Detox Vanilla Detox Smoothie
Love entering the New Year with a pep in my step. But, when I look down after holiday meals, I always need a distressing, deflating detox for that 40-something belly of mine.
The detox cleanse that my doctor recommends most to her patients is the Orenda- CleanBurnShape. Yes, I am on the 3rd day and it is definitely working. I’m not feeling hungry at all or losing my mind with thoughts of cravings of a sugary doughnut. Actually, I’m feeling superb and on top of my running-yoga game. The reason you don’t feel hungry is because you are allowed to eat nine servings of fruits and vegetable a day and 1-2 legumes or beans per day. By deploying these healthy eating habits into my diet, I am feeling more satisfied with the added fiber. So, say YES, to more fiber, not the old folks Metamucil in this case! We will save that recommendation for a another day. 😉
Everyone has different goals. My goals are to reduce the belly bloating and increase my energy levels …and of course, not go crazy and want to strangle someone at any given moment.
Our bodies build up toxins through the food we eat, water we drink and the air we breathe. Let’s face it we have more pollution and junky food everywhere these days. The goal is to reset the body back to its healthy nutritional state which increases its ability to ward off pesky toxins. We excrete the toxins with using the toilet and sweat it off during a work out.
How Detoxification Works…
The key components of the body play a critical role in the elimination of wastes – circulatory, digestive and lymph. The circulatory system pumps blood throughout the body, delivering oxygen to and carrying waste away from cells. The digestive systems processes the food we eat and separating nutrients from waste and eliminating anything the body does not need. The lymphatic system collects intracellular fluid from throughout the body and transport it to the lymph nodes where anything harmful can be removed.
What Other Activities Help…
I like to run and do yoga. I try to walk and run at level 7.0 for 10 minute intervals then, finish with at least a 45-minute meditation then a yoga asana sequence. I am a yoga teacher at the a local coporate headquarters in Chicago so that part is easy at least.
So, I admit I like the Vanilla Shape Nutritional Shake with very cold Almond Milk. The shake mixture is creamy and not chalky with a little grit. Some powder residue goes away if you shake or stir it very well for longer than 30 seconds. You don’t microwave single thing. You’ll get all the nutrients, protein, fiber and Omega 3s you need from the green Shape drink. So, I’ve got you! Be happy. Be healthy. Be helpful and tell your friends. Here’s my link to the effective 10-Day vanilla smoothie-based detox cleanse called Clean. Burn.Shape.
My tip of the week is to mix Clean right away in the morning with water and take the Burn pill. Make your Vanilla or Chocolate with very cold mixed 1:1 ratio of Almond Milk and Water. You can even add 1/2 avocado to the smoothie if you need to smooth out any sensitivity to grit.
I like to make a big pot of homemade lentil soup to start my cleanse of right. I typically eat this for dinner every night if I’m really busy with kids. It’s filling and very savory for sure!
Here’s my LENTIL soup recipe:
1/4 cup of olive oil or coconut oil
2 medium onions chopped
1 cup of chopped carrots
1 cup of chopped celery
1 package of lentils soaked overnight
1 qt vegetable broth
Seasonings including bay leaves, lemon pepper and fresh 8 basil leaves chopped and 8 stalks of oregano leaves
1tbs. minced garlic, salt
3 tbs. Worchestershire sauce and 3 tbs of Balsamic vinegar
1 package of frozen mixed vegetables
1) In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery; cook and stir until onion is tender. Stir in garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Balsamic vinegar, bay leaf, oregano, and basil; cook for 10 minutes.
2) Stir in lentils, and add 1 qt. vegetable broth and frozen mixed vegetables. Bring to a boil. Add water as needed. Reduce heat, and simmer for at least 1 hour. Cook longer until beans are soft to your taste. Garnish with your favorite herb.
