My day begins:
1) my new liver detox (ph balancer) on an empty stomach first thing when i wake up: in a cup, put 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of organic molasses, 1/2 lime (usually I use lemon, but I just ran out), 4 sprinkle dashes of powdered cayenne pepper, a few sprinkles of ginger powder, a few sprinkles of nutmeg, & a few sprinkles of cinnamon poder, 1 cup of water (or alkaline water). Can't say the taste was the best, but please google the benefits of all the ingredients i'm mixing together, ok?

#30 A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Goal In Itself

Welcome to the Cleanse & Fitness home remedy detox program #30 :-)

Always drink plenty of water (if you can't drink a gallon a day, then stay hydrated to avoid being thirsty)

Please let your friends know about this blog :-)

My day begins:
1) my new liver detox (ph balancer) on an empty stomach first thing when i wake up: in a cup, put 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of organic molasses, 1/2 lime (usually I use lemon, but I just ran out), 4 sprinkle dashes of powdered cayenne pepper, a few sprinkles of ginger powder, a few sprinkles of nutmeg, & a few sprinkles of cinnamon poder, 1 cup of water (or alkaline water). Can't say the taste was the best, but please google the benefits of all the ingredients i'm mixing together, ok? 
(YOU CAN SEE A PICTURE OF IT ON POST#29)

Here's the recipe for an oven baked veggie caserole I made for the boyfriend & myself.
Ingredients: all organic eggplant, zucchini, purple potato, green onion, garlic, sea salt.
The making:
Chop the green onion & garlic, and in a separate bowl, add extra virgin olive oil  & sea salt. Let it sit for a good 10 min (i'll call this my 'olive oil flavoring').
Cut the rest of the veggies, any style you'd like.
Smuther/batter-up all the veggies with the 'olive oil flavoring. Mix it all up until each veggie piece gets oiled up.
Let it sit like that for a good 15 to 20 minutes, & in the meantime you can preheat the oven/toaster oven to 350. 
Once the veggies have been drounded for some time, put them in the oven in a oven safe baking/caserole bowl (i used a square shaped glass one. works quite well), & put the cover over (use aluminum foil if you don't have a cover). Let it cook for as long as you feel you want your veggies to cook which means that you'll have to be checking on them through out the baking time (some like the crunch in their veggies & sum like 'em soft. Your choice).  
Eating Healthy Is Inexpensive:
People frequently use the cost of healthy foods as an excuse for not eating healthy.  But with veggies, fruits, & especially sprouts being so cheap, there really is no excuse for not eating healthier. 
Okay, been busy rehearsing a lot of flamenco dance due to shows coming up, plus i'm training myself on the side. So my workouts are pretty consistent.
My eating habits are the same as in these posts, so refer to all of them.
Let me know how your veggie caserole came out. Mine wad pretty simple, but delicious :-)

#29 A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Goal In Itself

Welcome to the Cleanse & Fitness home remedy detox program #29 :-)


Always drink plenty of water (if you can't drink a gallon a day, then stay hydrated to avoid being thirsty)

Please let your friends know about this blog :-)

My day begins:
1) my new liver detox (ph balancer) on an empty stomach first thing when i wake up: in a cup, put 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of organic molasses, 1/2 lime (usually I use lemon, but I just ran out), 4 sprinkle dashes of powdered cayenne pepper, a few sprinkles of ginger powder, a few sprinkles of nutmeg, & a few sprinkles of cinnamon poder, 1 cup of water (or alkaline water). Can't say the taste was the best, but please google the benefits of all the ingredients i'm mixing together, ok? 
1) breakfast: all organic gluten free oatmeal in hot filtered water mixed with almond milk, goji & blue-berries, and a tsp on organic agave syrup
2) green drink: all organic kale, gluten-free oatmeal, parsley,  swiss chard, ginger, almonds, walnuts, goji berries, spirulina & wheatgrass powder, green apple, spinach, 1 scoop of vanilla gluten-free & dairy free protein powder, blueberries, grounded flax seeds, alkaline water, coconut & almond milk, and yummy :-)
The day also starts like this :-). What do you see? All organic :-)
3) workout of the day - today i rest because i've been working out everyday including rehearsing flamenco as part of my workout regimen (as i'm getting ready  for two flamenco performance events). My toes, ouch
4) my famous guacamole: all organic avocadoes, cilantro, red onion, serrano chile, garlic, tomato, lemon, sea or himalayan salt
5) cured beets: all organic grated beets, sliced red onion, lemon, dark balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp xtra virgin olive oil, himalayan salt. Let it get cured in the fridge for a bit and niam niam, enjoy as a salad :-)
5) baked all organic asparagus, green squash, purple potatoes, but first bathe in extra virgin olive oil with himalayan salt. Let the oils & the salt seep through, then bake at 375 for 20 to 30 minutes (preheat the oven, though).
6) organic green tea. niam niam. 
Can you believe i have over 300 different teas from around the world. Sum i can't even pronounce.
My hobby, when I would travel either with a performing company or perform as an invited guest, my goal would be to go looking for their native country's teas & spices. 
This here is green tea, but i should whip out my other unusual teas that have great medicinal properties :-)
7) 
*My 70 year old student: how come you like doing a lot if different things.
*Me: Henetta, the only thing I do is teach classes (dance/fitness), train people (like i'm training you), rehearse my solos & exercise, eat healthy & I enjoy performing with my current acts like the band - flamenco shows - or an acting opportunity.
*My 70 year old student: don't you get overwhelmed?
*Me: No,because I love it. It's when I do something I don't like that I get overwhelmed, but even then if i'm still doing what I don't like, there's a good reason for that. But I never really do what I don't like in most cases. So
Because I enjoy what I do, then i definitely don't get overwhelmed. 
*My 70 year old student: You have so much energy.
*Me: It's the way I eat. You know, those recipes I gave you.
*My 70 year old student: Yes, I've tried them. I love the green drink recipes.
* Me: Excellent. Lets get started.

