What can I drink this week?

YES to:

  • coconut water
  • almond milk/coconut milk
  • herbal teas
  • coffee (try to keep it to one cup a day)
  • green juices
  • smoothies
  • water

Please AVOID:

  • milk (esp. pasteurized)  Pasteurization destroys lots of the naturally occurring beneficial bacteria and vitamins in milk.
  • soy milk (soy is full of the hormone estrogen and has been linked to thyroid problems)
  • soda
  • sports drinks
  • fruit juice (contain lots of sugar and fructose)
  • alcohol
  • kombucha (bacteria and yeast mixed with sugar and water – not as detoxifying as you may think)
