A Day of Detox: Nourishing Your Body from Sunrise to Sunset

In our fast-paced lives, it’s essential to carve out moments to prioritise our health and well-being. One impactful way to do this is by incorporating a day of detox into your routine, filled with wholesome, nutrient-dense meals that support your body’s natural cleansing processes. Let’s explore a delicious and satisfying day of detox together.

Breakfast: Detox Green Smoothie Bowl

Kickstart your day with a burst of nutrients in a vibrant Detox Green Smoothie Bowl. Packed with kale, berries, chia seeds, and almond milk, this bowl is not only a treat for your taste buds but also a powerhouse of antioxidants and essential nutrients. Top it with sliced kiwi, hemp seeds, and a sprinkle of granola for added texture and flavour.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup kale (stems removed)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (such as blueberries or raspberries)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • Toppings: sliced kiwi, hemp seeds, and a sprinkle of granola

Instructions:

  • Blend kale, frozen banana, frozen berries, chia seeds, and almond milk until smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl and top with sliced kiwi, hemp seeds, and granola.

Snack: Green Tea and Almonds

Give your metabolism a gentle nudge with a cup of green tea paired with a handful of raw almonds. Green tea is renowned for its antioxidant properties, while almonds provide a satisfying crunch and a dose of healthy fats.

Lunch: Quinoa Salad with Lemon-Tahini Dressing

For lunch, indulge in a Quinoa Salad that’s as delicious as it is detoxifying. The combination of quinoa, mixed greens, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and red onion creates a colourful medley of flavours and textures. Drizzle it with a zesty Lemon-Tahini Dressing for an extra boost of nutrients.

  • 1 cup mixed greens (spinach, rocket, or kale)
  • 1/2 cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese (optional)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Snack: Fresh Fruit and Nut Medley

Combat those mid-afternoon cravings with a refreshing snack of sliced apples paired with a handful of mixed nuts. The natural sweetness of the fruit, combined with the crunch of nuts, provides a satisfying and energy-boosting pick-me-up.

Dinner: Baked Salmon with Roasted Vegetables

End your day on a high note with a dinner that’s both nutritious and satisfying. Baked Salmon takes centre stage, seasoned with olive oil, lemon zest, and fresh dill. Surround it with a colourful array of Roasted Vegetables, including broccoli and baby carrots, to ensure a well-rounded and detoxifying meal.

  • 1 salmon fillet
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill

  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Place the salmon fillet on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with lemon zest, dill, salt, and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, toss broccoli and carrots with olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Arrange the vegetables on the baking sheet around the salmon.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
