Today, I declare, is Recovery Day. I got together with some friends last night, and after one too many treats (read: ice cream abomination) I woke up this morning with a need to detoxify!
Angela recently wrote a post about getting back on track after an indulgence that I felt was extremely helpful for me. You can find her post: HERE. She talks about using superfoods and other “healing” items that will get you feeling back to normal in no time. Now, I don’t have any wheatgrass shots or special vitamins, since I usually stick to my ever so loyal Flintstones Vitamins. So I created my own number of steps to detoxify.
step 1 this morning was:
In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 4 cups of organic spinach
- 1 scoop of Amazing Meal, original flavor
- 1 packet Stevia
- fresh squeezed lemon
- tons of ice
Lemon has the ability to refresh and detoxify your body….perfect for this declared recovery day. :)
The workout plan is to get bus-ay right after I press Publish. On the agenda:
Anyone heard of Hip Hop Abs? It is made from the same people as Turbo Jam, which I have expressed my love for recently. It, too, is a fun workout…I usually end up laughing through the whole thing because the main instructor gets so into the music. Fun times.
And there you have it, my easy peasy 3 step recovery plan, adapted from the lovely Angela!
In other news:
I bought a spiralizer!
After seeing all the delicious creations on Fitnessista’s, Averie’s, and Gena’s blogs, I finally succumbed and ordered one off of Amazon. Want to get one for youself? No problem, you can find it HERE.
I can’t wait to put together some raw deliciousness in the very near future. Lets hope this gets delivered ASAP!
Recipes I have my eye on:
And here’s one more recipe that has nothing to do with spiralized veggies, but is definitely food-gasm worthy:
Averie, you’ve outdone yourself on this one. I want them balls. (do I even need to say it? Why yes, I think I will…That’s What She Said).
Ok, I’m off to continue on with my Recovery Day.
How are you spending YOUR Sunday?
