Woohoo! You've made it to week 4 of our sustainable wellness journey!
If you’re just joining, you might want to check out weeks 1-3 where we focused on exercise, hydration, and getting rid of unwanted toxins. Today, we embark on week #4, where we focus on all the detoxifying, cleansing foods that we should be putting in!
Now that your body is enjoying the benefits of daily or weekly exercise and regular hydration, your entire being is ready to be fueled with energy that doesn’t just get you through the day, but creates a happier, more energetic version of yourself!
Before we continue on our journey, we need to help our body adjust to eating habits that will be both sustainable and delicious. Which is why this week, we are focusing on increasing our consumption of naturally detoxifying foods.
The most natural, detoxifying foods are (no surprise here) organic fruits and vegetables. What you might not have known is that while the liver helps detoxify our bodies, foods high in sulfur actually help detoxify our liver! This makes incorporating sulfur-rich fruits and vegetables into your diet a great idea. Foods that contain significant amounts of sulfur include fibrous, non-leafy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, onions, and garlic, and kale.
Three weeks in, two to go! Let’s do this!
We're living in a stressful time. COVID-19 has disrupted life as we know it, and some of us may be dealing with added fear and anxiety around the unknown and uncertainty about the disease. Whether you are concerned for your own health or the health of others, the stress can be overwhelming at times. As May is mental health awareness month, and O2 Living has partnered with the JCK Foundation, we want to share how we are managing our stress during this pandemic.
Allergies... We certainly hear that word a lot today. It is estimated that 50 million Americans suffer with some form of allergy, placing it on the top of the list of medical ailments. So what actually causes allergies and why do allergies appear to be on the rise?
