Detox Dishes

The body detoxifies the blood through the liver and kidneys excreting water-soluble compounds in the urine, but fat soluble toxins often get put in "storage" in our fat cells to be dealt with later.

These toxins can build up and contribute to chronic illness such as MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, cancer, skin conditions, headaches, weight gain, stubborn metabolism, and more.

Ali Miller is an integrative dietitian and natural foods expert with Naturally Nourished. She has developed a protocol for stage 3 breast cancer using a food-as-medicine approach in a research study at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Miller has been consulted by some of America's top medical institutions on how to use food-as-medicine and support wellness from the root cause rather than silencing conditions.

Detox soup:

1/2 cucumber (peeled and de-seeded plus additional cucumber for garnish)

1 Tbsp minced onion

1 clove garlic

1/2 peeled avocado

1 Tbsp lemon or lime juice

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup cilantro

1/2 cup filtered water

1/4 tsp sea salt (celtic or regular)

1/4 tsp chili powder

1 dash of cayenne pepper

1.5 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Throw avocado, cucumber, onion, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, cilantro, and water in a blender. Puree on high speed until smooth. Blend in salt, chili powder and remaining ingredients. Be sure to have the blender running when adding olive oil to best emulsify into soup. Serve, garnishing with extra cucumber cubes and smoked paprika if desired. Optional: top with kale chips as garnish.

Relieve Back Pain

If you have experienced back pain at some point in your life or if you have it now, try these simple movements to help loosen up your back and alleviate the pain. Start gradually and hold each pose for five deep breaths. Push your body until you feel a gentle stretch, but never push to the point of discomfort or pain. It should 'hurt so good.'

1. Down Dog / Child's Pose: This is a good overall body stretch and strengthen. It finds the tight areas in the body and helps to release them.

2. Pigeon Pose: Most people have tight hips, which can ultimately lead to back pain by pulling on the back muscles. Loosening the hips can provide relief for pain.

3. Cat and Cow: This stretches out the entire spine, helping the movement of each vertebrae. Creating space in the spine can help soothe a sore back.
