A Day of Detox: Breakfast

Image: Julie Daniluk Spring is a wonderful time to take on healthy eating, cleansing, and detoxing - provided you do it the healthy way. My super inspiring peers, Julie Daniluk and Joy McCartney have developed incredible detox programs that cleanse and clean the body, without depriving you of any essential nutrients.

This week I'll lay out a week's worth of detoxifying eating - my favourite recipes from both books for breakfast, 10 am smoothie, lunch, afternoon snack, and dinner.

Let's start with breakfast - this quinoa muesli is wonderful given all the cold weather we've been having, and is loaded with healthy, plant-based protein to keep you satisfied all morning long.

Happy detoxing!
