It’s the new year and most of us are thinking about those resolutions. I’m not too big on resolutions but one thing I want to do is take care of my body better. It’s time to flush all the toxins out and give myself a fresh start for the new year. I think of it as changing the oil in my body to make it run better. Almost like you do for your car. I’m working with a nutrition coach on she is the one that gave me this recipe concoction. I’ve gotta tell you. It sucked the first day. I was able to drink it but I wasn’t used to the taste at all. By the time I got to the second day it really wasn’t all that bad. The third day I think I may have craved it. I wanted a cleanse that would boost my energy levels and help with cravings. My husband is doing this cleanse with me because of all the alcohol he drank over the holidays. We have both noticed a big difference in how we feel!
This liver cleanse cocktail consists of only a few ingredients:
- 4 oz – Pure Unsweetened Cranberry Juice (not the kind that’s loaded with sugar that are found at your local grocery store but rather these brands found on Amazon or at your local health food store)
- 1/2 Fresh squeezed Lemon
- 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar ( Bragg Organic is the BEST!)
- 4 oz Water
- B-12 Drops (25 drops)
Combine all the above ingredients and mix well. Drink up!
I have learned that the liver is one of the most important organs in our body. It filters out all the toxins and waste from the blood. It’s aids in digestion by manufacturing proteins, metabolizing fat, storing nutrients and carbohydrates.
This concoction will help rid the liver of harmful substances by keeping the body’s pH levels from becoming too acidic, a condition that can make a person vulnerable to weight resistance and disease.
The B-12Drops are the secret ingredient that give you a serious energy boost! You should also be able to find these at your local health food store or there are plenty of good ones here on Amazon too.
Did you know? Your liver metabolizes 80% of your body’s fat. It purifies 4 pints of blood per minute. And it produces bile to help metabolize fat. This is why it’s extremely important to cleanse the liver.
Feel free to do this routine for a full 21 days! My nutritionist tells me she does this daily all the time. I might just continue it after the 21 days because of how good I feel.
Another tip she gave me along with eating sensibly is to snack sensibly too. She introduced me to the ThinkThin bars. I’ve never been into bars of any kind because of the sugar but these have no sugar with high protein and they actually taste good. They are considered a Lo Gi food and Gluten free product! My favorite is the Peanut Butter Thinkthin bar. YUM!!!
I plan to add the Top 5 Super Foods to my lifestyle change too. This will be fairly simple to do.
What are you doing different to start off the new year right? Do you have any goals? New Years Resolutions?
