Natalia Rose’s raw food detox diet is a safe and effective way to improve your health. Eating a raw food diet can help clean out the colon and rid the body of extra yeast and other toxins that can interfere with your immune system and many other systems in the body. The important thing to remember with any cleansing diet is that you will feel symptoms related to the cleanse. This can be because of yeast die-off or because your body is in a healing crisis. It can take 30 – 60 days before you really feel better. Go at a pace that feels doable, and remember to get extra rest. Here is a sample menu and shopping list to help you stay the course and succeed.
Your Raw Food Detox Diet Shopping List
Buy organic whenever possible and start with these items:
- Food processor
- Lemon Juice
- Raw nuts, such as almonds, cashews and sesame seeds
- Raw flax meal
- Raw almond butter
- Raw tahini
- Raw yellow miso
- Raw unprocessed organic oil
- Dino kale and green kale
- Fresh herbs, such as sweet basil leaves, fresh rosemary and oregano
- Purple cabbage
- Other vegetables including yellow and green squash, whole garlic, purple onions, cauliflower, red and green leaf lettuce, butter lettuce and cucumbers
- Sheets of organic dried seaweed
- Veggie broth
- Whole leaf decaffeinated green tea
- Pao Darco tea or your favorite detox tea
- Good olive
Start your day with a nice raw soup. Blend sunburst and/or green squash with lemon juice, hot water, a tablespoon of raw yellow miso, some flax meal and a little garlic. Puree the above ingredients and top with shredded carrots and raw, sprouted almond slivers. Follow this with an orange or a cup of strawberries to give the body a boost of vitamin C. Have a large cup of green tea or detox tea.
You’ll maintain a good energy level if you eat a mid-morning snack. Slice an organic apple and spread 1-2 tablespoons of your raw almond butter on the slices. This gives a good combination of healthy carbohydrates and some protein to lower the blood sugar spike.
A good wrap using the seaweed sheets makes a lovely lunch. Fill your sheets with cucumber, avocado, sesame seeds, and flax meal mixed with lemon juice. You can also make “noodles” with zucchini and pesto made with the ghee and basil leaves and maybe some raw pine nuts.
Make a sauce with raw almond butter, raw tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and water. Night time is a nice time for something warm, so quinoa is a good choice. Mix in some raw green kale, shredded carrots, sprouted almond slivers and a bit of raw kim chi. Top with some wheat free tamari and mix some of the sauce in.
