    How to Nourish Your Body After a Detox

    Anyone who’s ever done a cleanse can tell you about all the highs and lows that come with it. Hunger, withdrawal, and energy are just a few of the emotions you might experience while detoxing your body. But after finally coming from your cleanse feeling successful, what exactly are you supposed to do next? You want to eat everything you see, but that is not the best route to go.

                Breaking your cleanse can have more impact on you and your health than the cleansing diet itself so you’ll have to learn to reintroduce food back into your system. Use the first few days after a cleanse to try to identify your reactions to foods. It usually takes longer, but it can reveal some reactions to foods that might otherwise be difficult to notice. Typically, you can keep a journal and reintroduce foods systematically, noting any changes in energy, digestion, cravings, or other symptoms. It’s best to use a typical food and amount, rather than testing foods and portions that you’re unlikely to eat as part of your regular diet.  

    The day after a detox you should mainly eat vegetables, either raw or lightly steamed, and fruit or nuts. Portion sizes should be small and the diet should be very similar to what you did to prepare for the detox such as no sugar, coffee, wheat, gluten-containing foods, processed foods, or dairy.

    Day 1:

    Morning: raw fruit or vegetable juice 

    Lunch: salad and/or vegetable juice

    Dinner: veggie soup or slightly steamed vegetables.

    Drink plenty of alkaline water

    You Can use Coconut oil and herbs and spices to add flavor

    Day 2: 

    repeat as often as like, but only when hungry

    Lunch: salad and/or soup, nuts, beans, and legumes

    Dinner: steamed vegetables with a sauce of your choice. You can add a little steamed brown rice.

    Day 3:

    From day 3 on, you can slowly reintroduce dairy if you wish.

    Brown rice or quinoa




    Beans or legumes

    Small amounts of plant oils

    Organic yogurt, unflavored and unsweetened


    Day 4:

    From day 4 on, you can slowly introduce meat, poultry, or fish if you wish.

    And continue to eat vegetables, fruits and nuts

    Brown rice or quinoa

    Meat, chicken, fish, if eaten.

    Continue to keep your portion sizes small and avoid overeating. After 5 days, you can eat anything you wish, as long as you manage to keep a balance. Remember to drink lots of water, pay attention to your elimination habits and check out our probiotics to help you keep a healthy digestive tract!
