Detoxifying Foods to Add to your Diet

No need for crazy juice cleanse, or anything like that.  This is not a Detox Diet.  I’m talking about foods that you should work into your diet daily!  The founder of California organic food and juice company Urban Remedy and author of Urban Remedy: The 4-Day Home Cleanse Retreat says there are plenty of naturally detoxifying foods you can easily add to your plate. “These should be staples of your diet, not foods you take time off from processed ones to eat,” she says.  A diet full of nutritious detoxifying foods will help you eat clean! Detoxifying foods support your liver with react to fat-soluble toxins, and help excrete those toxins from the body.  Nutrients like vitamin C, beta carotene, and fiber are all essential for getting those processes to work correctly.

Advocare Chocolate Peanut Butter Meal Replacement

I’m sorry.. did you say Reese’s for breakfast?!  Heck yes! I know that I talked about using Advocare Meal Replacements in one of my previous posts about adding protein.  But I gotta tell you about the new flavor– Chocolate Peanut Butter.  They just released the new flavor a week ago, and it might not be around long. Nutritional Facts: 220 calories Balanced meal for optimal nutrition and weight management 24 grams of easy-to-digest protein 50% of the Daily Value of calcium 26 vitamins and minerals I like it blended with a banana and ice cubes or if I’m on the run, I can always shake it up with cold almond milk.  I always have one in my purse and in my desk as work that I can have with mixed with water for an emergency snack.  I have always like the chocolate, but this new flavor is super yummy! I’m thinking about making Protein Brownies with them or something… be on the look out for that recipe! Get some!
