Summer Detox

Summer Detox

We already made it to the first half of the year and summer has officially begun. With us entering a new season, it is also the perfect time to switch up a couple of things in our diet and introduce new healthy recipes that can assist with detoxing our bodies.

How about a 3-day detox? Here are 3 recipes that you can try for 3 days to detoxify your body and start your summer right.

Let’s start with oatmeal with bananas and flax seeds.
Eating a mighty bowl full of nutrients first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day. Oats will provide aid in digestion which is a major key in a detoxified diet. Plus, it can also help reduce blood pressure. With bananas, it is antiviral and antifungal properties can help promote healthy gut flora. And flax seeds? Well, it is an excellent source of fiber and that completes the mighty detox bowl!

During the summer days, it is important to keep our bodies hydrated. Cantaloupe and watermelon are the perfect detoxifying snacks to munch on. Watermelon can help cleanse the body by removing body toxins that are slowing down metabolism. When getting rid of body toxins, it helps boost our metabolism. Cantaloupe also has beneficial nutrients that can help flush toxins from the body just like watermelon. The perfect combination to snack on during our 3-day detox.

Last but not least, a salad is always a great dish to have during the summertime especially when detoxing. An arugula salad makes a perfect detox salad. Arugula is classified as a superfood. It is a great source of folate, vitamins A, C, & K, calcium, magnesium, and more. It is also known for cleansing blood, skin, and liver. With arugula as a base, you can simply add detoxifying toppings to your salad to make it a super salad!
