Divorce Detox Foods

divorce detoxing?

Do you need a divorce detox? Do you feel the need for a cleanse now that your marriage has ended? It is true that when a marriage ends, it is an opportunity to start over, new and fresh and clean. Nothing wrong with craving that after a divorce. Indeed, Divorce Saloon is all about starting over on this blog, hence our new photo on Twitter. (Please, if you are not already doing so, please join us on Twitter. We would love to have you as part of our group of twends.) We just added a new motto “brand new life, brand new me.” And yep, a part of that is a divorce detox, folks.

Detoxing is one of the ways to have  a brand new life and to be a brand new you. Eating eating healthier and cleaner is really one of the best post divorce resolutions you can give yourself. This is true whether you are just divorced or never even ever having married but since this is a divorce blog and we are trying to stay true to our niche audience, we will discuss this issue of clean eating in this context of divorce. (I have been lectured by our editor that everything has to be written in the “context” of divorce)

So detox foods. In the context of divorce – specifically your divorce detox. What should you be aiming to add to your diet? And what should you be aiming to take out?

Well, take out sugar and reduce salt.  These are toxic foods and need to go. This is true even for me btw.  Then add these 5 groups of things to your diet (and privately think about 5 bad things you are eating right now that you can replace these 5 healthy things with. These detox foods are really good for cleansing.)
