90 Detox Day 7
So I’ve been on this 90 day detox with my husband Richard and at first it was super hard. I can only imagine how much more committed you will need to be if you’re not already a vegetarian or living a healthy lifestyle.
I’m feeling effects of clear sinuses my abs are getting ripped which is awesome riches feeling stronger and we’re both sleeping well.
We are officially gluten-free, dairy free, caffeine free, meat free and eating no refined sugar or vegetable oils (almost all are GMO). We’ve given up coffee and been drinking the heck out of herbal tea. This morning we decided to drink half caf blend coffee because it sounded good. We have a friend and yoga student, Claire, who created this ‘Beneficial Brew’ of coffee and healing spices that alleviate joint pain, like tamarind and cardamom and clove. After making the French press and debating over boiling water in the microwave vs stovetop we made our coffee. We added the coconut milk creamer. It smelled great! We drank a few swallows and didn’t even want it. Ended up pouring it out and making detox tea. It’s amazing how quickly the body responds to what is good for it.
We’ve been drinking green smoothies almost daily, as well as the diet.
Blueberry Raspberry Kale ~green smoothie recipe:
Two handfuls of frozen organic blueberries and raspberries
