It’s that time of the year again- time to focus on my school work, and get back on board the health train. I’m not going to lie, the lack of photos of my food was due to the ridiculous amount of fun I was having between tortilla chips and caesars- that fun ride has come to an end- for 12 days at least.
I’m starting the Wild Rose Herbal Detox, totally safe, and ridiculously easy (for a detox). I’ve been recommended this one by my doctor before, and I know it really helps me feel back on top of my game, instead of two steps behind as I do right now.
So what’s the deal? Basically you take 4 supplements, twice a day with breakfast and supper, and you can’t eat tropical fruit (bananas, pineapple, mango, etc), flour products (breads, cakes, crackers), fermented products (soy, vinegar, wine, beer, black tea, miso), sugar (or dried fruit aka sugar bombs), peanuts (hosts to yeast and molds), and coffee becomes limited to two cups a day (black- pray for me on this one). You’re basically eating a diet created mainly of alkaline foods.
I don’t know if you’ve seen the research done on the link between alkaline foods and cancer, but you can check it out here. Apparently cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment- kind of cool.
So there you have it friends- prepare yourself for 12 days of stellar blogging from me as I cut joys such as chocolate chips and tortilla chips out of my life- I’m drinking tea right now instead of coffee, I’ve already changed.
Have you ever done a detox? Been interested in doing one? Which one?
