Foods you can eat while on the cleanse!

Hi, here are some Food Guidelines and Suggestions for Dr Hulda Clark’s Parasite Cleanse.

These are just a guideline, please make informed healthy decisions for yourself! CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!

I find on the cleanse, that initially it may take 3 -7 days to make a successful food transition. Even with the best of intentions I may have a little bit here and within reason use that is in the fridge/ cupboard  and not let food go to waste. I also may eat a fair amount at various stages depending on how I feel! This can help one smooth into the new phase of eating. Ideally, do not eat a lot late at night. The idea of breakfast to break - the - fast, so some form of stomach emptying is highly beneficial for your own healing. Don't go to bed starving! But a large decent breakfast will support you much more than a late night meal.

Quantity is not such a big deal and often in the past I've been known to  have five meals a day plus snacks to survive! Likewiise sometimes my body cuts right down and desires very little food. I trust my body to inform me of what I require. Ask it and listen! I also keep an eye on things and ensure I am supplying enough food to support the energy output required. Remember, just don't go to bed too stuffed!

It really depends on your body type. What I'm saying is don't go hungry, it's not about that. Be organised, stock up on nice healthy food, make good decent meals and bring nibbles or food with you if you are heading out for a while so you don't get stuck, e.g. nuts such as almonds (raw) seeds such as organic pumpkin and sunflower seeds, brown rice cakes or ryvita and hummus... Most people find they eat better on a cleanse than ever before!

I've seen hundreds of people go through this cleanse and one thing I've learned is that the best results come from those who are strict to the core with the diet and the taking of the herbs. If you are going to do it, do it properly! On a more compassionate note, if you do slip up, don't give up! Get back on and keep going. In the past I slipped up but continued anyhow and then the next cleanse I did 6 months later was much easier as my mind was clearer in that I wished to experience (out of curiosity as much as anything else) the best result possible!

I hope these pages are of some help. Good luck!

There are restaurants that cater for this type of food intake too.

In Dublin, Cornucopia, Wicklow Street and Blazing Salads, Drury St, Dublin 2 are both good options.

Around the country there are more and more fabulous conscious healthy eateries  and if you you know of one, please drop a note here and I will happily include it.

Back to business! Cleanse Foods:

Recommend dietary changes:

- Eliminate sugar

- Eliminate fruit

- Eliminate wheat

- Eliminate dairy (cow products!)

- Eliminate coffee

 

- Eliminate white rice, potatoes

- Eliminate vinegar and yeast (includes some breads, balsamic vinegar, pickled foods- Apple Cider Vinegar - such as Braggs ACV is the only exception here)


All these feed parasites- so during the cleanse you are ridding them from your body by:

- Starving them (by not feeding them)

- Taking herbs to kill them off and eliminate them from your body

- Taking amino acidsto help the body rebuild and have energy.



healthy vegThe big important question! What can you eat!?


Here’s a general list of foods that are great for you and that you can eat plentifully during the cleanse:

I've included meat/ fish/ goats products/ eggs as have seen many achieve successful results while still eating these foods. It is a personal decision though, if that helps you to eat those foods, that is fine. Likewise a vegan based approach will exclude all of these, is good for the environment, world and your body. Enter the cleanse at where it feels right to you. Make this one as easy as possible and then in 6 months or 1 year when you are ready for another, step it up a gear if you wish! Whatever appraoch you use and expecially if it is vegan, ensure that you have plenty of good oils in your intake. These include coconut oil, olive oil, avocados and flaxseed oil. At present I am going vegan when I cleanse and also do not include onion or garlic.

Bread/sugar free/dairy free bread!

Spelt bread is great. Soul bakery make a brown spelt and white spelt bread which you can use, cost €3.99. Available in Super Value, Dunnes around Ireland as well as other shops. This is a usual in my diet though I must admit I always toast it as I think it tastes better (with avocado/ hummus or coconut oil  with a sprinkle of sea salt which acts as a wonderful butter replacement).

