Have the winter woes left you feeling far from vibrant? Are you feeling the urge to slim down, shape up or simply kick start some new habits? Now is the time my friends. As we enter longer days and warmer temperatures, it’s a prime opportunity to not only spring clean your closet, but also your body.
My suggestion is to start where you are today, pump up the water and include at least one of the foods listed daily. Oh yes, a change is gonna come!
My top 5 foods for daily cleansing & weight management
1) Organic green leafy vegetables: Kale, collards, arugula, spinach, bok choy and broccoli
□ Jam packed with chlorophyll which helps to rid the body of toxins and supports the liver.
□ Powerful liver and gallbladder cleanser.
□ Activates liver enzymes that help the body in filtering out any toxins you don’t want lingering.
4) Citrus – lemon, limes, oranges & grapefruit
□ Rich source of vitamin C – the ultimate cleansing vitamin.
5) Green Tea
□ Antioxidant rich tea – loaded with catechins which is thought to play a pivotal role in the green tea’s anticancer and antioxidant effects; plus improves liver function and promotes fat loss.
Metabolic Booster Tea: ½ fresh lemon juice + 1 inch peeled and chopped ginger + pinch of cayenne pepper + 8 cups of green tea (serve hot or cold)
Hibernation is officially over,
