Fruit and Vegetable Cleansing

Spread the love

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is woefully lacking in most nutrients, including those necessary for good digestive health. Lack of these substances, combined with the environment, and processing of the food supply, makes an internal cleansing necessary. The benefits are myriad and vary with the individual, depending on current diet and state of their health.

Fruit and Vegetable Cleansing

A detox or body cleansing, like a diet, has to be followed to be effective. For most everyone on the SAD, a practical program of raw and cooked fruits and vegetables, along with nuts and seeds, would serve the purpose and improve a person’s health. As always, Mama was right when she insisted on everyone eating their vegetables.

Some foods, i.e. carrots and potatoes, are tastier and their nutrients are better absorbed when lightly cooked. These also make the detox more palatable. Even when eating out, this would be possible today as even fast-food places often have salad bars or salads and some include baked potatoes, for example, Wendy’s.

Suggested Guidelines for Detoxing With Fruits and Vegetables

As always, check with your medical professional before beginning any diet changes. Diabetics, in particular, should never make any changes without consulting their doctor first.

A two-day plan is customary, although there are good practical plans for up to two weeks.

Include any fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds. Some will allow whole grains, such as brown rice.

Organic, of course, is always best, but use regular if that is unavailable or cost prohibitive. Be sure to clean well, especially if eating the skin.

Feel free to use vinegars, spices and herbs. Condiments, such as catsup and mustard, could be used sparingly although purists would advise against these due to additives, sugar and sodium.

What to do After Cleansing

The feeling of well-being following a detox is often motivation for continuing on an improved healthy diet plan. There are many choices even in today’s processed world. Organic products, as stated above, are the ideal, but often are cost prohibitive. Simply concentrate on getting products that are minimally processed and local whenever possible.

A vegetarian diet could include raw or cooked fruit, vegetables, nuts, and whole-grains. A modified vegetarian plan could include occasional small amounts of eggs, milk and/or protein. Using a little meat, poultry or fish as a complement, as in a stir-fry, would supply needed levels of Vitamin B12 and all the amino acids. This would also be a more satisfying plan.
