What To Eat After a Weekend of Indulging

 

As we bring March to a close this week, I wanted to share my best tips for "spring cleaning" the body after an indulgent weekend.

Oh how we love our weekends! The freedom with our schedules, a little extra sleep, the endless possibilities of things to do... and at the same time it can be easy to overdo it when it comes to our cocktails and treats.

Let's be honest... sometimes that is our goal for the weekend! And, it is just FUNto let go and "go for the gold" when it comes to the culinary fare we have access to these days.

We also know that too many of these days can leave us feeling lethargic, stuffed, and in need of a detox. So, today I have some simple tricks on how to recover after a night or weekend of overindulging to help reset your body.


Remember that the primary goal after a weekend of indulging is to rehydrate our body and reset our digestive system so it is ready to resume normal eating.


Here are my Weekend Recovery Tips:

Drink... water that is.

  • Drink 20oz first thing in the morning
  • Aim to drink a total of 3 liters throughout the day
  • Warm water with apple cider vinegar and/or lemon does wonders for hydration and the stomach!

Eat At Regular Intervals

  • Instead of skipping meals to makeup for overdoing it, begin your day with a complete breakfast
  • Then eat a snack/meal every 3-4 hours throughout the day always including fruits/vegetables and whole food ingredients.

Reset Your Digestion

  • Probiotics, ginger, turmeric, and vitamins are a quick way to get your body going first thing in the morning.
  • Choose a probiotic with at least 10 billion CFU
  • Add ginger and turmeric to teas, salads, & smoothies to decrease inflammation and assist digestion
