How will these foods cleanse and energize you?

Protein, be it plant based or animal, is the building block of your muscles. Protein also helps people achieve satiety.

Detox Soup is brimming with important nutrients and fiber to boost immunity, improve digestion, lower blood sugar levels, detoxifying the body, improve respiratory health and stimulate weight loss.

Avocado Fennel Salad is a great liver cleanser with powerful antioxidants.

Organic Cottage Cheese and Greek yogurt contains high amounts of protein and healthy bacteria to help strengthen the digestive tract.

Fenugreek tea helps remove toxins from the body.
Ginger Lemon tea helps soothe pain from inflammation and improve overall skin health.

Olive oil and Lemon juice acts as a digestive enzyme. This will exercise the liver and gallbladder, while supporting healthy bile flow in the bile and pancreatic ducts. (May continue for up to 1 month) Adapted from John Doulliard

Feel free to continue w/ detox meal plan, gradually adding 3-4 oz protein at lunch & dinner with salad, veggies and small amount of gluten free grains like quinoa or millet. Check out our delicious, healthy, nutrient dense recipes on our website to keep you feeling good all year!
