We’d like to invite you to join us on a three day cleanse & detox! Don’t worry – this isn’t one of those detox programs that will have you drinking nothing but lemon juice and honey water. Our program is designed to kickstart your healthy eating plan and cleanse your system from the inside out. The cleanse & detox shopping list is filled with whole, clean, and healthy foods.
Choosing to cleanse your body means removing toxins, and a big part of that is getting rid of refined ingredients. Our cleanse & detox shopping list is filled with fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. Everything you need to keep you fueled during the cleanse.
Below, you will find ingredients for the three day cleanse & detox. We purchased all of the ingredients (minus just a few items we already had on hand). Our grand total was only $54.32. Keep in mind that your cost will depend on where you shop and whether you choose to buy organic. If you have access to a local farmer’s market, that’s a great place to get started for buying most of the items on this cleanse & detox shopping list.
A Few Detox Considerations
Before you get started with your 3-day cleanse & detox, there are a few considerations you should keep in mind. We would recommend that you think about these things before buying your ingredients (just in case the cleanse & detox isn’t for you). And, as always, consult with a doctor before starting any new diet or workout program.
Sorry folks, but caffeine should not be consumed during this cleanse & detox. If you’re a heavy caffeine user, we suggest that you slowly ween yourself off caffeine before attempting the cleanse. Going cold-turkey on caffeine can cause headaches and other negative side effects.
Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free
This detox features all dairy-free and gluten-free ingredients. That’s great for those of you who are already following those types of diets! For the rest of you: this could be a good introduction to dairy-free and gluten-free eating, so don’t be afraid of going hungry. The ingredients are so fresh and fulfilling that you’ll definitely feel satisfied.
Most of the recipes feature whole foods like fruits, seeds, raw nuts, vegetables, and herbs. You might think that eating that way is expensive, but we were able to buy everything on the cleanse & detox shopping list for under $60! This is a perfect way to connect with Whole30-style eating.
Get Ready for an Experience
Everyone’s experience will differ. Some may have a headache and others feel little weak during the cleanse & detox. On the other hand, some people report that they have more energy than usual! So just keep in mind that your experience on this cleanse and detox will be unique to your body.
If you don’t drink green smoothies or juices on a regular basis, your taste buds are in for a surprise. No matter what you think about the flavor, just stick with it. Those buds will come around, and you’ll begin to enjoy the nutrient richness of whole foods. Your body will thank you!
As with any change in diet, we recommended that you check with your doctor before beginning the cleanse & detox. If you are allergic to any ingredients, do not include them in your cleanse; you may use alternatives. This plan was adapted from the book, Hungry for Change – Ditch the Diets, Conquer the Cravings, and Eat Your Way to Lifelong Health.
If you think you’ll be juicing after the cleanse ends, we recommend buying a high-powered juicer (like this Breville juicer). Otherwise, you can use any kind of blender and add water to the drink recipes to make them work. Which is better? Really it’s a matter of personal preference.
Juicers will create a thinner drink that is closer to the consistency of juice. It’s just juice – no pulp. On the other hand, the blender leaves 100% of the pulp and produce a much thicker drink. Since we’re a huge fan of all that fiber, we prefer not to give up one ounce of the nutrients.
