I feel MARVELOUS! YOU will too~smoothies_book_cover_634_900_90auto

1 1/2 cups of unfiltered apple juice

1 medium raw beet,chopped,steamed or baked (if using a conventiocal blender)

1 medium carrot,chopped,steamed or grated (if using a conventional blender)

2 medium lemons,peeled and seeded

1 cup loosely packed chard leaves

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1 cup of frozen mango

Throw all of the ingredients(except the frozen mango) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute,until well combined. Add the frozen mango and balst ffor 10 to 20 seconds more,until smooth and creamy.

 

This vegetable-packed blend is surprisingly delicious according to Tess the author.She recommends you definitely add the mint.The betatine in beets flushes the liver,purifies the blood, and enhances circulation;carrots boost the liver’s anti-oxidant capacity and the lemons improve liver function. Chard provides syringic acid,a flavonoid that prevenst liver degeneration,and mango and ginger have liver-protecting properties,too.

 

I read if we partake of libations it is tough on the liver…so since I enjoy a glass of wine with my dinner meal…I tought this recipe for me is ideal. I have played with this recipe and added other ingredients. BUT I prefer HER recipe the best!

Secrets to a Good Night’s sleep!

photo sleeping toolsInsomnia and stress are two issues women are concerned about an bring up to me about in my beauty business. I take their needs very serious and wanted to post about getting your beauty sleep and perhaps help you.

Here is a healthy pattern to consider nightly: Before you got to sleep or bed…Have a warm cup of calming Holy Basil or chamomile tea.

If you’re no into tea…a warm glass of milk will do. Take a warm bath with cheap Epsom salts.They are AMAZING and relax your muscles and detoxify too.I know what you’re thinking you’re not a bath person! BUT when you can’t sleep and have nights of insomnia this is worth a try. THEY WORK.

Shut off ANY electronics…Only got to bed with your sweetie or yourself not a phone,tablet and more.

Place a few drops of Aura Cacia lavender essential oil into a spray bottle with some distilled or spring water.Spray your room with this relaxing spray.

OR try Serious Insomnia by Jimm Harrison Aromatherapy on a cotton pad and take a sniff, This aromatherapy oil takes you from frazzled and stress to feeling fabulous.

A white noise machine is another useful tool. Turn it on for the ocean,birds tweeting on a spring day and more.My husband loves ours.

If you can’t go to sleep and do get up…go ahead and get up and go into another room and watch TV or read a book or magazine until you feel sleepy. OR do what I love to do and unclutter your head by writing things down in a notebook.

NEVER go to sleep angry with your spouse or children…you will NOT sleep well. Kiss & make up.
