How goes the holiday season? I am doing things a little backward this holiday season. I am starting a cleanse before Christmas, while most might consider it after. I want to feel amazing inside out. I want my cells to shine brighter than the star atop my Christmas tree. (cheezy! haha)
Today is DAY 2!! Wow, honestly anything after day 1 feels like a big accomplishment. It is not an easy thing to do… but if I can do it, you can do it!
This morning I woke up and right away got out my Vitamix to start rocking and rolling on a morning smoothie. I did my “classic” green shake. (Which I will share with you tomorrow, when I share a video of the recipe!)
I started with Cucumber, celery, parsley…
Added in spinach, ginger and lemon juice. In my old blender I used to cut off the skin off the ginger, but with the Vitamix, it is demolishes the skin into bits and I could never tell it was left on.
Then a banana and hit blend! What a refreshing way to start the day!
In my second shake of the day, I added in a pear….mmm,
Then after the gym, I needed sugar and high calories! I blended up a mainly fruit smoothie, with a bit of spinach..
I shared with Mike this time…

Still not sure that a plant based diet will save lives? If you have a bit of time. Please watch this documentary!
If you don’t have time to watch it now, definitely check it out when you can. I also watched another documentary today called “Food Matters”. More good stuff about how you really can heal disease through nutrition. I am a believer.
One of my weak moments today was holding the door open for a guy who had 2 Starbucks coffee’s in his hand. They were probably Peppermint Mocha Latte…In that moment, I was like, “ugh, I want a latte for me and a friend.” But I remember the “why’s”. and remembered “This too shall pass.”
Other than that, today I did some wedding stuff, went to the gym, finished a big voiceover project and took care of some business. Good day at our camp. Hope yours was great too!
