Spring time is a great time to begin cleansing your body of all those winter toxins. Remember all the comfort food you ate during the cold days to stay warm? Time to cleanse your body of it and prepare it for fresh ingredients and beach time. I will be sharing some of my favorite juices that I have done and some recipes I have found along the way that can help us all reveal that beach body to the world….
Today I am loving a little something green.
A bunch of celery along with a few leaves of kale and parsley will do the tick. Now sweeten it up with some green apple. To give it that extra zinger of flavor you can use 1 lime, 1 lemon, and a little bit of ginger. If you prefer it on the less sour side, just use either lime OR lemon, not both…flavor preference is up to you. Cilantro is also a great ingredient to add to any green juice.
With Passover quickly approaching; I know I will be surrounded by family, food, and more food. When it comes to such a rich holiday where the eating is hard core everyday, I like to enter the holiday a few pounds lighter.
My solution is a 7-day cabbage soup diet. This diet helps cut calories, bad sugar, and starches. This is one of the lighter diets that is recommended to try to kick start your metabolism into a healthier cycle. The best part about cabbage soup is that you can eat as much of it as you want, whenever you want (even at night) and you will not gain extra pounds. I personally do not like to be kept hungry while dieting; I simply cannot starve myself while running around all day and interacting with my clients so this is my ideal solution.
I will be keeping this diet for 7 days and then responsibly indulging in the goodness Passover has to offer. Keeping a balanced diet after the holiday is key to keeping the weight off. There are many recipes that you can search for but one in particular that I like comes from Divas Can Cook and features a soup that is loaded with tons of veggies.
Try out the diet and let me know your results! I’ll keep everyone posted on my progress from diet to holiday and back again 🙂
After my vacation, I gained some extra pounds thanks to all the relaxing, lounging around, eating all the delicious food that Israel has to offer, and just enjoying the environment. I have a plan for the week to get me back in shape and back to a healthier routine. This first week is critical and I wanted to share what I plan on doing and maybe get some support from everyone 🙂
Wednesday & Thursday: Juice cleanse
Friday: Juice cleanse & Back to the gym
Fingers crossed that I last all week! I am also sharing below the juice cleanse I will be doing: http://www.jusbyjulie.com/the-jus-cleanse.html This juice cleanse is amazing for the simple reason that it is like a restart button for the body. It rids the body of toxins, which takes away bloating and discomfort. All of the juices are filled with nutrients that give the body what it needs while taking away cravings during the day and helping with weight loss. I won’t need to stop my hectic day at all while on this cleanse; which is why I love it even more 🙂
Another weekend, another juice recipe to share! This particular juice is not one of the most pleasant to drink especially if you don’t have a taste for salt but it sure is amazing as a cleanse for the weekend! Raw tomatoes have been known to help the body detox especially the lungs. They are also amazing in the prevention of skin, breast, and lung cancer.
Tomato salt cleanse consists of raw tomatoes and some Celtic sea salt in a blender! Drink up and feel instantly better!
