WITH A TEATOX, PREPARATION IS THE KEY
Ha, this month will sure be different. It’s June, the start of a season, and that means a Raw Essential Teatox month begins in 3 sleeps.
In the past, prior to detoxing I overindulge in things I feel I will miss.
Not this time.
I have learnt.
Make it easy on myself.
I know the first 4-5 days are challenging.
Instead of overindulging, I have found that if I am prepared in the kitchen, and being mindful in the days leading up to the beginning it seems to make it an easier transition on myself.
This weekend I am making a batch of Bone Broth. I will already have been drinking it in conjunction with my tea for a few days first.
Then, when I cut out sugar, dairy, wheat and everything processed and it makes the adjustment smoother. Here is the Bone Broth recipe I love. Make your Bone Broth in advance while you have the energy, to re-charge the body during detoxing and low energy.
I find it is the best thing to replace cravings for sugar. I make heaps for my boys and myself. Usually it doesn’t last long, but this time I am going to try freezing it.
On cold nights I steam carrots, onions, broccolini, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, whatever I have in my fridge and add them to hot Bone Broth, and I have dinner. Bone Broth is also full of minerals.
Remember to go to Pino’s at Prahran Market on Sunday for a $10.00 box. Because Pino’s is not organic, soak your vegies in the sink in cold water and 2 cups of inexpensive vinegar. Scrub with a hard brush, dry and put in the fridge. Not perfect but much better than not doing it.
Then use this abundance to juice or add to Bone Broth. Be prepared for the teatox is the best advice I can give you!
