The Daily Benefit Detox Meal Plan

April 09, 2019

The foundation of the Daily Benefit 10-day Detox Program is the anti-inflammatory meal plan, which guides you in choosing health-promoting foods while removing inflammatory foods and chemicals from your diet, including commonly reactive foods that may be causing symptoms. This “elimination diet” focuses on low-allergenic, nutrient-dense, seasonal, organic, and if possible, locally grown foods. Most people can expect to experience noticeably more energy and focus, better digestion and an overall improved sense of wellbeing.

The plan includes the Daily Benefit detox shake for breakfast and a second shake with a salad or cooked vegetables for lunch. Dinner includes 4-6 ounces of lean protein and fresh grilled, steamed or raw vegetables.


- A SAMPLE DAY -

BREAKFAST

Daily Benefit detox shake or smoothie

OPTIONAL SNACK

½ cup organic berries or half a grapefruit

LUNCH

Daily Benefit detox shake + a side salad dressed with olive oil and lemon juice

OPTIONAL SNACK

1 cup of vegetables, like raw or steamed broccoli and/or extra protein, like a hard-boiled egg

DINNER

A large salad, 4-6 ounces of baked wild salmon served with plenty of vegetables, like sauteed broccoli, spinach or cauliflower "rice."


- FOODS TO ENJOY -

“Detox” does not have to mean deprivation! In addition to the two detox shakes, you will eat a wide variety of nourishing foods that help boost the body’s natural detoxification processes. You can enjoy low glycemic fruit, like strawberries or blueberries, in the morning and mainly protein and vegetables throughout the day. We recommend eating plenty of seasonal, organic, raw or cooked vegetables like asparagus, bok choy, broccoli, cucumber, kale, radishes, parsnips, okra, cabbage and cauliflower. For protein, you can choose from chicken, turkey, low-contaminant fish (such as cod, sablefish, wild salmon, branzino, red snapper, sardines, shrimp, crab), organic eggs and grass-fed beef. Some people use avocados in their salads, as well as summer squash and zucchini, all of which are acceptable! For a full list of foods, make sure you check out the full grocery guide.


- FOODS TO AVOID -

For the ten days, you will avoid gluten, grains, dairy, refined sugar, legumes, soy and nightshade vegetables, like tomatoes, white potatoes, eggplant, and peppers. In addition, you will also avoid high glycemic fruits, such as bananas, grapes and mango, and beverages such as coffee, soda, and alcohol. If weight loss is one of your goals, avoid nuts and starchy vegetables like sweet potato, parsnips, and yams. If weight loss is not one of your main goals, you can include these foods.


- DETOX QUESTIONNAIRE -

The Morrison Center's Detox Questionnaire will review your symptoms and conditions, and then rate your level of overall toxicity based on the answers you provided. Once you complete the questionnaire, you can better understand which areas and functions of your body are most affected. This will help you monitor for improvements in certain symptoms during and after your detox. Please take the questionnaire before you begin the detox, and then again after you complete it to see how much your symptoms improve. This is extremely valuable information!


- A NOTE ON DETOX REACTIONS -

People who eat a “Standard American Diet” may experience a few days of mild “detox” symptoms, such as headaches, food cravings, irritability, or digestive discomfort. These symptoms should only last a few days and are a result of breaking food addictions, toxin elimination and shifting metabolism, and should be followed by dramatic improvements in about 2 to 3 days. Staying hydrated and having regular bowel movements will help minimize these effects.
