|This machine kills pimples...kinda.|
First off, thank you so much to everyone who left comments with wonderful advice. I ordered Crunchy Betty's eBook Food on Your Face and am so excited to try out the recipes. I also ordered an allergy testing kit from Every Body Cleansing Studio. In addition I also ordered Cultured: Learn to Make Healthy Fermented Foods at Home from Renegade Health. I will let you know how it goes! Here's today's detox:
Pau d'arco tea
Lemon juice, water, MSM, spirulina, stevia and cayenne (blended in a bullet)
1 1/2 quarts cukes, celery, mixed dark greens, burdock root, green apple
1 1/4 quart watermelon/fennel/cuke/mint
1 cup almond milk with Sunwarrior vanilla protein powder, Shapeshifter, 3 Jewels
2 cups Sea Clear miso soup with crushed garlic
Apple juice with bentonite cay/psyllium husk powder
teaspoon coconut oil (Ojio brand...mmm)
15 minutes rebounding
I woke up this morning at 3:30 am but couldn't fall back asleep so I went to my office and answered emails from 4:30am-7am (I get a lot of emails). I was so wired I couldn't believe it. I did have a fantastic day yesterday which was probably the main source of my buzz but I was so surprised how alert I was. I had a lot going on today so the energy went way down hill at 3:30pm just as I was heading to 2 auditions. I didn't pack enough juice for the car ride so I got pretty testy and foggy. Note to self: you can never have too much juice when traveling around the city all afternoon.
My hunger level was not that bad today. I almost feel apathetic to food. I said *almost*. I had a weird craving for spirulina crunchies of all things but for the most part I feel really in control and very zen. The worst detox symptom I'm having is a heavily coated tongue. So gross. A tongue scraper has been helpful but it's still giving me really bad breath. Another symptom or possibly just my body being normal is my skin is super oily. I've gone through an oil blotting sheet every hour today. It's crazy. I read the oil is part of the detox. I hope the fast isn't just aggravating the one symptom I'm trying to have control of. Anyway, that's the news for now.
Thanks for reading.
