RECIPES - winter detox


It is this time of year, after the debauchery of the holiday season, which makes our body and mind crave to be cleaner, lighter and less sluggish. This is also the time of year when seasonal fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins, protein, dietary fiber, and of course flavor!

Along with this detox yoga sequence in our other post take the time to pamper yourself! 
* The day before you start, dramatically reduce your intake of caffeine, sugar, wheat, dairy, and alcohol, to lessen the likelihood of headaches and painful withdrawal symptoms during the weekend. 
* Eat light, focusing on raw greens, steamed vegetables, legumes, beans, and raw nuts. 
* Read through the plan outlined on these pages and gather any supplies you don’t have on hand. * Dine on steamed organic veggies, and head to bed early. You’ll need a full eight hours of sleep on Friday night

The most important thing to remember is to enjoy this time, to reward yourself, to go with the flow, with your inner voice. Here is a nice web site, one of our go-to vegan web sites for recipe ideas, which has some very delicious recipes as guidelines for your detox weekend http://ohsheglows.com/2013/12/29/9-delicious-vegan-and-gluten-free-detox-recipes/

Feel free to substitute, add, remove, adjust to your liking and remember to ... enjoy!

Bon appétit
and to a healthy life
