Holiday eating; detox begins now

See also

As the holiday eating ceases, the delightful cakes, cookies and other scrumptious snacking begins to take a toll on your figure knowing it is time to detox. The best method is to begin with a liquid diet comprised of fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies. Drinking plenty of lemon water and taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar cuts the urge of cravings for starches and sweets. Getting back to healthy eating is a jump-start to the warm season just around the corner.

Blending the fruits and vegetables, such as spinach, kale, berries, and bananas, allows the consumption of the anti-oxidants and vitamins, which are not plentiful when they are cooked. Fruits such as bananas, blueberries, and strawberries that even kids will find the smoothies delicious mask the taste of green vegetables. Keep in mind detoxification of the body decreases the conditions and illnesses such as hypertension and elevated levels of cholesterol and sugar that leads to major diseases.

If not too keen on fruit and vegetable smoothies, other foods such as broccoli, grapefruit, lentils, oatmeal, and sunflower seeds also cleanse the body. Frequently cleansing the body after binge eating prevents inflammations that have destructive capabilities. Unhealthy snacking sometimes feels great but knowing when to stop contributes to a healthier lifestyle.

So, in preparation for shedding the long coats and sweaters, get ready to detox. Motivate the mind and soul to a healthier you. Remember health eating promotes longevity and lessens the bad effects of common diseases and illnesses. Suffering through bad health places a burden on love ones. Being mindful of nutritional eating makes life easier while promoting healing of the inner along with the outer you. Happy detox!
