Yes, we’re 6 days away from BlogHer! Anyone else exercising and filling up on fruit & veggies instead of junk so they can fit into their LBD? Since it is very important to me to show up at BlogHer “muffintopLESS”, I enlisted the help of a “Certified Holistic Health Counselor” here in Dayton — her name is Robin Gentry McGee, owner of Just Great Foods — and I just LOVE her. Here we are at a recent gathering at The Gypsy Warehouse.
We were actually friends many years ago but lost touch somehow. You’ll start seeing and hearing more about her if you hang out with me, because I am going to get her hooked up on all things social media!
For this first week working with Robin, I am on a CLEANSE / anti-inflamatory. Here are the details…oh and I am buying everything organic as much as possible! I have to stay away from night-shades and high-sugar fruits.
BREAKFAST — GREEN DRINK (use blender)
Garden of Life Perfect Food, Super Green Formula
Peaceful Planet, Supreme Meal (quinoa, millet, amaranth)
blueberries or strawberries
LUNCH — SALAD
dark leafy greens
any other veggies that don’t fall into the night-shade category (such as eggplant, tomato, peppers)
(add organic roast turkey if needed)
HOME-MADE DRESSING (make in food processor)
raw organic apple cider
fresh herbs (I use basil and rosemary from my garden)
pine nuts or garbanzo beans if you want a thickener
almond milk (if you need to thin it)
