Top Summer Detox Foods and advice to prevent illness year round:
1. Eat dark leafy green vegetables every day, such as salads, micro greens, sprouts or steamed kale. Pile greens into your wraps and sandwiches, your burritos and even in your fruit smoothies (try spinach or romaine).
2. Enjoy decadent amounts of berries, such as strawberries, raspberries and
blueberries.They make great desserts, toppings and even taste delicious in salad
3. Drink copious amounts of plain water to stay hydrated.
4. VITAMIN D! Vitamin D is now known to provide us with radiant health and disease/cancer prevention. Your best source of Vitamin D is sunshine 🙂 We store Vitamin D in our fat cells so we have a supply for the winter months when the sun is not strong enough to provide us with vitamin D. It is important during the summer months to get outside! Fill your body with stores of Vitamin D to last you all winter long (you can always supplement with a trip to Maui in the winter as well 😉
When you eat light, juicy seasonal summer foods, the intestinal mucosa in your digestive system will stay clear and healthy. Remember, in nature it is not about avoiding certain foods. It is about eating more of the good ones.
