Kidney/Liver Detox

Fruits & Vegetables

I'm on to the final phase of my detox, it's the hardest one as it requires a 5 day fruit and vegetable fast. I was able to eat fruits and vegetables yesterday but for the next 3 days I can only drink them. So far I haven't had any negative side effects from this as some people do, but it's still early. I'm expecting by tomorrow I will have little energy. I am working from home today and Monday just in case. I borrowed about a dozen movies from a friend so that should keep me busy for the weekend. I have no plans on going anywhere.

My fridge has never been so full of fruits and vegetables, I barely have room for anything else. I tried to get a shot of all the fruits and vegetables I have right now and just realized I forgot to put bananas in the pic. I also had oranges but made them into juice and will be going blueberry picking after work today at Life Mountain Blueberries in Gold Bar. They are only $2/lb if you pick them yourself or $3 already picked.

Last night I made some Potassium Broth which I will be drinking for the next couple of days. It took longer than expected to make as I had to peel 50 cloves of garlic so was up late last night making that for today. It also has carrots, beets, celery, potato peels, and onions. It actually smelled pretty good. I hope it tastes as good as it smells.

There's also a morning flush concoction I am drinking every morning for 5 days that contains orange juice, lemon, garlic, olive oil, ginger, and water. I drank the last of my OJ this morning so am going to make some apple juice today and give that a try tomorrow.

More info on the program I'm doing can be found here.


  1. If you're making a broth you can always leave the peels on and strain afterwards. It adds to the vitamin content and you get a wonderfully healthy-looking color to match.

    Unless your program doesn't allow it, of course then don't, but when I make stock at home I leave them on and strain it all out later.

    I don't mean to sound know-it-all but I thought it might help.

  2. Yes I left the peels on everything and for the potatoes the peeling is all I put in.
