Spring Detox – Detoxify the body with healthy & homemade juices

Spring is finally putting out its feelers and our tired bodies find it difficult to get going after the long winter months with hearty food and little exercise. In order to awaken our energy from hibernation and to detoxify the body, here are two delicious and incredibly healthy juices you can make yourself - without an expensive juicer.

When and how to detox?

There is no wrong time for a detox cure, but the body is more stressed after the winter than after the summer. Depending on the detox area and the foods or herbs used, a detox or purification program can last up to several weeks with 2x days per week. However, before any juice or detox regimen, you should always do a colon cleanse to bring your body to a neutral state. You can either take Epsom salts or do a colonic. Dried fruit, sauerkraut or ripe papaya with seeds also effectively cleanse and detoxify the intestines.

After the colon cleansing, you should avoid everything that is not good for the body:

  • alcohol

  • nicotine

  • Poor husbandry meat

  • Fast food

And instead, other foods lead to you:

  • Fruit Vegetable

  • healthy protein

Which fruits and vegetables are particularly suitable for detoxification and purification cures?

  • horseradish, ginger

  • tomato

  • carrot

  • celery

  • cucumber

  • spinach

  • fennel

  • Beetroot

  • Apple

  • pear

  • strawberry

  • Citrus fruits: lemon, lime, grapefruit

You need these kitchen utensils to prepare delicious detox juices

Depending on requirements: sterile bottles, strainer, bowls, knives, wooden board as well as a manual juicer and a ceramic grater.

  • 1 lemon

  • Approx. 50 - 100 ml of water

  1. Grate the celery and cucumber, reserving the juice and shredded fibers in a bowl.

  2. Juice the tomatoes and the lemon by hand and collect all the pieces here as well.

Our tip:

Fresh juices contain no fiber, which is why they oxidize much faster than smoothies. That's why you should drink the juices as soon as possible or leave them in the fridge for a few hours at most.
