So i am not going to blog about my not so interesting life. but instead i am going to write about random things that can help with acne, body weight issues and tons more.
the other day my mother found this cleansing recipe that cleanses your body of all the bad toxins and i thought you guys migh want to try it out.
This simple soup will revitalize your system as part of a Detox diet.
1 pound of spinach
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced leek
3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
Sauté the onions, carrots, celery, leek in a pot with the oil and garlic.
Add the water and Thyme, simmer for one hour then leave to cool for one hour.
Puree in a blender, then put back in the pot on medium heat.
Add the spinach, cook until it wilts, and serve hot!
Many people believe that foods rich in the alkaline minerals sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium help to neutralize toxic acids that can harm the body. This soup is overloaded with all those ingredients and should help you feel great!
2 cup carrot tops
2 cups celery tops
2 cups beet tops
2 quarts distilled water
3 cups celery stalk
3 cups water
2 cups red skinned potato peeling 1/2 inch thick
1 small zucchini
Chops all the vegetables into small pieces. Place them in a pot and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, with the lid on, for 30 minutes.
Did you think that cleansing food needs to be bland and tasteless? Well here's the proof that its not!
6 four-ounce pieces of red snapper
juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon peppercorns
1 bay leaf
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
2 pounds of kale
2 red peppers
1 cup basil
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place the snapper pieces in a shallow baking tray, covered with water, and add the lemon juice, peppercorns and bay leaf. Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
While the fish is cooking, sauté the kale with olive oil and garlic. Place the kale on plates - this is the base of the dish. Now broil the peppers until blackened. Remove the skin and seeds, dice, and sauté the pieces with olive oil and basil. Allow to cool and puree.
To complete the dish, divide the Kale between 6 plates. Place the fish on top, and drizzle the coulis!
This hearty and filling soup is all goodness, and it tastes great too!
6 -8 Decent size Broccoli Heads
1/3 Red Onion
1 Celery Stick
Big Handful of Spinach
An Inch of Root Ginger
Lightly steam the broccoli, for 5-6 minutes. Place it and all the other ingredients in a blender. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
Megan Fox doesn't use any diets to stay in trim. Instead she follows a low calorie diet and supplements it with apple cider vinegar to cleanse her system.
Apple cider vinegar can increase your metabolism and aid with weight loss, but it can also remove toxins from your body and help with problems such as acne, indigestion and high blood pressure.
( copied all of this information from www.justcleansing.com/recipies.htm ) if this link doesn't work try www.justcleansing.com and search the site it has great information. anyways i am going to try all of these things this week to see how it works. also on this site it has skin cleansing recipes you should check it out. here is an article from www.justcleansing.com about skin cleansing
A good skin cleanse will improve your complexion and restore a vital organ in your body to health. There are 4 main ways to achieve this - Skin Brushing, Sauna, Contrast Showers and Diet.
This is a technique, used in many Asian spas, to eliminate toxins by stimulating the lymphatic system. The idea is that firm but gentle brush strokes across the skin will improve your blood circulation, clean out clogged pores and enable your body to remove toxins faster.
First you need to buy a brush from your local health food store. It should have natural bristles and a long handle. Secondly, make sure your skin is dry. Many people do a skin brushing in the morning just before their shower, so that the dead cells are immediately washed away.
Start the skin brushing with the soles of your feet, using slow, gentle, circular movements. Move up your body, all the time brushing towards your chest, but be careful to avoid areas where your skin is particularly sensitive.
If you've ever been to Sweden then you know that some cultures regularly use saunas to detoxify, cleanse and lose weight. If you don't have your own sauna, then going to your local gym is a great way to find one. Saunas actually work better after exercise, because when you sweat your pores open up.
A good sauna will increase blood circulation and dislodge chemicals that are stuck to your fat cells. Make sure that the sauna has not been treated with toxic chemicals.
Be careful to drink lots of water and ensure that your mineral levels are high enough - there are plenty of new 'vitamin water' drinks that are perfect for this.
Stay in the sauna from 15-45 minutes, and make sure that the sauna is not too hot. If you find yourself sweating heavily after only 15 minutes, then you should turn the temperature down.
You can't do an effective skin cleanse without changes to your diet. The most important advice is to drink more water. You should be drinking at least 8-12 glasses of water a day to flush out the toxins from your body.
As for food, make sure that you are getting all the vitamins and minerals that you need. Using some of the recipes from our juice cleansing page will help, and vitamin supplements are also a good idea.
A great way to improve your blood circulation and immune system is with contrast showers.
Improved circulation brings nutrients to damaged skin cells and carries away waste products, while contrast showers can also increase the number of your white blood cells and boost your immune system.
Start with 3 minutes of hot water, followed by less than a minute of cold water. Repeat this cycle at least once. A good time to do a contrast shower is straight after the gym, perhaps before or after using the sauna.
Without even realizing it, we pollute our body with toxic beauty products. Creams and potions are absorbed into our skin and scalp, but some of these harmful chemicals in our beauty regimes could also be causing skin problems such as acne, eczema and rashes. Switch to reputable natural organic products such as to natural soaps, skin creams, shampoos, conditioners and detergents.
