Whether you want to clean out your pantry, start going organic or try more drastic measures, here are four simple ways to jump start any detox program to get you feeling refreshed this year.
1. Do a “tea-tox” detox.
From a digestive standpoint, tea-toxes may be one of the most aggressive ways to detox. These teas are designed to really clear you out, when taken as directed, so if you’re unprepared for the laxative effect– steer clear. But if you’re really looking to flush out your system these different teas will probably help. Some of these teas contain energy boosting ingredients like caffeine and or appetite suppressants like Garcinia Cambogia.
2. Try an organic meal delivery service.
A healthy alternative to greasy take-out! The menu of many of these services changes weekly so you won’t get bored. And unlike Blue Apron or Plated, these are true heat-and-eat dishes for busy people who don’t have time to cook. They’re not cheap (individual meals range from about $7 to $28) but it’s probably similar to what you might spend on pricey takeout.
3. Activated charcoal lemonade.
To the uninitiated, drinking a black liquid may seem a little strange. But proponents of activated charcoal swear by its detoxifying properties, including boosting energy, brightening skin –even curing hangovers. Activated charcoal is a substance that absorbs poisons from the GI tract and is typically made from wood, peat, or coconut shells. Mixed with juice, it’s meant to help aid in the elimination of toxins.
4. Make your own green smoothies!
Smoothies are the best and are so easy to make! Fewer sugary fruits like bananas and more green veggies like kale or spinach– is a great way to start. This Green Glamour Smoothie is easy to make and makes a perfect pre workout drink. Or if you’re looking for a super boost of antioxidants, check out this Blueberry Banana Smoothie made with freshly brewed green tea.
