Recipe Ideas for Your Detox

Need some delicious recipe ideas for your 7, 14, or 21 day liver detox. I got you covered.

While breakfasts are easy with the Dr Cabral Detox (breakfast shakes included), you will want to spend some time beforehand planning and prepping you healthy lunches and dinners so you can focus on the detox and healing.

My best advice is to not over-think or over-complicate it. Keep it simple. Stock your kitchen with a large variety of vegetables to choose from since that will be the bulk of your meals. Steam, saute, or roast your veggies. Prepare your proteins and add some healthy fats. Simple eating is the best during this time.

For each vegan lunch AND each vegan/paleo dinner, choose a clean protein off of the approved list, a healthy fat, and 2 or 3 vegetables. If weight loss is your goal, stick to lower carb leafy greens and cruciferous veggies.

Here are some easy, healthy recipes that fit the detox guidelines. If any recipes call for butter or ghee, simple use a detox friendly fat like coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado oil.

SOUPS

Soups are my favorite because they are easy to digest and easy to meal prep and freeze for later.

Real Life Examples

Below you will see photos of actual meals that i ate during my last 21 day liver detox. Please note that this was a winter time detox so I was eating mostly warm, cooked foods. And weight loss was not my goal, so you will see lots of smart carbs like sweet potatoes and winter squash.

For warmer weather detoxes, feel free to add in all the green salads, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, raw carrots, raw peppers, sprouts, arugula, etc.

If weight loss is your goal, you will be staying away from the starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, winter squash, etc. Lean into leafy greens, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels, etc.

Some of the vegetable sides seen in my photos are:

  • steamed kale with olive oil
  • steamed collard greens with olive oil
  • roasted carrots or beets
  • roasted parsnips
  • roasted delicata squash or sweet potatoes
  • cauliflower mash (made with chicken broth)
  • sauteed bok choy
  • braised cabbage
  • roasted Brussels sprouts

Some of my favorite clean proteins are:

  • broiled wild salmon
  • baked wild cod
  • roasted chicken thighs
  • instant pot black beans
  • brothy white beans
  • Indian-spiced dal made with either red lentils or split mung beans
