Weekend Revival: Balanced Food Chart

Body+Soul, June 2005

Choosing the right foods during these two days will help detoxify your body and keep you cool.

Throughout the weekend, drink plenty of water and herbal teas; each day aim for 8 to 12 glasses of water and as much herbal tea as you would like. Be sure to drink cool, not cold, water, since cold water dampens the digestive fire (agni) that is responsible for efficient digestion.

Choose
Cool, sweeter foods
Cool drinks
Peppermint tea
Fresh fruit juice and smoothies
Seasonal fruits with a high water content
Raw or lightly steamed vegetables
Light, brothy soups
Cool fruit and vegetable soups
Fresh herbs

Avoid
Hot, spicy foods
Excess alcohol
Heavy or fried foods
Meat
Dairy products
Salty foods
Sour foods
