Shed That Winter Coat!

[ Detoxing on the go...ten things in my hand, per usu ]

How’s it cleansin’? I hope you’re all excited to shed the winter coat…

I certainly am.

First day recap:

Annie ( the owner of Suja Juice ), Samantha & Casey ( Suja’s PR team ), Weslie ( blogger @ Love Chugs ), Cody ( co-founder of People Water ) & I started a lil group text to document our 3-day detox experience. Between LMFAO at all the absurd text messages ( << when I didn’t check my phone there were 52 from this wild/hilarious group {!!} ) & an unhealthy overuse of Emojis, Annie ended up sharing some real swell information with us weirdos…

& I learned:

Ahem!

+ It’s not weird to NOT be hungry. Why? That happens to most people because you’re really hydrated & getting the nutrients it needs. Hydration is key.

+ The first juice ( ‘Glow’ ) is great for your tummers in the AM. The mint in the green drink soothes the stomach.

+ Drink the last juice three hours before bed.

+ No nuts. The little suckers don’t digest well.

+ If you’re hungry…then EAT! Fruits, greens, sweet potatoes, avocados, Dijon + apple cider vinegar ( for dressing ), broths, & soups. Stay away from animal proteins ( < in the DIY cleanse animal products are ok ). Nix dairy & grains too. Tons of green tea is encouraged.  Juicing is alkalizing. Don’t let certain foods screw that up.

Capisce?

Ok. Spill- if you’re cleansing too, what’s your experience been like so far? Tell, tell.

I hope you’re not late to the party. And if you promised yourself to detox for the NY, don’t be a Flaky McFlakerson & back out. Follow through with what you said you were going to do.

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Let’s face it, bigger veggies [ think eggplant, squash, radishes, etc. ] can be rather intimidating, especially to cook with. My girlfriend, Casey, requested that I post an easy recipe with a large, discouraging vegetable. Thanks to my step-mom I absolutely adore spaghetti squash.

Entirely nervous to undergo this recipe on my own, would be an understatement. Useful discovery? It was ridiculously easy. I promise you’ll be surprised how effortlessly the squash falls out, forming itself in to perfect shape of “spaghetti.” Best part: 12 carbs & 5 grams of protein per serving. Honestly, I could eat this every night.
