Whole Living’s Whole Body Detox || Week 2 Plan

Whole Living's 2013 Whole Body Detox Week 2 | Freshly Grown

Week 2 starts Monday, January 28th. Don’t worry if you’re coming in late, you can still jump on board with this week’s recipes or start week 1 when you’re ready. If your diet could use a little sprucing up, then join us! You can find everything on Whole Living’s website, but I broke it down a bit here as well.

For 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

Week 2

‘As you begin to see results from this uber-pure diet (are you springing out of bed in the morning yet?), connect with the way your body is feeling. Notice what happens when you welcome back fish, legumes, and gluten-free grains. Removing food for just a week is long enough to cause a reaction. Watch for food hangovers.

KEEP IN MIND Detox is personal. The worst days should be behind you, but it depends on how toxic you are. (No, we’re not kidding.) If you’ve done a detox recently, you should feel great by now, with your mood and energy levels improving each day. If you still feel crummy, consider sticking  with the guidelines from the first week until symptoms improve.’ – Excerpt from Whole Living Magazine

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: Sara Forte, the author of The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook and the popular blog of the same name, brings her everyday healthy cooking credo to the plan this week, with gluten-free whole grains like quinoa and brown rice and heartier proteins like wild Alaskan salmon and sardines. Coming off last week’s light fare, you’ll begin to build back your strength and feel satisfied. Many of Forte’s dishes are interchangeable (her baked sweet potato, for example, works as breakfast or lunch). Cook the grains and make the big-batch kale salad ahead.
