When I heard about the book Whole Body Reboot by Manuel Villacorta, M.S., R.D., the thing that got my attention was the 5-day smoothie detox plan, because I love smoothies. But this book is about much more than smoothies–it’s about Peruvian Superfoods and, as the cover mentions, includes a healthy eating diet plan and recipes to detoxify, energize, and supercharge fat loss. The book explains that Peruvian super foods fight cancer, reduce inflammation, boost energy, and enhance memory. There’s lots of great-sounding recipes and color photos in Whole Body Reboot–some recipes that sounded good to me were:
- Roasted Artichoke Mashed Potatoes
- Power Trail Mix
- White Bean Avocado Wrap
- Quinoa Parmesan Pizzettes
- Sweet Potato Waffles
And there’s lots of recipes for different ways to fix chicken, fish, and pork in healthy ways.
At the beginning of the book, in chapter 2, is where you’ll find the Jump-Start Reboot Diet Plan. And that’s where you’ll find the five detox smoothies. The one I decided to make, the Orange Reboot, is supposed to be made on day 2 of the plan. It’s a lightly-sweet smoothie made with a blend of carrots, orange, and papaya, along with a few other very healthy ingredients. It’s also flavored with cinnamon, which gives the smoothie a nice spicy flavor. Considering I’m not that crazy about carrots, I thought the smoothie was pretty good.
So if you want to give your body healthy reboot, you’ll have to check out the book. And here’s the Orange Reboot smoothie recipe if you want to try it out!
ORANGE REBOOT DETOX SMOOTHIE from Whole Body Reboot

- 1/3 cup chopped fresh carrots
- 1/3 of a peeled orange, chopped (I used a medium-sized orange)

Put all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
There are a total of 135 recipes in Whole Body Reboot and 4 weeks of menus. You might need to add some new ingredients to your pantry to make some of these recipes, like Lucuma and Pichuberries. It sounds like a very healthy way to eat. Have you ever tried a diet like this?