#27 A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Goal In Itself

Welcome to the Cleanse & Fitness home remedy detox program #27 :-)


Always drink plenty of water (if you can't drink a gallon a day, then stay hydrated to avoid being thirsty)

Please let your friends know about this blog :-)

My day begins:
1) my new liver detox (ph balancer) on an empty stomach first thing when i wake up: in a cup, put 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 tsp of organic molasses, 1/2 lemon, 4 sprinkle dashes of powdered cayenne pepper, 1 cup of water (or alkaline water)
2) Breakfast:
Gluten free rice cake pizzas
Ingredients: gluten free rice cakes (can be purchased at sprouts health food store, homemade tomatoe sauce (recipe listed in post #16), spinach, black beans.
Preparation:
Brush extra virgin olive oil on your gluten free rice cakes, layer with tomato sauce, spinach, & black beans. Leave in the preheated toaster oven for 5 to 8 minutes and niam niam. So delish!
3) snack: in the nutri-bullet, i blended this together - 
Almond milk, kale, brocolli, celery, swiss chard, parsley, gluten-free chocolate protein powder
4) organice green tea time:
5) workout of the day:
Ran around once at Pasadena Rose Bowl :-)

6) Lunch: 
All organic
Brown Rice pasta with homemade tomato sauce (raw tomato sauce posted in post #16 :-)
Homemade raw green salad which has red leaf lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, celery, brocolli, garlic, tomato, bell peppers, avocado, garbanzo beans, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, tempeh, cauliflower, green onion, & cilantro (dressing was lime & extra vriging olive oil)
7) genmaicha green tea & seaweed time :-)
8) Had some ginger tea before going to bed. But before that, I went to see the Lone Ranger & I liked it. I thought it was quite comical :-). 

9) This is the reason why I don't drink cow's milk. I only drink either organic almond or coconut milk.
Cow's milk is the number one reason why most women have ostheosporosis 
10) I eat all these & let me tell you, my immune system is stronger than ever & I am able to maintain my weight under control :-)
11) So true. My salads are bigger than me sometimes. LOL! Just kidding, but I am eating every two hours (in small meals that is, but i'm eating all day :-)
12) I have a small case of alopecia, so it's crucial for me to maintain a micro-biotic diet. My hair is growing back, plus my stress level is under control, so that helps even more. 
Those unfortinate ladies (& males) who have an extreme case of Alopecia, I wish doctors would tell them that by changing their diet to an organic micro-biotic one, their hair could possibly grow back. My Alopecia is areata (a very small case) & when I get strict with my eating habits into healthy ones, it grows back. Almost all auto-immune diseases can be reversed if the body is given the right phytonutrients to help the immune system stay balanced. 
Ad for me, this time around, it was stress thay flaired up my alopecia, so guess what? (Unecessary stress, that is. Challenging, enganging stress I thrive on, but negative stress I don't do well anymore - when I was younger I was a 'any-stress basher' - but my body has finally told me 'slow down, otherwise I can't help yoi anymore'.)
 It's been too long & now I have consistently take care of my health thru eating healthy, exercising, and working on combating the negative stress that this L.A. fast life sometimes crosse pur paths; may I suggest doing some Kundalini meditation/yoga. That has helped metremendously :-) 
13) I know what I'm gonna make either tomorrow of the next day. Niam niam :-)
14) Yum.. I know I was forgetting something. I'm getting some beets for my green juices tomorrow :-)

I ate the black beans (whole black beans), so no picture of the black beans, but before i ate my fruit, i took a picture. My organic fruits are/were strawberries, blueberries, plums, mango.
Enjoy!
