Spring Cleaning for Your Body at Whole Foods Market

Spring is a great season to clean out your closet and your body.  Recently, in a quest to rid my body of allergens and to shed a few pounds, I eliminated dairy, refined sugar and flour products and alcohol, and opted for a diet full of steamed and raw vegetables (broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, cabbage, radishes, kale and lettuce), fruit (blueberries, green apple, cantaloupe), salmon, whole grains (quinoa) and a detoxifying herbal tea.

Quickly, I saw a difference in how I felt. Now that I'm more aware of  how certain foods affect me, I will continue to modify my diet and bid adieu to my fave frenemy foods like chips, cupcakes, mac and cheese and fries.

Finding a detox diet tailored to fit your needs, however, is easy thanks to all the options available at Whole Foods Market.  One way to  kickstart your cleanse is with the 365 Everyday Value 7 Day Quick Cleanse, a simple 3-step plan that features a quick liver cleanse, gentle and effective acacia fiber and a non-stimulant herbal blend to help flush toxins.

Here are more of Everything She Wants' favorite healthy treats found at Whole Foods:

The delicious Amazing Grass Green Superfood Whole Food Energy Bar ($3) is made with raw ingredients and no sugar added.  Available in several flavors including Original, Berry and Chocolate Peanut.

For a refreshing pick-me-up on the go, CocoHydro Coconut Water Electrolytes ($24 for 30 servings) is a good source of non-synthesized electrolytes and a sustainable alternative to bottled coconut water. Available in Original, Pomegranate-Raspberry, Pineapple and Lemon-Lime.

Who says chocolate can't be healthy?  CocoaWell Organic Dark Chocolate Supplement Bars ($3) features 70 percent cacao and is fortified by functional ingredients with an emphasis on flavanols, resveratrol, energy and omega-3.  Varieties include Omega 3, Energy, Longevity and Cocoa Science.
