Things happen…

Even during a week when you planned ahead and succeeded in following all your healthy habits…sometimes we slip a little. Whether you enjoyed a happy hour last night or feel dragged down from the picturesque cake you had at your best friend’s birthday party, you just need to flush all those unwanted toxins out of your body.

Your detox diet cannot come quickly enough!


However, you don’t even need to wait for our twice-a-year Detox Week Diets!

Here are some tips to help you flush excess fluid and waste out of your system, and get ready for your next detox week in advance. Sounds like a win-win!

1 Lemons

Start your day with a glass of warm lemon water. Lemon is a natural diuretic, and can help with digestion and to prevent bloating. Lemons are also high in vitamin C, so they help strengthen your body’s immune system.

2 Parsley

Parsley is one of the best natural diuretics. It increases the flow of water through the kidneys, flushing out germs or bacteria. You can add some parsley in a green smoothie or add it into your salads.

3 Garlic

This natural antibiotic helps protect the liver from environmental toxins, fights infections and inflammation. Add garlic to any food whenever possible, and if the smell is too much for you, slightly cook the garlic or add it last minute to a stir-fry.

4 Ginger

Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory, it supports the liver, helps detoxify the lymphatic system and aids in digestion. You can add ginger in all your meals – from soups to desserts. Tip: keep ginger frozen and just slice or grind when needed.

5 Green Tea

Green tea helps to give you a great dose of antioxidants and hydration. It cleans out your liver, fights cancer, and alleviates irritable bowel disease. Sip high quality green tea during your day. Ideally, choose to brew the tea instead of using tea bags.

6 Beets

The antioxidants and naturally-occurring nitrates in beets help blood flow smoothly throughout the body and gives you more oxygen, more nutrients, and more energy!

Beets taste sweet, but a cup of cooked beets contains only 60 calories and is full of fiber. This is a perfect food for weight management!

Beets are even called Nature’s Viagra according to: (http://www.care2.com/greenliving/8-beet-benefits-aphrodisiac-brain-booster-more.html#ixzz43its7MUM).

One of the first known uses of beets was by the ancient Romans, who used them medicinally as an aphrodisiac. Many plants have been considered an aphrodisiac by different cultures at different times, but in this case it may be more than just wishful thinking.

As noted above, beets can increase blood flow due to their nitrates. Increased blood flow to the genital areas is one of the mechanisms Viagra and other pharmaceuticals create their effects.  Beets also contain high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.

So there you have it! Try these tips and enjoy!
