Detox while Eating!
Detoxing is not just Juicing or sipping Smoothies. You can cleanse your body also by eating nutritious food. Detox don’t have to be twice a year one week cleanse. But you can keep your body lean and clean all year around by eating some of the most delicious detox meals. I want to share some of my favorite detox recipes what I have collected.

Basic Outline of a Detoxing Lifestyle by Alkalinesisters.com
An alkalizing lifestyle, as I embrace with this blog, will naturally flush toxins to detox the body and allow it to return to it’s ideal body weight and be toxin free as best as can be expected considering the world we live in and the toxins we are exposed to, just by breathing.
• Alkalizing the body with chlorophyll rich green veggies naturally buffers the acids from an acidic lifestyle and assists in flushing toxins. It’s pretty simple.
• A balance of 80% veggies to 20% healthy acidic whole foods – see alkaline chart here – is an everyday way to be constantly detoxing your body. Choose organic whenever possible to minimize your pesticide toxins of course and prepare salads like this one for a wonderful variety of colourful veggies as often as possible and juice daily if you can.
• Consume good quality filtered alkaline water, 3-4 liters per day to really flush those toxins and minimize the detox symptoms one might experience. If you are quite toxic and have never cleansed you have a couple options- Go cold turkey and deal with the consequences of a detox which can include flu like symptoms depending on your toxic level or go easy and do a slower version by leaning into a clean detoxing alkaline lifestyle. Start adding as much veggies and green juice as you can handle every single day and continually increase to the 80/20 ratio.
• I highly recommend this juice feast to flush your system and jump start your detoxing alkaline lifestyle. Take a thorough read thru the feast post and see if it’s for you. If not, there are a number of good detox kits on the market that you can do instead. I know that the Wild Rose is a good one that is done with whole foods and supplements. It’s your call, but after all this talk about juicing and cleansing I say go the juice route, you’ll never look back. It changed my life for good! If the body can really detox and there are no more or considerably less toxins coming in, magic happens!
