Healthy New Years Detox?


Clean Diet (Plant-Based Whole Food) Meal Plan

There is no healthy cleanse or detox! Your body will naturally cleanse ad detox your body with healthy foods. Think about the common ground between all detox diets – juicing, water, HEALTHY foods. In detox diets, we do not eat processed foods, added sugars, salts, candy, etc! We eat healthy and clean – and we can also lose weight!

If you are looking for a healthy detox to lose weight after a holiday weight gain – look again. Try to make a change this year – change your lifestyle! “Weight loss” meal plans can be discouraging after a period of time. Simply viewing your eating plan in a more positive way can be a recipe for success! Formulate a healthy diet that has a weight loss side effect! You are eating so healthy, the right amounts of food, at the right times that your body has no choice but to lose weight!

The health benefits of eating clean:

  • More energy! Your body will have in increased amount of energy based on the healthier complex carbohydrate intake coming from whole grains, beans, legumes, fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy foods.
  • Healthy skin. The nutrients in a whole foods plant based diet are so much greater that even your skin will feel the effects! Increased nutrient composition has been shown to decrease wrinkles, decrease acne and make skin look younger! Not to mention the added water intake which can help moisturize the skin.
  • Decreased amount of toxins from your body! Processed foods contain toxins. They are so many preservatives and additives in these foods it would be best to limit them!
  • Health! Every organ in your body will function better – from your hair to your toes (and all in between!) The foods eaten on a clean eating plan are natural, high fiber, nutrient dense foods! We should eat them all the time! J
