More Green Drinks!!

Hi there,

Today's post will be shorter. I'll just cut to the chase. My cleanse is going really well. I've been able to stay focus. I have been tempted to eat however I have overcome and let me tell you it feels good to overcome :) I can only credit my strength and determination to the Good Lord. If any of you have been following my blog lately (body cleanse) then you'll understand what I mean.

The recipes for my green drinks have been taken from Green for Life by Victoria Boutenko. I received a copy from a friend a while ago and I was impressed by all Boutenko covers in her book. There are so many testimonies {in her book} of all the great things green drinks did for individuals from curing diseases to having clarity of mind and clearer complextion and everything in between. Needless to say I was compelled to try it for myself. Here I am on day 4 and feeling great. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner :)

Day 4 at a glance
-7:00 woke up refreshed drank my water
-9:00 had a glass of green drink (romaine lettuce, apricots, bananas and blueberries)I mixed the psyllium husk with the drink
- had heirloom tomatoes with lemon juice, cayenne and salt
-9:30-12:00 lots of water
-12:30 another glass of green drink (same as above)
-from here till 6 pm had a normal day just lots of water
-6:30 had lots of water and grape juice (fresh)

-I was really battling. I wanted to eat a piece of toast with butter so badly. I left the house and that helped me stay focused :) It feels so good to overcome. PTL!!! Other than that the day was wonderful.

**If you'd like a recipe or learn more about the benefits of green drinks don't hesitate to ask I'll be more than happy to pass on the goods.** ;)


I'll be back tomorrow with Day 5 at a glance and a card!!! See you then.

So is the drink good, because the picture makes it look good! Or maybe it's the strawberry! :) The Dr. told me I was dehydrated and needed to drink more water, it is really hard! I am sitting here trying to down some more water! 8 glasses seems like alot! I hope everything is going good with your cleanse!

Hi Naomi,

The product I really like is Fiber Blend Colon Cleanse. It serves as a full body cleanse plus it has a how-to-guide. There are no discomforts and it wont interfere with everday activities. There's also a book that really encouraged me to get started and that was Green For Life by Victoria Boutenko. Hope this is helpful :)
Thanks for visiting. If you have any other ?'s please do not hesitate to ask I'll be more than happy to assist wherever possible.
Best Wishes
