One of the best way to cleanse is to detox yourself by following these simple steps.
When you wake up: Drink warm lemonade. Mix 8 ounces warm (not hot!) water with half a lemon (freshly squeezed) to hydrate your body and stimulate digestion.
Meditation: Set yourself up for success and quiet your mind with a 10-minute meditation. To settle yourself before you begin, take 10 deep cleansing breaths.
Breakfast: Start your day by flooding your body with antioxidants, thanks to freshly made green juice from your Go Organic ME Green Box. So many delicious ways to go about this, but go easy on the fruit. A simple rule of thumb is to use three servings of vegetables for every piece of fruit. My favorite combo is the following:
- A handful of swiss chard
- A cucumber
- Half avocado
- 1 inch freshly peeled ginger
Add filtered water or coconut water then blend for 30 seconds.
Mid-morning: Enjoy a cup of Tulsi tea and a handful of raw, unsalted almonds. This will calm any cravings and the matcha tea will give you a calm alertness for the rest of the day.
Lunch: Avoid the afternoon slump by eating a light lunch. Try a cucumber salad with a cup of carrot ginger soup. Add as many different colors as you can to your salad including a healthy fat, like avocado. Avoid store-bought dressings as they’re often filled with preservatives and hidden sugars. Dress your salad with Go Organic ME ghee and the other half of your lemon from the morning.
Exercise: Go for a light 20-minute walk outside after lunch
Mid-afternoon snack: If you’re hungry, eat a half cup of raw koosa with 8 ounces filtered water. If possible, take a 20-minute nap!
Unwind: To aid your body in releasing toxins, unwind with a massage or an infrared sauna treatment. This will provide relief for sore joints and muscles while also helping you to relax.
Dinner: Keep it simple while focusing on whole foods. Try cruciferous vegetables as they are great for liver detoxification.
Nightcap: Drink a cup of Tulsi Tea. Filled with antioxidants, it reportedly helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol while also supporting your digestive system.
Gratitude: Write down three things for which you are most grateful today in a journal or scrap of paper. The practice of writing versus thinking has a way of activating the pleasure centers in our brain. Go the extra mile, and add in another 20-minute meditation before drifting off to a restorative sleep.
Notice how your body feels after just one day of avoiding common food triggers like gluten, corn, dairy, caffeine, and sugar. I hope you’ll feel fantastic!
