Joshi's Holistic Detox - Day 5

Food so far today:

- hot water with fresh lemon juice
- Rice Krispies with rice milk, honey and a banana
- California Classic salad from Fresh

Tonight I will have the leftover chicken I made the other night.

Last night I made fresh vegetable juice again, this time with carrots, ginger and spinach. I find that when you put a lot of carrot in there, it makes everything else much more palatable. The juicer seems to require a lot of effort to take apart and rinse out, but in reality it takes less than five minutes and I'm just being a baby if I don't use it for that reason.

I've been feeling motivated to try out new recipes, and have already made two this week: the chicken and this coconut tofu and rice. I've got a chickpea recipe in mind that I want to try this weekend. I've also discovered a good beverage option for when I'm craving something other than water. Fruity herbal tea on ice is delicious and detox-friendly.

For snacks, I've been munching on rice cakes, snow peas, bananas and the odd gluten-free cookie (sweetened with cane juice).

No problems to report so far.

Hey, I am wondering where you were able to find a list of foods on what you can and can not eat on this detox. I have been unsuccessful on finding a list! I don't have the book but still want to do this detox!

Hi there,
You should definitely get the book before you do the detox. I don't have it anymore (I borrowed it from a friend) but I certainly think it's necessary to have it if you want to do the detox right. I'm sure you can get it at the library if you don't want to buy it. Good luck!

Thanks so much!!! I am definitely going to look at the library tomorrow for it! Hopefully it goes well :)
