First day: off to a great start

I woke up this morning feeling READY for the next 10 days. It’s funny how once I wrap my head around giving up some of the things I like to indulge in from time to time and instead focus on the great food and beverage choices I DO have, everything starts to fall into place.  Ten days is not such a long time yet it is just enough to feel the impact of making better choices, as well as learning how often I do cave in throughout the day(eat a cookie, a piece of candy on my co-worker’s desk, have that extra glass of wine, etc). So hopefully you will learn something about yourself as well as we embark on this journey together.

Here is the recipe for that yummy elixir that I spoke about yesterday. This is from a blog post that I wrote back in January, 2013 as some of us embarked on a new year’s cleansing start.

Excerpt from the original post:

“Golden Elixir” (great name): Boil up water, fill up your mug with hot water, add 1 Tblsp of fresh lemon juice, 1/8 tsp each of turmeric and ground ginger(you can always use fresh of course), a smidge of cayenne(or more if you like it spicy) and honey. I also added some truvia to make it a little sweeter. Drink a cup of this in the morning and at night. This is a powerful drink, loaded with anti-inflammatories and immune boosters, great for your liver and your adrenals. And I found it incredibly satisfying at the end of the day, when I often pour myself a glass of lovely red wine; this was a perfect substitute.

Enjoy.

Wishing you health and balance.
