DAY 4 ON OUR “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge!”

No Comments 12 April 2010

How are YOU doing so far? 
Eliminating sugar from our diet can be very rewarding. I find that one of the greatest benefits is that you wind up choosing healthier food choices because your not filling up on foods that have simple sugars in its ingredients, also known as “empty calories.” 

I must confess that I am finding this experience to be an extremely  satisfying one.  The emails and comments that I  receive  motivate me to keep on writting! Women are  sharing  with me either their challenges or questions about details in their diet which clue me in to the fact that everyone  wants to adhere to the strictest letter of our law!

Some expressed that even though they are not joining in the challenge, they are reading the e-mails and are motivated to possibly try it at another time of their life.

Others  revealed that their kids are getting involved and trying to eliminate sugar from their diets. While other woman feel “like fabulous roll models to their children and husbands by taking good heath care of themselves.”

 Where ever YOU are in our Detox Challenge its ALL GOOD!

Thank you for reading, participating and sharing.

I love the questions-though please be patient with the answers as I’m getting lots of them!

Q: Can we eat dairy products such as low fat mozzarella cheese or cottage cheese.

A. Yes! Low fat or fat free dairy products are fine.  We are aiming for a healthy diet that promotes all food groups.

A recent study showed that the more servings of dairy foods that adults consumed, the greater the percentage of their total calories that came from saturated fat (definitely not a good thing).

But the other side to the story is that their intake of many key nutrients — like protein, calcium, magnesium , folate, B1, B2, B6, B12, and vitamins  A, D, and E — also increased along with the number of dairy servings.

So how do you get all those great nutrients from dairy without the drawbacks?

Low-fat dairy is the answer! As you decrease the fat in dairy products, you cut calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol , while protein, calcium, and most other vitamins and minerals remain high.

Low-fat milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, and reduced-fat cheese pack a protein and calcium punch in every serving. Just a cup of lite nonfat yogurt, for example, gives you a third of your daily recommended calcium intake, along with 17% of your estimated daily protein intake.

 I realise that many people don’t eat dairy. To those I simply recommend obtaining those same nutritious vitamins from other sources. Such as; dark leafy greens for calcium, beans for protein and spinach for folate.

Detox Your Home – Today!

Your home should be the cleanest place in the whole world… and you may think it is, but by using cleaning products filled with hazardous chemicals, you are actually doing more harm than good!!! You can read the alarming facts HERE. The good news is that keeping your home clean and healthful (to you and the planet) is not as hard as it seems.  And contrary to popular belief, these green cleaners work just as well as the chemical ones. I know because I use them!

So I’ve gathered some easy tips from Shaklee’s website. They make my favorite products for keeping my house squeaky clean.

  1. Get the dirt.
    Educate yourself about what you bring into your home at www.householdproducts.nlm.nih.gov
  2. Have a clean-for-all.
    Put on the gloves and get rid of the nasty stuff in your home. Responsibly, of course. Your local waste collection service has guidelines for proper household hazardous waste disposal, as well as collection sites for things like paint, batteries, and cleaners. Whatever you do, please don’t toss this stuff in the garbage.
  3. Welcome healthy into your home.
    Commit to carefully considering everything that crosses your doorstep. Here are some safe, healthy things to have in your home: 

    • Fresh air. Open your windows to reduce indoor air pollution.
    • Essential oils. Use these instead of air fresheners.
    • Plants. Besides being nice to look at, they can absorb harmful gases and help clean the air.
    • Organic cotton bedding. Avoid standard bedding treated with chemicals.
    • Floors made of recycled and renewable resources.
    • Healthy paint. That new paint smell can be as nasty as it smells. Choose low VOC paint instead.
    • Cleaners that are truly cleaner. Look for these clean credentials on Get Clean products: non-toxic, natural,
      biodegradable, concentrated, and hypoallergenic.
  4. Clean up our collective home.
    Make the earth healthier for all of us who call it home by using these things in yours: 

    • Compact fluorescent lighting. They last a whole lot longer.
    • Energy Star-rated appliances. Save money and energy.
    • A low-flush toilet. Replace the largest user of water in your house. Ultra low flushers cut water use by one-fifth.
    • Low-flow showerheads. Same pressure. Less water.
    • Your flicker finger. Turn off lights and appliances when you’re not using them.
    • Gray water system. Install one to recycle used household water for your lawn.
    • Tankless water heater. Save money, energy, and space in the broom closet. Use it to store your new
      Get Clean Starter Kit.
