Day 2 on the program and my energy level is starting to climb. I feel fabulous after my Jumpstart packet first thing, and the craving for that first cup of coffee is greatly diminished. Now, I have about half a cup but only after my Jumpstart!
Meals are more effort for me as I just am not used to cooking, preparing, shopping, but I know that this is just what I needed. I needed to have a program that forces me to TAKE CARE OF MY BODY with the wonderful, beautiful, nutritious foods God put here for us—spinach and broccoli and almonds and all sorts of mushrooms and different kinds of fish and salads with mint and cranberries and grains I’d never heard of before—or knew how to prounounce—like quinoa! The word “quinoa” is pronounced “KEEN-wah.” It comes from the Spanish word, quinua, which itself comes from the word “kinwa” or “kinua” in the Quechua dialect.
I am including a link here on this amazing food. I’ve had it twice, once at a deli where it was prepared with cranberries, mint and cashews, and once at home where I dry roasted it in the pan before adding water for a nutty flavor. It was delicious!
Here’s to your health!
