Bookmark this gentle smoothie detox created by a qualified Nutritionist and let the power of wholefood ingredients, help you naturally detox and feel fabulous in less than a week. The 5 Day Detox Smoothie Challenge starts now and you're invited to join in! So, come on, let's blend!


What To Eat On The Detox Plan?


During this gentle detox challenge, you will be consuming a more wholefood-based diet to nourish and boost your energy. Unlike processed foods, choosing detox wholefoods will provide your body with all the essential nutrients you needs to sustain energy throughout the day; and naturally detox. Within the week you should start to experience improvements in gut health, mood and yes, even your waistline. It doesn't take very long for these positive changes to manifest. Before we start, here's a quick run down on the basics needed for the 5 Day Detox Smoothie Challenge.


Drinking Water Is Key


Start each day by hydrating with plenty of water. Adequate hydration not only supports appetite regulation, but it also helps to prevent brain fog, balances your hormones, plus improves both mood and your energy levels. Water plays a key role in how well your body can naturally detoxify itself, so make it a habit to prioritise your water intake throughout the day.


Wholefood Macros In Smoothies


Macro-nutrients are at the core of a well-balanced eating plan, and even more important when doing a detox. Make a habit of choosing to eat mostly high-fiber foods, lean proteins from quality sources, healthy fats, and nutrient-rich carbohydrates from high-fiber sources (rather than processed options). The 5 Day Detox Smoothie Challenge below contains all of these, making detoxing on the good stuff as easy as following along 1-2-3!


Focus On Dietary Fibre


In addition to consuming wholefoods every day, it's important to consume 40g or more of dietary fibre. Fibre-rich foods play such a pivotal role in maintaining a healthy gut, regulating your blood sugar levels, and aiding weight management. Incorporating high-fibre ingredients such as fruits and berries, dark, leafy greens, psyllium, chia seeds. and other high fibre ingredients in your smoothies will enhance satiety, promote regular bowel movements, and contribute to a more nourished body. Ensuring you regularly eat high-fibre foods is not only a key element of this smoothie challenge, but it is also a fundamental way of supporting long-term health and vitality. Take note!


Choose Lean, Clean Protein


The final component of the 5 Day Detox Smoothie Challenge revolves around consuming clean protein from plant-based sources. Protein is essential for muscle repair, immune function, and sustaining energy levels throughout the day. Giving your body a break from harder to digest meat and animal proteins is a simple way to do a gentle detox without sacrificing taste or choice. Protein also boosts the overall nutritional profile of your meals, contributing to well-balanced, satisfying meals that support your health and wellness goals.
