48-Hour Weekend Cleanses: An Easy Way To Detoxify
Baked Sweet Potato
Not just for the Thanksgiving table, sweet potatoes offer vitamins and nutrients needed to maintain a healthy physique. They satisfy you without those empty carbs and starches. Pop one in the microwave and have it for lunch. You won’t be hungry for awhile.
Skip the Salt
It’s no secret that salt makes you bloated. Most people consume more sodium than they need. Cutting out salts isn’t as difficult as you might think. If you’re looking for something with a little bit of bite, try cucumber or celery. Table salt contains iodine that is essential to our overall health, so don’t cut it out completely.
Like salt, sugar is heavily consumed. Substitute gummy bears with strawberries. You don’t need that apple pie after dinner. Try a smoothie for a refreshing twist on dessert. Smoothies are a phenomenal way to include your daily fruit intake in just one glass. Here are some delicious smoothies to try!
Drinking tea as a method of cleansing has been around for centuries. Whether it’s iced tea or boiling hot mint tea, your body will be nourished and rejuvenated. And remember to use honey instead of sugar. Check out this recipe using cranberry, apple, and lemon juice.
Spicy Green Tea
Water is vital to proper kidney function. Drinking plenty of water ensures the toxins trapped in our bodies are removed. Weekend cleansing is all about balancing out your body and nourishing organs. Nourish every organ with 9 cups of water a day!
