Challenges

     Why even THINK of detoxing from sugar???  It’s something that makes us all feel happy, eases loneliness, and helps connect the dots when nothing else does.  Then why? For those of us who’s health is peachy keen, then look no further.  Others of us know that we cannot live on sugar alone and that too much of it makes us sick and fat, not to mention, run down, and the couch potato type.  When we put sugar in it’s rightful place, then there’s plenty of room for healing nutrients to flood our tired, worn out bodies.  We want to be rightly related to sugar, not in an addictive “precious-wide eyed precious” fashion as Smeegle.
     The BEST place to get sugar is from whole foods. The recipes I will give you for the next 10 days will be from whole foods only.  So get out your blenders: high speed or 120rpm, your steamers, your woks, your crockpots, your chopping knives http://amzn.to/2qJl8j3 and yes, even your microwaves and if you have an instant pot, http://amzn.to/2r6QvFf even better. If you can buy items already cut up, then your job is a bit easier…although it’s not hard…just using different muscles.
     If you have been used to lots of sugar then go for the higher amounts of fruits in the recipes.  If you have been using lots of bread and sodas, then start at Level A.  You are more interested in changing a habit than in loosing weight at this point.  Once you have better habits established then you can focus on the weight loss.  The whole point of this is better health and changing habits.
     So challenge yourself so that you will not go through major headaches, but go to your next level of health.  You choose.  If you need help, I can schedule a free 30 minute consult with you, which will include text follow up afterwards. Please message me with any questions you may have.
     Front load your day with the best food you can find, excluding the usual sugary snacks and drinks.  Load your fridge with good proteins and cook ahead of time so that you are ready to serve yourself so that you can grab healthy!
