Wheatgrass and Pizza!!

Yes i said wheatgrass and pizza.  read on and you will understand!!
Our next detox food for the week is wheatgrass! 

Wheatgrass is great for increasing red blood cells and lowering blood pressure while also revving the metabolism. It can be used to cleanse the body; organs, blood, and gastrointestinal tract of any harmful debris that may be within. Wheatgrass can also be used to heal wounds and increase blood count. It is usually taken in juice form but can also be applied to the skin to treat wounds. 
I suggest starting with one ounce every morning.  Gradually increase to 2 ounces in the morning and if you are cleansing or going through a healing crisis kick it up to 2 2 ounce shots per day- one in the morning and one in the late afternoon on an empty stomach.  
My "Kelly Detox Tonic" at Puree has 1 ounce of wheatgrass.  Ask them to add an extra shot if you want to kick it up!!   Make sure to add wheatgrass into your cleanse this week! Let me know how it makes you feel!   In my Plant-based Nutrition Immersion Program i teach you everything you need to know to grow your own and optimally benefit from this amazing food.

Fabulous morning workout!!  The body and mind were in sync.  Home for shot of e-3 live and power smoothie:

12 ounces green juice 
1 scoop vega protein
1 tsp camu camu
1 tsp blue manna
1 scoop acai powder
1 cup mixed berries
1 frozen banana
3 leaves kale
handful dandelion greens
handful cilantro
1 tbsp dulse

I was working on my new blog/website this afternoon so i did a quickie lunch.  Enjoyed more of my Pesto Salad from yesterday and the Susie Sprout Salad.  I'm a little addicted to the Susie Sprout Salads!!  
After camp we headed to the library for new summer reading books and then Mason and I went for a fabulous bike ride.  i love that he likes riding the trails now!!  
Tonight the boys and i made some homemade pizza!!  

Yes my boys eat pizza and they love every bite.  I get an organic multigrain crust, organic homemade pizza sauce and a vegan rice cheese.  We spend time making it together and that is the most important part- the experience together.  We also make raw pizza together but tonight it was 100% baked pizza.  And no- i do not have any desire to indulge in foods like this.  Once you eat clean for a long time the body has no cravings for foods that most people crave.  

Keep on cleansing!!!
