What is detox?

Detoxification is the process of removing toxic substances from a person’s body. It’s an everyday process.  Minute by minute, hour by hour.  When our body is working well, this process goes on without a hitch.

These toxins we need to get rid of aren’t just the bad crap from our processed food, etc.  It’s also from the natural side product of metabolism.  Detox shouldn’t be a mysterious word.  Toxins shouldn’t be either.  It’s just what it is.

Now you can put in LESS toxins.  You can help your body do better with daily detox.

THE LIVER.  I like to call it the aquarium filter.  It does a big job.  More on that later.  Here’s the deal.  You’re body can deal with a lot of abuse.  You treat it well, you can push it more.  You eat more fruits and veggies, you can deal more with the less than optimal food, or lifestyle habits, extensive exercise, etc.

But if you don’t make some educated choices, that filter gets REAL SMELLY and the fish start floating.  Or you get sick.  Or you don’t sleep well.  Or you are always tired.  Or your performance is lower.  Or  you get a disease of some sort.

I’ll be putting together a class on detox.  How to make some changes so this becomes a way of life for you, without you really even thinking about it much.  (it’s all about the poohs!)  I can’t wait to show this to you.  But lets start HERE!

WATER WATER WATER.  Clean water.  Just plain water.  You can add lemon, lime, raspberries, etc.  First step in this lifestyle change is to ensure that you are drinking 8 glasses of water a day.

If you have that down … more fiber.  Next week I’ll send out fiber help.

Check out the smoothie recipes if you wanting to go a step further now.  The super green one is GREAT.

Spinach Muffins

My grandson calls these Incredible Hulk muffins. He loves them, he obviously doesn't know there's spinach in them! And they are only about 100 calories each!

Ingredients

  • 2 C. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 C. unsalted butter
  • 3/4 C. milk of choice
  • 1/2 C. honey (I use raw organic)
  • 1 large banana
  • 6 oz. baby spinach
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350. Either line 18 muffin pan with liners (makes 18 muffins) or spray with cooking spray.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Melt butter. Blend spinach, banana, honey, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter until pureed. I used my ninja and it worked great.
  4. Pour the puree into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined, don't overmix.
  5. Spoon into prepared muffin pans. Bake 18-22 minutes until firm but not browning.
  6. Cool and enjoy!
