The weekend flew by so fast one minute I was sleeping or trying to and the next thing it’s morning, how crushed I am right now.
Started back on my ritual of drinking a half teacup of Saffron tea, no sugar no milk as some suggested. First thing at Mornings and last thing at Nights. How ever will I keep up?
Wish me luck !
For this week I am going to try my very first diet, a high protein low carb diet. With an hour a day of high intensity cardio, and (15) minutes stretching with that same amount to cool down. I have switched vitamins based on my Dr.’s advice ; also prepared to drink 2 glasses of heart healthy soya milk daily. (I can feel my stomach churning already just at the sound of it all). I’ll also be posting daily randomly when work permits.
Broccoli – If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like broccoli, you should try it out once again! It’s full of antioxidants that can cleanse your body. It’s also high in enzymes that help to get your digestive system running efficiently. Raw broccoli is best because it has a high level of nutrients inside of it. chicken breast.
Lemons – These are great in drinks and recipes, but they are also packed full of vitamins and antioxidants. These protect the liver and they get rid of chemicals inside of the body. Consuming lemons on a regular basis can improve health.
Beets – These can be incorporated into a lot of different recipes or they can be eaten raw. They are full of betaine and pectin, which help protect the liver and the digestive system. These can cleanse the body so you have fewer toxins. FYI a favorite side dish, I simply love these, eaten half raw.
Grapefruit – This fruit helps cleanse the digestive system and it can prevent kidney stones from developing. It’s also low in natural sugars and calories, so it’s great for dieting.
Avocados – Do you love avocados so much you would put slices of them on just about any food you eat? There’s no reason to feel guilty about doing this, especially because this is such a great food for you to eat. Avocados are packed full of antioxidants, including glutathione. This is used to detox the body by transporting harmful toxins right out of it. By reducing the chemicals and toxins in your body you will be healthier and feel better.
Lemon Water (Photo credit: ex.libris)
Recently I had a thought that adding a bunch of citrus to plain tap water could somehow balance out my insides function, well so said so done. It is not only good for you, the taste is amazing as well, better even when compared to the brands out there. Do it your self ….that way you know what’s going into it, yes!
Get a glass jug solely for presentations sake and simply because it looks appealing , with plain tap water or better yet boiled water-cooled, add to that
3 lemon slices
2 lime slices
8 Cucumber slices ( skin and seeds )
3 Green apple slices
couple sprigs of mint leaves
Chill for an hour then drink instead of plain water and watch the magic happen.
BE THE BALL!!
