The recipes:

Healthy Espresso


1 apple
a generous piece of ginger (1-2 cm)

Juice both, beginning with the ginger, and feel instantly energized!

Plum and Blackberry Crunch
(yields 2 juices)
1 handful of ripe and sweet blackberries
1 handful of plums, pitted
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon mixed seeds and nuts (sesame, linseed, pumpkin seed, cashews)
2 tablespoons natural yoghurt
1 glass of almond milk
1 glass of water or a handful of ice cubes

Put all ingredients into the blender and blend just for a few seconds.
A creamy, crunchy and filling smoothie!

Turbo… with a kick!
(yields 2 juices)
2 apples
1/4 medium pineapple
1 handful spinach
1/2 lime, peeled
1/2 stick celery
3cm chunk cucumber
1cm chunk ginger
1/4 medium avocado
1 small handful ice cubes

Juice all the ingredients except the avocado and the ice. Pour the juice in a blender together with the avocado flesh and ice and blend until smooth.




Beetroot and potatato soup


2 beetroots
1 potato
enough vegetable broth (instant is fine) to cover the vegetables
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to your liking

Cook until the vegetables have softened, blend and add a hint of almond milk.

A few questions I have been asked since I started the seven days:

1) What should be the exact amount of each juice?
Each juice should yield at least 250ml, 400ml is fine. 500ml feels too much to me. I take it rather liberal and add some ice cubes or water if I want more liquid. Or I juice an extra apple.

2) What is the approximate overall amount you drink during the day? 
The 4 juices plus about 4-5 big mugs of water or tea. The amount depends on how cold I feel (more hot water or tea) and on how hungry I am. At the beginning of the detox I drink more than during the last days.

3) Do you take any supplements while detoxing?
I alternate between Schindele’s Mineralien and wheatgrass powder, one teaspoon a day added to the water or juice.

4) How do you fight a hunger attack?
In case of bad hunger SOS Jason Vale suggests to eat a banana, an avocado or a raw fruit bar.

5) Do you recommend sports while detoxing?
A huge “YES”. The more you exercise the better for your mind and body.
Yoga, long walks, running, a bit of rebounding are perfect.

6) What else can I do to further enhance the detox?
Take a long bath with sea salt, get a deep tissue massage.

If you have more questions, I’m happy to answer them.
