Reset Your Body with an End-of-Summer Detox. 

As summertime comes to an end, you can detox to your fullest potential. Smoothies, acai bowls, salads, and healthy alternatives help you to maintain longevity and to feel better both inside and out. For vegetarians and vegans, you can never forget to get your protein found in tofu, beans, peas, hummus, quinoa, nuts, seed, falafel, tempeh, seitan, and other healthy toppings. I love finding new ways to make an old food new again. Juicing can also help your body to restart again and recharge, releasing any old toxins. Since we’re all humans and have enjoyed that a chocolate bar or a bag of chips here and there, let’s get juicing!

Roll out the dough, turn on the oven, and make yourself a guilt-free, hot vegan pretzel. 

Whether you’re going to a summer barbecue, a baseball game, or on a weekend getaway, you know you’re going to need a snack, which is why we’ve created a list of the six best vegan pretzel recipes on the internet. But we didn’t stop there, as we’ve also included a plethora of dipping options ranging from spicy mustard, vegan ranch, and a sweet glaze. So bite into a jalapeño, cheese, cinnamon, or garlic and herb pretzel, but whatever you do, don’t get yourself twisted.

Many people have mixed understanding of detox diets. People think they have to literally starve themselves, cut out the carbs, or only drink lemon water. The reality is the body is always removing toxins with a number of bodily systems. When you undertake a detox it doesn't have to be dramatic. It can range from an overall lifestyle change to simply giving the body a break from the exposures of environmental and dietary toxins.
