Nordic detox to start the year
I love to cook and eat food and drinking good wine and just enjoy all the glory … but after a while it turns on both the wave and the overall condition, it might become a bit too much of a good thing.
That´s when I do a detox. An “detoxification” of the body’s waste products piled up for a long time.
This means that for a period of ten days to two weeks, I and my partner (who willingly hangs on) eat only vegetables, fruits, nuts and berries. No coffee, no alcohol, no salt (that’s the hardest part) no meat and only very little dairy.
It’s not fun at all the first three-four days but then … it’s a kick! The body feels lighter, clearer head, eyes become brighter and we feel so much better.
The idea is to then try to continue with more vegetables and fruit in our diet, but it tends to go a bit so-so with it. When food is one’s livelihood, it is difficult to limit yourself, and I do not want to do that either, but one detox a year is both good and refreshing … so today is the start of this year´s detox.
Here you can find the recipes (in swedish) I will be inspired by this year. The main thing is to eat a lot of fruit and veg and can´t be wrong! Here the recipe for today’s lunch.
Here you go!
