You’ll see from the recipe pack that I created for this programme that there is the option of having juices. I am a big fan of juicing because it allows you to get very concentrated nutrients inside you in a way that makes them incredibly easy for your body to absorb. So, if you make sure you’re juicing some of those detox superfoods I talked about last week, this is a win on every level. 

If you’ve been thinking about investing in a juicer, now is the perfect time. My preference is for a slow, masticating juicer because this extracts more juice than the alternative (a centrifugal juicer). In addition, it juices more slowly and more gently, less heat is created during the process, which means more of the nutrients remain intact. 

For this second week of your programme, you might like to try introducing a juice at breakfast-time and perhaps having a smaller portion of one of the breakfast recipes. Alternatively, consider having a juice as a snack to make use of these fabulous foods. 

The juices are optional. I recognise that not everyone will have access to a juicer. If you don’t have a juicer, please do not worry. You are still going to get all the benefits from this detox programme! 

Like any piece of kitchen equipment, prices vary enormously. I’ve seen slow juicers in Aldi for less than £50. Equally, you could spend £500 on a top-of-the-range one. One of the biggest differences is how wide the chute is where you add ingredients. The wider the mouth for adding ingredients, the quicker the job will be. This is the one I have, and it does the job well – https://amzn.to/3vwQWoX
