Hello Spring! We are all so happy, excited and ready for you!
During the cold and grey winter, most of us tend to consume more ‘bad’ food and develop unhealthy eating habits, making our bodies even more stressed and exhausted. We suffer from bloated stomachs, no energy and a touch of the blues.
It’s time to tackle the problem, restore health balance and to get back on track!
First, have a look into your fridge! Almost certainly, you need to change its contents! To start our detox week, you will need to simplify your diet and opt for clean eating. Your body will benefit not only by getting rid of excess water and removing toxins and allergens, cleaning your digestive tract, but also by losing some extra unwanted weight. Additionally, your skin will be brighter and your entire body will blossom and wake up.
Okay! What shall we do first? Remove all food which contains dairy, gluten or processed ingredients. Ideally, we should eliminate all meat and fish as well but it depends on how strong you feel, although its definitely a no to coffee and alcohol!
The key rule will be to drink a great deal of water – don’t be ‘shy’ and consume 8-10 glasses of water per day.
Plan you daily rations in advance, it will help you to exclude overeating and unhealthy pre-packed snack food. For breakfast, go for smoothies. Beneficial ingredients include: kiwis, green apples, pineapple, grapefruits, kale, spinach, celery, cucumbers, fresh parsley, lemons, carrots, beetroots, ginger, flaxseeds. It’s quite a long list of goodies and gives you the chance to use your imagination.
For lunch, try a mix of healthy grains with vegetables (fresh or grilled) or green leaves. Wild or brown rice, buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa, legumes (beans, lentils, peas) are free from gluten and full of vitamins and minerals.
Hooray! Snacking is allowed! Enjoy a variety of nuts, seeds, fresh or dried fruits.
For dinner, go for ‘green’ soups! Prepare your soup using a variety of green vegetables such as celery, broccoli, peas, kale, chard, parsley, leek, pak choi. Add some carrots, butternut squash and potatoes for a creamy texture. Season with healthy oils – olive, avocado, rapeseed, walnut. Sprinkle with pumpkin or linseed seeds and enjoy!
Finally, don’t forget to detox your body from the outside as well. Treat yourself with a deep relaxing massage, go to a sauna or steam room and enjoy home-made coffee scrubs and facial masks.
During you detox days try to allocate some time to listen to your body. How is your body reacting to the changes in your daily routine? Are you less bloated or stressed? Are you more energised? Have a think about it. It might worth trying to build new habits and decrease consumption of food, which trigger negative effects in your body.
Yours in health,
