Tired? Irritable? Acne? Cramps? Mood swings?
Let’s be honest- how many times did you sneak candy from the Halloween stash over the weekend? No judgement here, it totally happens! Plus, sugar isn’t just in candy. It hides in every processed food, in salad dressings, in jarred sauces, frozen meals and it’s definitely in alcoholic beverages.
But if you’re struggling with a sugar hangover, it’s time to take a 1-day break to help reset your blood sugar. Try my easy plan below to help you recover and get your system back online.
-> Eat fat, protein & veggies at every meal.
-> Up your fat intake – it keeps the body lubricated and will help to keep you satiated.
-> Drink water – at least half body weight in ounces (150lbs = 75oz).
-> Eat enough so you don’t snack in-between meals.
-> Sugar, grains and all processed food.
Glass of room temperature water with 1/2 lemon squeezed in
Breakfast: Eggs & Greens
Scramble/saute eggs and Swiss chard (or spinach) with ghee or coconut oil + a big bowl of fresh arugula tossed with extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon.
Lunch: Baked Salmon & Kale
While salmon is roasting, massage the kale with 1 avocado and a drizzle of olive oil until the leaves looked ‘cooked’.
Dinner: Chicken & Veggies
Roast a chicken thigh, broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini. Sprinkle veggies with flaky sea salt and nutritional yeast.
- Sip milk thistle or nettle tea between meals.
- Eat 2 bites of fermented foods at the start of every meal.
- Move your body. Movement helps your lymphatic system move metabolic waste.
- Sweat! Sauna, steam room, or exercise. Your skin is one way you detox, so leverage it.
