We had a good time yesterday going to garage sales and estate sales. We found a set of china, some Japanese tea sets, and a couple of books we can put in our E bay store. We found some items we can use, too....a blue fruit bowl for $6.00, three candles for the coffee table for $8.00, a decorative box for $5.00, a lawn chair for me to sit in the garage with Travis for $3.00, a pitchfork for $4.00, a large ball of twine for $2.00, a some free pencils.
Lunch yesterday was fruit smoothies made with peaches, apple, orange juice, kiwi, papaya, dates, romaine, and water; papaya; coconut; and almonds.
I made a trip to Whole Foods in Little Rock yesterday and stocked up on sauerkraut, coconut water, almonds, dates, crackers, coconut oil, toothpaste, and chocolate/goji squares. I met my friend, Connie, at Olive Garden. I had the salad with no dressing and the vegetarian Minestrone soup.
There are some things it is good to know when you are helping your body detoxify and heal naturally...
When your body is healing it is not good to use oils on your salads. It is best to limit your oils to what you get from your avocados, coconuts, and nuts. Don't use commercial salad dressings. Dr. Fielder makes something he calls Green Lava. The recipe is not written in stone, but one version follows:
Make Green Lava in the Vita-Mix or other high-powered blender by blending tomatoes, celery, sauerkraut, and green leaves (such as romaine and/or parsley). Serve over your salad.
I like to make something similar that I call Blended Salad. You don't even have to make a salad, because you eat it with a spoon...like a soup. To serve two I use the following recipe:
1 large tomato or 2 smaller tomatoes
1 cucumber, peeled
1 red bell pepper
Juice of one lemon or lime
2 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
- Blend in Vita-Mix until smooth
Add 6-8 stalks of chopped up celery and 1 head of romaine (from a 3 pack).
-Blend again until smooth.
Add 2 tsp flax seed.
-Quick blend to mix in the oil.
When you are detoxifying, the body uses different means of elimination. Bowel movements may be erratic, but it is no reason to be alarmed. Diarrhea and vomiting are common. You may experience headaches, rashes, and skin eruptions. These are all simple forms of elimination. Sometimes there might even be bleeding, but even this is not that unusual as a means of eliminating toxic poisons.
Deodorants and crystals that counteract body odor are suppressants. The only safe deodorant is good health, and good health comes from within. Soaps, perfumes, shampoos, and deodorants do not make us clean, because they leave a layer of chemicals that destroy our natural protective oils. The best way to clean the skin and hair is by brushing.
Right now, I us a mild natural shampoo bar every few days, but no conditioner. I don't use a deodorant anymore. Meat eating is a big contributor to body odor, and I hardly ever eat any meat. I use a fluoride-free toothpaste, and I use Ivory soap or one of the special natural soaps I buy from time to time in the shower.
To health and happiness.
