Detox starts tomorrow

The Organic Pharmacy: The Complete Guide to Natural Health and Beauty

I start my 10 day detox tomorrow and I am very excited. The book above is the one I am using for it. I like it because it is not completely a soup and smoothie detox. It has salads and recipes I would use AFTER the detox as well. I really don’t think I will be hungry on this one.

I have wanted to do a detox for ages and as with everything I kept putting it off and putting it off. Last week I decided that Tuesday (tomorrow) is the day. I spent the weekend in Sydney and knew it would be bad (I was better than I usually am!) So couldn’t start last week.

I have written out my list and will be getting everything I need today. I will be packaging it into the right foods for each day so it will be easier and there won’t be as much temptation.

Since I am the only one in my family doing it I am also going to do a cook-up today for my daughters. I will be freezing things so each day it will be just a matter of defrosting their meals. This will hopefully stop me from nibbling their things, as I tend to “taste test” a lot.

I am very determined to do this as it is part of my 101 things in 1001 days and since I had to swipe a bunch of them off my list, I REALLY need to get cracking on completing some more!


  1. What does the detox involve? Do tell!

  2. Mainly it's an eating plan, I'll be posting about it. :It's just cutting out all junk, mainly eating fruit and veg. There's a specific 10 day detox in the book, which is the one I am doing.

  3. Can't wait to read more about it! I keep thinking that a detox would be the smart thing to do ... but never go through with it!
