Detox & What to Eat After Detoxing

For help recalibrating your eating and getting back on course, consider including the following detox foods in your diet.



Avoid GMO (Synthetic Franken Foods), Seedless Vegetables & Fruits, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Grapes etc.

Vegetables are rich in phytochemicals (naturally-occurring plant chemicals)


Peeled Fruits (Non-GMO)

Avoid Seedless.

Like vegetables, fruit contain phytonutrients that may provide health benefits. Aim for 5-10 servings of colorful fruits & vegetables per day.


Soaked - Whole Non-GMO “Ancient Grains” & Complex Carbs (not white)

Everyone has their go-to carbs (often pasta and bread), but this is a good time to experiment and try other sources of whole grains and complex carbs, such as:


Soaked Beans and Legumes & Non-GMO Tofu

Canned with “packing” throughly rinsed & rinsing often. Or better dry soaked over night.


Pasture-Fed Healthy Oils (Fats)

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (for heating or frying) & EV Olive Oil (Not to use for frying or cooking).


If you're cooking with oil, Use Pastured Beef tallow or Pasture-raised Lade  use high-quality, unrefined oils, such as:


Unpasteurized Dairy and Dairy Substitutes

Eating Pasteurized Dairy (HEAT- ALTERED & from cows fed GMO grains (with loads of “Dead Bacteria” is a bit like eating a PB&J sandwich on MOLDY BREAD.



In general, it's a good idea to use your thirst to guide how much you drink, although some people have conditions that may require them to drink more or less. Limit alcohol (to tased only).  Limit Coffee intake substituted “Yerba Mate” for ENERGY, mental clarity-focus, swapping in herbal, green, or white tea.

Fresh, Ferme ted and dried herbs and spices can make any meal more flavorful, without adding sugar or white salt. Chop some fresh herbs such as basil, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, tarragon, or thyme.


Spices include allspice, anise, caraway seeds, cardamom, celery seeds, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, saffron, tamarind, or turmeric.


Raw Sugar and Other Sweeteners

Limiting overall intake of altered sweets and sugar from all sources will go a long way.  Choose natural sources such as the following:


Pasture-Raised Animal Protein- Omega 3 & Vitamin D

Detox diets differ on the question of whether to include animal protein. If you're going to eat it, consider the following options:

Free Range & not Trucked to Market or Fed GMO Grain

A Word From Verywell

It’s not about depriving yourself, skipping meals, or going on an overly restrictive juice cleanse. The ultimate goal is to make these healthful and tasty foods a part of your everyday routine, and to make positive lifestyle changes that will last even after the detox diet is over.

Use it as a time to experiment with new recipes and cooking methods. You may discover, for instance, that spaghetti squash isn't much harder to prepare than white pasta, roasted cauliflower can be a satisfying snack if seasoned with herbs and sea salt, or that there are delicious milk alternatives like almond or macadamia nut milk.
