- Detox day

Today is the D day, the detox day.

Everything was organized, all good, I am kind of off today so I decided to have a pajama day. That kind of day when I don’t even have a shower… I might brush my teeth, eventually.

As a pajama day happens once every few month, it has to be well organized to make the most of it. All the conditions were met : I am off, I haven’t had a pajama day for month so it’s gonna be great, I have a lot of paper work to do and it was supposed to rain (actually it’s shinny but I am hoping it’s gonna rain, I cannot be inside if the sun in shinning).

As my friend asked me: why now ? Because today was the perfect day, I can stay home in case I would faint and so I can crawl to my bed.

I thought about that detox for a long time. One year. I would prefer to stay home and eat chocolate cookies dipped in my coffee for breakfast and end-up the day in bed in front of a girly movie while eating a cassoulet. That’s a real pajama day for me !

It’s not going to happen today, as I will do my first detox ever… And maybe the last one too.

Marie Claire (my bible) that I read for 20 years gave the ‘one day detox menu’ in an issue one year ago.

You will just need a blender, vegetables and fruits.


  • 2 carrots
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 banana

Add 2 cups of mineral water and agave sugar if you want it sweeter.

 The taste is nice but it’s far too much, I finished my ‘breakfast’ at 3pm as those quantities gives you 2 full blenders so I decided to skip the lunch menu and go straight to the ‘afternoon snack’ menu.

I give you the lunch one in case you manage do drink it all on time.

Lunch :

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 apple
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 beetroot
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 bunch of celery


Afternoon snack’ menu:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 small box of raspberries
  • 1 small box of blueberries
  • 1 glass of almond milk



  • 1 apple
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bouquet of parsley
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 full hand of hemp seeds
  • 2 glasses of mineral water

This one is interesting… very green, so green, but you can finally happily chew for the first time of the day. So much parsley!!! The taste was good even if you feel like a cow grazing.

So basically, it was a bit hard for me, I didn’t feel hungry but I felt the need to chew, to crunch and indulge myself with something I really like on my day off.

I follow their menu scrupulously, even if I didn’t like the idea of buying blue berries and raspberries now, it’s not the season at all. I eliminated the strawberries in the ‘afternoon snack menu’ as it was above my strength to buy some in March!

They advise to do this detox with seasonal fruits and veg( Marie-Claire is good). The menu they give is far too big anyway.I still have some green dinner concoction left.

So let’s privilege the seasonal fruits, we can put a bit less or have a detox for 3 days with the quantities they give. It will not be my case, I am back to routine from today on, breakfast with coffee, butter and jam… I am happy that I did and stick to it the whole day. Regarding my physical state, I haven’t seen any difference, not on my skin nor on my energy, knowing that in one day I wouldn’t be transformed. To do it once in a while is still good to absorb the vitamins better than when our stomach is full and being able to tell yourself : ‘yes!!! I did it!’ is a very good feeling.
