Spring Cleaning…YOUR Diet!

March 12, 2014
Hello blue skies, sunshine, beautiful flowers and pastels…
Spring into SPRING!
We are just ONE WEEK away from SPRING!!!!

The seasonal change from winter to spring is about more than just breaking out our favorite flip-flops, shorts and spending more time outdoors. It’s also about changing up the foods we eat! 

Your body is constantly trying to neutralize and eliminate toxins through the major organs such as your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph system and skin…But what if your self-cleaning system is overloaded and blocked up?

Instead of feeling rejuvenated for the spring we feel lethargic and still reaching for our loose/comfy sweats…Take a moment and ask yourself:

 Is YOUR Body Craving A Detox? 


  • Do you feel bloated and congested?
  • Have you gained unwanted pounds even though you are not eating more food?
  • Do you feel tired and low in energy? (signs of an acidic diet)
  • Has your digestion worsened? (a sign your body isn’t absorbing its nutrients well)
  • Is your hair and skin looking not as healthy as it used to?
  • Do you frequently get mouth sores, yeast infections, urinary tract infections, unusual allergies?
  • Do you feel foggy and out of sorts?
  • Do you feel like you need to clear the cobwebs from your brain?

If you answered yes to three or more of the above, then it’s time to hit the “reset “button!

Research shows that DETOXING may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes chronic fatigue syndrome and candida.

The good news is fresh fruits and vegetables contain powerful healing agents! They nourish your body and help maximize its normal functions. By choosing to eat whole, healthy foods you can change the way you look and kick-off the spring feeling energetic, vibrant and ready to ditch the sweats in exchange for those short-shorts!

Why Detox? 

In this day and age, we’re exposed to a number of environmental pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. In particular, our modern diet tends to be loaded with things that inhibit our natural detox system from functioning at its best, such as chemicals in processed foods, large amounts of animal protein, saturated and trans fats, caffeine, sugar, and alcohol.Detoxing through the diet is a great way to nourish and support your natural self-cleaning system. Besides just helping your body get rid of toxins, reassessing the foods you are eating and detoxing can also help you:

  • Flood your body with nutrients
  • Drop a few pounds
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Curb your sugar cravings
  • Increase your energy and productivity by clarifying your mind
  • Bolster your immune system
  • Kick-start a new healthy eating plan!

Consuming delicious fruits, vegetables, and healthy proteins will rid the body of toxins, cleanse organs, and fend off the damaging effects of food additives.

5 of spring’s BEST cleansing/detoxifying fruits and veggies you should incorporate into your diet: 
 


1. Avocado – Packed with fiber and vitamins, avocado aids in detoxification by helping the liver purify any synthetic chemicals in our bodies.
2. Asparagus – Containing foliate and zinc, this spring vegetable provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that make it one of the best natural artery-cleansing foods.
3. Cherries – This super fruit is a nutritional powerhouse that’s rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, and help rid the body of free radicals. Ideal for cleansing the body, this tart and sweet fruit makes for a great alternative, healthy dessert!
4. Fennel – This green veggie is a natural diuretic that helps remove toxic substances from the body. It also contains heart-friendly potassium to help reduce blood pressure.
5. Peas – High in protein and fiber, peas promote colon health and strengthen blood vessels.
