This week of detox may sound challenging, but it is actually very simple. Just make a green smoothie every day, and include some greens with each meal. I walk around my house munching on raw greens so often, my friends call me the “Baby Gorilla” haha.
I also keep sugar snap peas in my fridge for late night cravings (try it, it works great!). Adding ginger to your smoothies is also an excellent way to support daily activity, as it is well-known for its anti inflammatory benefits.
I make a cup of hot water with fresh ginger and a quarter of a lemon (immune booster) and drink it in the evening or morning daily. For extra internal cleansing, you can also add a Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to your ginger/lemon tea. Scientific studies indicate that apple cider vinegar helps lower blood glucose, and also promotes a feeling of fullness. It also contains many good minerals, and has antioxidant properties as well.
I will post my daily workouts on my Facebook page, be sure to like it so you can get some daily inspiration!
