This is the third year in a row, that I have done a cleanse in January. I think it is very fitting to start the year out with cleaning out your colon along with your closet, don’t you? haha!
Two years ago I did “Three Weeks To Wellness” with Elle Erikson here in Charlotte. I must admit, it was fabulous. Elle is so bubbly and vivacious. I met her in Barnes & Noble, when I was searching for Kathy Freston’s book “The Quantum Wellness Cleanse”. Somehow we starting chatting and she told me she led a 21 day cleanse and it was starting that night. Elle invited me to come with her to Earth Fare and join the group cleanse which started that night with an Earthfare tour of the products needed for the cleanse. So I did! It was awesome! I met some really cool people in the group. I liked the cleanse so much I continued to eat that way til March. Then spring break happened and my healthy eating came to a screeching halt. Don’t’ get me wrong, I do try to eat healthy but somehow chips and french fries sneak back into my diet from time to time.
Last year, I dug out the Kathy Freston book I bought the night I met Elle and finally did her cleanse. It is a great program. I highly recommend it if you are self motivated. If you need a cheerleader in Charlotte, go to Elle.
Even if you aren’t doing a cleanse, this tea is good to have every now and then.
I also recommend Juice Plus as a supplement. As you can see, I order the chewables not the capsules. They taste like candy so I feel like I’m getting a treat! I also use E3 Live in my smoothies and juices thanks to Kelly Wearstler. Kris gives a list of supplements in her book, so check there to see what else is on the list.
If you want to take a break from your normal eating routine here are some options:
If you are in Charlotte check out Viva Raw, and Luna Living Kitchen for
fresh cold press juices. If you want to create your own cleanse but don’t own a juicer or don’t want to do the work, you can do so through Viva Raw and Luna’s. Luna’s fact page on cleansing is very helpful and can be found here.
Here’s Oliver all bundled in his coat with a hood, think he needs to join the cleanse?
Here’s to a healthy happy new year for all!
(For the record, i don’t sell any of these products nor have I gotten a kickback
for writing this post, I am also not suggesting you go vegan or juice all the time, but it’s always nice to take a break from your normal routine to reboot )
