I start off every year with a "detox". Well, what I do probably doesn't count as a detox to lemon-juice-detoxer types but it works for me. It's a simple approach that transitions me out of all the holiday junk and back into my healthy eating. I cut out sweets and get my fix from loads of fruits throughout the day, eat WAY more vegetables than normal, drink smoothies with heaps of flax and greens, drink a detox tea 3 times a day, and of course, drinking more water than seems humanly possible. It's not much different than my regular eating, just a few small differences.
I got this recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's detox plan. It is very refreshing and I definitely wouldn't limit this to a "detox" recipe. I will be making this often, but perhaps next time only using the juice of half a lime. It was a bit tart.
Avocado Cucumber soup
1/2 cucumber, peeled
zest of 1/2 lime
juice of whole lime (i will use less next time if not making for a detox)
Whiz in blender until smooth.
