Healthy Recipes

On this page, I will be posting healthy recipes and ideas for snacks, breakfasts etc,  which can form part of an overall healthy lifestyle.

The recipes are based on my detox eating plan. The idea of my detox eating plan is to give your body enough time for a total body cleanse. It eliminates sugars, dairy, wheat, gluten, white flour products, alcohol and caffeine so that your body can start to work with nature and not against it.

You will literally kick-start health improvements and gain the best results in your initial weight loss quest.

By implementing my detox eating plan and recipes, these are the benefits you can expect:

  • Reduced body weight and body fat
  • More energy and clarity of mind
  • Increased colon function improving the digestion and elimination processes
  • Reduced health risks associated with diabetes and obesity
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Improved muscle tone and strength in your joints, tendons and ligaments.
