Food and Drink
Try to avoid drinking a lot with meals, as liquid will dilute your digestive power. In between meals, enjoy clean water, fresh juice and vegetable juice, herbal teas, or any of the other elixirs in the recipe section of The Raw Food Detox Diet. But note that the vegetable elixirs should be enjoyed on an empty stomach for maximum benefit and digestibility.
Although wine, like chocolate, is compatible with this diet program, I do not believe that these substances offer physiological benefits, despite what some studies and news stories say. But when consumed in moderation, these substances don’t interfere with the cleansing process, and they can help make the whole process more fun, approachable, sociable, and pleasing to the senses – which is important!
in loving service,
