The Two Day Cleanse

Mention the word ‘cleanse’ and many people think firstly of starving their bodies and trying to survive on lemon juice and water. But there’s a two-day cleanse created by Dr. Oz (you know, he’s Oprah’s go-to medicine guy), that’s pretty easy to do and is super tasty.

The cleanse focuses on eating whole foods, 6 times a day (with snacks). Think smoothies, delicious vegie soup, and an enzyme rich pineapple and kale juice, too. The foods in this cleanse are packed with nutrients believed to boost the activity of the enzymes and nourish the body's most important detoxifying organs—the liver, the lungs, the kidneys, and the colon. These parts are cleaned out so they can perform at the best and have you feeling even better.

The best part is that you can achieve this all in two days! It works as a great weekend cleanse so that you (hopefully!) have more time than usual to cook and prepare the delicious meals to make sure you follow the program to a tee, and achieve the best results.

swiish cleanse tips:
Get at least 8 hours sleep
Don’t eat after 7pm
Drink plenty of water – sorry… we know you’ve heard this a million times before but it’s critical!

Prepare for the cleanse by knowing what you are going to make in advance and shopping for all the ingredients. Take a look at the following recipe which makes a delicious, wholesome breakfast during the two days.
