I woke up this morning feeling like smoothie for breakfast. I know, I finished my cleanse/detox less than two days ago, so you’d think 2-3+ smoothies/day during those two weeks would’ve changed that, but no. One thing that I discovered during my cleanse, is how little I actually eat of RAW foods. I always try to cook my veggies ‘al dente’ so there’s still plenty of nutrients in them, but it’s not the same as getting 100% raw foods in your body. Wanna know if there’s a difference between eating cooked calories and raw calories?
So for the last couple of weeks, Cam (my hub) and I have been doing a cleanse/detox – Brett Elliot’s Ultimate Herbal Detox to be precise. And believe it or not, it has actually been a really enjoyable experience! Don’t get me wrong, there were not-so-fun parts about it, like swallowing 20 herbal pills in the morning and 20 at night (yes, that’s 40 pills in one day)…but all said and done – it definitely did the job. I feel completely cleansed inside and out. Apart from loosing 5-6 lbs, (and the obvious things herbal cleanses do that I won’t mention here), my skin is glowing, my tummy feels much more at ease and overall my energy has increased.
