Welcome to the Detox for Beginners!

If you’ve never detoxed before, rest assured – you are in good hands.

I’m committed to your detox success, and I want you to have a great experience this week.  The best way to do that is to read through this guide from beginning to end.


What is a Detox, anyway?

By definition, a detox is a process by which the body gets rid of poisonous substances.  To cleanse is defined as removing dirt, or making something clean.  Throughout this program, you’ll see the two terms used interchangeably.  Basically, a food-based detox is an opportunity to remove known toxins and “bad foods” from our diet for a pre-determined amount of time.  The Spring 5-Day Detox for Beginners works through the process of taking out unhealthy foods and adding in nutritious foods.

What can I eat during the detox?

To make the process easier for you, I’ve provided the Spring Detox Suggested Recipes to ensure that you have plenty to eat during the 5 days.  You do not need to follow the exact plan and can tailor each day to your personal preference.  However, it’s there for you if you need it.

Our goal is to have a focus on whole grains, proteins and vegetables, while avoiding caffeine, sugar, dairy, red meat, pork and gluten.

We’ll eat foods that nourish us and increase our bodies’ natural detox processes. We’ll also slow down our hectic lives as much as we can and pay attention to our eating habits so we can begin to learn about our relationship with food and what we can do to make some positive changes.

I encourage you to put a strong focus on all the delicious foods you can eat during the next few days, as opposed to what you can’t. Keep focused on all the wonderful options that are available to you!
