Day #4 AdvoCare Cleanse & detoxing

on April 15, 2017

Regardless of whether you are FOR OR AGAINST vaccinations this documentary is a must see!  The Truth About Vaccines

UGGG…awakened by another headache?  I guess I shouldn’t complain because to be quite honest I expected it to be a lot worse.  I mean seriously the first one came and went so quickly, did I really think I was done? HaHa   I don’t believe this to be a “detox” issue, I believe it to be a hydration one.  Ya figure as much water as I drink during the day…then I go 6-8 hours without so my body starts screaming “drown me” lol~  Other than the slight headache…. Yes, I’m feeling mighty fine, I’ve got heaven on my mind (actually I woke up with… If you got chains, he’s a chain breaker…over and over AND over) 😀

We deal with pollutants invading our bodies on a daily basis.  We eat, live and breathe toxic substances, from the paint on our walls to cleaning supplies.  Everything from the air we breathe to the water we drink more than likely contains some sort of toxin.  And don’t even get me started on our food source!

Thankfully, our bodies are designed to process and expel these toxins but how much can it do on its own? We put so much junk into our bodies these days, some we do on purpose, some unawares, that even the healthiest bodies can be overwhelmed.

If left untreated, toxins can lead to any number of diseases, including cancer, allergies, immune disorders, hormonal imbalance and mental health, among others. This is why we need to regularly detox our bodies to maintain optimal health.  I’m not talking about those crazy fad detoxes where you drink tea for three days or eat nothing but cabbage (big eye roll).  I’m talking about for real detox through nutrition!!

Using essential oils to rid yourself of the harmful pollution that we’re forced to live with is one of the more safe and natural methods.

There are 3 ways essential oils can be incorporated into a detox protocol:

  1. Topical Application by making your own non-toxic health and beauty products
  2. Daily Aromatic Use
  3. Safe, CPTG Internal Use

Here are the best essential oils that can be used to help detoxify the body:

  1. Lemongrass
  2. Melaleuca
  3. Lemon
  4. Rosemary
  5. Clove
  6. Peppermint
  7. Myrrh

Some easy yet extremely effective ways you can start using essential oils to help flush toxins from your body include:

  1. Take a detox bath two to three times a week adding Epsom salts and essential oils
  2. Try oil pulling with essential oils three to four times a week
  3. Keep cleansing oils running in a diffuser

Essential oils are powerful! Handle them with care. Ensure you are only using the highest quality essential oils.

Today being our first day of Spring Break I decided to allow the little to sleep in (at least until 7am, yep she too is an early riser) I didn’t want to get started in the kitchen at the buttcrack of dawn but couldn’t wait to have something to eat.  I don’t normally have an all-fruit breakfast as I feel it’s too much “sugar” pounding the pancreas all at once.  Anytime the kids want “just fruit” they still eat cashews.  Are you aware that pairing a protein with your carbs allows for slower absorption of those “sugars” and will help to sustain you longer.  Plus I knew by the time I got the cantaloupe down she’d be up and I was right but WHAT E breakfast would I have?  My “go to” when I want to add fruit to breakfast is always oatmeal!  I use homemade almond milk (making it dairy-free) to cook the oats then add cinnamon and maybe a splash of homemade vanilla and/or dab of honey as sweetener (YES, I do use honey!)

What I ate today:
Fiber/Spark/Pro/Catalyst 16 oz
16 oz
E/Cantaloupe and oatmeal 16 oz
8 oz
FP/Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie
S/Egg Roll in a Bowl w/ half avocado 16 oz avocado eggroll
Spark 16 oz
FP/Hamburger patty (no bun) and cucumber slices 16 oz mushroom swiss(family had mushroom swiss and homemade fries)
E/Mango Berry Protein Smoothie (w/ spinach & almond milk) + OmegaPlex mango shake
16 oz
Herbal Cleanse pills & magnesium 8 oz

 

CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE
1 cup frozen strawberries
½ cup almond milk
½ cup water
1 Tbsp raw cacao
1 drop vanilla stevia
1 scoop chocolate protein (I omitted but my “gut-healing” protein was vanilla and with 7g fat would’ve put me into crossover territory)

**I thought the cup of strawberries would’ve made this smoothie an E however after deducting the fiber it dropped to FP (woohoo–that’s really where I like my snacks to be)

Egg roll in a bowl is an easy delicious FP meal but I really wanted some avocado so that pushed me into S territory ❤

Mango Berry Smoothie could’ve been FP with less mango (I use Dr. Axe Whey Protein which is FP with it’s 1g F and >2g C whoop whoop)
