Days 6 and 7 – Cleanse days

These 2 days are designed to give your digestive system a rest, by eating only liquid foods. They are best done at the weekend, when you don’t have to rush around too much. Try to take it easy and only take gentle exercise. You could try doing some yoga, meditation, having a massage or simply reading a good book, anything that will help you to de-stress and relax. The digestive system can only function properly when we are calm and relaxed.

Mid-afternoon snack: Beauty & Go DETOX

2 garlic cloves, crushed
100g red lentils
250g carrots, peeled and diced
2 tbsp coriander, chopped
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds

  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds, cook for 2-3 minutes then add the onion, garlic and carrots. Sauté for a further 4-5 minutes
