So I’d be missing a sweet part of life if I rejected these treats. Now, I say all that to say I’m feeling a bit sluggish from all the memories I’ve partaken in over the month of December. Blaaaa.
It’s time to clean house and rid myself of the toxin that have built up in my intestines. Fancy.
Cleansing is controversial and can be dangerous. For me, I found the 7-day brown rice cleanse to be very good. I’ve done it a few times fully and a number of times I’ve gone on it for 4-5 days.
WHY I’M DOING IT:
1. To Boost my immune system – don’t have time to get sick
2. To Clear the fog and cobwebs from my brain and get better brain focus
3. To Press the reset button on what my body is craving. Then making good food choices is much easier.
So here are the details of the 7-DAY BROWN RICE CLEANS. My hubby will be joining me this time 🙂 and my kids will do a modified version. They will drink one glass of veggie juice a day a long with a serving of brown rice and steamed veggies. I don’t care if they like it… it’s only a few days and we have to break the habit of eating candy and treats everyday!
First thing in the morning, drink 2 fresh squeezed lemons, 1 tbsp maple syrup and 8 oz of pure water.
Breakfast green energy drink: juice 6 carrots, 1 beet, 8 spinach leaves, 1/4 cup fresh parsley
Mid-Morning drink a cup of cleansing & purifying tea or burdock tea
Lunch have a veggie juice like Super V-7: 2 carrots, 2 tomatoes, handful of spinach leaves and parsley, 2 celery ribs, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 green bell pepper, add 1 Tbsp of green super food
Mid-Afternoon glass of carrot juice
Dinner cooked brown rice and steamed vegetables, sprinkled with sea veggies, add 1 Tbsp of flax or olive oil and 1 Tbsp of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
Before bed cup of herbal tea like peppermint, spearmint, or chamomile
have 2-3 glasses of mixed veggie juice throughout the day. Don’t eat any solid foods during the day. Have brown rice and steamed veggies as an early dinner.
