Whole Grains: All whole grains are fine unless you have a specific sensitivity. Whole Wheat, Rye, Spelt, Kamut, Brown Rice, Millet, Quinoa, Corn.
Vegetables: Are key foods for cleansing (other than those excluded above). You may choose to limit other starchy vegetables such as potatoes, squash, etc. (they break down quickly to sugar in the intestine). Raw, steamed, roasted, baked are all fine.
Proteins: Minus the restrictions noted above all proteins are allowed. It is usually wise to limit red meat (beef, pork, bison, and lamb) on any cleansing diet. All legumes, soy and tofu are fine. Milk and cultured dairy products (buttermilk, yogurt, kefir, etc.) are fine if you tolerate them well. Please check with your doctor if you are unsure.
Naturally Fermented Pickles, Sauerkraut, and Miso: Cultured without sugar or vinegar are high in probiotic bacteria and thus can be positive additions to the diet.
Oils and Fats: Other than the restrictions noted above these are not limited; however, from a general health prospective a diet low in saturated fat and high in polyunsaturates, particularly the Essential Fatty Acids (Omega 3s & 6s) is recommended.
Note: Freshness is important when we choose oils and
nuts. Cold pressed oils are less likely to be rancid.
When cooking with oil, use minimum heat and time, and don’t use seed oils for frying. They don’t tolerate heat. Olive oil is the best choice for frying and general purposes.
