My special detox diet

Updated on October 8, 2014

Detox, cleanse your body

Detox diet, why?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought your hair was dull or your skin looked unhealthy. Or maybe you felt tired, drained of all energy. We tend to think we should go to the doctor, maybe something is wrong. How about thinking about what you eat and drink regularly? We are what we eat and having a busy life makes it difficult to have a good balanced diet. So, to kick start things I recommend a healthy detox diet. Just 2 weeks to clean your body and look and feel better.

Give your body a cleanse

A good balanced diet is ideal. Unfortunately I often find myself going home from work and just being too tired to cook a good meal. At weekends is very different; I live in the kitchen, I love cooking. But during the working days is so much easier to stick some chips in the oven, or have a ready meal. So, after a while my body rebels...

The following diet must be adhered to for at least 2 weeks. You'l see and feel the difference after a few days.

You can use olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon and herbs as condiment for your food but NO SALT!

Fruit and vegetables

This is a selection of fruit and vegetable rich in vitamin C and full of antioxidant.

Every day eat at least a couple of the followings:

tomatoes

spinach

broccoli

orange

grapefruit

cramberries

artichokes

olives

beetroot

cabbage

onion

garlic

I tend to make my food interesting by stuffing tomatoes, artichokes and cabbage leaves with other ingredients allowed in the diet. This way I can have something different every day.

Pulses and nuts

The following are a good sources of fibre, complex carbohydrates, and vitamins B1 and B2, calcium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus

Eat at least 2 of the following every day:

beans (all kind)

chickpeas

peas

lentils

lupins

nuts (all kind)

Fish

Oily fish reduce the risk of heart disease, as they're a good source of omega 3 and polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are also a good source of proteins.

At least 1 a day of the following oily fish:

Salmon

Trout

Mackerel

Herring

Sardines

Pilchards

Kipper

Tuna (fresh only)

Anchovies

Swordfish

Carp

I love my oily fish mixed with black rice and a sprinkle of goat cheese on top. Yummy!!!

More food

Goat products are lower in fat and higher in fatty acids than dairy products. They are also a great boost for the immune system.

Eat some goat cheese or yogurt every day.

Honey contains friendly bacteria, which cleanse the liver and neutralize toxins. Eat some every day (I put a spoon in my goat yogurt and tastes great).

Black rice is a anti-inflamatory and is very rich in antioxidant. Have some every couple of days.

To drink

Goat milk

orange juice

grapefruit juice

Cramberry juice

Beetroot juice

2 litres of water a day

To sum up

If it's not on the list don't eat/drink it....simple.

Here's the complete list:

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

lemon

herbs

tomatoes

spinach

broccoli
