WIAW: Detox the Natural Way
Happy Wednesday! Today I am going to share what I eat in a day when I feel like I need a little nutritional reset/ over indulged a bit or just have not been feeling my best energetic self. While nearly all of my meals are usually healthy, sometimes certain foods I eat just don’t make me feel my best. After I got back from Nashville I knew that I needed a little bit of a detox. And no- by detox I don’t mean only drinking some weird lemon-cayenne pepper beverage for 3 days straight. For me “detoxing” means eating lots of raw foods, foods with lots of fiber, and lots of veggies!
For breakfast I had lots of fresh fruit! This was a pretty big bowl filled with watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, a peach, and some cherries. I love having a big variety of fruits in the morning.
I went rollerblading a few hours after breakfast and when I finished i refueled with this tropical smoothie! It was just a tropical blend of frozen fruit, and some almond milk. It didn’t even all fit in this glass! I enjoyed this smoothie outside. I love sitting outside while I drink my smoothies because I always get so cold!
For dinner I had a giant “detox salad”. I only call it that since Whole Foods makes a similar salad that they always have at their salad bar which they call a “detox salad”. I made this by blitzing up lots of veggies in my food processor to get them to have a chopped/ shaved texture. It had cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, carrots, raisins, cucumber, and a few chopped almonds on top. I also made a healthy, oil free dressing with lime & other spices to drizzle on top.
I feel like I also ate something else for a snack but I just can’t remember / didn’t take a photo of it (oops). But, Im sure I did.
What have you been eating lately? What kinds of foods do you eat when you need a little detox/ nutritional reset? let me know in the comments!
