Holiday Feasts into a New Year Fast!
Its 2010 and it's time to make a CHANGE! Our bodies are exhausted from the frantic craze of the holi-daze... dehydrated and congested, this is the perfect opportunity to clean up and clean out!
By resting the digestive system of the body one can attain purity of the body, speech, and mind. As a whole, our society promotes overworking the digestive system and rarely do we see a TRUELY healthy person. This is because most everyone isDIGESTIVELY EXHAUSTED. This is the cause of all disease. By RESTING the digestive tract and eliminating bile stones in the bile bladder, thereby relieving pressure in the abdominal cavity, true health can be obtained. A system that has a sluggish septic or garbage disposal is a sick unit indeed. This is the root of all illness. ¹
One of my favorite meals, Electrolyte Lemonade, is perfect for giving our system the rest it needs while hydrating and nourishing! It's simple, tastes great, and it is completely satisfying! Make this drink everyday for the next 14 days as your breakfast, which if you look at the word mind-fully = break(ing) - (the)fast... You will see and experience something incredible. Allow your body the opportunity to let go of all the junk, all the shit, all the old habit patterns and emotional tendencies that were meant to go out with 2009!
2010 is about the choice to love yourself more... go deeper then ever before... risk everything to have it all!!!
And now.... (drum roll) the recipe for: ELECTROLYTE LEMONADE
2 Organic Lemons
3 Tablespoons Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
6 Tablespoons Raw Honey or Liquid Stevia
6 Cups Purified Water
1 Teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
1 Organic Pear
1/4 Cup Aloe Vera (Leaf or Gel)
Aloe vera is one of the most nutritious vegetables on the planet. Each leaf of fresh Aloe vera contains a mucilaginous gel, which is a potent source of polysaccharides. These healing long-chain sugars have been linked to Aloe's historical use as an aid to immunity, digestion, and the liver. These polysaccharides act as a unifying force, synergistically combining the effects of Aloe's nutritional components to activate even higher levels of healing. The gel of raw Aloe vera contains vitamins C and E, plus the minerals calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, and lignins. ²
How To Prepare
Place the 6 cups of purified water into your blender. Next, remove the yellow skin from the lemons keeping pith intact; quarter and place in blender. If you have FRESH ALOE (recommended) cut a quarter of the leaf and fillet it placing only the clear gel into blender. If using bottled aloe, please get the organic aloe gel which can be found HERE. Next you will wash and cut the pear adding that and the rest of the ingredients to your blender and blend on high for a few minutes. This will make a 8 - 10 cups.
You want to drink ALL of it in one sitting; take your time and remember to also chew your liquids allowing your SALIVA to mix well as this begins the digestive process.
Again remember to begin your day with Electrolyte Lemonade for the next 14 days and watch your body transform! Enjoy the process of elimination on all levels and allow yourself to FEEL.... feeling is the KEY to understanding your environment and the life around you... it is the KEY to letting go... loving and LIVING!
