Day 2 of detox

Posted on: January 31, 2013

Woke up feeling quite hungry, as expected but couldn’t stop now, already starting to feel a bit lighter. So as usual first thing lemon and warn water to cleanse me from the night before and get my metabolism started.  Then yoga and meditation for about 40 minutes and then made my juice for the day. Here’s the recipe:

3 celery sticks

Handful of parsleyLemon

1 pear

2 handfuls of kale

1 inch ginger

½ lemon

1 kiwi

So what do the new ingredients parsley, pear and kiwi do for you?

Parsley: is one herb that is usually just used for garnishing food. It is rich in carotenoids, chlorophyll, calcium, Vitamins A, B, C and iron. Parsley is known for its blood-cleansing and healing properties. It is a strong diuretic, anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant. Parsley neutralizes toxins in your liver, inhibits abnormal cell growth (preventing tumours and cancers), and boosts the immune system.

Kiwis have similar properties to bananas, as well as contain vitamin E which helps improve skin radiance. They also help cleanse and energize our bodies.

Pears are an excellent source of soluble fibre and contain vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, folic acid and niacin. They are also rich in copper, phosphorus and potassium. The high vitamin C and copper content act as good antioxidants that protect cells from damage by free radicals and are critical in building the immune system.

Towards the end of the second day, I started getting the sore gums. Not quite sure why this happens but it always does. Guess it’s the body’s way of letting you know it’s awake and responding to the detox!

Peace and Fabulous Health!
