Detoxify Your Life – Week 1 – Detoxify Your Food
If you received my newsletter on January 1st, there was a glaring typo in the title! I copied and pasted from a uniform email and “gimmicks” was spelled incorrectly. My apologies!!! Ok, onward!
The 31 Days To Detoxify Your Life challenge starts today!
Are you as excited as I am? To find out more about this challenge you can see my announcement post HERE!
Week 1 is all about food.
Although the concepts of removing toxins from our food is easy to grasp, it is hard for most people to incorporate into their every day lives.
We chose to focus on food the first week because this tends to be the hardest change to make. When you don’t approach food changes mindfully they can seem overwhelming, time consuming, frustrating and overall more difficult. If you are used to buying pre-packaged meals, fast food, and do very little cooking from scratch this will be a big change. People who eat a lot of processed food may feel tired, achy and have a detoxification reaction removing those foods from their diet. This is why, on week 1, we focus on food. It can be, by far, the hardest and most intensive change to make. It is also the most beneficial.
This week we are focusing on eating delicious, real whole foods that are easy to make, and so good you will forget that you are even doing a “detox”. Our focus isn’t to make you eat salads and smoothies every day for a month, but to give you real healthy foods your whole family can enjoy. We even included recipes you will enjoy on Superbowl Sunday! We are removing processed foods and adding in highly nutritious foods that will feed your body with the nutrients it needs for a gentle natural detox that your body knows how to handle.
We discuss the impact of pesticides and GMO’s in our diet, and how to handle avoiding these and what to eat instead.
If you have been eating real food for a while, you probably won’t feel much different this first week. If you are new to eating real foods, for the first three days you might experience headaches, fatigue, and upset stomach while your body regulates and adapts to a real food meal plan.
Are you ready for this week? Come join us and make the commitment to detoxify your life safely, naturally, and without harmful side effects. Make a real change in your life and take this step to better health and wellness.

Week 1 Giveaway! Real Food Goodies!
The Prepworks Lettuce Keeper is a wonderful way to keep fruits and vegitables fresher longer. In Progressive International’s lettuce keeper, fruit, lettuce, and vegetables stay fresher longer for up to 2 weeks. The special design lets you wash and store all in one since the container doubles as a colander. A water reservoir in the base keeps produce moist, and adjustable venting regulates air circulation and moisture. Andrea from Homemade for Elle is sponsoring this great prize.
