For this three day detox diet you will need a juicer and a blender, preferably high speed. This program is based on a cleansing diet that was created by raw food chef, Jill Pettijohn.
Begin each day with herbal or green tea; you can drink as much herbal or green tea as you like during the day.
Consume your juices and soups two to three hours apart and be sure to drink lots of water in between. Ideally your juice or soup should be prepared just before consuming but if this is not possible just prepare your day’s supplies in the morning and store in glass containers in the fridge.
End each day with a relaxing tea such as chamomile.
