You can buy split moong bean in Indian grocery stores.


I also did a detox from sugar. It was a nice way to start my healthy kick ! It was difficult but I feel so much better now. Not to mention I realize I don't need that many sweets to survive! I was on which I found to be pretty helpfuly!

good luck with your cleanses!

It can pay to start weaning off coffee at least 2 weeks before the detox if you drink a lot as withdrawal symptoms can be bad if you do it too quickly.


Hi Edna - quinoa is a grain that is usually sold in the "bulk" section of your market (if you have bulk bins) or some companies sell it prepackaged like "Bob's Red Mill" along with other grains. You can also order it online.

Kitchari is a split mung bean and basmati rice dish cooked with herbs and spices. The split mung beans are usually sold with other dried beans/legumes but I find they are hard to find in stores (i'm in NH). I have ordered them online.

Good luck!


I would like to try the detox diet, but I need to know where can I purchase some of these items. Such as:quinoa, kitchari, kombucha,and what part of the market can they be found in.
