Dreambody 7-day Detox Diet

Healthy Apple and lots of Water


As the New Year begins we think about how to make the coming year more productive and enjoyable. Many people plan a vacation, start a diet, join a gym, quit smoking, or take up a new hobby. Health is critical to feeling happy and having the energy to enjoy the benefits of living in sunny Arizona. A detox diet is an easy way to shed some pounds and cleanse your system of the chemicals that are all around us and in the food that we eat.

If you are considering a diet, take a look at our program. We have specialized supplements that work with the diet. This program is not about starving yourself. You can still eat a satisfying meal but by eating the right type of foods and adding our supplements you will sleep better, feel energized, and more focused as you start the New Year off right!

3) Foods to Avoid – A list of foods to exclude on a 7-day detox diet.

A detox diet is a focused, short-term diet to promote the elimination of unwanted chemicals and environmental and dietary toxins from the body. Although detox diets vary, here is a list of foods often avoided.

4) Sample Menu Plan – Although meals made from any of the allowed detox foods are okay, it helps to have a sample menu plan with ideas on what to make.


Drink a glass of lukewarm, filtered water with lemon.

A typical breakfast consists of at least 50 percent fruit or vegetable (such as baked sweet potato or green vegetable juice). Ideas for breakfast include:

Fresh berries or other fresh fruit
Gluten-free bread with avocado or raw nut butter
Gluten-free cooked cereals
Nut milk
Herbal tea, spice tea, or green or white tea

Snack ideas include:
10 to 15 raw almonds
Apple or pear, sliced, with 1 tablespoon raw almond butter
Piece of fruit
Carrot, celery and/or cucumber sticks with hummus
Unsalted gluten-free crackers (such as rice crackers or Mary’s Gone Crackers) with guacamole or hummus
Kale chips
Smoothie made with allowed foods
Green vegetable juice

A typical lunch on a detox diet consists of approximately 60 to 80 percent vegetables, preferably raw, such as greens, bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and hemp seeds. You can then fill the other 20 to 40 percent in with other plant foods, such as cooked chickpeas, steamed broccoli, gluten-free grains such as rice or quinoa, baked sweet potato, or steamed fish (if you eat meat).

A salad is an easy, packable detox lunch. Assemble a bowl or plate based on the ratios above. Make a simple dressing using 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil, 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice, and an optional 1 teaspoon of fresh-chopped herbs. Other lunch ideas include:

Chickpeas and vegetables seasoned with turmeric, ginger, and cumin
Salad with choice of vegetables, such as arugula, cucumbers, onions, and steamed beets.
Lentil soup
Kale salad with pine nuts and cranberries


Try for a dinner that is 60 to 80 percent vegetables. An easy dinner is a Buddha bowl. You don’t have to follow a recipe to make one, just combine 1 cup of cooked brown rice or quinoa, 1 to 2 teaspoons of an allowed oil such as extra-virgin olive oil, vegetables, beans and legumes, seeds and seasonings, such as chickpeas, spinach or kale, steamed broccoli, avocado, hemp or chia seeds, or seaweed. Other dinner ideas include:

Portobello mushroom cap, brushed with olive oil and baked or lightly sauteed
Steamed kale sprinkled with pine nuts and tossed in lemon juice and olive oil
Brown rice or quinoa
Steamed salmon with fresh herbs and lemon with bok choy
Vegetable curry with brown rice
Broccoli soup
Black bean salad with quinoa
Thai cashew vegetables with quinoa

There are many types of detox diets, from juice fasts to detoxes that allow three meals per day. While it may be tempting to make a drastic change by trying a fasting diet, sometimes simple changes such as drinking more fluids, eating more vegetables, or eliminating wheat can have a profound effect on how we feel. The key is to choose the diet that best matches a person’s health, energy level, and lifestyle.

Other Steps to a Detox Diet Plan


Diet is just one component of any well-designed detox diet. In addition with an eating plan, there are other important steps:

1) Enhance Circulation

A lack of physical activity can result in poor circulation of blood and lymph fluid, which can have a negative effect on health and impair detoxification and immune function. The best way to get blood flowing is to exercise. Contrast showers and dry skin brushing are also great because they can be integrated into your regular shower.

2) Promote Elimination

When toxins that are stored in our cells are mobilized, they travel to our blood and must be eliminated from the body through feces, urine, or sweat or they can be reabsorbed and recirculated in our systems. Sometimes our organs of elimination are sluggish because we don’t move (and therefore don’t sweat), are constipated, or don’t drink enough water. Ways to increase elimination include: foods that prevent constipation, herbal laxatives such as senna tea or cascara, increased fluid intake, colonics, or enemas.

3) Improve Digestion

Promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, so that it can keep potentially harmful bacteria in check, otherwise “bad” bacteria can produce toxins that damage the intestinal lining, are absorbed into the bloodstream, and injure cell membranes in the body. The detox diet can often provide the nutrients needed to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. Probiotics can also be supplemented.

Most detox diets call for the removal of foods people are often sensitive to, such as wheat and gluten. A properly chosen diet supports the liver by providing it with protein, antioxidants, vitamin, and other nutrients so that it can detoxify efficiently. Supplements can also be taken, such as protein powder and vitamins, antioxidants, herbs for the liver, or detox teas.

4) Mind/Body Wellness

Stress can impair the body’s detoxification systems and lead to digestive ailments, impaired immunity, and have wide-ranging effects on health. A detox diet is a time not just to let the body heal, but to allow the mind to rest. Try to incorporate mind/body practices into your detox, such as diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or mindfulness meditation.
