Earlier in the month The Hour’s man in the field Bruce Devlin was tasked with going on a liver detox. Popular with several A-list celebrities, the diet offer many health benefits including a feeling of complete freshness and being revitalised after a festive party season.
This week we have already seen him drawing up a shopping list of healthy food-stuffs and know it was time to start the big detox.
For the specific detox that Bruce has decided to follow, plenty of water at regular intervals is a must, as this helps cleanse the body of toxins and acids. However Bruce was soon bored of the ‘tedious’ taste of water and fancied something delicious – and nutritious – to help it down with.
But there was to be no tasty lunchtime roll as Bruce soon realised the magnitude of the task ahead. Where as last week he may have been settling down to a nice slice of cake, brown bread and hempseed butter was all that was on the menu today.
Hempseed contains a whole host of essential amino acids and can be eaten raw, ground, prepared as tea or even made into milk (similar to soy milk). But for all its benefits, Bruce was having trouble looking at his hemp butter, never mind eating it.
“This doesn’t look too inspiring,” said Bruce before tucking into a slice. “It smells of agriculture and it’s green like snot. Disgusting.”
Ending his tiring and healthy day slump out on the sofa, Bruce soon faced up to his biggest fear – a wine bottle. However, his temptation soon subsided when he found out it had already been drunk!
