For those who have not done an elimination diet before start with one day!
The more familiar and comfortable you are with food detox the longer you can go! – well again, use common sense.
YES – this is all you eat for the time frame you decide on. One day, 3 days, 7 days, 10 days!
Water and tea of course. If you must ONE cup of coffee. 
Ideally 3 times(meals) a day within a 12 hour window. More often if you require.
Serving size should be filling!

Base Recipe

4 cups shredded or 1″ square pieces of cabbage minus the core of the cabbage
2 large onions thinly sliced
3 large garlic cloves minced or grated
4-6 stalks of thinly sliced celery or chunks if you prefer
4 carrots chopped in different styles – circular or sticks
1/4 bunch of parsley chopped
2 tbsps of olive oil or butter or avocado oil
2 litres of Vegetable stock – homemade your trusted brand or some use bullion cubes
Salt and Pepper to taste


Sauté onions until the onions are clear…add garlic, celery, carrots, quick stir and sauté – does it need more oil? A wee bit of water?
Add cabbage and top with vegetable stock – salt and pepper. 
Simmer at a higher heat for 15-20 min and continue at a lesser heat for 20 minutes until cabbage is soft.
Add parsley with about 10-15 minutes cooking time left…
How much easier can it get?

Options are important!
Because if you are doing this for an extended period of time ie 7, 10, or 21 days – variety is nice!
Ideally, we want low sensitivity foods.
Spices: Franks red hot?, Curry?, Braggs amino? Caraway seeds (hungarian style) poultry dressing or sage etc? (Ukrainian style) – come up with more and share with me.  Better after the base pot is cooked and spice it up per serving. Different each time.
Other veg? zucchini, green beans, tomatoes diced with the juice, no peppers, or mushrooms, potato in moderation or chick peas.
Correct ! There is not meat in this recipe. In some situations this may be appropriate for you to add turkey, or a “clean” wild fish.
