Finding yourself constantly drained for no reason?
I feel like this is a regular occurrence for everyone, and it’s frustrating.
The best part is that there are many things you can do to increase your overall energy levels.
I assure you, if you stick to healthy eating, it will embellish more of your life than just in the energy department.
- Control your weight
- Improve your mood
- Combat disease
- Increase longevity
To jumpstart you into these benefits, I am going to give you a list of 5 foods that will help get your body back to it’s best health.
Now would be the time to relax and take a breath because I am here for you.
5 FOODS TO HELP YOU REBOOT YOUR BODY:
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”
I swear I was told that about a million times as a kid. There actually is some truth behind it, though!
The fiber “pectin” in the apple helps to detox metals and additives that your body has been gathering over the years.
Why not start your day by chomping down on a juicy apple? It tastes delicious and aids your body, strengthening your immune system.
“Asparagus makes your pee smell”
Sadly, yes, this is true, haha.
HOWEVER, there are a few super cool benefits that’ll make you reconsider eating it:
- Helps reduce stress
- Great way to prevent a hangover (had to throw this in there because we all love enjoying ourselves from time to time)
- Natural diuretic that helps with liver drainage
Now, I know you’re probably thinking that this isn’t necessarily something you’ll be eating in your everyday life.
That’s a fair thought to have.
Why not incorporate it as your veggie in your meal prep for the week? Not EVERY week, but doing it every now and then can really benefit your health by reducing stress, and so much more!
“Guacamole costs extra”
I don’t know why places feel the need to even say this anymore. It’s pretty universally understood.
That aside.. not only are avocados tasty, they are a detoxing SUPERSTAR.
Avocados help to get rid of toxins in your body. How? They contain “glutathione”, which helps detoxify synthetic chemicals in your liver.
The best part is that you can even make delicious desserts out of them. Don’t believe me?
I’m not one of those people that hate this green veggie. I actually love it. I tend to steam it up and toss it in a bit of coconut oil (delicious).
As far as health benefits go, broccoli increases your glutathione. This helps to transform the toxins in your body into ones that can quite easily be eliminated.
Therefore, over time, your body won’t have to work as hard.
If that doesn’t have you sold, I’ll simply say broccoli is linked to longevity in life.
Maybe not the best for your breath, but they sure help make your body work less hard (like broccoli).
Onions are jam packed with sulfur-containing amino acids that help to detox your liver.
Other neat benefits to onions?
- Provide flu and cold relief
- Anti-inflammatory abilities
- High in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants
You’ve made it to the finish line of this life-changing information, so…
TIME TO GET SHOPPING!
I cannot stress enough how important it is to take care of your body for as long as possible.
It’s safe to say liver health was also an overall theme of this post, which shows you how vital this organ is, and why it’s good to take care of it.
Take a minute right now: think about how much fuller your life will be with all the energy these foods will give you?
This is the way to a long, full life. Trust that.
