Do you want to live the detox lifestyle but don’t know how?

Looking for a fun community and hands-on experience?

The Detox Kitchen is a group cooking club devoted to making the detox lifestyle accessible and practical in your everyday life. Join our community of health-conscious foodies who want to upgrade their health without sacrificing flavor or spending tons of time in the kitchen. We meet in person each month and explore foods and techniques to help you easily incorporate raw, plant-based foods into every meal.

The Detox Kitchen is perfect for anyone who is:

  • New to clean eating and the detox lifestyle
  • Ready to learn how to prepare healthy, plant-based foods for themselves and their family
  • Looking for a community of like-minded eaters and interested in learning more about eating high raw
  • Is super busy, but still wants to eat clean and live a detox lifestyle

….It’s also a great place to meet like-minded people and have fun!

What is the Detox Lifestyle?

Living a detox lifestyle means incorporating a broad range of plant-based, alkaline-rich foods into your diet. It means eating minimally processed and anti-inflammatory foods that support the body’s built-in ability to clean and detoxify at the cellular level. Although we are mainly food focused, we also encourage creating a toxin free environment at home and promote an ongoing practice of self-care to achieve optimum health and wellness.

The DK Food Philosophy: We support high-quality choices when it comes to animal products and dairy but encourage a high raw, plant-based lifestyle.

These classes are designed for people of all cooking levels. You’ll learn how to keep your body cleansed and detoxified, keep toxins out of your home and your food, and prepare delicious new meals for those you love.

Come to class hungry because we will be eating the foods we prepare. After each class you’ll take home the recipe for all of the culinary creations we make!
