Raw Food Detox Meal Plan

Welcome to my Raw Food Detox Meal Plan.  You can find some of the recipes I use in the Raw Food Detox Recipes page.  Here are a few things to consider when you’re looking at this program:

  • This is my personal approach that I am sharing with you.  It is not meant to cure anything, it is just meant to offer a perspective.  If you decide to follow it, please do so under your own impetus and at your own comfort level.
  • I’ll be adding the food to this list once each week on Sunday or Monday as I plan for the following week.
  • I am preparing foods for just myself while on this program so you’ll see items repeated in the meal plan because there are lots of left overs.
  • I started indicating snacks on the plan, but I was surprisingly full and opted out of snacks even though I enjoyed some kind of dessert most days.
  • My smoothie and raw food recipes are based on those found in Ani Phyo’s Raw Food Basics.
  • I don’t have any food allergies so I eat a large variety.  You can alter the recipes according to your dietary restrictions.
  • Use only organic fruits and raw, organic nuts.
  • Try to use raw honey or another organic sweetener that you prefer, such as yacon, stevia or agave.
  • I make my own nut butters and include the recipes for you to try.
  • In smoothies, if the recipe calls for nut butter and you don’t have any, just throw in a few extra nuts and a hint of honey or agave.
  • I freeze all my fruits for smoothies and/or I use plenty of ice.
  • I use only purified water from my Brita Pitcher.
  • I have mason jars on hand for storing left-over smoothie.  These are also good for freezing juices.
  • I will add a little raw, vegan protein powder to my smoothie if I’m feeling too hungry, however, I’m learning to listen to my body and mind.  If my body is truly hungry, then I’ll add protein powder. If my mind is the hungry one (or I’m feeling anxious, or lonely, or separated, then I’ll meditate and eat the food of LOVE.)
  • For all smoothies, I chuck the ingredients into my blender and blend until smooth.  No particular order, unless otherwise stated.
  • I strongly suggest that you keep some of your healthier comfort foods prepared on hand in case you have an emergency.  For example, keep some fish or eggs handy if you need the grounding of protein; make some cherry almond protein balls if you need a sweet treat; freeze some veggie soup in case you crave something warm and soothing.  Think about your regular needs ahead of time and have some healthy alternatives on hand.  The point of this cleanse is to make you feel amazing, not beat down.  You’re less likely to go crazy if you give yourself permission for these things ahead of time.  Nurture yourself and be reasonable.  You’re a winner already, yo!
  • I make all of my juices ahead of time and freeze them because I get hungry making juice.  The vegetables smell so good when they are being run through the juicer, so no food prep when I’m in the process.

This week, I am omitting the snacks from the meal plan.  Last week, I didn’t eat snacks because I was full.  Also, I like the element of surprise in my day.  Maybe it will be an apple, maybe a few almonds.  Maybe, OMG!  SOME STRAWBERRIES!  Surprise!

Also, this week I am moving into getting prepared to have more smoothies because starting at Day 15, I begin two smoothies a day.  That takes a little mental preparation so I’ll start that now.
