As Thomas Jefferson said, "A strong body makes the mind strong." It is a new year and I want to transform my mind and body. My transformation started today, with a brisk 30-minute walk, onion tea, an 8 ounce glass of water, and a protein smoothie for breakfast. I have to retrain myself not to over use sugar. I am detoxing for the first fourteen days of this transformation with
Trader Joe's Complete Body Cleanse. I follow the instructions on the box.
To transform my mind, I am reading one book of interest per month.
In the coming weeks, I will provide great tasting slow-carb recipes/desserts/dinners/lunch/breakfast along with different exercises. Read my transformation and tell me about yours.
I started my day with a brisk 30-minute walk.
Then I made Red Onion Tea. The benefits of drinking onion tea: the onions fights free radicals, onions are loaded with vitamin C, onions regulate blood sugar, and red onions promote cardiovascular health.
1 Large Red Onion
Cut the onion in half. Put the halves into a pot of spring water making sure the onion is covered. Bring to a boil for 10-minutes. Strain the water and drink hot. Red Onion Tea does not taste good, but I want the health benefits.
Want Quick Fast on the Go Breakfast? Try this Smoothie. A strong blender is needed to liquefy these ingredients.
