During a detox or cleanse it is obviously essential to feed your body with as many nutrients as possible while eliminating all harmful foods and liquids.

Depending on the type of detox you are undertaking, the below will be useful to you as a basic core of detoxifying, cleansing recipes. 

All of these recipes are acceptable regardless of the detox method you chose, however, some detox/cleanse programs are more flexible than others so do feel free to add ingredients that are acceptable on your detox/cleanse plan.

With all detox and cleansing diets getting enough nutrients is essential, so we recommend our Moringa Plus multivitamin/Super food. There are no fillers or binders and it has the highest nutritional value of any multivitamin or super food product currently available. No company has accepted our challenge to compare our Moringa Plus to any other their products. We urge you to compare our Moringa Plus to your present multivitamin or super food.  Shocking isn't it.

Alkalising Raw Soup
Serves 2

This is definitely a highly energising soup and is a big favourite while on a cleanse or detox. Contains avocado which is high in EFAs and cucumber which is well known for its cleansing properties. The taste of this soup can be dramatically altered by the use of the herbs and spices mentioned or by alternating between lemon and lime.

Ingredients:

1 avocado
2 spring onions
1/2 red or green pepper
1 cucumber
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 clove of garlic
100ml of light vegetable Bouillon (yeast free)
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Optional: coriander, parsley, cumin.

Blend the avocado and stock to form a light paste, then add the other ingredients and blend.

Vegetable Super Juice
Serves 2

This juice is a popular one for breakfast as it gives your energy levels a boost, wakens your digestive system whilst giving your body a nutrition, yet gentle start to the day. 250ml mixed with 250ml of distilled water is usually enough to keep me going until lunchtime. If you are keen to get '5-a-Day' this is a pretty good start!

Ingredients:

1 whole cucumber
4 sticks of celery
2-4 handfuls of spinach
8 lettuce leaves
Any other greens!
Optional boosters: parsley and fresh alfalfa sprouts

Juice all ingredients and mix 50/50 with distilled water. Add optional lemon juice to taste to boost the alkalinity of the juice.

Healing Detox Juice
Serves 2

A sweeter, more subtle juice which still packs a nutritional punch! The combination of the carrots, spinach and parsley provides an excellent source of antioxidants, while the celery lends its cleansing properties.

Ingredients:

3-4 Carrots
125g Fresh Spinach
Handful of Flat Leaf Parsley
2-3 Sticks of Celery

Juice all ingredients (putting celery through last). Mix with water to taste or drink neat (your preference).

Warm Broccoli Soup
Serves 2

This is definitely a winter favourite and destroys the myth that all raw food has to be cold and unwelcoming! By steaming the broccoli for just 5-6 minutes, the meal remains raw, but gains enough warmth to give that filling, comforting feeling of soup. The texture given by the broccoli and the kick of the ginger make this an excellent choice for those new to alkalising.

Ingredients:

1/2 Avocado
6 -8 Decent size Broccoli Heads
1/3 Red Onion
1 Celery Stick
Big Handful of Spinach
An Inch of Root Ginger
Cumin (Optional)

Lightly steam the broccoli (5-6 minutes) and put with all ingredients in a blender. Add garlic, pepper, Spices of Life to taste. The heat from the broccoli makes this a lovely, gently warmed soup great for winter.

Autumn Tomato & Avocado Alkalising Soup
Serves 2

This is a nice soup to have either cold (a bit like gazpacho) or warmed (on a slightly chilly morning or evening)

Ingredients:

5 large ripe (preferably vine) tomatoes.
1 ripe avocado
1 spring onion
1/4 cup ground almonds (freshly done yourself, not packet)
1 cup broth from Swiss Vegetable Bouillon
1/4 teaspoon dill seed
Dash cayenne pepper
Sea salt & cracked black pepper to taste

All you need to do is place all of the ingredients into a blended (except one of the tomatoes) and blend! Depending on whether you are going cold or warm - then place the soup into a pan and warm very slightly. Warming so that it is not painful to put your finger into still means that the soup is raw. Add the last tomato (sliced) on top and serve!

Voila!
