This year marks 25 years in radio for me and I’ve decided I want to start my journey by living clean. So, today I started JJ Smith’s 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. I’m doing the modified cleanse which consist of two green smoothies (one for breakfast and one for lunch), with one healthy meal for dinner, snack, and water/tea. The only healthy meal a day may consist of a salad, sauteed veggies, fish or chicken (grilled or baked). Avoid white sugar, meat, milk, cheese, alcohol, coffee, sodas, processed foods, fried foods and refined carbs during the entire ten days.
Rotate your greens: All greens have certain types of alkaloids in them. Now, these alkaloids are in very small, unharmful amounts, but if you continually take in the same type of greens week after week, you can get a buildup of that type of alkaloid and suffer serious health issues. The easiest way to avoid this is to rotate your greens. One week, buy spinach, the next week, kale, the next weeks, romaine lettuce. Or you can buy two two greens for one week and then two different greens the following week. The goal is to rotate different greens into your smoothies each week. There are plenty of green leafy veggies to choose from.
Day #10 Pineapple Kale
2 handfuls kale
1 handful spring mix greens
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups frozen peaches
2 handfuls pineapple chunks
2 packs stevia
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
Optional: 1 scoop of protein powder
Place leafy greens and water into blender and blend until mixture is green juice like consistency. Stop blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend until creamy.
Spiritual thought: Psalms 37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
Oh Well: Whenever I find myself in a situation I can’t do anything about, I have found that a good way to cast my care upon the Lord is simply to say, “Oh Well.”
Some things just aren’t worth getting upset about, yet many people do. Unfortunately, a large majority of Christians are upset, fretful, and full of anxiety most of the time. It is not the big things that get to them; it is the little things that don’t fit into their plans. Instead of casting their care and just saying, “Oh well,” they are always trying to do something about something they can’t do anything about. On more than one occasion that simple phrase “Oh well” has really helped me to make it through.
