You may feel like detoxing means days and days of juicing and exercising, feeling hungry and generally exhausted. But the point of a detox is to make you feel better, not worse!
You can give your body a reset while actually eating, you just have to figure out what your body needs. Fruit, veggies, and lean protein are a definite yes: they keep the body functioning properly, can reduce cholesterol, and regulate blood pressure. Make sure you always have them in your pantry. Sugar, alcohol, and soft drinks are on the opposite side of the spectrum.

Weird that you would consider tuna or chicken as detox food. Tuna contains mercury, and chicken contains hormones dangerous to our bodies. Both badly pollute the body, and because they’re animal protein, are much harder on the body to process. Please, learn exactly what animal “foods” do to the human body. There’s so many reasons to avoid such things to begin with, but especially if one is thinking of eating clean/ for a detox.

Hi! Above all that you say, they are flesh, they are animal protein and animal fat! With the mercury and the hormones even worse!

Could you be so kind to unsubscribe me from this mail?
Really strange that I receive unasked mail and it doesn’t contain a unsubscribe-link.
Thank you, Y. Lelyveld

What a great post guys! I totally agree with you – detox is not about depriving your body of food, it’s about feeding it with the right nutrients. Thank you so much for featuring my soup too (you’ve reminded me to make a new big batch of it!). Have a great day x
