Gently detox the body with whole plant-based foods and freshly pressed juices.
By Jenny Nicol and Marnie Ashcroft
As the New Year approaches, many of us are inspired to start a healthier routine or diet plan and feel motivated to devote the extra effort into taking better care of ourselves.
Lightening up from the rich food and drink after the holidays is simply good housekeeping for the body. Eat live, fresh, raw food and juices that are easy to digest and nutrient dense. This will allow for the body to clean out excess sugar, fats and waste that may be the cause of stomach bloating, constipation and fatigue.
When it comes to selecting the right detoxification plan for you, it really depends on experience. If you’re new to following a detox protocol, it is best to take it slow, perhaps as slow as a 1-day plan to start. You may decide to eliminate all sugar, caffeine or processed food from the diet for the day; whatever detox plan you choose, over time you learn how the body responds to each plan.
Plant-based meals and juice cleanses give the digestive system a much needed rest by nourishing the cells with easy to absorb nutrients and antioxidants. You can prepare fresh green juices and detoxifying meals at home or order a detox meal plan from a local juicery.
