Detox is good, but isn’t prevention better (smarter)?
We have a great Detox Program that we use (and promote)… but when we really started thinking about the damage being done to our health with the toxic brew in our environment and in our food, it just made sense to spend some time talking about PREVENTION.
So get out your trash can.
We need to clean out your kitchen cabinets, your pantry and your refrigerator. Get rid of the junk food. If you don’t want to throw it out, drop it off at a shelter or donate to a food pantry.
Here’s an important fact… if it’s not in your house, you won’t eat it. If you think you’re going to buy a bag of potato chips and “the kids will eat it”, shame on you. Your kids and husband need healthy food, too.
You know what you need to do, now just do it.
Get your pen ready
You’ve heard that the “Pen is more powerful than the sword”. When it comes to eating healthy, that can be VERY true. Why? Make a menu and shopping list the most important part of your eating program. There isn’t anything more frustrating that going to the store and standing in the aisle “READING LABELS”. Yes, knowing what is in your purchase is important, but why not do all of that research and preparation at your desk in the comfort of your own home while sipping a nice cup of herbal tea? You will be shocked at how easy it gets once you really focus on what brands work for you and the time you save knowing what you are going to fix for dinner on Thursday night!
Again, making a menu and shopping list saves time and improves health… sounds like a win-win. (Should it be mentioned that you can also save money?)
- Make a menu.
- Make a shopping list.
- Buy fresh when possible.
- Buy organic, especially with celery, carrots, spinach and lettuce. Then, the next ones to target are strawberries, raspberries, peaches and apples. Stores are finally getting reasonable with some of their organic choices and pricing.
- Shop the perimeter of the store.
For those fresh vegetables and fruits, use Basic H2 as the perfect vegetable wash. Fill the sink with water, put in a few drops of Basic H2, then wash your produce. It’s non-toxic and it’s so much cheaper than those other products.
