Summary

Summary

Detox Juicing provides readers with one hundred juice and smoothie recipes that will give their bodies a relief from poor food choices and hectic lifestyles, allowing them to replenish and awaken their full healing capacities. The recipes are conveniently organized in three-, seven-, and fourteen-day easy-to-follow detox programs. All are designed to cleanse the body from the inside out--removing many of the toxins we are bombarded with in our modern lives that come from our food, cleaning and beauty products, the environment, and even negative emotions.

Detox Juicing is a perfect introduction to the fasting and detox processes. Authors Morena Escardo and Morena Cuadra explore the processes in depth, by explaining their importance for the overall state of our health, giving recommendations on how to complement a detox diet with simple lifestyle changes, and guiding readers to make informed decisions when it comes to ingredients, juicing equipment, and choosing a program that is right for them.

This book offers powerful detoxing tools that everyone can follow, no matter their physical conditions or eating habits. Readers will come away learning new ways of relating to their bodies and to food, and how making a few key changes in their lives can positively impact their health in the long run.
