Winter can mean a lot of things. For a lot of us, it's that time of the year where we can finally drag our skiing gear out of storage and get back on the hill. Others like to spend as much time indoors as possible, all bundled up in their favourite onesies with a hot chocolate in their hand. Unfortunately, winter does have its downs. For example, it can get very chilly here in Montreal and it is very likely that we'll end up coming down with the flu or a cold during this snowy winter.
Being sick is the absolute worst. It prevents you from going to work and you know... making money. It also deprives you from the incredible feeling that you get when you're hanging out with your friends because you're stuck in quarantine. Let's face it... winter has its ups, but it sure as hell has its downs.
So how do you bounce back to normal and out of the zombie state?
Well, you could try going to the doctor and getting some medication, which is sure to help, but what about the stuff that you're putting in your body? From the food that you're eating to the liquids that you're drinking, everything you're absorbing while sick is very important for recovery.
Our friends at Glow Smoothies offer an incredible cleanse that combines the great taste of their smoothies with all kinds of superfoods that your body needs to recover and regain energy.
Their smoothies are made with fruits, vegetables, and superfoods, and were developed with the help of a naturopath with your well-being in mind! Their cleanse consists of 6 smoothies a day, which means that they can replace your meals and snacks, or complete them. Now, if this doesn't sound like a lot of food to get you going through the day, just keep in mind that each one of these 500 ml smoothies are jam-packed with whole foods, and are fiber-filled to keep you full!
I had the chance to try the Glow Smoothie cleanse when I was feeling a little under the weather a couple of weeks ago and I gotta say that it is one of the most delicious beverages I've ever had! Not only that, but I really did feel the benefits of the smoothies. I promise. (Scout's honour!)
Some of those benefits include:
- Improved physical and mental well-being
- Increased energy level
- Reduction of cravings
- Reduction of bloating and subsequent weight loss
- Better quality of sleep
- Luminous skin (Girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrls this one is for you!)
- Strengthened immune system
Another great thing about the smoothies is that you can enjoy them whenever! You don't have to feel sick to indulge in one of their cleanses. Whether you had one too many helpings of turkey over the holidays or if work has got you feeling exhausted, you can count on Glow Smoothies for a delicious nutrient-dense, hand-blended drink that will replenish your well-being.
We take care of ourselves on the outside, so why not do the same on the inside? Going to the gym is important, but so is eating healthy and taking care of yourself! Now, you can do that with some delicious smoothies!
Remember that life is all about balance, and it's okay to indulge a little! Just make sure to get back to your regular routine!
