Three tips from clean living experts Kris Carr, Kimberly Synder, Zoe Sakoutis and Erica Huss Jones

6 Nov

These ladies all are experts in clean living and glowing from within.

While each has her own take on living a healthy, clean life, they also share some basic tenant of how to care for your body with food.

  1. Drink hot water with lemon in the morning. The warm water helps with digestion and lemon helps get things moving.  Add cayenne for an extra boost.
  2. Green juices are where it’s at. Juicing is amazing and green juices are that much better.  Fruit juices pack in natural sugar so you don’t want to overdo it and create an imbalance with too much fruit.
  3. Eat fruit alone.  Apparently it stimulates our bodies in ways that complicates digestion with other foods.

Basic green juice:

—> some kale+some spinach+an apple+half a lemon+ginger root (~ 1 inch)+ cucumber= perfection
