Smile and say: zucchini spaghetti!
Who said that drinking vegetable juices for several weeks is the only way to successfully detox? A few good diet habits might just do the trick, while still keeping your eating pleasure. The trick is to replace heavy dishes with healthier ones and incorporate detox ingredients to your meals: with the right recipe, your brain won’t even notice the change, you will still feel content after you’ve finished eating, and the deliciousness of the meals will keep you in a motivated and strong-willed mood!
For example, why not swap pasta with zoodles (zucchini noodles)? Say goodbye to gluten and hello to all the wonders of this very low calorie vegetable – only 17 calories per 100g! Vitamins A and C, potassium, antioxydants… Zucchinis are your skin and body’s best ally and can be cooked in a variety of tasty recipes.
Feel as light as a feather
Sports is not optional if you want to detox and get your health back on track.

It can help to increase strength and body awareness, and most of all, you will lift up your mood while lifting up your body. You will be totally addicted to this feeling of freedom you get when hanging in the air like a circus acrobat.

Oh, you want it to bust stress as well? Just add a few drops in your bath and wash away your stress.
