Allowed Foods

Allowed Foods

Brown Rice, Quinoa, Sweet Potatoes: These three foods will be the bulk of your complex carbohydrates during your detox program. Brown rice will give sustained energy, aid in elimination of waste, and keep you feeling full after a meal. It is also rare for someone to have an allergy to brown rice. Quinoa is a high-protein seed (not a grain) that is a powerhouse energy source, and sweet potatoes are delicious, nutritious, and fun to prepare!

Vegetables: Aim for at least 6-8 servings per day (1 serving= ½ cup cooked, or 1 cup raw) This includes (but is not limited to!) asparagus, broccoli, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliower, bell peppers, carrots, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach, romaine lettuce, zucchini, sweet potatoes, snap peas, green beans, yellow beans, string beans, eggplant, jicama, pumpkin, water chestnuts, and onions. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE WHITE POTATOES, CORN, AND PEAS (all of which are considered starchy vegetables).

Fruit: Aim for 2-3 servings per day (1 serving= 0.5-1 cup or, for example, 1 small apple) This includes (but is not limited to!) apples, bananas, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, clementines, cranberries, grapefruit, grapes, honeydew melon, kiwis, lemons, limes, oranges, papayas, peaches, pears, pomegranates, plums, raspberries, strawberries, and watermelon. Note that tropical fruits such as pineapples, bananas, and papaya have a naturally higher sugar content so be mindful of portion size.

Fat: Learn to love good fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, avocados, nuts & seeds, nut butters, ground axseed, almonds, hazelnuts, olives, ghee, coconut butter/manna, coconut milk, coconut meat and coconut akes.

Lean Protein: Seafood (including but not limited to salmon, shrimp, scallops, cod, and crab), grassfed beef, bison, lamb, elk, venison, eggs, chicken, turkey, duck, pheasant, and bone broth.

Beverages: DRINK LOTS OF WATER! Consume half of your body weight (in ounces) in PLAIN water each day. Alkaline water is preferred! Also, hydrate with herbal tea, green tea, sparkling water, or even water infused with some lemon/lime wedges.

Seasonings: Prepare your food with fresh or dried, whole or ground herbs and spices! Use low sodium organic chicken, beef, or vegetable broth to add avor as well as some Himalayan sea salt and black or white pepper.

Condiments: Use fresh salsa, pico de gallo, pure organic   ketchup, organic mustard, and hot sauces without added preservatives to add avor to your meals.

Sweetener: Use Stevia which is a sweetener extracted from a naturally sweet herb.

Supplements: You may consider adding Vitamin C, milk thistle, multi-vitamin, high quality Omega-3 fish oil, Alpha lipoic acid, 5 HTP, probiotics, digestive enzymes (from plant sources) or glutamine.

  • Please check with your doctor before adding any supplements to your regimen.

Foods To Avoid

Foods To Avoid

Grains: This includes wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn, white rice, millet, bulgur, sorghum, amaranth, buckwheat, and sprouted grains.

Sugar: No maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, Splenda, Equal, Nutrasweet, xylitol, etc. You must read labels because food manufacturers will sneak sugar into products with names you may not recognize such as brown rice syrup or evaporated cane juice. Also, products that claim to be sugar-free often still contain articial sugars which can have a negative eect on the body in the short-term and the long-term.

Alcohol: No beer, wine, hard alcohol, etc. Not even for cooking!

Tobacco: Eliminate any tobacco products from your day-to-day routine.

Caffeine: No caffeine, but you can and should have tea! I suggest green tea but try out different herbal teas too. Tea can be a great alternative for habitual coffee drinkers.

Legumes: This includes beans of all kinds including black, red, pinto, navy, white, kidney, lima, fava, peas, chickpeas, and lentils. Beans are starchy and can signicantly raise blood sugar. Also, no peanuts or peanut butter, but almond butter is acceptable. Finally, no forms of soy are included in the detox program which includes soy protein, soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame, and soy lecithin.

Dairy: This includes cow, goat, or sheep milk products such as cheese, kerfir, yogurt, ice cream, butter, cream cheese, half & half, and sour cream. The exception is ghee (claried butter).

Food Additives: Avoid foods that contain carrageenan, MSG, nitrites, or sulfites.

Protein Powder: Brown rice or veggie protein powders are the only acceptable types of protein powder on the Detox. Most protein powders are made with whey (which is dairy) or soy (which is a common cause of food allergies). Also, most have some form of sweetener. Brown rice protein and veggie protein powder are the only acceptable protein powders to consume during this detox.
