At this point we all know that maintaining a healthy diet, exercising on a regular basis, and avoiding known pollutants and carcinogens in our environment are all key to optimal health. To that end, we all make related decisions in our lives based on what we believe.
There are no guarantees that if we live well, we won’t get cancer or another disease. But, there is enough evidence showing that how we live and what we eat can impact our health. Why not give yourself the best fighting chance you can to stay healthy?
-Dina Coleman (Top Nutrition and Lifestyle Tips for Preventing Breast Cancer)
I feel like I should take advantage of the little control I do have over my health. I maintain a whole foods, plant based lifestyle .. I would say I eat healthier than the average Jane. I’ve never been one for fad diets, with the exception of South Beach, which was the beginning of my long-term lifestyle transformation many years ago. I have done 30-day green smoothie and other similar challenges. My most recent endeavor was a 21-day cleanse. I went through that program back in November and am preparing to do it again now. Join me!
The Fresh Start 21 Cleanse from the girls at Simple Green Smoothies is a really great program! It can be purchased and completed at any time, but there are four “group” events throughout the year. The next group cleanse starts on Monday, February 2. The SGS crew partnered with a holistic nutritionist to create awesome and tasty dishes, a full 21-day meal plan, shopping lists, and a handy dandy cleanse guide. There is also a Facebook group for cleansers to support each other, offer tips, ask questions, commiserate. Having completed this once before I will say that this program is really worth the $59 (on sale). That’s a pair of shoes or jeans or a couple of dinners out. The food is wholesome, healthy, nutritious, and really tasty. I’m excited to it is all again.
