Life Time Detoxification Program

Step 3: Restore

Still need your D.TOX Kit?

How To Reintroduce

You’ve made it through the detox. Now the choice is yours to continue eating clean or reintroduce the non-approved foods back into your diet. Think about how you feel now and what is most important for you to start eating again.

The foods eliminated on D.TOX can produce subtle reactions which are hard to identify as problematic until removed from your diet. To make sure your efforts are not wasted, follow our guide to restore.

Keep in mind these are the 5 most common foods that cause inflammation: Cow dairy, gluten / wheat, eggs, soy and peanut butter.

One food at a time

If you start eating more than one non-approved food group, it will be difficult to pinpoint what exactly is causing any unwanted symptoms. Spend the first 3 days post-D.TOX reintroducing the new food and being mindful of any changes.

  • Substantial reaction before 3 days = stop eating the damaging food
  • No reaction after 3 days = move forward onto your next food group

Watch portion size

Eating a small amount of the reintroduced food twice per day is enough to trigger any potential symptoms.

Listen to your body

If you notice a drop in energy, find it difficult to focus, experience achy joints, interrupted sleep, skin disruptions, acne, hives, rash, a rise of 2 to 3 pounds of weight in a day, or digestive issues, you may want to consider leaving the offending food out of your diet.

Meal Plans

Cooking For One

If you are cooking for one, halve each of the recipes in the meal plan. Most include four servings – halving the recipes (and ingredients) will give you two servings.

Cooking For Two

Follow the meal plan and recipes as written.

Cooking For Four

The Key To Meal Prep

Setting aside time on the weekends to batch cook multiple servings in bulk ensures you have easy, delicious go-to’s during the week. Batch prepping individual ingredients (like pulled chicken or roasted veggies) also allows you to easily throw together meals or grab healthy snacks.

For the recipes included in this program, set time aside two days per week (like Sundays and Wednesdays) to batch cook most of your meals for the next few days all at the same time. Then, save them in individual glass containers once they’re cooked so that you have easy grab-n-go lunches. Be sure to save the extras that you do not plan to eat this week in their own containers and freeze too – you’ll have healthy dinners ready to defrost and reheat in no time.

Here are my top recommendations of individual ingredients to batch cook:

  • Rice or quinoa
  • Roasted veggies
  • Roasted hummus and cut up veggies
  • Shredded slow cooker chicken to add to salads and lettuce wraps

Stuck in a pinch? Here are you go-to back-up plan options when you find yourself out and about, or without a pre-prepped lunch or dinner option:

  • Double-protein lettuce wrap sandwich, no cheese or mayo, add avocado or Dijon mustard.
  • Burrito bowl with double protein of choice, beans OR rice, added veggies with salsa and guacamole – hold the cheese and sour cream.
  • Bun-less burger (optional add of avocado or bacon) topped with lettuce and tomato, with a side salad or a side of streamed veggies.
  • Grocery store salad bar with fresh veggies, roasted chicken, sunflower seeds, and oil and vinegar.
  • Pick up a rotisserie chicken and a bag of microwaveable vegetables. Make veggies, top with olive oil and Himalayan sea salt to taste, and serve alongside chicken.
  • Try adding a side of microwaved sweet potato (poke holes all over with a fork, wrap in wet
    paper towels, and microwave 5-8 minutes or until pierced easily with a fork – then top with
    coconut oil and cinnamon).

Recommended Snacks

  • 2 oz. nitrate-free beef jerky
  • 1/2 cup cucumber slices + 2 Tbsp. guacamole
