A Day in the Life of a Detoxing Nutritionist

A Day in the Life of a Detoxing Nutritionist

A detox is something I do once - twice a year as a means to flush the unavoidable toxins in our world today and to help revitalise my digestive system and energy levels (did you know the average Aussie has 3-5kg of toxic waste in their bowels?!).

This was a recipe from my most recent detox program which involves 21 days of no sugar (or substitutes), no caffeine, no alcohol, no gluten and no processed food. It might sound difficult but when you're eating meals like this, trust me,  one  you don't miss any of that stuff at all!

 Now although I am not one to promote diets or labelled eating patterns, I personally do a detox every year and actually look forward to it after Winter because it is honestly like a natural version of a berroca, red bull and expresso martini  all mixed into one...you really do feel that energised and amazing afterwards (note: afterwards :P).
