Cheers and Happy New Years Sippin Gypsies!!! This post comes to you while enjoying a cleanse cocktail (recipe below)!
What a filling holiday 2017 was! I had my share of decadent deserts, stuffing and rich mac n cheese to celebrate throughout the season. Now I want to lighten up and begin the new year refreshed, and start getting ready for beach season! Last year I completed a 30 day cleanse just after the holidays and I felt amazing!! I wasn't trying to loose weight, just simply trying to reset after a few months of sugary, fatty foods, but what resulted was not only feeling better and re-energized but I did loose weight and felt lighter.
So here I go again! I fell in love with the Arbonne products for my 30 day cleanse last year and have started it again for 2018. It will be 30 days of committing to minimal processed foods and mostly lean proteins and fruits and vegetables. Personally I am choosing to minimize my dairy intake as well and doing at least 15 minutes of exercise or meditation every day. I have a group of my friends and fellow Sippin Gypsies who are on this adventure with me and we are helping each other stay on track and sharing recipe ideas, and we will finish just in time for Valentine's Day and Carnival and Mardi Gras!!!! What I love best about this cleanse is it helps kick my cravings for deserts or processed snacks and leaves me feeling satisfied after enjoying raw veggies and tea! I'll be tracking my progress and recipes on Instagram. For those of you curious to join: the products I am using daily are:
Arbonne 7 day cleanse for the first week of my cleanse
Arbonne Protein Shake Mix (chocolate flavor)
Arbonne PhytoSport Set (if you choose to do an intense workout regiment with your cleanse)
an assortment of green teas and detox teas
a fridge full of veggies, fruits and lean proteins
Chocolate Cleanse Non Martini
2 scoops of Arbonne Chocolate Protein Powder
9 oz Cashew Milk (Or if you prefer Almond Milk or Coconut Milk)
10 ice cubes
10 diced strawberries
Put all ingredients in blender and mix. Pour into your favorite sippin glass and garnish with fresh herbs and a 2 more diced strawberries!
