We are now into week 4- our last week of the spring cleaning/weeding/eliminating phase of our spring plan! And I want to share with you a new find in the supermarket- flaxmilk!! I am always on the lookout for healthy milk alternatives and so far I have not found any I really like. It is getting harder and harder to find unsweetened ones - and I have never been a fan of soymilk. But flaxmilk- by a company called Karma- is really good! Creamy- 8 g of plant protein per cup and 1200 mg of healthy omega-3. Look for it! The other thing that has helped me through these past weeks is sipping on bone broth when I get home - before dinner. Helps control the hunger and although I confess it does not exactly replace a glass of wine - it is good.
Many of you may be thinking - now what? If you have a copy of Mullin's book Gut Balance Revolution- and you have read ahead- you know that the next stage is to "replant" our gardens with healthy bacteria that will live happily in our guts and help to keep us well and balanced.
If you don't feel you have really stuck to this plan, have not lost weight and don't feel in general lighter and healthier- you might want to think about giving it another couple of weeks- and really really stick to it! Whatever you decide- give these next few days a solid effort- and more will follow as we start adding foods back next week!
