Whole Living’s Whole Body Detox || Week 3 Plan

Week 3 starts Monday, February 4th. If you’ve been detoxing, keep going strong, you’re in the homestretch. If you missed the last two weeks and would like to try some lighter fare this week and maybe shed a few pounds, join us and give these recipes a go!

You can find everything on Whole Living’s website, but I broke it down a bit here as well.

For a total of 3 weeks we are going to remove/take a break from:

  • Processed Anything (anything that comes from a box or package or has refined ingredients)
  • Added Sugars (honey is okay in small amounts)
  • Dairy
  • Gluten
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee

‘With two full weeks behind you, and, we hope, any negative detox symptoms also relegated to the past, clean eating will start to feel less like a burden and more like a lifestyle. You should feel lighter (you’ve likely dropped a few pounds) and be conscious of the impacts—better digestion, more energy—of a healthy diet.Keep In Mind: Two foods often related to sensitivities reenter the mix this week: soy and eggs. “Eggs are very commonly associated with gut-related digestive symptoms—reflux, gas and bloating, diarrhea, and constipation—so pay close attention,” Blum advises. “This is information-gathering time.”

Add Back: Organic, non-GMO soy (tofu, edamame) and eggs.’ – Whole Living

Movement: Stretch for 5-10 min. every morning upon waking or before bed. Picture of stretches found here + Complete 30 minutes of moderate cardio 3x this week

Every Morning: Drink the Golden Elixir – 1 cup hot water (not boiling or it will destroy nutrients) + 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice + 1/8 tsp. each of fresh, ground turmeric & ginger + a dash of cayenne and raw honey to taste. You can also drink this throughout the day.

Throughout the Day: Drink the Cleansing Broth throughout the day to aid in detoxification. Make a batch at the beginning of each week. Recipe found here.

Snacks: Definitely snack in-between meals. Again, this isn’t about starvation. Keep yourself fueled appropriately, not over, not under. Weeks 1, 2 & 3 Whole Living Snacks found here.

Menu: Louisa Shafia, the author of Lucid Food the popular blog of the same name, brings us each recipe for Week 3. This healthy and refreshing menu will allow you to add back some of the food items that were removed from the previous two weeks and propel you into a lifestyle of clean eating as you go on from here. Rumor has it the baked tofu slabs and Banana-Apple Buckwheat Muffins are fabulous!

Before the week starts: cook a pot of brown rice, bake those tofu slabs, and wash, stem, and tear greens and store them in an airtight container.
