While Easter celebrations were slightly dampened this year due to the devastating outbreak of the coronavirus, nothing could postpone the annual sugar binge that took place in households Australia-wide. Whether your weapon of choice was a Lindt chocolate bunny, classic Cadbury egg or a few too many cheeky wines, there is no doubt that you may be feeling a little worse for wear from the big weekend of celebration, even if it was just in your living room.
The weekend is over and so should be the sluggish, heavy feeling you may have left behind. Jump back into good health with these 5 foods to help naturally detox your body:
Broccoli is the perfect addition to your post-Easter diet to help speed up the natural detoxification of your body. Broccoli has many antioxidant properties to help protect your body and get rid of any toxins in your system! It also contains phytonutrients to help stimulate the body's natural detoxification process.
Known for its rich colour, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, beetroot is great to add into your diet to assist the natural detox of your body. These deep purple gems are packed with magnesium, iron and vitamin C making them the perfect, detox-boosting food.
Limes are an excellent addition to your diet if you are looking to cleanse your body. This is largely thanks to their high traces of vitamin C which have been proven to help the body detox naturally. Additionally, limes have the ability to help restore the body’s pH balance and improve immune system functioning due to their alkaline effect.
If you’ve found your stomach is a little sensitive after overdoing it on the booze and junk food over the weekend, try incorporating some ginger into your diet. Ginger contains a large number of antioxidants which can aid in digestion and help settle your stomach by reducing bloating and gas.
Rich in essential fatty acids, avocados can assist the body by preventing the absorption of unhealthy fats. These little green bombs of nutrients can also help lower cholesterol and help the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals.
