January Kick Start

Kick the January blues and go green

 

Kick Start JanuaryAfter Christmas excess who hasn’t swung into a January of abstinence, to fail at the first pop of a cork?  January is the worst time to detox anyway, so ease up on the guilt and go for a green January instead: gently support the liver and pile on the nutritional load in five easy moves.

 

Here’s how:

 

  • Drink three cups of green tea each day:  high antioxidants, lower caffeine, immune boosting and anti-inflammatory.

     

  • Add dried seaweed to vegetable soups or a warming mug of miso – the seaweed looks like spinach when cooked and is seriously high in detoxifying minerals. 

     

  • Have spicy watercress three times a week – in soups, salads and delicious chopped into cooked carrots instead of parsley. High in vitamin C, very liver cleansing

     

  • Whizz up a green smoothie:  lime juice, cucumber, avocado, kiwi fruit, watercress, a good sprig of parsley, Bramley apple juice and coconut juice

     

  • Try a super-greens powder for extra oomph:  ProGreens are exceptional
