A post-Diwali detox is what your body needs right now!
After umpteen festival banquets and nights out, it’s time for some healing self-love! Try these wonderful drinks for a cleansing of your system and to experience a new energy coursing through your body!
Petha Juice for a cool inner system!
White Petha is one of Ayurveda’s hero vegetables. Also called chakla in some parts of the country, it’s supposed to be the most alkaline vegetable and hence very healthy.
Take a piece of Petha ( organic, chemical-free is best) and blend it in the mixie with a dash of ginger, pink salt and pepper. Top up with a dash of lemon. Tastes yum and does good, too. Supposed to be had each morning on an empty stomach.
Turmeric is one of my favourite things!
Curcumin in turmeric is the anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant that makes turmeric such a wonderful herb to have daily!
Try blending fresh turmeric with a small piece of ginger. Add pink salt, pepper and a half lemon. Enjoy! Also to be had the first thing every morning.
Green Smoothie with Amla and ginger!
Any green such as spinach or amaranth works with this one. Take the leaves and tender stems; blend with amla, ginger, tulsi leaves, mint leaves, pepper and pink salt. If carrots are in season, you can add a few pieces for taste.
