In between the festivities and indulgence , I thought it will be a good idea to detox. I do a detox meal plan at least once a month , and if I am eating out or feel bloated I do it twice a month. My Most preferred Detox Plan includes this healthy and filling Spinach & Cucumber Detox Smoothie If you are pregnant or a nursing mother or under medication please do not take a detox meal plan without consulting a Doctor.
The cucumber & spinach smoothie contains lot of dietary fibre. I also add oat bran which is a again high on fibre and makes one feel fuller. The detox meal plan not only cleanses the body but also aids weight loss. When I started making the Spinach & Cucumber Smoothie I used to use only cucumber and spinach. I used to find it bitter and started adding honey but felt that it was adding calories. Finally I replaced Honey with an apple, which adds volume & fibre and also makes the smoothie sweet.
When on a detox meal plan I take the Spinach & Cucumber Detox Smoothie for breakfast and dinner. Along with the smoothie I also take a small portion of home made cottage cheese flavoured with cardamom and saffron. You can add a teaspoon of sugar to it, too. For Lunch I have a Light vegetable , Salad and Chapati. This way I do not feel low on energy and also feel much more energised and fresh the next day.
