Detox Plan
Created by Sandy Rodgers ©Copyright 2016

In preparation for your detox plan if you have not done so already please eliminate all whites from your diet. White rice, white eggs, cow’s milk, white sugar, white flour etc. HINT: items that are white have been bleached of all nutritional value. Also, Eliminate or greatly reduce all animal meats and products including diary, eggs, cheese, chicken, turkey etc., all processed meats and other food items during the detox period. Once your detox is completed you can monitor your intake. These foods are NOT healthy.
We will focus on cleansing your two master organs which are responsible for your food digestion, the liver and the colon. When these two are clear you are better able to digest food properly and its nutrients can aide your body to the best possible degree.

Colon cleanse – I have done the Master Cleanse on several occasions my longest time was 43 days!! Here is my recommendation to replace a colon master cleanse:
1. Eat plenty of dark, leafy greens such as dandelion leaves, collards, arugula, spinach, chard. Use in either a smoothie or lightly cook on the stove add a little healthy fat such as coconut or olive oil or avocado. And by using an acid like vinegar or lemon juice it helps the absorption in the colon.
2. Chia seeds – add to your smoothies or 1 teaspoon to a glass of water. Pre-soak for a few minutes or grind them in a coffee grinder for best benefit.
3. Fennell seeds and oregano helps eliminate mucous buildup and bloating.
4. Cayenne dissolves the mucous in the gut and helps with blood circulation. It is one of the main ingredients of the Master Cleanse. Use it to season your foods.
5. Pre-biotics – Leeks, Onions, garlic, apples, almonds, bananas, sweet potato and yams. I use as much onion and garlic as I have available when I cook. The apples, almonds, and bananas can be added to your smoothies. (will give you a couple of quick smoothie recipes)
6. Pro-biotics – fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, natural yogurt and kefir! I also have a quick method to make your own veggie kraut.
7. Eggplant – pulls the oil from the colon; its an antioxidant; stops inflammation; and lowers cholesterol. Cook with tomato sauce/paste

Liver cleanse - These are foods to eat to support your liver functioning at its optimum.
1. Asparagus – detoxification and anti-cancer support, has high amounts of Vitamin B. Its glutathione ranks highest and is best supports the detox of liver.
2. Avocado – is one of your best healthy fatty acids; works to detoxify the liver; lowers cholesterol and scrubs the arteries removing plaque from the walls. (Guacamole!)
3. Basil – chelates heavy metal in the body such as mercury which can be stored in liver!
4. Beets – nitric acid; liver regenerating property; helps with blood circulation, sex, exercise and helps lower blood pressure.
5. Broccoli – Liver detox with glutathione; eat raw to lower thyroid naturally; never BOIL eat raw or lightly steamed. Raw has 3 times more nutrients than cooked.
6. Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage & Cauliflower – stomach healer, cancer crusher and muscle builder; anti-aging; phytochemicals Glutamine help repair stomach and intestinal lining. Cauliflower may be better or people with digestive issues, easier to digest. Cabbage has outer skin like our stomach the ideal food to eat to reapir gastrointestinal lining!!
7. Garlic – Immunity, Stamina and Cardiovascular protection; improves blood circulation and lowers blood pressure; destroys viruses; Its main mineral is sulfur builds heat and unlocks the power of glutathione for enhanced liver detoxification!!
8. Spinach – for eyes, liver and intestinal healing! It is the friendliest raw food, a remedy for constipation and digestive problems; note: cooked spinach loses a great deal of its Lutein; prevents or reduces accumulation of fat in the liver.

Smoothies – Use best water available, alkaline or distilled if possible.
!. Dandelion leaves, pineapple, pink lady apple, bananas and almonds.
2. Arugula and mixed baby greens, cucumber, celery stalks, pineapple and granny smith apple. You can add dates to sweeten, soak overnight. Note: cucumbers and celery stalks (alkaline)
3. Greens (1 or 2 mixed varieties) 2-3 handfuls , 1 plantain or banana or avocado (smooth consistency), ½ pink lady or granny smith apple (sweetness), 1 handful of nuts – almonds or walnuts; 1 cup Pineapple (better digestion);


Salads – dark leafy greens, avocado, red bell peppers, red onion, leeks, cucumbers, radishes, beets, and tomatoes- dressing: olive oil with vinegarette or apple cider vinegar.
Be sure to add Himalayan sea salt to your foods daily – it provides you with over 89 minerals and trace minerals that your body needs.
Snacks – apple slices, carrots, celery sticks, almonds
Ginger tea is a great drink, fresh hot or cold; builds up stamina and immunity. Boil 4 cups of water add a 2” piece sliced fresh ginger and boil for 20 minutes.

I like to use the term “GOD’s GROCERIES” when referring to what is beneficial to a high quality life. God’s Groceries are natural, unprocessed which means no added chemicals to preserve it for long shelf life. This is truly the only FOOD we have, once chemicals and toxins are added, the item is no longer food but a food substitute.
God has created the Human Being Supremely, our bodies are equipped to heal themselves when we take care and feed the body ‘life giving’ food!
