Kick start your New Year with a 3-day smoothie detox.  It’s 3 days of raw fruits and veggies to alkalize and detox our overworked systems.  Think of them as nutrition baths for your cells:)

The Plan

Monday – Day 1

Morning:

  • Morning Tea 1 bag green tea, 1 slice lemon, 1 tsp. stevia (optional)
  • Raspberry Energy Smoothie
  • ½ multi vitamin, probiotic supplement

Midday:

  •  Green Detox Smoothie
  • ½ multi vitamin, fish oil supplement
  • Yogi Detox tea or hot water with lemon (optional)

Afternoon:

  • Raspberry Energy Smoothie
  • Yogi Detox tea or hot water with lemon (optional)

Evening:

  • The Hottie Smoothie
  • Fish oil and probiotic supplement
  • Yogi Detox tea or hot water with lemon (optional)
  • Detox Bath 2 ½ cups Epsom Salt, 10 drops lavender essential oil

 

Throughout the day, enjoy unlimited water, hot water with lemon, herbal tea and detox tea.  Total water consumption should be around 3 liters daily.  Water is necessary for optimal function of all body processes.  It is also our primary detoxification tool, flushing waste from the body, leaving us light and clean!

 

30 minutes of exercise daily.  Elevate your heart rate and get sweaty.  Sweat is one of our greatest vehicles of detoxification.

 

Keep a journal.  Pay attention to how you are feeling.  What are you struggling with?  What feels great?  Are you sleeping well?  Is everything working properly in the bathroom?  How is your energy?  We would love to hear from you!

 

Try to minimize external stress.  Turn off the TV and computer at least an hour before bedtime.  Wind-down with a long soak in the Detox Bath, enjoy light reading or a romp in the sheets with your lover;). Remember, this is 72 hours of self-love.  You deserve it!

    Tips

    • Prep smoothies for the day (or for the full 3 days) ahead of time.  Measure ingredients according to recipes and store them in airtight mason jars.  When you are ready to go, pour the contents of your mason jar into the blender, blend until creamy, and pour back into the mason jars to enjoy throughout the day.  Wait to blend smoothies for the day on that day.  The smoothies begin to oxidize and look a little funky if they sit for too long.
    • A good blender is helpful, but not necessary.  A Ninja or VitaMix will make this process easier, but I have made fantastic smoothies with my thirty-dollar blender too.  Be patient, pausing regularly to push down the sides.  Blend thoroughly, and check to ensure no large chunks slip through.
    • Chia seed is a highly nutritious food that may be substituted for flax meal in any smoothie.  It will make a creamier drink, although it must be consumed immediately upon blending.   Chia will absorb all the liquid in your smoothie if it sits, leaving a pudding/ gel consistency that is better eaten with a spoon.
    • Because the water content of fruits and vegetables varies, if needed, add water to adjust the consistency of any smoothie.
    • These are savory smoothies designed to provide maximum nutrition, support detoxification and reset our taste buds.  Use generous handfuls of leafy greens (spinach and kale).  They are low in calories, packed with valuable nutrition and are alkalizing (key to detox).
    • A scoop of raw plant-based protein powder (such as Sun Warrior) may be added to any smoothie.  I put a half-scoop of vanilla Sun Warrior- Warrior Blend in The Hottie Smoothie and it was delish!
