How to Cleanse Your Body Naturally with Delicious + Green Food


I'm always on the run. And sometimes days feel never-ending. Trying to do more than one thing at a time without even realizing it became a usual habit after Lia was born. It was challenging to adjust at first, but once I've set my mind on how to do it… well, let me tell you that I can’t stop multitasking. At one point, you can say that this multitasking thing is the best. I mean I can do this and that and the other in just hours, right?! But at times it can leave me physically and emotionally exhausted. Really. Over and over again I found myself looking for that extra time I need to recover myself. But it frequently feels impossible to do so. My mother is always telling me; take one day at a time, forget about everything, and anything for a while. Take a nap even if you only have ten minutes to spare. And yes, mom is right, I do need that nap.

Finding the time to nurture ourselves should be an everyday thing. Isn’t it?!

On the other hand, time goes so fast nowadays that having some time off to dedicate to ourselves often seems like a luxury instead of necessityHow is that possible?... 

I mean, dedicating ourselves some time to take a nap, or hydrating our bodies (by drinking the quantity of water our body needs), going for a walk or preparing and giving our bodies a good bowl of homemade food, is something that 'we need' to keep going. And it shouldn't be postponed.  

Simply because ‘we humans' need those basic things in life to feel restored, nourished, energized, and happier. But I suppose we all tend to forget this about ourselves sometimes. And with all the challenges one can have ‘to find the time,’ to feed our bodies with all those simple things, it always feels amazing once going back to the basics of life. And yes, from time to time we need to stop. And give our bodies a natural cleanse and rest to feel restore and get that extra boost of energy. And believe me, I’m looking forward to taking that nap this weekend.

I invite you to stop for a while and give yourself some nourishment. Cleanse and restore your body, mind, and spirit. You can start by preparing simple meals, take the time to rest, relax, and reconnect with yourself in the upcoming days. 

Below I prepared three new recipes for you; The Super Enjoyable Green Juice + Cleanse Asian Salad + Simple Turmeric Tea. And a list of some simple steps you can follow to help you with your body cleanse. These are enjoyable wholesome recipes full of nutrition that you can also incorporate into your every day eating. 

As always as would love to hear from you and tell me about your experience!



Eat lots of whole foods, and prepare foods with simplicity to preserve its nutritional value. Eat lots of green leaves, cruciferous, legumes, nuts, and seeds. You can incorporate fermented vegetables, or try these vegetarian tacos with fermented cabbage, this turmeric lemonade (which is great for cleansing and restoring the body).

Also try different vegetable juices like the one I shared in this post a while ago. This reviving beetroot salad that tastes incredibly good! Or if you're craving for something warm during your cleansing you can try this Thai inspired pumpkin soup. 
Just remember to avoid refined sugars, starches, and all kind of processed food.

Drink at least eight glasses of clean water. We hear this all the time, right?! Sometimes we tend to we forget this often…and yes, I include myself on the listBy drinking water, we help our bodies improve blood circulation, eliminate accumulated toxins plus as a bonus our skin and other organs feel hydrated and rejuvenated.

Shake off all those toxins by doing some exercise (outside or inside the house, really!) Exercise also improves blood circulation through the body. Bringing lots of healthy benefits. You can go for a long walk, dance, do yoga or even go for a run. Just remember to do this with caution if you are doing a body cleanse. Otherwise, you will feel too exhausted.

Cleanse and rest your mind, body, and spirit. Yes, ladies, we have to do this one more often! Sometimes is challenging for us ‘busy ladies’ to have some relaxation…particularly when having a family to care. But whenever you have ‘time’ even if no more than 10 minutes, just breath…and take some time for yourself. And do nothing for a while! Read a book, take a bath, listen to some calming music. This will help you feel revive physically, mentally and also emotionally.
