When I need to detox, the first thing I do is change my diet. If you feel sluggish, need/want to lose weight, deal with bloating, gas or other digestive issues, it might be time for a detox. This is my strategy for feeling healthier through a healthy eating detox.

And the recipe for the dressing is here: http://bit.ly/2FhqUjg
Before Breakfast: A large mug (about 6-8 ounces), of warm water with fresh ginger root, lemon, and 1/4 tsp baking soda. The lemon and ginger are cleansing, and the baking soda makes the drink alkaline.
Breakfast: A large 16- 32-ounce smoothie containing the following ingredients: 2 cups of greens (dandelion greens and spinach), 1/2 lemon (peeled and deseeded), 1/2 banana, 1-2 pitted dates, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed, 1/4 tsp Ceylon cinnamon (optional), 16-32 ounces of filtered water. 1/2 cup crushed ice.
Lunch: A large salad full of mainly raw veggies* including watercress, shredded cabbage, fermented veggies, etc. I try to eat the colors of the rainbow to get in all the different nutrients. I also add a whole grain and some starchy veggies for energy and gut health. And I dress with a delicious Vegan Ranch Dressing (see below). *If you have severe digestive issues, you might want to omit the raw veggies, and opt for a veggie soup instead because the raw veggies may be hard for you to digest.
Dinner: I love a “macrobiotic” bowl. This is usually a bowl that contains the following food groups: Brown rice/millet/quinoa, steamed dark leafy greens, a steamed squash, black beans, fermented veggies. I always use a delicious dressing to make it tasty (see Turmeric Dressing below).
Beverages: I try to cut down on caffeine, except organic green tea. I add 1 tsp of liquid Chlorophyll to an 8 ounce of water once or twice a day. And I try to sip on CCF tea.
