It’s time to get started! Starting tomorrow June 11 the Food Challenge begins, lasting 21 days. Join me by commenting or emailing us.
For 21 Days we will be eliminating the following items from our daily diet. It’s that easy. No measuring, calorie counting, following specific meals we are simply going to eliminate items that will help our daily health.
- Cake or cake like items /example donuts
- White Bread
- Ice cream
- Soda/Pop/Coke (whatever you call it) even diet
- Fast Food
The above items are what we are eliminating. I love doing this because it gives me a cleanse and a great boost of energy. It also allows me to try new things.
Join in today to have accountability and ideas for substitutions and recipes.
I LOVE these Protein Balls, they are my go to breakfast. I make them on Sunday and have them all week. They store easily and are packed with great nutrients and protein to keep you fuller longer. Try them out!
- 1 cup Dry Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
- 1/2 cup Ground Flaxseed
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1/3 cup Honey
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix it all together and put in the fridge for 45 minutes. (If it’s in longer no big deal) Now roll into ball shapes and store in the fridge. **Tip before you roll the balls spray your hands with non stick spray to keep from sticking to your hands**
I have the biggest sweet tooth and I have seen so many people making ice cream out of bananas. I had to try it. Here is what I did.
Freeze 4-5 Bananas (Tip peel bananas before you freeze them)
After they are frozen, cut them into slices and place them in the food processor
Add cinnamon & vanilla to taste
Blend, longer than you think, it will start to get flaky but don’t give up just keep going it will become an ice cream texture before you know it.
Put it in a bowl and keep in the freezer, you can fold in anything you want such as strawberries, chocolate chips or even add in peanut butter in the blending process. Be creative.
It is so yummy, I was impressed that it felt like ice cream. It is so refreshing and bright, I will have this in my freeze all summer for sure.
I try to make a pitcher of “Detox Water” each weekend. I normally drink it pretty fast but it is super easy to make.
Grab a pitcher, fill it halfway with water
1 Cucumber sliced (Do not peel get those nutrients!)
1 Lemon sliced
6-10 Mint Leaves
Fill the pitcher the rest of the way and place it in the fridge. Let it sit for a couple hours and drink up!
I love it, you can add more of anything for a different taste. It takes just a few minutes and really tastes great. Here is why I drink it…
