The Real Deal About Artificial Flavors
Processed foods are the worst!
They contain too much salt, sugar, and fat. And not enough fiber, vitamins, or minerals. They're made with crummy inexpensive ingredients that you'd never find in your pantry or fridge; ingredients like artificial flavors.
Here’s my take on the real deal about artificial flavors. Why food manufacturers use them, and why you should avoid them.
And, of course, a delicious recipe that uses none of them.

The Power Of Hydration
It's no secret that our bodies are made of mostly water - anywhere from 50 to 70 percent. While humans can go about three weeks without food, they can only go about four days without water. It is one of the most important substances on earth, as all plants and animals need it to survive. Drinking more water is one of the easiest things that we can do to encourage good health.
Here’s more information why...
Today is a big deal
You woke up this morning and began making choices.
You chose whether or not to exercise, to eat a healthy breakfast, or to do something productive. You chose whether or not to eat that donut, to sleep in, or to watch an extra hour of TV.
At the end of each day the sum of your choices pushes you in a direction.
It could be pushing you in the direction of fitness and health, if your choices were predominantly wholesome.
Or the sum of your choices could be pushing you in the direction of weight gain, health issues and problems.
I find this perspective to be helpful when it comes to making a major body transformation. It’s tempting to feel helpless in changing your body when you have so many pounds to lose and so much work to do, since you aren’t able to do it all in one day.
However, by capturing the power of each day by making wholesome choices, you will be pushed in the direction of weight loss and health day after day, week after week.
Until one day you’ll look in the mirror and see that you’ve arrived at your ultimate destination: a lean, healthy and vibrant you.
So embrace the power of each choice that you make today, and allow a momentum of good choices to push you through to your goal.
Today is a big deal. Today is all you have.
Make the most of today.

Do This At Bedtime
The best way to ensure that you will make stellar choices tomorrow is to plan for it tonight. Before you go to sleep, jot out your plan for the next day.
What will you eat? What is your exercise plan? What food traps will you avoid? How much time will you spend watching TV?
Write down your ideal day and then sleep on it. When you wake up take that list with you as a guide to making great choices all day long.
Make this a before-bed ritual and watch how quickly you see the results!

Are You Toxic? Could You Use A Colonic? But What Is A Colonic Anyway?
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle purified water washing of the large intestine to clean, detoxify and aid in the reconstitution of intestinal flora. You comfortable lie on a colonic table and with a colon hydrotherapy machine, water is run very slowly into the colon. When slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water is released.
