With the sluggish after-holiday haze setting in and New Year resolutions fading into the background, it’s the perfect time for a body cleanse from within!
We know cleansing diets can end up being “just a phase” that you stray from but there are sensible ways to make a long lasting impact. We’ve got you covered with the most effective way to cleanse: focusing on whole, unprocessed foods that nurture your body’s wellness and lightens the toxic load! Choose to let your health thrive with these recommended dietary additions.
Fiber in apples help you stay full and stimulates bile production, which in turn helps your liver get rid of toxins. We recommend having apples as part of your meals rather than munch on them all day as the acidic content can cause teeth damage!
Tip: Apples have been linked to a lower risk of diabetes. Time to munch up!
Vitamin C in lemons (and other citrus fruits) convert toxins into water-soluble forms that are easily eliminated and stimulates the body to release enzymes that help with digestion. You’d be happy to know that these yellow sours are great at preventing heart diseases and promoting weight loss!
Tip: Have a glass of lemon water in the morning to enhance the effects of hydration.
Nuts and Seeds
Tip: You can also meet your everyday nutty quota with two tablespoons of organic peanut butter!
Carrots are powerful additions to your diet. High concentrations of Vitamin A helps reduce fat in the liver and flush out harmful substances from your body. The fiber content also helps clean out the colon!
Tip: Struggling with poor eyesight? Carrots are the fool-proof traditional remedy to improving your vision!
Show extra care to your liver with healthy doses of beetroot in your meals. Betaine found in beetroot regenerates liver cells that defend you against the toxins you’re exposed to on the daily.
Tip: When choosing your first beetroots, remember this: good quality, fresh beetroots should have their greens intact.
Cucumbers rarely get the attention they deserve. Boasting a perfect blend of water and fiber, cucumbers have amazing cleaning properties. They remove waste from your body and protect you from constipation and kidney stones.
Tip: Daily consumption of cucumbers can be regarded as a remedy for chronic constipation!
Fats and Oils
These are terms you’d typically stay away from when adopting a healthier lifestyle but many do not realise the benefits of natural fats and oils. Tossing a salad with natural oils like Extra Virgin Olive Oil or organic Coconut Oil provides your body the energy it needs for bio-transformation processes.
Tip: Fat isn’t forbidden, as long as it’s the good kind! Find healthy fats in nuts, olives and olive oil.
Consuming foods that support the cleansing process in your body allows it to naturally flush out foreign chemicals. Supply your liver with the right nutrients and watch your body renew!
