Essential Detox Fizzy

You know that urge when you really want the bite of fizz on the back of the tongue but every single fizzy drink on the market is loaded with chemicals, artificial flavors, neurotoxic sweeteners and sugar. 

I used to love the first sip if a freshly opened Coke! I liked the way it bit into the throat and feel of the effervescence in my mouth.  I thought I would be able to stop at just one sip, but no, I wanted more and more until the entire syrupy chemical concoction was gone.

I still love that occasional bite!  Here is my recipe for a delightful detox treat that I can whip up in less than 5 minutes.

…or how about when you’re on that deadline, and , you’ve been sipping water all day to keep you brain functioning at optimal…but…grrr…have to pee AGAIN!

…you’ve been on hold for 30 minutes and finally reached a real, live person…and bummer, you have to ring off to use the loo

…and most irritating…you’re just about to drop into the land of nod and, suddenly…no, surely not, no, I’ll make it through the night, oh yeah, I better get up and go pee’…you throw the covers back, leave your comfy spot and stumble to the toilet with half closed eyes hoping you will be able to fall back to sleep.

The question I get asked most often is….

What do you eat every day?

It’s a good question, it really is.  It’s a good question because when you are trying to get in shape, lose weight, increase your energy and feel younger, you want to know what works for people who have done it.  It just makes sense to take advice from someone that has the results you want, right?

You see, 6 years ago, I weighed 30-40 pounds more than I do today and I was three sizes larger.  Six years ago, I was sick more days than I was well, I had no energy, couldn’t sleep through the night, and I was debilitated by Migraine and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Disorder.  I was addicted to sugar, coffee and pity parties, because at the time…well, I felt my life sucked.
