Day four and going strong.  Email me or tweet me with your thoughts and suggestions – some of your favourite recipes!  We have a lot of days ahead of us, recipes shared that get posted…will get a detox package of teas from us! 🙂

 

INSPIRATION:

“There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – ALBERT EINSTEIN

Look at your day and everything around you as though it were a miracle.  Set that as your intention of the day as you start your morning with five minutes of quiet time and reflection.  Stretch your limbs.

OUT OF THE BOX:

Walk or drive home a different route today.  If you’re like most people, you walk or drive home the same way every singe day and become quite oblivious to the things around you.  Take a different route today and be aware of your surroundings.  The houses, the people, the trees.


MENU:


You guessed it.  Drink and drink and drink.  We truly don’t understand how much our bodies need hydration.  I have the coolest new tea toy to share with you next week – it will change your water forever!!

BREAKFAST
Hot water with lemon
Cottage cheese with fresh fruit

Formosa Silver Moon with a splash of skim milk – this tea is a rather full bodied black tea and my stomach is happier if I put a splash of milk into it

LUNCH
Whole wheat wrap with avocado and sliced vegetables.
Cut your vegetables into strips – peppers, cucumber, zucchini, tomatoes – pick your favourites.  Slice in some avocado.  Squeeze in a touch of lemon juice and hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.  Roll into a whole wheat tortilla wrap.

Rooibos Tropicana 

SNACK
Fruit smoothie – in  a blender combine your favourite fruits – add unsweetened apple or orange juice, 1tsp Matcha – blend well. 

DINNER
Soy cured Tuna – click for recipe.  Now this recipe is served with egg noodles, so replace the egg noodles with whole wheat noodles.  Remember, we are eating nothing WHITE!

Dung Ti Oolong – everyone who knows me, knows this is my absolute favourite tea in the world 🙂
