I know it’s not just the kids that will be dealing with a sugar hangover tomorrow. We all sneak sugar here and there. Candy from the basket or the copious amounts of chocolate and candy hanging around in the office. And that doesn’t even disappear once Halloween is over. We all know that offices become dumping grounds for all the extra candy we don’t don’t want at home.
Sneaking the treats for one day is one thing but continuing over the next few days is where the damage happens. Practicing good eating habits and mindful eating from now will stop overeating. You are probably already dealing with a sugar hangover.
Clear out your system and feel good again by starting the day with a lemon water drink. Cold or warm, it doesn’t matter. Tonight, prepare your blender with ingredients for a smoothie in the morning. Add coconut water, yogurt, almond milk – whatever liquids you have for the base. Add as much fruit as you want/can. Trying including a banana if you have one. Frozen fruits are great to keep on hand for convenience as well as variety when we get deeper into winter and the selection decreases. Flax oil is a great addition and some kind of green vegetable is vital to revitalise yourself. Nothing fresh? Keep a greens powder on hand, wheatgrass for instance, so you can have a little whenever you need it. Finally, throw in a splash of maple syrup if you need to sweeten it.
If you have a juicer, go for a beet, ginger and greens juice to get you going. Arm yourself with a bottle of filtered water and you will be ready to not only recharge, but to avoid those leftover temptations as well.
