A great way to start 2012 is with a little detox. I don’t know about you, but I feel a little less than great after the holiday indulgences and for some reason, this past December’s lack of exercise. I found this smoothie recipe on Pinterest and it was filled with great-for-you ingredients and is also considered a “detox smoothie”! So I decided to give it a try.
1 handful of parsley
2 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup kale
Place in blender until smooth. It is a green machine of detox!
There are a bunch of other great smoothie recipes here:
Have you ever done a detox or cleansing diet?
The closest I have come is doing the Unprocessed October Challenge. I have considered getting really serious and eliminating more than just processed foods, but haven’t really found a great place to start or one specific plan that I loved and would be committed to. Mainly because they all seem to involve giving up caffeine…I CANNOT and WILL NOT give up my coffee! That would be just ridiculous 🙂
I have done limited research on the topic but here are two pretty solid plans I found (both of which say no caffeine- hmph 😦 )
Ryan and I have done a semi-modified plan of the totalcyclingperformance.com challenge. BUT, I have a hard time giving up fresh fruit, honey as a sweetener and of course, the coffee part.
Anyone have any thoughts on detoxing? Let me know. I would love to hear your advice.
Are you as addicted to coffee as we are?!
