Today is the second day of my whole food spring cleanse! Of course my go-getter, all-in clients out did me and started theirs last Saturday! Awesome – love their enthusiasm!! Who knew breakfast could be so creamy but delicious, healthy and satisfying!
When you are eating healthy for your individual body you feel better, think better, move better and your body runs better! Doing a cleanse also helps you see what foods are not truly serving your body besides giving it a rest. Sometimes eliminating foods seems like a daunting task.
However, being without sugar for a week can truly be a game changer in managing your future cravings (that is if there are any after!).
Even if you are not eating donuts, foods like pasta is ultimately turn into sugar in your body. You will also see that coffee doesn’t have a hold on you like you thought! It truly can be a vicious cycle that you may not even be aware that you are on.
Same goes for alcohol/beer/wine – it can truly mess up not only how you feel the next day but your food choices aren’t usually the best. Alcohol is diuretic depleting you of nutrients and making your body work that much harder. Making healthier choices and/or cleansing does not mean you need to deprive yourself from delicious food nor do you need a toilet near by. A natural cleansing diet helps to relieve the burden on the body’s detoxification systems and by allowing the body’s natural mechanisms to work more efficiently on clearing accumulated toxins. Natural food such as cilantro, parsley, dandelion, celery, asparagus, artichokes, carrots, daikon radish, just to name a few, are all very powerful cleansing herbs and vegetables.
Your liver naturally cleanses after winter stagnation and does a “spring cleaning” but with so environmental toxins we are faced in our homes, workplace and in our food supply it’s a good practice to give your body a break at least two times a year. . every single day to help rid your body of toxins. We live in a world of keeping you “tuned up” so to speak cleansing will lift that burden especially after winter when our bodies become stagnated and clogged and may cause all kinds of symptoms such as:
- achy joints
- extra weight gain
- unfocused and blah
Once you clean out the old and put in nourishing nutrition you can function better, it also mentally lifts your spirits. Add in additional mindset work and you have a match made in heaven. You continue the momentum because your mindset has shifted to your “new being” and while you are not on a permanent cleanse you are mindful of your choices. You respect yourself so the food going into your body is serving you not sabatoging you. You plan ahead and mostly have your own back int the process. You are ready to continue the healthy lifestyle.
