Raw Detox

Detoxing or cleansing is a period of time when we give our bodies a break from heavy digestion  and allow it to eliminate toxins.  Although detoxification is ongoing in the body, the amount of stress and toxins we take in daily make it difficult for our bodies to keep up with the process.  A detox allows our bodies the time to catch up with internal cleansing and recharge.  The term raw refers to a vegan diet(no animal products) where the food is never brought to a temperature higher than 118 degrees therefore maintaining all of it's digestive enzymes.  During a raw detox you consume only raw foods while your body is eliminating toxins.  The raw foods act like sponges soaking up toxins and carrying them out of your system.  A raw detox is a great way to evaluate your relationship with food and think about what you normally put in your body daily.  It can help you eliminate unhealthy habits and jumpstart any health goals you may have.  While you are detoxing there are a number of side-effects you can experience.  They include headaches, food cravings, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, irritability, and skin break-outs.  You can also experience increased energy, restful sleep, weight loss, clearer skin and mental clarity.  All of these are signs that your body is detoxing and will depend on the number of toxins you normally consume.

I offer 3 day raw detoxes which consist of nutrient-dense raw smoothies and soups made from fresh fruits, vegetables, nut milks, coconut water and coconut meat.  I offer two different detoxes, both for 3 days.  The Basic Raw Detox includes a breakfast smoothie, a lunch smoothie, a raw soup with raw crackers or bread for each day and one raw energy bar to split over the 3 days.  The Raw Detox Extra is the Basic Detox plus an extra lunch smoothie each day as well as a raw energy bar each day.  The detox extra is popular with clients who like to big workouts and feel they need a little extra fuel while maintaining their regular workouts while detoxing.  A days menu may look like this:
breakfast smoothie- spinach, strawberry, banana and brazil nut milk
lunch smoothie- pineapple, avocado and basil smoothie
dinner- carrot and ginger soup with rosemary crackers.
The Basic Detox is $115 and the Detox Extra is $150.  The next 3 day raw detoxes I am offering are February 6-8, March 6-8 and March 13-15.  Each day you can pick up a days worth of fresh food ready for you to enjoy from my home in Plymouth between 7-9:30am or in the Providence Academy parking lot(only during the school year) from 8-8:30am.  To register for a detox please email me at 

Client comments:

Hi Emily,
I am so happy with the detox experience. I lost 4.5 pounds and feel so much better. I feel this has been just a great start for me in making healthier choices i
n food. I am planning on staying on a healthier track because of the cleanse!! It was a great education!! I have to say ALL of the food was so delicious!!! I am a believer and will follow your blog in my quest to eat better. I am going to share my positive experience with all my friends and anyone I come across that has a desire to make better choices in food.

"I was amazed at the variety of flavors in the smoothies and the soups. Emily is a magician with ingredients and produces fresh, gourmet-quality meals.  You don't feel like you are deprived when you savor every last drop of the drink.  I definitely felt my body responding to the cleanse, and I was attuned to when I needed to rest and when I could be active.  I never felt light-headed or weak.  It was a great experience!"

"I felt great after and the effects are long-lasting.  I am still feeling really energetic and healthy 3-4 days after.  While I've enjoyed having 'normal' food, my craving for certain processed, high-sugar foods has been subdued.  I have, of course, had a cookie, had some popcorn but it hasn't 'felt' as good as it did before, it wasn't as comforting as it had been before the detox.  That's a good feeling.  I actually crave more fresh veggies and fruit.  While it's a disciplined event, it teaches you that you can do it if you're really committed to it.  Loved the detox.  Thanks for doing it; I'm a regular customer.  I will probably do an extra smoothie and bar next time since I will continue my regular workouts.  I craved the extra energy."

"Each morning of the cleansing detox I received fresh drinks, homemade crackers and nutritious bars. Everything was nicely packaged and easy to follow.  While I was apprehensive to taste one of the smoothie which was "green", it was amazing...I could taste the flavorful combination of vegetables, fruits
and herbs.  Emily's raw cleansing detox created a strong interest in me to learn more about the benefits of eating raw, clean foods. It's a healthy start!"

"The three day cleanse was a very positive experience for me.  My eating of late has been very unstructured.  Having pre-made, healthy foods was a great way to get into a new routine.  The cleanse also helped me realize how much food and what types are beneficial for feeling good and having energy.  I plan to do the cleanse the next time it is offered but add the extra smoothie and whole energy bar.   I enjoy my workouts and felt I needed a few more calories to incorporate with the cleanse.  When I returned to eating on Thursday,  I found I was incredibly full after eating my usual whole grain oatmeal w berries and flax."
