Before you even think about a cleanse, you need to get rid of any negative feelings you have around indulging over the festive season. It's important to realise it's okay to splurge and enjoy yourself with food. Embrace the food baby after Christmas lunch or boxing day, have a glass of champagne to bring in the New Year.
There really is no need to punish yourself with a rigidly strict diet and exercise routine. All you need to do is give your tummy a little extra love and feed it with the things that fuel you. Try following the below ideas for a simple one day mini cleanse to help your body detoxify and debloat.
RISE, SHINE AND LOVE YOUR GUT
A gentle start to give yourself a break from excesses. A cleanse doesn't mean starving yourself or only drinking green juices. It's all about refreshing the body by eating lighter amounts of clean foods which are rich in nutrients.
In the morning, I recommend a cup of warm water with my Love Your Gut powder. It's helpful to remember to stay hydrated during a cleanse day - one to two litres of water is what you need to feel good all day long.
Next, you'll want something gentle and balancing on the gut for breakfast. A gut blended smoothie or smoothie bowl with coconut milk or coconut water work well. Coconut supplies energy building medium chain fatty acids, micro-flora support and defence against parasites and pathogens.
Bananas are a good addition to your breakfast, as they are high in postassium, vitamin B6, immune-boosting vitamin C and also contain nutrients which moderate blood sugar levels. Add berries too and greens if you can!

For lunch, fish is a great source of macro and trace minerals. For something new, why not try scallops, which are high in protein, low in calories and taste delicious.

DINNER TO DITCH THE BLOAT
When it comes to dinner, on a cleanse, try and eat light and make it the smallest meal of the day. Enter, my vegetable soup in a jar - which is a delicious, nutritious way to fuel your body and reset the mind before bed.
Remember that a cleansing day isn't about deprivation. You should be able to love your food and make eating a joyful experience. Since you'll be consuming fewer calories on a cleansing day, it's a good idea to invest in good-quality organic, or at least chemical-free wherever possible.

Finish the day with a Golden Gut latte or a couple of Love Your Gut Capsules and get an early night!
You’ll feel amazing in the morning and ready to take on the New Year! A happy gut is a gift that keeps on giving all year long.
