21 Day Detox and Fat Shredder Meal Ideas

21 Day Detox and Fat Shredder Meal Ideas

If you don’t know this about me, I like to drink red wine and cook. And we all know RED WINE IS GOOD FOR YOU. OK antioxidants are, alcohol, not so much. But really, it’s the sugar I think I’m addicted to, in the grapes. (That makes wine so yummy!)

So, when you’ve had too much sugar, or should we say too much wine, or pizza, or french fries or whatever your vice may be, it’s a good idea to cleanse the body. How would your car run if you never changed the oil? Or if you never cleaned out your oven or your garbage disposal?

OK, you get the point, you are full of it. And it needs to go. “GOT TO GO!”

If you are known to have headaches, fatigue or have trouble losing weight, detoxing may be the answer. This also means cleansing the palette so you can break any addictions you have. Your palette gets accustomed to things like fat, salt, and sugar. To the point where you may crave it and not even realize you are eating it hidden in processed foods. Detoxing is a process, that for some, feels like a lot of work. But I promise you; the rewards outweigh the pain. The wonderful side effect of detoxing? WEIGHT LOSS! Oh yeah, skinny jeans here I come!

I recently went through a 21 day detox, which I like to do at least once or twice a year.

Not only to jump start weight loss but to detox my blood, liver, colon and small intestines. It is amazing how good you feel even after the first four days! Not to mention, I went down a size the first week and I wasn’t even working out!! Rest is more important while cleansing than a hard workout.

Whether this is your first time participating in TLS or you’re stuck in a plateau, this 4-7 day detox will curb your appetite for sweet, salty and fatty foods while supporting your weight management efforts. Bursting with fruits and vegetables, this detox is the first step to the brand new you.

There is a method to follow with supplements to help you with willpower, shakes to help with the balance of fiber and protein, when you are on the go, as well as basic nutrition and antioxidants to balance your cravings and clean your body. This 21-day kit also comes with a 7-day detox kit. (USE code 15OFFMA to get 15% off plus free shipping.)

I have listed below how your first week will look like. There should be plenty of pre-planning to make sure you have sufficient produce at your house, as you will be eating lots of vegetables during detox. And of course, organic is best when possible but it’s better to eat a conventionally raised apple than a bag of chips. So eat the apple but wash it with a fruit and veggie cleanse.


  • Absolutely no alcohol
  • One serving or no coffee, soda or other caffeinated beverages
  • No grains or starches
  • Please NO dairy
  • Water (minimum of 8 cups per day)
  • Daily journaling
  • No sugar (other than those found naturally in fruits and vegetables) or artificial sweeteners
  • First thing every morning, drink the juice of 1/2 a lemon in a cup of warm water


  • Do not engage in strenuous physical activity, even if you are used to it. Instead, participate in yoga or gentle stretching.
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep. You may feel more tired than usual the first few days of detox. By the end of the week, you should feel energized.
  • Use spices and herbs, small amounts of low-sodium soy sauce, salt, pepper, vinegar, and mustard.
  • Choose raw, or lightly steamed vegetables.
  • Do not skip meals.
  • This is a great time to meditate, listen to relaxing music and engage in other stress-reduction activities.
  • Think about the commitment you are making to yourself, what you stand to gain and how accomplished you will feel.
  • How often you participate in a four to seven-day detox program will depend on your particular needs. Some people choose to complete the detox up to four times a year (every three months). It is recommended that you undergo a detox program one to three times each year.

It is totally possible to travel and definitely possible to work all week while detoxing.

I packed all the food you see below for my husband while he was driving 10 hours and out of town for an unexpected trip for a couple of days. As long as you can bring a cooler, or have access to purchase fresh vegetables, it’s all good! Fruit and veggie bowls for snacks, vegetable soup for lunch, kale chips, apples, kiwi, boiled eggs and cooked greens for breakfast. That’s a Garden of Eating right there!



Get the TLS 7 Day Detox List details. Print or download this list for grocery shopping.

It is very important you only eat approved foods. This week is only 7 days. You can do less but I have found a week to be magical. You can do anything for 7 days. Think about why you are doing this and the reward of how good you will feel and look. Everything you need including the 7-day detox with fiber and release tablets will be in a TLS 21 day challenge kit.

You do not have to use supplements or the detox kit, shakes etc but in this day and age, it really helps jumpstart weight loss, when people are on the go so much and eating processed foods. I think the CORE supplement that you take before your two largest meals are like will power in a bottle and will help make this week easier.

Meal Prep

Detox doesn’t mean starvation!

This is when you need to get up early and make time to take care of yourself. Below is a beautiful breakfast of organic steamed beets I picked up at Costco, steamed carrots with fresh grapefruit and pastured eggs sautéed with spinach, green onions, cayenne, basil, thyme, chives, parsley, and a little detox tea.

Truffled Chicken and Wild Mushrooms (See recipe here)

Garlic, Lemon and Herb Chicken Breast (see recipe here)

Leafy Dark Greens, you need them, your body likes them and you will, too (eventually :))

Food prep for a detox week means lots of greens! Sauté a giant red onion in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil until soft then add all the stems of all greens chopped small and about 10 or 15 cloves of garlic smashed. Then add chopped greens, whatever mix you like. I added 2 bunches kale and 5 bundles of swiss chard plus some Chinese greens and my favorite: a plastic bag full of collard greens. I seasoned with cayenne. Makes about 15 cups cooked greens.



Easy homemade Creamy Lemon Dressing (see recipe here)

Zucchini Noodles with Beet Marinara (See recipe here)

I sometimes need to get creative with 21-day detox breakfasts, really out of boredom as you can see here with this one. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but we are both pleasantly surprised! It’s a lovely combination of sweet and spicy! Steamed broccolini sautéed with beets, salsa, spinach, fresh cilantro, southwest seasoning and hot sauce with eggs over medium!
