Top 10 Reasons to Detox

Top 10 Reasons to Detox

 In today’s natural environment, there are plenty of toxins floating around in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. We’re exposed to harmful enviromental factors that affect our mental and physical health daily. Our body’s have strong systems that work together to eliminate these toxins, but these toxins can still leave our cells damaged. Detoxing helps to repair these damaged cells and helps to reduce and control the amount of toxins that enter our body. Detoxing can be done through changing our diet to consume more plant-based foods, restricting the intake of food, or juicing. Each cleanse has different benefits, but here are a few amazing reasons why we should all be detoxing:

  1. Phyto-chemicals found in living fruits and vegetables fight free-radicals found in pollution, caffeine, alcohol, smoking, and other harmful pollutants in our environment.
  2. Our body requires a great amount of energy to digest common foods such as meat, dairy, and grains. Cleansing gives us a break from these processes to focus its energy elsewhere, such as repairing damaged cells.
  3. Our main detoxing organ, the liver, is constantly fed with harsh ingredients (caffeine, animal products) which puts it through a lot of work. Not having these in our system gives our liver a break and allows it to detox itself.
  4. Detoxing helps our digestive tract flow smoother and allows for more comfort in our daily lives.
  5. The living enzymes in juices provide optimal absorption of vitamins in minerals to the bloodstream. Your body receives almost 100% of your RDI (recommended daily intake) of most vitamins and minerals when cleansing.
  6. It reduces high sodium levels from processed foods which retains fluids causing bloating.
  7. It cuts cravings and reduces our appetite, helping us feel full with less food
  8. We rehydrate our body by naturally consuming more water through fruits and vegetables.
  9. It improves our mental health by increasing concentration levels throughout the day, and will allow for a better sleep.
  10. It’s a great way to reset your system and prepare for a healthier journey moving forward.

Mid Week Refuel with Savor's Power Balls & Energize Me! Salad

Mid Week Refuel with Savor's Power Balls & Energize Me! Salad

Wednesdays are always the toughest day to get through. You’ve made it through a good portion of the week, but it’s still not quite the weekend yet. You may find yourself running low on fuel and grabbing one more coffee, or a sugar-packed snack to get you through the day. In the Savor kitchen, we love to snack on our Power Balls if that mid week slump arrives and we need a healthy hit of energy.

Our Power Balls are packed full of nutrients to give you that mid-week boost. They contain nutrient-dense carbohydrates from the dried fruit, filling you up and giving that boost of energy. Dried fruit also contains high levels of dietary fibre, and potassium, which are beneficial for your heart health. These Power Balls are packed full of nuts and seeds, which contain healthy unsaturated fats. Don't let the word "fat" scare you; these unsaturated fats will keep you feeling full for longer, as well as benefit your heart health, transfer vitamins around the body, and aid in weight loss. Not only are they packed with delicious, nutritious ingredients, but these foods are left in their natural state and are completely uncooked. Leaving ingredients raw ensures the phytonutrients, such as antioxidants, are left unharmed and are in their optimal state for absorption.

Looking for something more than a snack to give you that boost? We also love our Energize Me! salad, full of nutrient-dense, energy-packed ingredients. This isn’t a traditional salad as you get hearty vegetables, fresh berries, and walnuts to keep you feeling full for longer. We guarantee you’ll feel satisfied after this delicious meal!

It’s easy to turn to that quick snack or coffee to give you that mid-day energy boost. We ensure you that choosing a whole food, plant-based option will give you even more energy, that will last much longer!

Looking forward to feeding you!
