Smoothie Cubes

If this isn’t the best time-saving idea then I just don’t know what is!!!  Smoothie Cubes!!!!  How did I NOT think of this years ago!?  Anyway – now we have absolutely no excuse for not having a green drink each and every day.  No longer do we have to make them fresh – I mean really – who has time for that in the morning???  Not me for one!  Well now we can just whip up a nice big batch of my delicious Green Goddess  anytime – pour it into these cool square ice cube molds and pop in the freezer – WAA-LAA!!  DONE!!  Then each morning pop approximately 3 Smoothie Cubes in the blender with some H2O and that’s it.  You can also do the same for protein smoothies – just blend all the ingredients except the protein powder and add that just before drinking.  How’s that for a stress-free morning 🙂

GOING GREEN

 

green drinksI don’t love eating salads – there – I said it!  Nope – the washing, chopping and ugh – all that chewing – who has the time!  So when I realized that I could get all the nutritional benefits and more in one little 8 oz green drink…. I said sign me up!  Drinking as opposed to eating your greens infuses your body with tons of vitamins and minerals in the most absorbable form – it’s like getting the nutrition in several huge salads at once!  So bottoms up my friends and btw Kermit – It IS easy being green : )

The following are some of the super cool benefits of drinking “the juice”.  Cheers!

• crazy good energy

• glowing skin

• better digestion (helps you to “go”)

• cleansing and detoxifying

• weight loss (due to above benefits)

• anti-aging and hydrating

• increased mental clarity

• immune boosting

• anti-cancer

• makes you feel super healthy

• makes you feel sexier (increased libido through increased circulation)

Why Do We Need To Detox?

DETOXUnless we are living in a bubble, we are surrounded day in and day out by environmental toxins, both inside and outside our homes.  In addition, if we have slipped into poor eating and lifestyle habits, our toxic burden is further increased.  It is estimated that the average american ingests about a gallon of chemicals a year and that approximately 75% of weight issues are due, in part, to being overly toxic.  Toxins are stored in our fat cells and our bodies will hold onto that fat, as well as, water as a protective mechanism.  So not only do toxins make us sick –  they also make us fat!

 
So….Just how toxic are you anyway? Click here and find out…. 

 

I know what you are thinking…..”Detox…hmmm sounds like a good idea and I did score pretty high on that quiz you just made me take.  I have been really sluggish lately, my thinking has been fuzzier than ever and my digestion is not what it used to be.  My skin hasn’t been looking as clear or bright either and my eyes have puffy dark circles all of a sudden.  I can’t seem to concentrate on anything and my memory is totally shot.  Also – I’ve been getting these annoying headaches and my joints ache.  Worst of all, I can’t seem to lose weight for anything!  Damn I’m a hot mess!  I really DO need a good detox but….the idea of it makes me kind of nervous.  My friend went on one and she had to drink these really gross cleansing drinks and couldn’t eat real food for like a whole month!  She was in a really bad mood too and now nobody likes her anymore.  I don’t want to give up food and be in a really bad mood for a whole month and have no friends…. Ugh – this is sounding like a really bad idea.  I think I need some chocolate….and a nap”.

 

Well put your fears aside because DFH has come up with the answer to our detox prayers – Their 14 Day Detox – short, simple and sensational results in just 14 days!!!  Best of all….you can eat REAL FOOD!!!!  Yes there are detox shakes – but they are DELICIOUS!!!!  This detox is as pleasant as they get and as a result, you will actually enjoy it.  Check out the brochure and you’ll see what I mean.  This is a gentle effective detox that will leave you feeling clean, clear, lighter and more energetic and it won’t cost you 1 single friend either : )
