A raw foods diet cleanse is known for helping to rid the body of toxins. This is also a popular cleanse for jump starting your metabolism and losing weight. The basic concept of the raw foods diet cleanse is to only consume foods that are not heated above 118 degrees and are not processed. By eating only raw foods, you make the digestion process easier on your body, since the enzymes preserved in the raw foods help to break down food. This gives all of your digestive organs a well needed break and over time can improve their efficiency. With the body holding onto fewer toxins, you are able to more easily lose those last few stubborn pounds. A raw foods cleanse can last a weekend, a week, a month or can even become a full lifestyle change.
2 avocadoes, mashed
2 cloves of garlic, minced
½ cup of onion, diced
1 cup of tomato, chopped
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
Dash of lime juice
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until well blended. Serve with sliced cucumbers, bell peppers or celery.
Smoothies are also an effective and tasty addition to a raw foods cleansing detox. Combine a sampling of your favorite fruits, and even some leafy greens, such as kale, in a blender with some ice and natural milk, such as almond milk. Blend until smooth and serve chilled.
