Day 15 of Nat’s Detox

January 19th, 201512:08 am @


Whoo-Hoo!  We are over half way through Nat’s January Detox!  Day 15.

We are feeling great.  No more headaches since the colon hydrotherapy on Friday.

Now that you have reached this point you should be feeling the benefits of your commitment to detox.

Your energy levels should be good, your skin should be glowing and your eyes should be bright…and you should be feeling trim!

What we have noticed quite profoundly is the change of our habits.  We are looking forward to eating the fresh, clean and mostly vegetarian food, not drinking alcohol and being a lot more productive with our time each day.

For the next 13 days we all need to meditate on this experience and entrench these habits into our lifestyles so that we can continue to enjoy the rewards post detox when we return to the temptations of our regular lifestyle choices.

To give you some food inspiration for this week here is a very simple, quick and easy to make Thai vegetarian dish we created on the weekend.  It is delicious!

Tomorrow:  Nat’s Week 2 Photos!
