Healthy Eats | CNY Detox

| Written by Fatima Lokhandwala |

Give your body the much-needed break from heavy and oily foods, the decadent, sugary sweets and unhealthy snacks by trying out healthier food options, and yummy treats that'll keep you wanting for more!

Here are some words of advice before you whip that shopping cart around!

šŸ’§ Drink plenty of water! Just because you've been drinking sodas & colas does not mean you've been hydrating your body, in fact it's the opposite. Drink at least 8 - 10 glasses of water to replenish yourself and flush out those toxins!

šŸ„¦ Stock up on the fibre! Your digestion has probably been overactive and overloaded during CNY with all the heavy food, so give it a rest and have some green leafy vegetables to sweep your system clean.
