INTRODUCTION

The basis for a healthy diet is simple. As human beings like to pretend we don’t know what is good for us. Sometimes we straight up deny the truth we know and feel so deeply. We gorge ourselves on processed, sugary and illness-inducing food then wonder why we aren’t feeling well and never quite right, let alone at 100% optimal performance.

There is incredible power in the simplicity of being in tune with yourself and nature, to be living pure and clean. Root vegetables such as carrots and sweet potato, lean meats, eggs, lots of leafy greens, water and herbal tea are all we need for a healthy and happy life. Food is fuel. When you treat it as such, everything else falls into place.

WHAT THIS IS NOT

Our tea is not a typical skinny tea. Our herbal teas are masterfully blended from the highest quality ingredients to maximise their efficiency and impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.

WEEK ONE

This week take your ingrained habits and transform them into a daily routine that can serve you, for life. We take away your beloved morning beverage (coffee anyone?) and evening nightcap (glass of wine?) to replace it with a peaceful daily ritual which will allow you to connect with yourself and restore balance. Allow yourself to take the time and slow down for the next 28 days.

  1. Drink 2-3 cups of Detox AM tea in the morning and Detox PM in the evening.
  2. Eat garlic daily. To offset the smell of garlic take 15ml of Chlorophyl (available at most pharmacies and health food shops). If you experience an upset tummy after garlic, prepare our Digestive Tea beforehand and have it directly after to ensure it doesn’t happen.
  3. Remove all coffee and alcohol from diet.
  4. Remove all naturally occurring and processed sugars from diet. This means no sugar, no fruit, no honey, no raw sugar, no stevia, rice malt syrup ETC.
  1. Treat yourself to a massage or myotherapy session.
  2. Replace cooking oils with Organic unrefined coconut oil only. Still use Australian Extra-Virgin Olive oil for salad dressings.
  3. Replace cooking salt with pink himalayan salt only.
  4. Avoid going out for meals as you can never guarantee how they are prepared and the exact ingredients used.
  5. Buy some amazing salts and soak in your tub daily for the first week. We love straight up EPSOM salts, or the delicious range from EpZen.

2. WEEK TWO

  1. Continue with all protocols from Week One.
  2. Remove all dairy, seeds, legumes and nuts from diet. This means no milk, milk replacements, soy, nut milks, rice milks, cheese, yoghurt.
  3. Go for an hour long walk each day.

3. WEEK THREE

  1. Remove all yeast, wheat and grains from diet. This means breads, rolls, noodles, pasta, etc.
  2. Enjoy a yin yoga class. Slowing down in yoga is the perfect compliment to our busy yet sedatory lifestyles. Yin is the ideal accompaniment to strength training as it allows the body to enter into a state of rest that encourages growth. We love Kaya Health Clubs and their incredible Yoga Program!

  5. Free-range, organic, grass-fed and grass-finished where possible.
  6. Absolutely nothing pre-marinated.

Shopping:
  1. Find your closest farmers market – we love Pino’s Fine Produce at Prahran Market. They do $10 veggie boxes every Sunday.
  2. Find a great butcher – we love Hagen’s at Prahran and QV Market.
  3. They have amazing deals on various types of meat and it’s all organic, grass-fed and finished.
  4. Scour the ‘reduced for quick sale’ sections of your supermarket, especially from the Woolworths Macro range – buy it in bulk and freeze any meat you won’t use that week for future meals.
