Say ‘No!’ To January Detox!


This may sound surprising coming from me but here it is: if you’re ever advised by anyone to get into a full-on liver detox this time of year: run for your life. Winter is a time for conserving energy and eating nurturing, comforting, warming foods, not for putting your liver into 6th gear by trying to push all those toxins out. This will exhaust and deplete you and that ‘cleaner’ and lighter feeling you expected from your detox may never happen.   Spring is the best time for detoxing, when your liver is ready to expel those nasty toxins you’ve been accumulating all winter. So for now, just try and limit the toxic load by eating and drinking in moderation ..

But I won’t leave you stranded on your toxic island with no lifeline. Here’s a recipe for a bloat-blasting tonic you can have when feeling like your digestive fire’s out:

Ginger Zing: Squeeze ½ cup of lemon juice, add 1 tsp of turmeric powder and soak 10-15 thin slices of fresh ginger in the mixture for half an hour. Chew on a piece of soaked ginger 15 minutes before a meal (watch out for the bite on this one!). Keeps in the fridge in a glass jar for 5 days. If this recipe has too much ‘zing’, simply try adding a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar to a mug of warm water and sip slowly before a meal. Great for these indulgent days when moderation and detox are far from your mind…!

Happy Healthy Year to you all!
