is there a diff soup we can sub for this, I have tried and don’t care for this one….
Hey Susan, Instead of the Carrot Ginger Soup, you could try a homemade veggie-heavy vegetable soup or the Curried Sweet Potato Soup on Day 7. It’s good enough to eat twice in 1 week 🙂 -Jen
ok perfect, thanks!!
I made this soup and loved it! I was so excited how it turned out and to share it with my family. They did not like it. They were nice about it and I made them something else. I think it was the ginger. Too funny!
That’s so funny, Kerry! I LOOOVE that soup too, but you definitely have to like ginger. Your taste buds are likely changing and things are tasting different/better this week too. On Day 1, I always enjoy that morning fruit like it’s the best thing I’ve eaten my whole life. 🙂 XOXO Jen
Can you use a juicer for the carrot cucumber orange shake?
You certainly can juice the ingredients for the Cuke shake–it just won’t be as filling, but still super great for detoxing! xoxo Jen
Hi Jen – Have you created a shopping list for this detox?
I also loved the soup! I don’t have the Almond milk for Day 3’s Shamrock Smoothie. Can I use something else for this one or should I use Day 2’s shake again?
Do you have another non-dairy milk on hand? Soymilk, or even water would work for the Shamrock Smoothie since the banana is what really makes it creamy. Yesterday’s shake is fine too, I just want you to try the Shamrock b/c it’s so good! 🙂
How many rice crackers with the Carrot Soup?
10 maybe? depends on the size! 🙂
Is there a TJ premade soup that is a sub for these? Time is an issue and I am looking at your program to start. I’m also in a small town so I want to make a run to St Louis to a TJ to get what I need for the week.
Cindy, Your question got buried! So sorry. I’m sure you’ve figured things out by now, but to answer your question, Yes! TJ’s has a bunch of prepared salads and soups that are detox-friendly. I love their “Super Spinach Salad” and their Lentil soup — both in the fridge section. Or, they also have canned lentil soup that you could just add more veggies to. Hope you’re feeling great and that all is well! – xoxo Jen
Quick question, many times I eat none or very minimal carbs a day, coming from oats/ quinoa or rarely brown rice. Do you recommend having the suggested amount of carbs each day? Do these help with the detox/weight loss?
You need carbs, but they can be mainly from beans, fruit, and veg, no problem. The grains aren’t necessary. Have fun! 🙂
Hi Jen! Thanks for putting this together 🙂 I want to check if this plan is still good for males? I’m planning to increase quantities for my husband may be! Also, can I switch days, so do day 6 for day 2 and so on? Thanks again 😉
Yes, it’s great for guys too. They just eat larger quantities of food. And definitely switch the food around or eat the same thing every day if you want! Have fun 🙂 – Jen
Can the herbel teas be sweetened?
Ideally, no. But try a touch of stevia and see if that does the trick. 🙂
Good morning, is it possible to change the orange juice concentrate for just orange? (I can’t find the concentrate and I also prefer fruits)
Thank you for your job, I’m starting tomorrow but I’m afraid of feeling bad because I practise everyday sport and I don’t want change it even if I’m detoxing my body. Do you think should I stop working out? (I just take classes like barre, pilates fusion…)
Fine to use real fruit or leave out the concentrate altogether. You should be fine exercising on the detox plan. Just add extra nuts, fruit, and veggies if you feel like you need more calories. Good luck! xo
