After such a greedy few weeks, we are feeling very unhappy with our post easter diet. Time to take a trip on the fruity train and detox from all the roast dinners and chocolate eggs. Yes even the fruity team enjoy an egg or too (don’t judge us). We thought it would be nice to bring you a few ways in which we can cleanse our body using the power of fruit.
The Fruity Facts
Very brightly colored fruits tend to have high amounts of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Try to include a wide variety when you are trying to cleanse your body so that you get the full range of benefits. Oranges are full of beneficial lycopene and vitamin C. Berries, particularly blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, are high in fiber and antioxidants, while bananas, apples, pears and avocados are high in fiber and micronutrients, and will help you feel full.
Try adding some lemon to your water bottle. You will be amazed at the benefits of putting a simple slice of lemon in your water will have.
-Aids in digestion and detoxification
-Bumps up your vitamin C intake
-Rejuvenates skin and heals the body
-Boosts Energy and mood
Top salads with dried cranberries or raisins, or with sliced pears, oranges, nectarines, strawberries, or grapefruit. It may sound a little strange to be adding fruit to your salad, but it really does taste amazing and adds that extra bit of fruity goodness to your diet.
Keep dried fruit on hand for a snack that is easy to take with you when you’re away from home. Try our deliciously morish Get Fruity bars in your handbag, backpack or lunchbox, they are even handy to have in the car. You can get a multipack of 4 x 35g from Tesco, Waitrose & Ocado for £2.49
Try baking apple or pear and topping them with natural honey or cinnamon or a crumbled up Get Fruity bar. The perfect dessert to keep your after dinner sweetness at bay and adds that fruity punch to your day.
Add fruit to your morning routine, in smoothies, on top of your porridges or on the go in little tubs. The most important meal of the day is breakfast!
We hope you enjoyed our fruity tips for an after easter detox!
