Combining nutrient-rich, whole food cleansing with convenience, this collection of low-calorie recipes for the electric slow cooker enables a healthy way of detoxing, that is, without fasting, skipping meals, or relying on supplements.
Rid your body of toxins, lose weight, and satisfy your taste buds with the help of Healthy Detox Slow Cooking. This cookbook contains over 150 delicious and nutritious recipes to help you detox while still nourishing your body, and giving you more time do things outside of the kitchen. A common misconception about detoxing is that it requires taking to extremes, such as fasting, liquid dieting, and buying expensive vitamins, supplements and other so-called “miracle drugs.” However, they key to a healthy detox can actually be found in lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains- rich in essential vitamins and antioxidants. When prepared in a slow cooker, the dishes will be so tasty that you’ll forget they are free of extra dressings, sauces and preservatives. Besides saving time and energy, you’ll enjoy these health benefits of slow cooking: • Many slow cooked vegetables retain more of their disease-fighting nutrients than the same vegetables prepared by boiling or simmering. • Eating food prepared in the slow cooker reduces consumption of processed foods and therefore, decreases the intake of sodium, fat and calories. • Slow cooking helps preserve natural juices from vegetables and meats, eliminating the need for extra sauces and flavoring. • Certain ‘heat friendly’ vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, kale and cabbage release more healthy vitamins and antioxidants when cooked than their raw counterparts. Added sections on slow cooker tips, nutritional information, and a detailed introduction to detoxing make this cookbook one to keep on the shelves handy for any meal or occasion.
