Post-festivity healthy detox

Posted on 3 min read

After the big feast at Christmas, a detox treatment cleanses our body. However, detoxes do not have to be expensive or complicated. I’ll show you how to get back into shape with simple tips and tricks and how to get rid of those few pounds too many. For if you detox regularly, you will support your immune system and stay fit.

Drinking

Water flushes all toxins out of the body. Therefore, it is important to drink enough of it — especially after the holidays. It helps to use a large carafe and set a target for when it should be empty. If you travel a lot, you can do the same with a glass water bottle. If you find it difficult to drink a lot of water in winter, tea also works (provided it’s unsweetened)! A simple vegetable broth is also very good.

Movement

Movement is at least as important as water. Even a long walk will stimulate our metabolism. This means that toxins are quickly transported out of the blood. So give yourself a push: go out and get some fresh air!

Food

There are different types of detoxification. With all forms of detox it is important to eat enough fresh food — especially organic fruits and vegetables. All the better if they are also locally grown. Meat and other animal fats should be avoided, as should everything containing artificial colours and preservatives. Even sugar is taboo! If you would like to fast properly, you can also do a juice cleanse for a few days or just enjoy a morning without breakfast and eat at noon.

My Detox Recipe

The idea behind detoxing is to flush the remains of unhealthy food, overconsumption of alcohol and nicotine out of the body. All this leaves traces in our body. Chemicals that we absorb through the air and water also accumulate in us. As a result, both substances and fat bind together in the body. With a detox, these substances can be removed again.

Many companies have developed special powders and food supplements for this specific purpose, but all this is actually complete nonsense. The whole thing can be done far more simply, more naturally and with only a few ingredients. Here’s how you can really get your body going again with a green smoothie. Here’s what you need:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 handful of baby spinach
  • 2 thin slices of ginger
  • juice and peel of 1/2 a lemon
  • a dash of vanilla
  • a splash of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground psyllium husks

All ingredients are now put into the blender and mixed on the highest setting. The secret to a creamy smoothie is to use one third of the ingredients in frozen form. This also helps a lot if you want to make a smoothie bowl. The thicker consistency means that your toppings won’t sink! Also important: chew your smoothie! Sounds odd? Well, a smoothie has much more to offer than just water. In order for your body to be able to absorb all the nutrients well, you need to salivate.

Now I wish you a lot of fun with purification and smoothie eating. All my love, Anina
