Planning and Preparation are Key!
If you want to do the Medical Medium Liver Cleanse, then I want you to succeed! Organization is one of my Divine gifts, so I am providing this list in the hopes that it helps you get organized and prepared for the cleanse.
Remember that the first 3 days have options, so if your options are different from mine, then your grocery list will need to be modified accordingly.
Dragonfruit can be found in some grocery stores like Berkeley Bowl, though I have seen it infrequently and it’s always quite expensive. It is available in some freezer sections, though nearly as infrequently. The powder seems the easiest form to get your hands on in enough quantity for this cleanse. One 3.5 ounce bag is required for each person on the cleanse. Amazon carries it, but iHerb has it cheaper at this link and you save more if you buy 2 of them. Spend more than $20 and get free 2 day shipping.
Order the dragonfruit before you start the cleanse to be sure you have it delivered before day four.
If you need these items for the optional detox smoothie on my menu plan, they are available on Amazon or at Sprouts:
Barley grass juice powder
A word about smoothie recipes
The Liver Rescue Smoothie says 1-2 servings and the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie says 1 serving. I treat both recipes as 2 smoothies because I have a single serve blender and half a recipe is all that fits.
I drank 2 LR smoothies on each of days 4 to 7, but those are each half sized servings, so if you find you are still hungry, you can have up to 2 more smoothies using the same recipe.
My Grocery Lists
I hope these lists are a helpful resource! Click on each one to read and download.
I have my lists organized by days and also by stores based on preferred quality and price. On the first cleanse I bought all of the items for days 1 to 3 and found I had some stuff left over simply because I did not eat as much of some of the produce as I purchased. So check your supplies on hand before purchasing more for the subsequent days.
One potato is required on day 7 (or squash or sweet potato) and I simply added it to my list for the first 3 days so I don’t have “one potato” to hunt down on my third trip to the store. I’m efficient like that.
Each list is per person.
Yep. It’s a LOT of food!
