Wow!? Who am I!? It’s been sooooo Hard for me to get up before starting this detox and here I am bouncing out of bed before my alarm. No blurry eyed creep to the kitchen to fire up my tea cup and I’m diving into paint projects before I wake the boys up from school!?!?! What in the heck!?!
I had no idea sleeping soundly would be such an amazing benefit to this 21 days and honestly might make even my worst food day worth it!! As a mom we never expect to get a good nights sleep because even if the kids don’t wake us up we still listen for every noise, whisper, thud, and breath. But I am KNOCKED OUT at night and ready to wake up when or before my alarm goes off. There is so much beauty in waking up refreshed I had no clue what I was missing!!!
Here’s the Skinny on Day 17:
Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!
Take Supplements (Optimize & Revitalize)
Wait 30 Minutes
Breakfast – 3 cups of fresh fruit (I blended a cup of mango into my Shako)
Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)
Take Supplements again
Wait 30 min
Lunch – called for Morracan Carrot Salad with 3 cups of greens (not pictured – still steaming) and it just wasn’t in me to make it so I roasted some asparagus and steamed the carrots it called for and called it good. I’m usually great at meal prep but this final leg of the cleanse I’m not super excited about it.
Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)
Take your power greens
Wait 30 minutes
Optional Snack – I used my oil allowance from lunch to mix up this beauty. 1 Tbsp of coconut oil and 1 Tbsp of Shako vegan chocolate then 5 mins in the freezer and this was worth it!!!
Wait 2 hours
Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)
Wait 30 min
Dinner – again. Food fail because I just wasn’t into what was called for so I made a 1/2 sweet potato with mixed veggies (zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, and asparagus)
I think what’s awesome about this plan is how easily you just revert to fruits or veggies with no desire to cheat. I could have easily eaten the steak the kids were eating but other than it smelling good I had no desire to eat it.
If you’ve tried everything else like me or maybe you just want to feel more energy we should be talking about this! I have a wave of babes starting Monday right after Thanksgiving! We are doing this during the hardest time of the year and won’t even be sweating any New Years resolutions!!
