“DETOX” SAMPLE MENU"DETOX" Sample Menu by Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo

Sample breakfast for a few weeks:

  • Seasonal fruit juice (apple-pear-kiwi for example) for a good dose of vitamins and fibre
  • 2 slices of whole wheat or spelt wheat bread (preferably with natural yeast) and a small amount of unsalted butter.
  • A handful of unsalted almonds and hazelnuts.

Lunch and dinner:

First three days:

  • Juice from 1 lemon + warm or cold water, according to preference. 
  • Chunky vegetable soup.
  • Raw and cooked vegetables with herbs, olive oil and rapeseed oil.
  • 1 green tea + 1 fruit.

Following days:
Add lean meats or white fish cooked without fat and in reasonable quantities (we always tend to eat too much meat or fish).
Add pasta, rice, quinoa or potatoes – at lunch, once every two days – no meat or fish for meals with starches.





Take a dozen unsalted almonds in a small bag and chew them slowly.




You can reintroduce fresh dairy products or cheese if you tolerate them. Limit quantities to 2 yoghurts and a small piece of cheese per day (distribute among the 3 meals). Goat and sheep’s milk yoghurt are good alternatives. They taste different but your palate will surely appreciate the novelty.


Use mainly uncooked fat (butter in the morning, 1 dose of various oils during the day) and avoid adding too much salt while cooking.
Remove the salt shaker from the table, especially if you tend to add salt before tasting! Your blood pressure will benefit greatly from this!


Do you already feel better, lighter and more energetic?

A few detox tips

Apply these tips for a while to feel lighter and healthier

  • Always favour fruits and vegetables, in all shapes and forms: raw or cooked, in juice, in soup or steamed. Some vegetables are known to detoxify the liver. You literally can’t get enough of artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, black radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, celery, fennel and leeks. Kiwi and lemon are “weighty” allies.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks such as tea (except green tea), coffee and sodas as well as fizzy drinks, even sugarless. Green tea and herbal tea are recommended instead. Drink enough fluids (1.5 to 2 litres per day of non-fizzy drinks).
  • Avoid sweet snacks, biscuits, cakes and ready-made meals.
  • Avoid meat, pork products and bread and other starches for 3 or 4 days.
  • Use as little salt as possible while cooking and don’t add salt at the table. Herbs and spices will flavour dishes nicely and lead you to discover new flavours!
