Week 1 of our Spring Cleaning is coming to an end and tomorrow we start week 2. How has it gone for you? Are you the kind of person who jumps in with both feet and sticks to all the rules from day 1? Or are you the kind who tries it out- gradually removing the sugar, alcohol, starchy carbs, processed foods - most dairy and all gluten? Adding in LOTS of water, low FODMAP foods, mainly vegetables, nuts, fish? Whatever category you fit into- let's all aim to move into Week 2 with real purpose! Make sure your fridge is stocked with all your gut friendly foods. For me- I confess to being less than perfect this past week! But this morning after my workout I had a vanilla whey shake with unsweetened coconut milk, 1 Tbs of chia seeds, 1 Tbs of ground cinnamon - and a small bowl of melon. Coffee- black- and water.
Feels great! And - here's a tip for a possible late afternoon "slump" - try sipping some organic broth! Even add some chopped spinach or kale to give it a bit more substance- it really helps!
I would love to hear from you - and happy cleaning!
