What should you cut from your diet to cleanse?  

Say goodbye to industrialised and inflammatory ingredients such as grains/gluten, dairy, vegetables oils and shortenings, sugar, refined salt, ready-to-eat foods, snacks and treats and reset the senses and recalibrate your taste buds and hunger signals. Learn to desire healthy foods and lose your cravings for sugar and processed foods.

She then enjoys another plunger of herbal tea before enjoying a dinner that is either similar to her lunch or a ‘big bowl of vegetable soup with some sort of protein’ 

Ms Koullouros also adds fresh herbs and citrus juice and zest and a some of her Mexican Herb & Spice Blend to her soup. 

She ends the evening with a final cup of tea.

‘[I love] butter made from high quality, cultured, pastured cream. I love butter so much it goes on everything hot. Such a good source of vitamin A and D,’ she said.    

Ms Koullouros also recently revealed the ‘simplest’ way to make a tea. 

‘Simply steep your teabag or loose leaf tea in cold water for only two to 12 hours. No water heating process is necessary,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘This is different to making an iced tea which is made with hot water and then iced or refrigerated to cool. The benefits? Well for starters it’s easier. No extra infusion vessel is necessary aka a teapot, so less cleaning time.

‘It’s as refreshing as an iced tea and there is less astringency because the extraction time is much slower producing a lighter-bodied tea. In fact, sometimes the flavours released can be remarkably different and delicately beautiful.’
