In order to get my healthy eating back on track and to give my body a break after so many days of eating sugary treats and large family meals, I have been looking into creating a short detox program for myself. I first heard about what a detox was through reading about Ashley and Stephen's month long detox over at (never home)maker (congratulations to their new born baby girl, Ada) and since then I have been learning more about the benefits of giving your liver a rest and using things like yoga and increased water consumption to clean out your system and have you feeling brand new. I still feel like I have much to learn on detoxing and am not quite ready to go on an official detox, so I have taken out a few books from the library to look through during these last few days of vacation and will let you guys know what I learn.
Until then, here are some of the more simple new years resolutions I have made.
Almond milk! This year I wanted to take another step towards becoming a vegan and after discussing it with my mother, I have made the move from cow's milk to almond milk. From now on when I make myself hot chocolate at night, or a fruit smoothie in the morning, or even when I bake cookies, I will use almond milk. So far I have picked up 2 kinds of "Silk" almond milk and they are both really satisfying, but if anyone has suggestions, please let me know.
Eat more avocados! That's right. The fruit I once refused to try I have now become quite a fan of after hearing about it's nutritional qualities. As of now I only eat avocados in rolls of veggie sushi, but this year I shall make the effort to incorporate avocados into my diet more.
