We believe that just three days of wholesome, nourishing food can transform your energy levels, reduce bloating, improve your digestive health and even curb that 3pm sugar craving. We outline the nutrition philosophy that will have you feeling great in just three days. This is the perfect, accessible and manageable solution to your pre-holiday panic, post-bank holiday indulgences or simply as a means of re-setting your habits for good.


Three Day Reset Nutrition Philosophy

Eliminate alcohol and reduce caffeine

These both affect our blood sugar levels and it has been proven that when our blood sugar levels are more stable, we are less likely to crave high sugar foods and are more likely to maintain a healthy weight. A single shot of coffee a day is fine, but try simple swaps like having a cup of herbal tea in place of that extra caffeinated cup and alternate a glass of water with alcoholic drinks each round.

Avoid wheat, dairy and refined sugars

All our food is free from these and created using only seasonal and local ingredients. While you may not have an intolerance to wheat or dairy, eating foods that are designed to work with your body, not against it, will help the natural detoxification process. Thankfully, we now have great alternatives, with a plethora of plant-based milks on the market (shout out to our favourites Oatly), and good quality gluten-free oats and flour readily available.

Stay hydrated

Each day you should aim to drink 5 glasses of lemon water (juice of 1/2 lemon to 300ml of water) throughout the day, 4 mugs of herbal tea throughout the day and one cup of green juice. We love this green juice recipe - https://www.detoxkitchen.co.uk/recipes/cucumber-pe....

Breakfast

Research shows that those who eat breakfast have a more balanced diet throughout the day. Make sure to eat a breakfast that contains slow-release carbohydrates (to maintain steady energy levels) as well as a little protein, and healthy fats to help keep you feeling fuller longer. Try this Peach Smoothie Bowl - https://detoxkitchen.co.uk/recipes/peach-smoothie-....

Lunch

Try choosing well balanced meals made up of lean proteins, complex carbohydrates (brown rice, quinoa), healthy fats (nuts, seeds, avocado) and plenty of vegetables (more colourful the better). This combination of protein, fibre and fat is a great way to keep energy levels up between meals and ward of snack cravings. Why not cook a big batch of this Squash Tikka Masala and enjoy leftovers for your lunch - https://detoxkitchen.co.uk/recipes/squash-tikka-ma....

Dinner

Keep your evening meal light and pack it full of nourishing ingredients. Try combining tryptophan rich foods (poultry, tofu, salmon) with a carbohydrate (sweet potato, brown rice, quinoa) as this can help with the production of melatonin which helps to control the sleep cycle. We like this Baked Salmon with Sweet Potato and Rocket Salad - https://www.detoxkitchen.co.uk/recipes/oven-baked-....
