At times due to stress, contaminated food or water, pets or food intolerances our bodies can become susceptible to parasites. These parasites can cause an imbalance in our gut microbiome resulting in an array of symptoms such as digestive issues, fatigue and mood related disorders. It is important when following a parasite cleanse to remove all the nasties that parasites thrive off such as unrefined carbs, sugars (which can include fruit depending on the type of parasite), processed foods and alternative sweeteners. It is also advised to remove all grains.
Good foods to include are coconut oil, pumpkin seeds, garlic, onion and probiotic rich foods such as sauerkarut, kefir and kimchi.
2 frozen zuchinni (can replace for 1 banana if not on a parasite, candida or sugar free cleanse)
1 cup baby spinach
2 Tbs Hemp Protein Powder/rice protein powder
1 Tbs Green Powder (I used Soaring Free Superfoods Supershake Green Alkaliser which is an alkalising blend of baobab, African moringa, barleygrass, hemp powder, wheatgrass and spirulina. This mix is fantastic for making sure you get your daily greens in, detoxifying the body and rebalancing the pH of your body)
1 cup almond milk/non dairy milk
Blend all ingredents together.
Add 1 Tbs Chia Seeds to thicken if too watery
Pour into jar/ coconut bowl and enjoy :)
Add toppings Chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and sliced banana
Can add sweetener of choice if would like to sweeten further.
Can omit the banana and replace with another medium frozen zuchinni if on an elimination diet, parasite, candida or sugar free cleanse
