1. Collard Greens
Did you know that collard greens are excellent for digestion? When you’ve been eating poor foods (especially during the holidays), your digestive system can get really messed up. To cleanse your body and get your system working the way it should, add some collard greens to your daily diet. Steam them for just a few minutes to reap maximum vitamins and to avoid the unpleasant smell they develop when overcooked.
When you’re trying to get healthy, having a salad every single day is essential. However, sometimes it can get a bit boring. For a sweet and exciting new twist, add pomegranate seeds to your next salad. Pomegranates have amazing antioxidant powers and can add not only flavor, but also texture to your salads! Drink a glass of pomegranate juice along with your meal if you don’t have access to the fresh fruit. Make certain it’s 100% organic pomegranate juice, not from concentrate.
Spice up your life with a little cinnamon. Add it to your morning smoothie for a nice, flavorful kick. It will help keep you full for a lot longer, because it assists in regulating your blood sugar. Any sharp spice in the cinnamon family will boost your metabolism, creating more energy and causing fat to burn away!
