5 steps to recovering your body using plant power

5 steps to recovering your body using plant power.

Matthew Dunford, chef and owner of Fine Grind coffee house in Tunbridge Wells shares the five most important steps he took when turning from a meat based diet to a plant based diet.


  1.  Take it slow 

Begin to slowly faze out animal products. Matt explains his recovery was slow & the detox was HARDCORE & probably un-acheivable if you go all.

2.  Create milestones

Introduce new tastes and flavours slowly making the transition new and comfortable so you can enjoy the food you are now eating.

3  Be present 

DO NOT get into the Vegan junk food trap. Being plant based / vegan does not necessarily mean you are healthy.
  • One way to understand what you are consuming is to begin to read the labels sound simple but this way you are taking responsibility for the ingredients and beginning to educate yourself to the quantities of protein, carbohydrates, and more importantly sugar content within the product.

4. Appreciation is the key 

Try fasting for total reset. This will totally reestablish your appreciation for ‘FOOD’ and will give your body some much needed time to detox. Discover more about juice cleaning here includes 7 free juice recipes.

5 – Be kind to yourself 

Remember that this is not a race. It is now your way of life & the adjustment will take time. Things don’t have to happen overnight, the tradition should be slow. Be kind to yourself and try to remain patient & present in the moment.
