ginger-and-limeA new year is upon us and time to give consideration to restoring the body's equilibrium; not only by shedding those excessive kilojoules, but thinking seriously of one's "inner body".

Although there are countless detox diets available, the focus here is on GINGER AND LIME plus the exciting additive of Mango, that glorious summer fruit.

GINGER is a well-respected root that plays an important role in our diets counteracting the effects of pollutants that can harm cells, which may cause mutations, which in turn could lead to the formation of tumours.

Because of the heat within ginger, it encourages sweating, a mild form of detox. In itself A SIMPLE BREAKFAST TEA can be created by cleaning about 3 cm of fresh ginger, placing this in a saucepan to be covered with 2 cups of water. Add to this about 4 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Finally strain off the liquid and drink. One can even steam one's vegetables with diced ginger, giving a pleasant end result.

LIME JUICE is a watery fruit with nutrients like vitamin C and added to water is a pleasant morning drink. This also enhances digestion and reduces contamination of the blood, which leads to the formation of free radicals. If this sounds all too "medicinal" to your liking, the LIME and mango smoothie will be sheer heaven!!

The simple method below should be followed:
The ingredients include-
1 cup of low fat yogurt
3 mangos skinned and cut off the pip and chopped into chunks
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespons of fresh LIME juice
1 tray of ice cubes
Place all of the above in a blender and whirl until" Slushy"
