Doing the 12 Day Wild Rose Detox is a rewarding and can be a delicious experience. In fact, the dietary guidelines are are so good for you, that this how we should eat on a regular basis. (Click here to learn more about The Wild Rose Herbal Detox) When I put my clients on a detox, there are usually two general responses. The first type of person already eats pretty close to the detox diet, and with a couple of tweaks are ready to go! The other (and much more common) feel a little overwhelmed. It is so far from their regular eating habits that they have no idea what they are going to eat. Imagining a day without sugar, dairy, flour and fermented foods leaves them thinking there is nothing left to eat!! These are the people whom especially need to do the detox. Now, I spend quite a bit of our herbal consultation appointment discussing what to eat. (the detox kit comes with the diet outlined, but there are always questions and clarifications). I have personally done the detox many times, and have accumulated lots of recipes, and food ideas to make the experience enjoyable, and sometimes down right gourmet. I am going to share them with you, so your experience can be as joyful as mine.
There is a cook book available that is specifically designed for the Wild Rose Cleanse, so it takes all the stress out of figuring out how to eat. This is a fantastic place to start. Once you’ve done a detox, and experienced what the possibilities are, you can branch out from there. Creating your own recipes and favorite foods and quite often they become part of your regular eating as well. Here is a list of the recipes included in the Wild Rose 12 Day Detox Cookbook. If you would like to purchase one, we carry it. It is also available to purchase on our online store as well ( Click Here to purchase a Wild Rose 12 Day D-Tox Kit, or Wild Rose D-Tox Cookbook from our online store). In addition to the list, I have included some of my favorite foods and recipes for the detox, and will continue to add to it, as I discover new favorite foods!!! If you have a favorite recipe, please feel free to post it, so it can be shared with other fellow detoxers.

My favorite Snacks
- Rice Cake with almond butter and either sliced apple or black berries mmmmm….. yum!
- Popcorn – try adding some flavor with chili powder, herbs & garlic, or dare I say, butter?
No flour pancakes:
- Oats, 1/2 cup
- egg whites, 4
- cinnamon to taste
- topped with apple sauce
Blend oatmeal, egg whites, and cinnamon. Pour batter on a preheated pan, in four thin pancakes. Cook each side for two or three minutes over medium heat. Good eaten cold out of the fridge, or can be heated up the next morning in the toaster for breakfast on the run!
Foods that you may not have thought of:
- Braggs soy sauce ( it is unfermented!!)
- Butter – I know we said no Dairy, but butter is the yummy exception
- Coconut Milk – great for curry’s and in “sweet” things
- Almond Milk / Soy Milk – Unsweetened , lots of people have issues with soy on this side of the world/ Rice milk is better, BUT must have in moderation (as it is high in natural sugars) My favorite is Vanilla Unsweetened
- Home Made Jerky (beef, chicken, and seaweed)
- Red Thai Rice
- Pan fried fish with veggies (No flour!)
- if it is summer, I eat alot of salads and get the barbecue going
- if it is winter, then I eat a lot of soups and stews.
- Both times of the year curry’s are amazing
- Instead of regular rice cakes, I found “crackers”… well, rice cakes at Costco called Suzie’s Whole Grain Thin Cakes. They are puffed brown rice, quinoa & flax. Trust me they are tasty!
- In a pinch you can have canned tuna. But try and stay away from anything that has preservatives in it. Add lemon juice, some Mrs.Dash and put on rice cakes.
- Lemon juice is your best friend. It can be used in place of vinegars.
- Don’t like your coffee unless it’s double double? Try adding coconut milk. Or my favorite – green tea chai. Still has caffeine to get ya going in the mornings, but tastes really good, and slightly sweet, and does not need sweetening or cream.
- ALWAYS cook enough dinner to have leftovers for lunch. Makes life way easier.
- Missing your mayo? Make your own! - egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, pepper in a blender or food processor. ( I like adding garlic and herbs too)
- home made guacamole (super easy, avocados, lemon juice, chili powder, cumin, salt, fresh or powdered garlic, pepper, and if you like it hot, 1/2 a jalapeno) Makes a tasty topping to salads, veggies, dip and great with fish!!
