Photos by Ellie ShorttFor many, overindulgence is a common theme at this time of year. With a seemingly endless supply of sweet treats, rich roasts, and festive drinks, it’s hard to say “no”, which often leads to “oh-no,” as you crank up the calories and put a strain on your liver. As a result, many New Year’s resolutions often include some sort of healthy diet plan, and luckily for Victorians, there’s a number of options to help you restore your body to a less saturated state. Café Bliss:Café Bliss offers an assortment of raw and health-food selections that will give your body a much-needed boost. Kick into high gear with their Deep Green Vitality Salad containing kale, spinach, seaweed, Asian pear, walnuts, veggies and sprouts, tossed in creamy spirulina dressing. Or go for the Double Detox Super Shot containing 1 oz of wheatgrass, cranberry juice, lemon and 1 oz of E3 live (100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae blue-green algae, which has a number of boosting effects including restoration of overall bodily balance and health).556 Pandora Ave, Victoria BC.
