Did you go a little overboard this weekend on the goodies? It happens! I'm imagining today you're definitely feeling off your game... bloated... fatigued... and just down right crappy! Well, I'm here to help get you back on track and ready to hit this week with a fresh start!
Here's your Monday Madness Detox Menu:
Immediately after waking, have a warm/hot glass of water with 1 TBS lemon juice. To add a little punch and really get your system alive and kickin', add 1 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
This is the most important meal and what will keep you energized and ready to take on the day, so with breakfast we do not want to skimp out or avoid completely!
1/2 cup (women) or 3/4 cup (men) of cooked oats with a dash of cinnamon, 1 TBS nut butter or coconut oil and 1/2 cup of blue berries or raspberries (men will have 1 cup of berries) with 1 whole egg and 3-4 egg whites (men will have 1-2 whole eggs and 5-6 egg whites)
Detox Juice: I cup of spinach or kale, 1/2 a cucumber, 1/2 cup of pineapple, 1 TBS chia seeds, fresh mint and/or parsley
One grapefruit with a drizzle of honey
Large salad with 2 cups of leafy greens, veggies and 3-4oz grilled chicken or fish (6-8oz. for men) or 1/2 cup (women) or 3/4 cup (men) of black beans or lentils (vegan/vegetarian) with 1/2 sliced apple, and 1/4 sliced avocado with 1 TBS olive oil and squeezed lemon and/or lime juice for dressing.
1 cup of veggies with 1/4 cup (women) or 1/2 cup (men) of hummus or guacamole
1 cup of strawberries with 1/2oz. (women) or 1oz. (men) of almonds
3-4oz. (women) or 6-8oz. (men) lean protein: chicken breast, extra-lean ground turkey, hard boiled egg whites or fish; or for vegans: 1/2 cup (women) or 3/4 cup (men) of lentils with 2 cups of veggies topped with 1 TBS olive oil or coconut oil
*Make sure to drink at least 100oz. of water today. If you're going to have a workout today, make sure you add a small banana as a pre-workout snack and have your lunch or dinner immediately afterward or one scoop of protein powder in water or unsweetened almond milk.