Many farmers markets and other shops also supply various non wheat breads.

Bake your own which you can buy in a pack at the gluten free/special dietary section of the supermarket- if you are baking your own- you can try soy/almond/coconut/goatmilk instead of dairy. Although spelt has some gluten it is minimal and the body can usually deal with it quite easily.

Whatever bread you go for just remember that it is to be wheat free/ dairy free and sugar free!

Any lactose free milk - Soy Milk/ Almond milk/Rice milk. I tend to vary my milk supply each week depending on what calls me. Ensure the one you choose while on the cleanse is “unsweetened” as there can be a lot of sugar and sweeteners added to some milks. I particularly like “unsweetened” Almond Milk these days.

Occasional sweetener you can use after first 4 weeks: Stevia (buy online or in health store) This is a green leafy herb that is sweeter than sugar. It has not the same mass as sugar- which means it will not create the same effect when baking, however, you can add it into sauces or whatever you are cooking/baking for a sweeter effect. A little goes along way- it is way sweeter than sugar. A pinch or one drop is enough. It is actually good for your pancreas and doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels the same way sugar does.

Herbals teas are great-

  • green tea or mate for energy,
  • chamomile for relaxing your digestive system and sleeping,
  • mint for digestion and going to the loo,
  • nettle for cleansing, acidic blood and painful joints.
  • Sample plenty of teas while on the cleanse as they help you feel well and it’s a good time to experiment with new things.

Cheese and so on

Simply come off all dairy, and instead go for vegan cheese such as violife, available from health stores.

If you love dairy though and would rather stay on it, it is essential to give up cow dairy products, but you may be able to take some goat’s milk products.

There is a great range of goat’s cheeses available, including hard cheeses, feta, soft cheese and so on, (from lidl, supervalue, dunnes, farmers markets…)  It can be lovely with some toasted spelt bread, with some coconut oil spread on it, and tomatoe, heated as a toasted sandwich, then before serving add some fresh sliced cucumber and or spinach leaves for a healthy and tasty snack.

Breakfast Ideas and Snacks:

  • Porridge- Oats are fine, mix with non-dairy milk, cinnamon, cloves and chai spices add delicious flavour.Popeye1
  • Nonsweetened millet puffs, brown rice puffs or spelt puffs (from health store) with almond milk- very tasty
  • Scrambled eggs on spelt toast
  • Avocado on ryvita crackers, sliced tomatoes on toast with spinach and goats chese
  • Spelt pancakes, fresh salad...
  • Green juices.

Eggs: Boiled, poached, scrambled (if you are into them!)

Avocados

Tomatoes –

All on spelt toast with a sprinkle of salt

Or Ryvita crackers

Or brown rice cakes

Or multigrain cakes (like rice cakes from Aldi)

Delicious Salads

yum dinnerTry a salad at any time of day- also fantastic for breakfast - and gives the body great morning energy- that will be seen within about 1 hour in your glowing skin (no joke!).

Choose a combination of any salad foods including the above and

Lettuce

All green leaves

Cucumber, cucumber, cucumber! Love this!

All salad food-

Beetroot ( non-vinegar)

Hummus

Grated raw carrot and raw beetroot with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper- delicious!

Cauliflower, brocolli

Baby spinach, all green leaves.

Raosted vegetables

Goats cheese

Almonds/ walnuts/ macademia nus/

Pumpin/ sunflower/ linseeds...

Salad Nicoise- Lettuce leaves, olives, soft boiled eggs, flakes goat cheese.

Chicken/prawn/tofu caesar salad. Green leaves, flakes of hard goats cheese, olive oil combined with some bbq/grilled.... prawns/ chicken or tofu.

Warm grilled goats cheese salad- Salad leaves with some beetroot, almonds and warm grilled goats cheese.

Walnut, avocado and goats cheese ( or vegan cheese) salad; green leaves, have an avocado, lots of walnuts, and warm grilled goats cheese ( or ceubed vegan cheese) and lots of fresh leaves.

