Dr Oz: Holiday Detox Plan
It is the holiday season, which is when many of us indulge while spending time with family and friends. To keep your body on track, Dr. Oz revealed his 2-Day Holiday Detox so you do not have to stop eating the delicious treats you love most this time of year.
Dr Oz: Fast-Flushing Melon Water Recipe
Dr. Oz says his Holiday Detox is not just a juice cleanse since you can still eat the foods you love at every holiday party. His cleanse is unique because it gets rid of bloat, rebalances blood sugar, removes toxins and recharges your metabolism. Is there one treat that you simply cannot live without this time of year? Do you crave it even though you know it is not good for your diet? If so, Dr. Oz has some solutions to help you find a healthier alternative.
Dr Oz’s Fast-Flushing Water:
- 3 cups melon – high in water content
- 1 cup coconut water – rich in potassium to help flush sodium from the body
- 2 cups water
Blend the ingredients together and drink 5 cups each day.
Dr Oz: Oatmeal & Peanut Butter Detox Breakfast
The next step in Dr. Oz’s 2-Day Holiday Detox is to have Oatmeal for breakfast. Dr. Oz says oatmeal actually has elements to it that serve as a diuretic, which is good when you want to flush toxins from the body. He added that combining peanut butter with your oatmeal is a great way to support healthy digestion because it contains niacin.
Dr Oz: Lentil Soup Rebalances Blood Sugar
If you are like my husband and son, you cannot drink enough eggnog this time of year, but since it is not exactly the healthiest beverage to consume because it causes your blood sugar to skyrocket, Dr. Oz has a liquid lunch solution to rebalance your blood sugar.
Here is what you need for Dr Oz’s Lentil Soup:
- 1 cup lentils
- 3 cups chicken broth
- ½ onion
- 1 cup tomatoes
- ½ cup celery
Combine everything together for a low glycemic soup or if you do not have time to make the soup at home you can buy low-sodium canned lentil soup at the grocery store for the same benefit.
Dr Oz: Cabbage Salad with Grilled Chicken
Dr. Oz says many of us love sweets during the holiday season, so the next step in his Holiday Detox is to remove fat toxins from the body.
- 2 cups purple cabbage
- 1 chicken breast
- 1 orange
- 1 ounce pumpkin seeds
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
Dr. Oz says this protein-packed salad will help remove the fat toxins that have built up in your body after eating too many sweets.
Dr Oz: Chocolate Tea Metabolism Booster
Dr. Oz’s final tip for his Holiday Detox is to drink a tea that not only tastes good, but also recharges your metabolism.
Chocolate Tea – Satisfies your sweet tooth while giving your metabolism a much-needed boost. Drink it as a snack in the afternoon or as a dessert after dinner during Dr. Oz’s 2-Day Holiday Detox.
