3 Nourishing Deep Cleanse Recipes

Your body is a temple, but even temples need a clean.

Fitness expert and clean living guru Sally Matterson says, “It’s amazing how the body has the ability to heal itself when you give it a chance. Once we stop the overindulging it starts to rid toxicity.”

She lists the symptoms of a toxic body as, having a “foggy” brain, weight and body fat gain, depression and anxiety, mood swings and lack of motivation and productivity.

Beauty expert Emma-Charlotte Bangay suggests that tapping into the toxins weighing you down is essential in maintaining health inside and out. “Fat may not be the culprit that is bulking you up, it may in fact be due to hormone imbalance and an impaired lymphatic drainage of toxins,” she says.

“The latter is really hard to move through the body and if your liver is sluggish (piled up with toxins) the body stores fat in the nearest tissues.“

When it comes to detoxifying through what and how we eat, holistic health expert and naturopath Anthia Koullouros says the key is elimination.

“Sometimes, my clients can feel quite deflated when they hear the word ‘eliminate’,” she says. “Rather than focusing on ‘giving things up’ focus on what you gain – an abundance of energy, clarity and balance and a light and lean body.”

She cites the following foods are devoid of nutrition, hard to digest, fattening and addictive: sugar, grains, processed dairy, caffeine, artificial additives, refined salt and alcohol.

Here are RESCU’s top three cleansing (and delicious) recipes to up your intake of the good stuff:
