This detoxifying juice contains all of the most potent liver cleansing ingredients, and gives your liver a gentle flush and the opportunity to heal itself. There are no side effects, apart from a bit of garlic-breath for a while. However, the grapefruit removes most of the odor. For my weekend "rockstars", this liver cleanse recipe is one of the most incredible hangover cures. It contains everything you would need to cure a night of mixing beer + wine + liquor and that bag of cheetos due to the Vitamin c, Omega 3, Probiotics, and Ginger elements. I would recommend doing this over the weekend, and in the morning. It is particularly effective if you have undertaken some light exercise such as walking or jogging prior to the liver cleanse as this helps to get the toxins moving out of the body and invigorates the lymph system.

Perfect for dipping veggies and crackers, or layering on a sandwich or lunch wrap instead of mayo.
Green Smoothie from Donna Gates Body Ecology for #candida. Green apples are a sour fruit that adds a touch of sweetness to an alkaline, vegetable-rich smoothie. Ideally fruit should be eaten alone and on an empty stomach for optimum digestion, but work just fine for most people when combined with veggies. If you find that the addition of the apple is too sweet for you, then don’t put it in. In other words, temporarily eliminate the apple if you are dealing with severe candida-related problems and use some fermented coconut meat and stevia to thicken and flavor your smoothie.
Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Original Recipe”.
This is one of my favorite lunch salads or a 'lazy weekend' snack for when I'm hungry but don't quite know what for. I usually buy a fennel bulb each week as a staple veggie, so this recipe was inspired by my lonely fennel who was begging to be included in the tuna salad. All other ingredients are always kept on hand making this refreshing salad a regular in my weekly rotation. Vitamin C-rich fennel is a crunchy and slightly sweet, adding a refreshing contribution to this dish. Lemon juice, mustard, and english cucumber add a much needed brightness and acidity to dress up a boring can of tuna fish. *Note - Be mindful of the canned tuna fish you purchase. Always read your labels and make sure your seafood is wild-caught, sustainable, and packed with only pure ingredients. For an added grain element, you can always mix in a serving of cooked Quinoa if you have leftovers on hand.
