The end of year holidays are over, and most of us have gotten into a rut of eating more than we need or want to eat. Also, January is a time to reset, to make plans for the coming year, and to start fresh. It’s a time to not only reset your mind, but also your body. And how better to do this than with a detox!
It’s October! Fall has officially started, the temperatures have cooled off and I am writing this post from underneath a blanket on the couch, with a cup of hot tea in hand, a candle burning on the table and a dark & chilly evening unfolding outside.
Fasting in various forms has been shown to have a number of health benefits and can not only prevent, but even reverse certain diseases. It gives your body a break, so that it can reset the digestive system and flush out accumulated toxins, leaving you feeling overall lighter and energized. On top of these main benefits, it can help you break unhealthy eating habits and stimulate fat loss.
Hey guys, Today I would like to share 7 of my personal health tips with you! I am really glad I have been healthy this whole winter even though many people around me have been sick with a cold or flu, and I like to think that part of it is due to a few little healthy habits I practice. Now, I am not saying that these habits are ALL proven to be effective or that you have to adopt all of them. I am providing this information as inspiration for you, so try out what you want and feel free to adopt any habits that work for you! 😉
I usually take my overnight oats to work in the morning because I don’t have time to make breakfast before I leave. Whenever I have time in the morning however, I make a green smoothie to give my body an extra boost of nutrients. And my immune system has thanked me so far.
When you hear “oil pulling” for the 1st time, you most likely will not be able to imagine what it is, how it’s done and most of all why! I was similarly clueless when I first heard about it. But stumbling across it several times and having heard experiences from multiple people, I wanted to try it myself.
I’m a true smoothie-lover. Most of the time I make green smoothies because I use every opportunity to incorporate more healthy greens into my diet. But this one particular morning we had some coconut milk, apple sauce and blueberries left over and I ended up with the best smoothie I’ve ever made. I kid you not. I was super impressed, so I had to share the recipe! 🙂
In the last few weeks, I have dramatically reduced my Nicecream consumption. Now that it’s a little bit colder, I am preferring oats for breakfast instead of the cooling Nicecream I ate during the summer.. However, I still like to eat it for dessert. 🙂 This green Nicecream is perfect for the afternoon – it wakes you up and gives you an extra energy boost for the rest of the day!
I recently did a 5 day detox program that I got from Our Clean Journey (it is available in German only for now). Detoxing is supposed to give your liver and kidneys a break and wash out toxins that have built up in the body. There are a lot of different ways to detox, but since I am not a fan of depriving myself of solid food for days, I chose this gentle program. The main idea of the Our Clean Journey detox is to cut out things like flour, animal products, alcohol, coffee, salt, sugar, preservatives and basically all processed food. In those 5 days, you make all your meals from fresh, unprocessed food, so it does take a little bit of time to prepare. To do the detox, I chose a few days when I was at home anyways, so I would be flexible enough to make food whenever I wanted. The plan provides you with 36 recipes for breakfast, lunch/dinner and snacks as well as a little 5 day planner, where you can plan out …
