Recipes

Here are a few of the recipes I enjoyed (and still enjoy) from the Total Wellness Cleanse. I have added a couple of my own recipes too. I have added or replaced a few ingredients as I went along, depending on what was available to me at the time. You can do the same. In the cleanse guide, we’re encouraged not to panic if we don’t have all the ingredients. I have substituted a few ingredients myself which I mention in the recipes below.

Immune System Booster Juice

Makes 1-2 servings (around 500 ml)

  • 1-inch piece of root ginger (if you don’t have root ginger substitute with 2 tbsp of ground ginger)

  • 1 lemon
  • 5 stalks of celery
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 tsp of cayenne pepper or less if it’s too hot for ya!

Method

  1. Firstly, juice carrots and celery in a juicer (save the pulp that is left over, we’re going to use it later)
  2. Add carrot and celery juice to a blender
  3. Add ginger, garlic, cabbage and juice of lemon juice to the mixture

Add cayenne pepper and stir!  Aaaaaah. You may think you won’t enjoy this drink but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it.

This a great immune system boosting drink. It has ginger which is antiviral and is also a very good source of zinc. The juice also contains garlic which is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.

Walnut, Banana and Blueberry ‘cereal’

There are no grains here so technically it’s not really a cereal but I will call it that anyway as that is what most people can relate to! Nevertheless, lets get on with the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries or raspberries
  • 4 tbsp of flaked almonds
  • 2 tbsp of hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp of sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp linseed (flax) seeds
  • 2 tbsp of walnuts
  • 1 banana (optional) – only add a banana until after you have finished the cleanse phase as it’s a sweet fruit.

During the 14 day cleanse we’re advised to only consume low sugar fruits such as berries, pears and apples. You can slowly introduce sweet fruits such as banana back into your diet during the maintenance phase.

The majority of cereals today have a high sugar content. If you check the back of your cereal box and find out how much sugar is in one serving, you’ll be shocked! I sure was!
