Week 1

Week One: Cleanse and Detox

We are all familiar with feeling below par, especially after we’ve been overdoing it; eating too much, drinking too much, working too much, the list goes on. Our bodies and minds can become ‘clogged up’.

When this happens, we can benefit from refreshing and cleansing ourselves to restore our balance.

If you do one thing this week...

Try our simple Clean Green Smoothie recipe to help boost skin health through a natural, flavoursome blend, boasting the power of green plants.

Discover The Art of Cleansing

An occasional gentle, natural detoxification of the body is a good way to help keep the whole system in balance, especially after times of excess.

It can help you feel clear-minded and relaxed, sleep more soundly and feel more refreshed when you wake.

Find out more about toxins and how they accumulate and learn the art of cleansing the Pukka way.

Clean Green Smoothie Recipe

The power of clean, green plants such as spinach, mint and avocado can’t be underestimated – eating these and other green ingredients is a powerful and easy way to help us cleanse and detox without the need for faddy diets.

Digestion is at the centre of our health. When our digestive fire is balanced, not only do we have a healthy glow, we feel more positive - bringing confidence and optimism.

A beautiful way to love yourself is to give your body what it really needs.

 A healthy digestive system helps to ensure the nourishment from our food is absorbed in the right way. Ayurveda, India's ancient health system, can help us to understand our individual 'digestive fire'.

The second volume of The Digestible Guide will help you identify your type of 'digestive fire', and explore some herbs to nourish your digestion.

Mindful Manners

In our busy lives, it's easy to overlook the importance of how we eat. Try these seven small changes at mealtimes:

1.Before you eat, make sure you are calm
2.Don't eat whilst standing up or walking
3.Choose wholesome, fresh, colourful foods
4.Start each meal with something a little spicy to stimulate digestion
5.Chew your food properly to ensure digestive enzymes get to work in the mouth
6.Be aware of how digestion feels before and throughout each meal
7.Take time to relax after eating, even just 5 minutes

Week Three: Energise and Rejuvenate