Roasted vegetables on a bed of salad with any of the above ingredients.

Courgette, goats cheese and basil Frittata- Use some garlic/ onion ( if you wish) when frying courgette- delicious with salad.

Brown Rice               - instead of white rice

Sweet potatoes         - Very tasty cut into wedges and baked in the over, they take a while to cook but taste sensational. Not for everyday but can have twice a week or so. Instead of regular potatoes. If you must eat a regular potato, the best way is baked in the oven as it releases less sugar into the system.

All vegetables (not too much corn or carrots as can be sweet- but a bit is fine)

Make/bake bread/ scones/ pizza bases etc- (Use spelt or look up gluten free, dairy free, sugar free recipes online- there are loads, sure try some out).

Meat/ chicken/ fish/ Tofu (if you eat them!) all fine- bbq or cook how you like and eat with salad/ veg/ sweet potatoes/ brown rice/

Instead of regular pasta, eat brown rice pasta/ vegetable pasta/ spelt pasta... Very tasty

Ideas~

Mix “Braggs amino spray”(from the store), add broccoli, chopped up mushrooms, add half a cup of hot water mixed with a teaspoon bullion, add salt and pepper, served on a bed of spelt pasta with grated or flakes of goats/ vegan cheese.

Vegan curry with lots of veg, lots of good quality coconut cream and spices on a bed of brown rice/ quinoa. Get's better day on day so make a great amount and use for a few days or freeze!

Try quinoa- its’ a South American grain instead of rice or as another option- instead of couscous- it’s really nice, slightly nutty like yourself and has protein in it which is great for giving you energy- can have it with stir fry or cold with salad. Try cooking it in vegetable stock (bouillon) or season well as it carries flavor nicely.

Try beans! Butter bean, kidney beans... these add sweetness to dishes and are a greatsource of protein.

Try Dahl! I love dahl, lentil based indian dish. Wonderful on a bed of brown rice. Mix lentils, wil carrots and even some sweet potatoe and tomatoes (if you like) with some spices. Delicious!

Soups are also a great source of nourishment. One of my favourites is butternut squash, roasted, then mixed with chilli, veg bouillion and lots of coconut cream! Yum!

Snacks:

walnuts hazelnuts and almonds 440282Raw nuts might become one of your close friends;- Almonds, hazelnuts (go organic if you can, otherwise, Aldi provide affordable options). Stay away from roasted, heavily salted and moldy nuts! Also most advise to staty away from peanuts!

Ryvita crackers, avocado...

Any crackers that are wheat free, sugar free and dairy free. – Ryvita is the main one.

Almond and all nut butters are delicious ( go oraganic - health stores sell a large organic almondt butter at quite good value).

Coconut oil- again available in Dunnes, and Super Value and health stores,- use instead of butter. Very nice with a sprinkle of salt on crackers or toast.

Try rice cake with coconut oil with avocado and sprinkle of salt and pepper for yummy tasty treat.



Try Ryvita crackers with almond butter and thinly sliced strawberry (once a week- no more than one strawberry!)


Add cinnamon- 2 teaspoons a day reduces sugar cravings massively and is good for you..

Sugar-  a teaspoon of cinnamon daily  and or/ 15 mls of apple cider vinegar in hot or cold water also helps to sort out sugar cravings and cleanse your body. Also supplement with extra fish oil/ flaxseed oil – (3 – 4 capsules daily). Some people have even come out of Type two Diabetes this way

Bon Appetit!


Thank you! Cornucopia Restaurant in South Wicklow street caters specifically for this type of food. It is a vegetarian restaurant has all the foods marked dairy free/ sugar free…etc. It has one of the tastiest fresh salad selections in Ireland and over all delicious food and cakes. A nice tofu salad in yammamouri is also quite super delicious. Japanese food can make it quite easy to abide by these food guidelines too. Let me know if you come across any other places/foods worth mentioning! Thank you.
