Healthy Eating with Detox Recipes for your Body

You probably know by now what detoxification is and the ways that it can be done. A detox diet provides the simplest way to detoxifying yourself. A rule of thumb in detox diets: the more fiber and water, the better. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits, beans and nuts. On the other hand, steer clear of caffeine, carbonated drinks, sugars like chocolates, alcohol and yeast.

Dr. Kiki Sidhwa recommends going on a monotrophic diet after a three-day fast. By monotrophic, we mean eating only one type of fruit for every meal. Example, for breakfast, you can eat apple. For lunch, try out oranges or pineapples. Eat until your hunger is satisfied. You can squeeze in a grapefruit juice at around 4 pm for your snack. And in the evening, eat only apples, pears, grapes or bananas.

Of course, this is just one of those do-it-yourself diet plans that you can take on when you’re on a detox program. For most people, however, detox recipes are the best way to go. These detox recipes are especially designed to provide you with the necessary nutrient in the body and at the same time, providing you with the necessary antioxidants and substances that will cleanse your body from toxins.
For more fluid intake, you can try Ginger Healing Tea with Turmeric. What you need are the following: 2 cups of water, ½ teaspoon of powdered ginger, ½ teaspoon of tumeric, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and lemon extract. To make your special healing tea, add powdered herbs to boiling water and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the tea into a mug and add maple syrup and lemon extract.

Our dinner treat is Warm Broccoli Soup.

A Detoxifying Cleanse Can Boost Your Energy

Have your energy levels dropped for no apparent reason? When your body isn’t being nurtured properly it can shut down. This shut down isn’t an immediate cessation of function but individual systems begin to slow down to conserve energy. Your metabolism slows, glandular functions are hampered and the body itself will start to lose power and strength. The first thing you may notice is that you experience fatigue all the time and just can’t seem to get it together. Before you reach for another cup of coffee or other energy boosting concoction consider a detoxifying cleanse.

Think of your body as a car engine. What would happen if you never changed the oil in your car? As you can imagine, engine performance would slowly decline and you’d have to push harder on the gas to get up to speed. Have you ever tried to get onto the highway in a car with poorly performing engine? Instead of going 0 to 60 in 5 seconds, it takes 10. Your body is the same way, our bodies can become sluggish if waste, poisons, toxins, chemicals, and other harmful substances are not periodically flushed out with a detoxifying cleanse.
