Sometimes in January, we can get the January Blues. For some it's just the fact of getting back into the rat race, for others it can be the fact that the New Year always signifies reflection and what needs changing or possibly going harder at. Reflecting back I need to put my mind, body & health at the forefront this year. I enjoy a good detox and for a week I'm going to do a detox in a box with Champneys but it's not only the outside of my body getting treated. My health will also be getting benefits from that superfood - Seaweed.
Detox in a BoxI'm in desperate need of a detox - my body needs the boost. Since over a week ago I've been unwell, had a nasty cold and it's made it's way onto my chest for a hearty & irritating cough. I'm hoping this is going to help me be refreshed, and reinvigorated by harnessing the richness of the sea with the new Champneys Detox Range.

Eat Clean, Eat SeaweedSeaweed has been at the top of the superfood table and while most of us know of the skin benefits but what's the health benefits, well some of them include :
‣ Blood Purifying
‣ High in Calcium
‣ Contain Anti-oxidants
‣ Boost Weight loss
During my detox I added seaweed to my clean eating meals. Kombu seaweed. Kombu seaweed is a smooth tasting, umami rich brown seaweed. Umami – meaning “delicious”, is the fifth taste bud (alongside sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness) It's a deep-water kelp (the brown seaweed you normally see along the seashore) that's a smooth flavour enhancer, good for stews, soups, beans, tomatoes and mushrooms. I've read that Kombu seaweed may just be the most versatile. How did I use this ocean-veg in my meals.
