I over indulged on Thanksgiving Day but who didn’t? A few days later, and I am still stuffed.
The day after Thanksgiving, I did not want any food in my sight. Especially, meat, rice and potato salad. I was so over it!
If you are feeling like a stuffed turkey, or just a bit bloated, this detox is what you need. After doing this detox, I had the urge to eat food again but in moderation.
As much as I was happy to celebrate Thanksgiving, I am kind of thankful it’s over. Now I can return to my normal routine. Hey! make sure you continue reading to find out more on the best way to detox.
1. Ginger Tea
First thing in the morning, I start with a glass of ginger tea. Ginger tea helps me to fully digest all the healthy and crappy foods that I ate. The best way to add ginger to your detox routine, chop the ginger into small pieces. Then mash the ginger with a spoon and drop it in boiling water and wait for 5 minutes. Pour the ginger tea in a cup and squeeze a half of lemon. Let the ginger tea cool for two minutes before drinking.
These are my favorite ingredients to create a detox smoothie; kale, mango, pineapple, ginger, lemon and water. I had the smoothie for breakfast and lunch and a meat-less salad for dinner.
This smoothie recipe is great to drink after Thanksgiving and whenever I feel like I have over indulged. It’s easy for me to get back on track after doing this detox regimen, just in one day.
Around 5pm I had a salad for dinner. I had 3 cups of arugula, 1 avocado, 4 cherry tomatoes, 1 cucumber with light balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
4. No Candy, Soda & Chocolate
Okay I know this is crazy! No candy, soda and chocolate. It’s only for one day! The point of detox is to get rid of sugar, unhealthy cravings and consume greens.
I have so many things to be thankful for! I am so happy I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my family!❤️
