Spring is the best time to do a detox. Always start very slowly and gently when cleansing. If it is done too quickly your body could become overloaded with stored toxins, making you feel very ill.
First steps include drinking 6 - 8 glasses of water each day to ensure proper hydration, and eating 6 cups of vegetables per day.
A great way to get a whole bunch of veggies in, is to make fresh vegetable juices. Fresh juice is easily absorbed and assimilated in the body, providing you with calories, nutrients and the inherent enzymes contained in each fruit or vegetable, as well as giving your digestive system a bit of a rest.
Check out the book "Crazy Sexy Juice" by Kris Carr for some great recipes.
This morning I made a delicious juice from:
2 medium sized beets
4 stalks of celery
2 mini cucumbers
5 leaves of kale
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
1/2 inch piece of turmeric peeled
Clean and prep veggies and fruit. Prepare in juicer.
