New Year Detox - the time for change

First of all; Happy New Year! Second; Thinking about new years resolutions? Thought so. This is that one time of year when more or less everyone is thinking about change. Maybe you have promised yourself to call old friends or relatives more often, maybe you have decided to exercise three times a week, or maybe you are thinking that this year is definitely the year when "I am gone go for the dream career and stop wasting time at this job that only makes me miserable". Big changes or not, it's crucial to feel good about yourself to make them come true and that my friend always starts from the inside. 

I am going to give you some tips on how to quickly recharge your body from the inside to put a smile on the outside. You will see instant results and I am suggesting that you keep going with this for as long as possible unless telling otherwise; 

LIVER FLUSH - after a boozy holiday the liver needs a breather and a cleanse. Take 1 tablespoon of olive oil 30min before breakfast (for 3days only).

DANDELION TEA - an excess of food often means extra unnecessary fluid in your body. Drink 3 cups of dandelion tea a day to get rid of the fluid. Keep going for 2 weeks, have a 1-2 weeks break, and continue with the tea for an addition of 2 weeks if preferred. 

CELERY STALKS - you don't want to walk around with sluggish leftovers lying around in your body. Celery help you get rid of "garbage" through the intestines. Aim to eat at least 4 stalks a day for a week to start and make it a daily routine to eat at least 2 stalks each day. If you are making your own fresh juices, celery is a perfect ingredient. 

SPIRULINA - vitamins and minerals are crucial for the body to work at its best. You need them for example to break down the food you eat, for the brain to work properly, and for your psychological state of mind. Spirulina is an algae that is completely natural and that contains a wide spectrum of micro nutrients and even protein. Take it as a tablet rather then powder and follow instructions on the jar. 

and last but not least...

EAT - breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. In other words; don't eat your biggest meal at night and try not to eat at all after 8pm.
