On Our Plate

Mindi and I have been feeling a little sluggish lately. We know we need to work out, and get in better shape. We decided to try doing a 3-day detox. We researched different detox regimines online, and felt that 3 day Juice cleanse was the best match for us. In short, you drink nothing but fruit juice for 3 days straight in order to help flush built up toxins from your body.



"The principle of fasting is simple. When the intake of food is temporarily stopped, many systems of the body are given a break from the hard work of digestion. The extra energy gives the body a chance to heal and restore itself, burning stored calories to rid stored toxic substances. During fasting, the liver and immune system are essentially freed to detoxify and heal other parts of the body. Many healers claim that fasting is a particularly useful therapy for the American lifestyle, of heavy diet, overeating, and constant exposure to food additives and chemicals. Some alternative practitioners have gone so far as to estimate that the average American is carrying 5-10 pounds of toxic substances in their bodies, for which fasting is the quickest and most effective means of removal." http://www.catherinewilbert.com/time-to-detox

This is what our kitchen counter looks like right now!


 Our fish, Bob was very curious about what was going on on top of our countertop!
 On a sidenote, Bob the Beta has got to be the coolest Beta fish that I have ever envountered. Most of them seem to just kindof sit there, but Bob comes when he is called, and swims around the side of the bowl closest to us, making it seem as if he wants love! It is pretty neat. :) We love you Bob!

  2. Fruity Pebbles count turn the milk kinda juicy, right? So they should totally count.

    But seriously, can you have broth and soups too or just juice?
