Just like spring cleaning your house… it’s time for us to spring clean our bodies.
Today starts a month-long detox of crap. It seems as though it has been a continuation of the holidays through February… how is that okay? And while the sun is shining a little longer and the birds are chirping a little louder, my body is screaming for help!
Okay, okay, so I’m not that bad, but I do feel bogged down by wheat and sugar and it feels a bit overwhelming.
I did a little bit of researching and have chose to do a basic healthy food cleanse to rid myself of those unhealthy addictions to wheat and sugar. I’ll still eat everything I like, but I plan to reduce my wheat cravings by cutting out bread and all of wheats yummy little products (and I’m also cutting out yeast and gluten). But first, starting today, I am cutting out sugar. Baby steps!!!
My day so far:
Breakfast = yummy smoothie filled with spinach, hemp seeds, old-fashioned oats, blueberries and a banana
Lunch = salad topped with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and pine nuts plus some broccoli florets dipped in hummus
Snack = an apple with 1 Tbsp. almond butter
And now here comes the true test. Can I get through a shift at Whole Foods Market smelling the yummy cookies all night??? We shall see…
But on a lighter note: I’m growing broccoli sprouts!!!
The other day Ryan and I ran to Home Depot to pick up some organic potting soil since I really want to start growing some food from our apartment. (There will be more to come when the Spring is officially here and I can show the amazing flowering box he built me for Christmas <3) Then we got home and I soaked the seeds for 6 hours. After soaking the seeds I set up the planting area in our living room (:
Oh hey Betty…
I love the book Ryan got me called Grow Great Grub! It has great tips and ideas. I can’t wait until I can plant more!
Fill your container 3/4 the way full of pre-moistened organic potting soil and evenly scatter the seeds. Top with a thin layer of soil, lightly water, and place in a warm area.
The plants don’t need sun until they sprout. The top of the fridge is always the warmest part in the apartment haha!
< Well, it’s been 4 days since I planted these suckers and they are already poking their little heads through!! Yay!! I’ll update more when my camera can actually capture the tiny little sprouties (yes I’m baby-talking about sprouts… deal). >
