warm Broccoli Soup
1/3 red onion
a handful of spinach
6-8 broccoli heads
1 inch of root ginger
1 celery stick
Optionally: cumin and bragg liquid.
The broccoli is to be lightly steamed for about five or six minutes. The rest of the ingredients are to be blended after the broccoli has finished cooling. Garlic or pepper may be added according to preference.
