There will be two blogs today:
one with your new grocery list (buy food today!)
& then the other with the recipes for tomorrow's adventure (day 1).
First off, it's important to remember, NO other liquids for the next eight days besides filtered/spring water -- no coffee, tea, juice, Gatorade, lemonade, not even milk. Water is one of the key components to the purification process. NOTHING can replace water. That was the biggest lesson I learned last summer, when I averaged 2-3 glasses a day. Baaaaaaad. The average person, whether on this program or not, should consume 8 glasses (64 oz) of water every day; those who suffer from headaches should drink EVEN MORE as their minimum, considering that dehydration is a trigger for headaches/migraines.
Okay! So ready to go to the store? Stock up like a lunatic on your veggies and fruits -- keep in mind that "you should eat twice as many servings of vegetables as fruits!" That's the hard part - lots of veggies. Do not stray away from the things on this list when buying. Also, don't forget to buy some brown/wild rice and some lentils. I would go organic on as much as possible (especially berries & the rice), but no worries if not. Let's just first get you thinkin' healthy. :)
Lastly, but super important, buy some SEA salt. I personally promote the Celtic Sea Salt, because of the health benefits and the unique flavor, but if you don't have a health food store close by, just pick up the most natural sea salt possible (check ingredients).
HERE IS YOUR LIST.
I would love to hear what you bought!
