Happy Tuesday!! Hope you are having an amazing day.  I am sending love out to you.

Today I want to go over a couple of topics for the cleanse I am doing.  What I have experienced and some activities that will help get through the cleanse.

Let’s go with the ugly first.  🙂    Doing this cleanse, I of course, have to stop the caffeine.  If you have ever tried to get off of soda or coffee you know the withdrawal symptoms.  And that is what I got to experience yesterday.  I had a great morning but as the day went on the increase of aches and pains started up.  Extreme headache by the afternoon.  The solution for me was to take some Excedrin and a nap.   When I woke up I felt great.  Day one down.

Now let’s go with the good.  To keep your body moving and eliminating waste you want to stay hydrated.  I mentioned before I use an app to remind me to drink water.  I have been staying in the upper 90 percentile of my water intake.

Along with staying hydrated I have flax seeds and chia seeds in my morning shake.  I love having shakes in the morning.  They are quick and convenient.  How can you go wrong?  If you want to make sure you are getting your fiber to keep things moving please try this flax seed cocktail compliments of HCI.

Drink the flax seed cocktail on an empty stomach in the morning and night.  You will want to buy ground flax seed.  Add 1 full teaspoon to 8oz of water.  Drink quickly.  If you let it sit too long it will coagulate.  Follow with a second glass of water to move toxins through the body.

The next activity I want to offer to you is to use a bath brush to brush off the dead skin cells from the body and get your blood circulating.  You want to do this every morning.  Use a brush that has a long handle, non-synthetic, hard bristled brush.  You want to use strokes starting with your feet and brushing towards your heart.  After dry brushing jump in the shower and start your day.

Last item I want to share is a cleansing recipe.  Again, this is compliments of HCI.

Baked Carrot Oven Fries
One bunch of organic carrots, unpeeled, washed, trimmed
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
Sea Salt

This is the perfect side dish to satisfy that sweet tooth!
Heat over to 375. Chop the green leafy tops off the carrots. Line a baking
sheet with foil. Arrange carrots in a single layer on the baking sheet,
toss with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes or
until carrots are golden brown where they touch the pan.

I would love to hear any feed back you may have.  If you enjoy the recipe or not.
