Intro to the 3-Week Body System Reboot

“No” Foods

Strictly avoid these for the first three weeks. If you cheat, no shame, but you’ll have to start over:

  • All Grains (wheat, spelt, buckwheat, rye, barley, oats, rice, corn, etc.)
  • Quinoa (quinoa is officially a seed, but we’re going to withhold this one during the jumpstart period)
  • Potatoes
  • Beans and Legumes
  • Peanuts (they are legumes)
  • “Bad oils” No canola, vegetable oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, etc. (see safe oils in the “yes” foods)
  • Dairy
  • Butter (you may use clarified butter – ghee)
  • Nitrates (some bacons, pepperoni, lunch meats etc. contain these)
  • Watch out for bacon. Most bacon contains either nitrates or sugar (or both)
  • Processed chips, crackers, etc.
  • Processed foods (Try to limit canned foods as much as possible and, when making an exception, check and double check labels to make sure ingredients are all safe)
  • Sugar, honey, maple syrup, jellies, jams, or artificial sweeteners, etc.*
  • Dried Fruit
  • Sugary fruit (berries are allowable in close moderation
  • Alcohol
  • MSG, food dyes, artificial flavors (avoid these forever)
  • Soy
  • Fruit Juice (a small amount of citrus juice is fine in salads, recipes, etc.)

 “Yes” Foods

Food, glorious food! Enjoy these beautiful foods in abundance…and be sure to get creative! Food is art!

  • Be sure to eat PLENTY of good fats and leafy greens)
  • Lots and lots of healthy, rich bone broth
  • Beef, chicken, lamb, fish, shrimp
  • Free-range Eggs
  • Vegetables
  • Mushrooms
  • Fruits (berries are suggested and in limited quantities, and avoid sugary fruits)
  • Coconut
  • Yucca
  • Hearts of Palm
  • Seaweed
  • Nuts (limited quantities)
  • Seeds
  • Olives and capers
  • Herbs
  • Himalayan Sea Salt
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Quality Vinegar (check for sweeteners)
  • Fresh lemon or lime juice
  • Avocados and “good fats” (super good for you!)
  • “Good oils” (coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil)
  • Coffee and tea (without sweetener or dairy)
  • Young Living’s Vitality Drops (water flavoring w/ electrolytes and essential oils)
  • Kellyann’s Collagen or Protein Shakes
  • *Monkfruit and Stevia (both are natural, and neither of them raise blood sugar levels)

*Stevia is a completely natural sweetener extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. Because of this, and because of the important nutritional benefits of NingXia Red, we encourage one shot of Ningxia Red per day, but make sure it counts as your daily fruit allowance. If you are trying to break a sugar habit, avoid stevia or monkfruit all together during the 21 days.
