If you have ever felt that the packaged food, the alcohol, the chemical infested products going into your body have just completely congested your system, you are not alone! The truth behind what is inside the products that we get most of our “nutrition” from has come out in recent years. And the result is not pretty.
Just seeing and reading in depth what sort of ingredients are in the food and drinks we put in our bodies is quite disturbing.
If you have recently done this and are now left with an unsettling feeling in your mind and in your stomach, we have some information for you. There is a way to get all that stuff out! With all the fads that are going on in recent times, like a juice detox or kicking out the gluten in your diet, there are so many options to turn to when trying to detox your body.
However healthy that some of these options are for you, most of these diets can leave you wanting more and feeling unsatisfied. Some of the products that are available to you to adhere to these diets can also actually be quite disgusting. Today, however, we can introduce to you a much better and tastier alternative to these diets, yet they still produce the same quality of effects. These ingredients are also completely all natural and completely ALL DELICIOUS.
Though it may seem obvious that when trying to detox your body you should stay away from not so pure or cleaning foods, some of the bad eggs are in harmless appearing drinks or foods you consume every day. For instance: Caffeine! (Stay away from that caffeinated morning cup for a little while! Also sodas, etc. Any chocolates, candies or sweets. These are loaded with sugar and will clog and counteract everything that you are trying to accomplish during the detoxing period.
Another tip to go to while trying to detox is to avoid overeating. Once you start to feel satisfied, try to stop eating. Don’t starve yourself!! But eating too much (for you) makes your body work at a high load, which might collect all the toxins and properties in one place. This will be very counteractive to the detoxification process.
Here down below, we are giving you five ingredients to work with on a daily basis to best kick out the toxins from your body. But there are so many more! There are also great recipes for smoothie blends using these (and other) ingredients to complete detoxing.

Try to avoid the fatty guacamole options when eating avocados and reach for the organic avocados. Their antioxidants and fiber are extremely useful in the detoxing process.

2. Green Tea

3. Olive Oil
Mama Mia, this yummy “fat” can actually help you detox your body! Though that doesn’t mean what you think it means (sprinkle it on your spaghetti, or fry it up and pour some chopped and sliced potatoes in it). No, those were perfect examples of how to NOT make olive oil benefit you.
Instead, to make olive oil work its detoxing magic, make it your choice when you need to cook with fat. It’s best if you don’t turn the heat up too much. It’s also great to drizzle (sparingly) over your salad for a yummy dressing, with some vinegar. And voila! Detox and yum.

Though some may argue that water is actually quite tasteless, we think water is delicious!
