All about: the little bird Alkalising & Nourishing Winter Wellness Pack




Years ago I first came across the Little Bird brand when I bought - far too many times - bags of their highly addictive macaroons from a little stand in my yoga teacher’s studio. I loved the fact that they were a delicious treat without many of the negatives usually involved with a little indulgence, and their creator, Megan May was truly inspiring.
Fast forward a few years and on a more-than-regular basis you’ll find me sitting in Megan’s newly opened Little Bird Unbakery at 1a Summer Street - the second in the stable after she opened the first in Kinglsland not too long ago. To say the latter was a runaway success is putting it mildly, and seats are at a premium at all times of the day. The extremely clever and rather fabulous Megan also developed a cleanse last spring that got major props from all those who embarked on it - no surprise there! - including myself, I was once again hooked.
For many years I stuck to a juice fast each and every Monday, and cleansing systems like this remind me why I should get back into it and start doing exactly that right now. It’s great to give your body a rest from putting so much work into digesting heavy winter foods, as well as a shot of high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to strengthen the immune system, increase energy and leave you with a clearer mind and cleaner insides. If you eat well and maintain a healthy body and mind most of the time then a one day clean out is all that’s needed, but it’s great that little bird have a five day option available for when you really need a full body re-set of sorts.
The new Alkalising & Nourishing Winter Wellness Pack consists of six drinks that are made up of a combo of juices, elixirs and smoothies, and an absolutely stellar salad. They are:
1. Morning Lemonade with Coconut Kefir – Alkalising
2. Detoxifying - Cold Pressed Green Juice with seasonal greens, lemon and ginger - Detoxifying
3. Antioxidant & Immunity Boosting Berries & Bee Pollen Drink - Potent Antioxidants
4. Cacao, Almond & Reishi Milk protein drink - Energising
5. Cold Pressed Beetroot Juice with carrot, apple lemon and ginger – Blood Cleansing
6.· Green Smoothie with coriander, manho, parsley and spirulina – Cleansing & Nourishing
What a lineup!
I particularly love that they provide you with a salad to wrap up your day - both on an emotional and physical level.  A light kale and greens salad with avocado, beetroot noodles, cleansing sea vegetables and fermented vegetables, it provides you with a good amount of fibre and nutrients to help keep things in the body moving and leaves you satisfied to sleep easy - as well as a feeling of getting a little ‘reward’ for lasting the day.  
This clever winter wellness package is designed to help you function at a high level while cleansing the body and revitalising your cells. The high levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals found in our drinks will strengthen the immune system, increase energy and leave you with a clearer mind and cleaner insides. How great is that?
And while the little bird team suggest there is enough nutrition in our pack that you should be left satisfied (when we are hungry we are often hungry for nutrients rather than simply calories), it is not an exercise in deprivation so if you are feeling ravenous at any point and have finished all your drinks they suggest you eat some whole raw vegetables and fruits - with an emphasis on the vegetables or low sugar fruits like green apples, kiwi or berries.
So there you go - if you want to order one all of your own visit the little bird website here.
