Ok I have totally taken the leap and going to LEARN how to eat clean for the next 21 days using this Ultimate Reset. Its about Detoxing your body but no like the detox you probably think this is about. STOP - This is cleaning your body from the inside and proving it nutrients/minerals we don't get much these days because we have gotten away from organic foods w/o pumped chemicals and such. This is not a weight loss program either that is an added benefit from changing your diet from meat/dairy gradually into Vegan Lifestyle.
I am doing this to get a handle on my eathing habits like never before. I can PUSH PLAY daily without any problems its like second nature. But sometimes my nutrition can be good for 1 week and off another week or day. I need to be consistent in this area. So YES I need this program for me. I need this layed out plan to guide me along. Coudl I do this alone and figure it out. Probably. But this Works for me, I know my strengths and weakness. And just reading a book is not going to help me I gradually need to learn this not cold turkey or just cook stuff. I like to know why I'm eating romaine heart instead of iceberg lettuce, why himalayan salt is better than Sea Salt etc... I need meaning behind the doing in a little more depth thats me and my mind.
THere was alot of prep for this program. Why? Because I had to shop like I have never shopped before. There were no staple foods on this list that we normally eat besides a few veggies, we are a meat eathing family. So It took me 1.5hr in 1 store and another 1hr in another to find everything to be set for 1 week. Was it hard to do, NO! It was just a eye opener to actually purchase foods I never wanted to buy here I am now buying them and seeing the recipes they will be used in for the next 21 days. Some new things I never heard of like Jicama! What is that? Something delish :) I'm making my own dressing, and found out inthe process how to make my own baby rice cereal for Mason. WHAT - just in time he's about to try rice cereal out for first time :)
Ok, needless to say give yourself like 1 week to read over everything and PLAN PLAN your grocery shopping experience without ANY distractions (Kids, spouse, phone) You will need it to find everything on your list. There is alot to purchase at first but not bad. OH stock up on Distilled Water very cheap purchase from any store especially Walmart .88cents :)
It helps to have a layout of your grocery store in hand. We have a Wegmans, Shoppers, Safeway, and Whole Foods store. So I had plenty to choose from. I stuck with the first 2 stores.
Once you get home KNOW how to store your veggies and fruits. You will need this for 1 whole week so you dont want spoilage. Just dont throw everything into your fridge in plastic bags and/or mixed your veggies and fruits together - LEARN how to store your produce people. I'm saving you money!!
GO over your booklet/kit - Know what you can prep now and use later in the week. Also veyr important if you work outside the home its not bad but you dont' want to be scrambling around in A.M. with prepping breakfast and lunch. When you could have cooked your lunch and storage to grab in the morning.
OH!! You dod have a few different supplements to do throughout your day. Nothing to bad ...
I'll do my beest to post daily here. I'm trying ot stick to youtube for these quick updates/progress.
Wish me Luck
Stay Tuned.. Day 1 - Day 21
