The Mini Detox Guide

This mini detox tips article is a part of my Wellness Spring Training series, a FREE 3-part workshop that’ll help you discover the secret sauce to losing weight, gaining energy & fueling your passions this spring.

( Download your free workbook towards the bottom of the post. )

Have you ever wished you could hit the reset button on your body?

Maybe it’s because of all the junk you ate last weekend. Or throughout the holidays. There are days I wake up bloated and blemished— and know I need to make a change in my diet.

A whole foods detox is a great way to kick start a new season in your wellness journey. Sometimes my clothes just get a little extra snug, I’m tired no matter how much sleep I get & I’ll crave junk all day long. These are some of the symptoms that our body could use a gentle reset. I create the detox guide to make it easy & affordable on you.

How do you do a healthy detox?

A mini detox can be completely natural (and effective)— yet it’s gonna take some work on your end. You can’t just buy a magic pill or sip tea all day long if you really want to treat your body to a health detox. As good as that sounds, our body needs fuel to thrive.

Now, I know what you might be thinking about a detox…

….because I was too. But that’s NOT AT ALL what I’m talking about.

So stay with me.

When is a detox most beneficial?

According to research, people tend to gain five to seven pounds during the winter months. Why is this?

We don’t make our health a priority. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing. We dive head first into holiday traditions (cookies, feasts & peppermint mochas), and bypass our healthy habits. Myself included.

The veggie tray is practically untouched while the cookie platter has been demolished.

No joke, this winter, I probably ate 100 cookies and guzzled more cups of coffee than I can count.

It was a special winter season with my family— and I’m all for that. Yet now that’s it’s warming up and I’m removing the layers of clothing– I am not thrilled with what I see OR how I feel.

I’m okay with devouring cookies over winter break because there’s always an opportunity for change… if we choose to accept it. And I’m ready— and have a feeling you are too.

The Spring Mini Detox Guide

I created this mini detox guide to get us out of the winter funk.

With this simple detox guide you can download for free, I’ll show you a few tricks I used to boost my energy levels and enhance my body’s overall performance. They’re simple, healthy habits that really make a difference.

Just like a car has to get an oil change to remove the gunk to run well… we have to remove the toxic buildup in our body so we can burn calories more efficiently, boost our energy levels and clear up our skin issues.

What exactly is causing our bodies to get outta whack? It has to do with the…

  • pesticides found on the produce we eat
  • hormones in the dairy & meat products we consume
  • artificial ingredients in the packaged foods we love

All of these things may not seem that big of a deal in small doses, because they’re not. Yet overtime or in large doses, they can cause build up and stress our liver and kidneys. We get tired easier. We’re more agitated. Our skin gets rashes or blemishes. Our digestive system is messed up.

These are some of the signs that your body needs an oil change… aka: a mini detox. If you’re nodding your head to this. Then download the Mini Detox Guide and take action TODAY.

    I am excited to try the mini-detox. I have also signed up to do the Spring cleanse. I am so worried about giving up coffee. I enjoy one glass of wine most evenings. And I do like the occasional sweet. I think I will be okay without wine and sweets but coffee is another story. I have been drinking coffee since I was in high school and I am not in my 50s.

    Hey Rhonda,

    Oh yes you are speaking my language! I am an avid coffee drinker and every time I do this cleanse I get so nervous about not having it. Yet after day 4 I am usually just fine and realize I don’t need it as much as I did before. We will be here for each other and help keep each other accountable. We’ve got this!!!

    Thanks so much for the Spring push, I’m about to have some pretty significant surgery on 3/28 and I’ll be out of work for 2 weeks and then not allowed to do any physical activity for 2 months. I have loved the Green Smoothies since discovering this back on the last Spring Simple 7. I did the Summer and the Winter. I know this will help me in my recovery! Thanks for doing all you do!!

    Hey Susan,

    Wow!! We truly hope you have a safe and quick recovery from your surgery. If you have any questions or need anything when you are ready just let us know!

    Take care!

    I actually am excited to try the mini detox! I wasn’t even expecting this, so it was a real treat to receive in my inbox today, and since I was already planning a grocery store run, I think it came at just the right time. I’ve been making some changes for my health’s sake and I think this will fit in nicely. I can’t wait to see the results!

    I just read through the download and I have 2 questions. First, for how many days does the mini detox last (a few days…a week)? Second, I usually buy the big English cucumbers (because I hate cucumber seeds!), and half of THAT in a smoothie? I’m thinking no. So approximately how much cucumber would that be (1/2 cup…3/4)? Thanks for your help!

  8. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    March 20th, 2019 at 11:37 am

    Hey Polly,

    This mini detox is enough for one day but feel free to do it for multiple days if you are up for it! Also the recipe calls for half a regular cucumber so that would be about 1 cup if you are wanting to measure it out. Hope that helps 🙂

    That helps a lot, Carissa! Thanks so much!

    Hello, My body and mind drag on, and it is on a daily basis. So, I am thinking this could be a sign to jump start me into feeling good, something I don’t know if I every felt and I am going to be 50 this summer so, with spring happening I am thinking that a detox would be good for me, both body, mind, and soul.
