Eating to Detoxify?!
It is commonly accepted that adding something new is easier than cutting something out, so I thought I'd share an article that I read today showcasing five foods which will help cleanse your body from the inside out, in hopes that you'll implement one (or all!) of them to your personal menu: parsley and coriander, water, leafy greens, lemon water, and avocado.
I'm always open to easy ways to improve. For example, I've made a habit of drinking a glass of water first thing every morning, instead of coffee and before my tea. Effortless yet beneficial; I really feel a difference!
Try adding one of the five ingredients above to your routine sometime this week. Start easy by adding a vegetable or a glass of water. When that's become part of your weekly routine, shoot for every day. Then, when you've been doing that for a week or two, reflect. See if you don't feel a difference. (I bet you will!)
Once you're comfortable with your new additions, try subtracting something from your routine that may not be in your best interest. Start with cutting out that can of soda or handful of chips you would usually reach for. Baby steps! Next thing you know, it'll be part of your lifestyle, and, really, that's what it's all about.
