Detox: What to Eat

Back to Week 1

Drink a cup of warm water with the juice of 1/4 lemon, which stimulates the liver and helps release digestive enzymes. 

Have a cup of hot oatmeal with a cup of fruit and 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon. Drink a cup of green or black tea, if you wish. 

Midmorning Snack
If you're hungry, eat an organic apple or pear and 10 unsalted raw almonds. 

Eat a cup of legumes (lentils, split peas, beans, chickpeas), a cup of cooked brown rice or quinoa, and a cup of steamed vegetables (include the Brassica family, such as broccoli). For flavor, saute onion, garlic, ginger, and turmeric in a teaspoon of olive oil and add to food, but avoid salt. Drink a cup of digestion-boosting ginger or spice tea. 

Midafternoon Snack
If you're hungry, eat celery and carrot sticks with 2 tablespoons of hummus. 

Steam 2 cups of mixed vegetables; eat with a cup of brown rice. Use the same flavorings as lunch. Drink a cup of ginger tea. 

Before Bed
Drink a cup of warm water with lemon. Be in bed by 10 p.m.
