January Kick Start
Kick the January blues and go green
After Christmas excess who hasn’t swung into a January of abstinence, to fail at the first pop of a cork? January is the worst time to detox anyway, so ease up on the guilt and go for a green January instead: gently support the liver and pile on the nutritional load in five easy moves.
Drink three cups of green tea each day: high antioxidants, lower caffeine, immune boosting and anti-inflammatory.
Add dried seaweed to vegetable soups or a warming mug of miso – the seaweed looks like spinach when cooked and is seriously high in detoxifying minerals.
Have spicy watercress three times a week – in soups, salads and delicious chopped into cooked carrots instead of parsley. High in vitamin C, very liver cleansing
Whizz up a green smoothie: lime juice, cucumber, avocado, kiwi fruit, watercress, a good sprig of parsley, Bramley apple juice and coconut juice
Try a super-greens powder for extra oomph: ProGreens are exceptional
