Detox, Here We Come

Thanks for tuning in tonight! I captured our detox kickoff via FB Live, too, so you can grab a replay over here.

In preparation for our March 10-16 Year of Tranquility detox, I’ve been focused on gathering all the staples and starting the weaning process (see ya sugar and processed foods). I’m excited to go through this with you.

Remember,  five days, three days, one day, or one meal is better than nothing, so give it your all and know this isn’t easy (as previously shared 7-day Detox Diaries, a podcast about it, and a blog post).

Below is a recap of the notes, tips, and tools.

PREPARATION FOR OUR 7-DAY DETOX:

1. Review the basic food plan and pick up these staples: brown rice, fresh and/or frozen veggies, kale, spinach, frozen fruit (for smoothies), avocados, chia seed, ground flax seed, lemon, raw nuts, veggie stock for soups, herbal tea, nut butters, gluten-free whole grains, veggie soup, hummus.
2. Start weaning off the sugar and caffeine. I know, I know!
3. Start upgrading your eating to include five servings of fruit and veggies each day.
4. Gather and schedule your self-care: journal, tongue scraper, bath supplies, dry skin brush, exercise, massage.
5. Schedule time for food shopping and prep before Saturday.
