But if don't really feel energetic and you also have gain some pounds, now is the time to start a detoxifying cure that will shape your body and will remove the fatigue. For this cure to succeed remove from your menu meat, pasta, fried foods and sugar while you keep it.

You can consume the plants either raw or blended

Green wheat: you can grow it at home and it will be ready in no time. Put some wheat grains on a big plate and cover with water. Add new water once 3-4 days. The germs can be put in a blender and eaten, and the wheat grass will be used to prepare a juice. For a better taste, add some green apple juice. It contains a lot of vitamins and minerals and is rich in antioxidants. In addition, the chlorophyll stimulates the production of hemoglobin, that is a basic ingredient in blood purification. If you eat or drink wheat grass juice or eat green wheat daily, for at least three weeks while following a diet which also includes fruits and vegetables, you can lose about 7 to 9 pounds. Some other benefits of the green wheat are:

-powerful detoxifier for liver and colon

-reduces blood pressure

-stimulates optimal functioning of the thyroid gland

-treats anemia

Green barley: it has qualities similar to the wheat and is as easy to grow. It helps get rid of toxins and prevents premature aging. As with the wheat, both sprouted grains and barley grass are very healthy. Green barley is a champion when it comes to the calcium content and therefore is invaluable especially for women over 30, when bone density starts to decline. It's good if you suffer from anemia, weakened body after an illness or fatigue. In addition the green barley:

-lowers cholesterol

-helps the liver and bile

Nettles might be pinchy, but they're also healthy

Nettles: it is that plant that pinches you when you touch it, that you might have seen in your grandam's garden, but that you have never tried. If that's the case, than you don't know what you are missing! Itcontains potassium, iron, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins that strengthen the body. Add them to salads, smoothies, soups or eat them together with other green vegetables. In addition, drink a cup of nettle tea daily (one teaspoon herb to 200 ml of water).

Nettles are good for diabetics to help regulate blood sugar, and are helpful and if you suffer from allergies or asthma. It stimulates metabolism and it's used in many beauty products. It helps you lose weight or if you have acne: keep a cure for a month and all imperfections will be eliminated.

Start your mornings with a healthy and consistent smoothie that must have as many green ingredients as possible: avocado, a handful of fresh nettles, green patience, a few leaves of spinach, juice from two lime, two tablespoons of flax seed, water. This mix will banishes the hunger and the cravings for sweets. Another simple method of preparation is to boil the nettles until well softened, then put them in the blender with a little garlic and olive oil.

Algae: they are rich in nutrients (fiber, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins) and help to eliminate toxins from the body, especially if you are an active or a passive smoker. They are nourishing (for a small number of calories), having a revitalizing tonic effect and are helpful especially for vegetarians due to the content of vitamins of group B. They are often used as an ingredient in sushi but can be consumed in other ways. Dry algae must be soaked before you eat them. Once rehydrated, the easiest way to consume them is seasoned with a little olive oil and lemon juice, then mixed with iceberg lettuce and arugula. They can be added to soups or sauces. Choose the Nori ones as they are easy digestible, Kombu that will help you lose weight or Wakeme that work miracles on the female reproductive system.

Broccoli sprouts: their antioxidant powers are 50 times greater than a mature broccoli and they contain proteins, minerals, amino acids and vitamins. They have a regenerating effect on brain cells, improving memory and concentration, fighting cancer by blocking tumor emergence and evolution, detoxifying the liver and kidneys, lowering the cholesterol and also helping the endocrine system to function optimally. Eat them as they are, by adding them to salads. At the beginning, a tablespoon per day is enough but you can reach up to 3-4 tablespoons. Keep this treatment for a month and if you like it, make them a part of your daily menu.
