Spring Cleaning Detox
  • 1 teaspoon of whole flax seeds.
  • 1 red apple, peeled and sliced.
  • 8 snack-sized peeled carrots (or 2 normal carrots, peeled and chopped).
  • ¼ inch nub of fresh ginger root, skin removed.  (should be moist)
  • 1 cup of lukewarm water.
  1. Just one teaspoon of flaxseed added to one cup of lukewarm water will release the slippery mucilage necessary to gently shed toxins through a natural laxative process.  The seeds need to soak for a half hour to begin this process and once in the system, you will experience their glorious efforts 20-40 minutes later.  You will know that you have successfully created flaxseed water when the water above the seeds appears to have a film and the seeds have become gooey.
  2. Throw your peeled & chopped carrots into your blender or magic bullet followed by your peeled and sliced red apple, and your quarter-inch long nub of your freshly peeled ginger root.  Pour the water and seeds into the blender (you might need to use a spoon to transfer the gooey seeds!) and start blending!
