“Sweet” Detox Cleanse

“Sweet” Detox Cleanse

Ready for a new year? I know we sure are!

I’ve made a decision to return to the healthy lifestyle I chose when I became pregnant with my firstborn 6+ years ago. Whole foods, limited dairy, no processed foods or refined sugar, limited no alcohol, no caffeine (wean, wean, whine)…

When I’m pregnant or nursing, it’s easy, since it’s primarily for someone else. However, when life gets busy & time vanishes, it’s difficult to keep up with full, whole meals to feed five people.

Since I’m done nursing (Little Miss Hadley weaned a few weeks ago), I thought it was a great time to do a detox cleanse for my body. We have been SO busy. We’ve been eating poorly, making no choices, really, but simply eating anything we could get our hands on. As a result, I haven’t been able to lose any weight, and I’ve been holding on to this baby weight – from all three ‘babies’ – for much too long now. Time to nip that right in the bud. Perfect timing, really, since it’s also the start of a new year.

With the help from a fellow homeschooling Mama friend, we’re going to find our way to healthier eating again. Jodie Rogers is a Holistic Health Coach & owner of Ray Of Radiance. She has given me a few tips to start this new year right!

Day One included a warm lemon water first thing this morning. Jodie explained how powerful and wonderful lemon is. I believe my body is naturally craving it because I was all about drinking the juice straight from the lemon! I did warm some water in the kettle & drizzle some lemon in. Jodie stressed to use warm, not hot, water. We don’t want to kill any good properties of the lemon.

I’ll do my best to keep updating here on the blog as I partake in this new food journey.

Please feel free to comment & include any tips or suggestions you may have that work for you! Thanks, friends!

  1. what does the warm lemon water do for your body ?

    • Hi Laura! Lemons have detoxifying qualities…I copied this from Kimberly Snyder’s blog: Lemons are a powerful fruit that pack a kick. They are filled with flavor, while delivering an extra blast of vitamin C and enzymes to your diet. Lemon has been associated with boosting liver’s function and tissue regeneration, which is helpful while cleansing as the liver is our main detoxifying organ.

      I’m considering this one day cleanse in a few weeks.
