Mmmm – some days it’s more delicious than others. The kids made it for me this morning (I love all our time we can “waste” while not having to rush off to school, just yet) so I am not sure exactely how much or what they put into it – but something along these lines:

1 Cucumber

1 Lime (peel and all)

1 Lemon (yup, no need to peel if you’re juicer is decent)

2 Apples (if I had made the juice myself, I would have only used one apple)

1 Bunch of Young Bok Choi

1 Head of Lettuce

(I really like adding a chunk of fresh ginger too)

It was such a refreshing drink! Thanks munchkins!

Mornings that include Green Juice make for such a great day ahead.

It’s packed with enzymes and all the juiced nutrients are absorbed much easier than if I were to chew and eat my juice ingredients.

…..and at clean up time – they were all long gone 😉

We’re treasuring the last week of  rush hour free mornings at our home. Since returning from our family holiday in Sweden, my husband is the only one sprinting out of the house in the morning. Come next week – we will tag team to get 4 kids, fed and ready for school – with nutritional lunches packed and hopefully matching socks and their beds made.

But today was a lovely lazy morning. I got up at seven – as the youngest announced that the new day had begun. He followed me into the bathroom and jealously watched me use my tounge scraper. “I want one” he said. The tounge scraper totally grossed me out at first – all the gunk that came off – but within a few days, I couldn’t start the day without. Scraping my tounge is just another way of detoxing – and an easy, covenient and refreshing way.

I will totally get one each for the kids – I am also hoping that I can get them to begin the day with a glass of lemon water (yes, I’ll let them squrt in a little maple syrup, an

d the older ones might like to turn it into fire water with a bit of Cayenne too). But that might be amitious — they are all doing really well with all the

unconventional foods and habits I with more or less success, impose on them. I’ll probably set out a pitcher of lemon water for them in the morning – as soon as I am back to beating them out of bed with enough time to spare 🙂

PS – borrowed the picture from , http://www.whole-body-detox-diet.com/tongue-scraper.html where you can read on about the benefits of tounge scraping 😉

Mothers have an incredible amount of power. Power to change the world. One child at a time.

All it takes is to be the best parent you can possible be. Easy. Right?

Perhaps you are caught in the rat race – and barely get your head above water. I understand completely. And when I go on to say that the most important person to look after is yourself – you’re probably thinking “impossible”.
BUT – how will you be a loving, peaceful, empathetic, fun, energetic, fit and healthy parent – if you never prioritize yourself? You are your child’s most important role model. Your child will grow up to do what you do – and not what you say.
Wouldn’t you want your child to grow up with a healthy amount of self love and respect? To be a resourceful, independent person who has clear values, and lives in line with those values?
Just like you!?

Step out of the race against time – take a breather – don’t sweat the small stuff!
Are your kids in a gazillion activities? Are you unable to say NO – and always looking to please others, before you take time for YOU?
What really, truly matters in life – for you? Think about it! Write it down – and live into it!

Your children will thank you (one day) if you pull them out of their extracurricular – and spend time with them, quality time. They will also one day thank you for taking time for you! (Even if that means a sacrifice on their part right now).
As a mom, it is even MORE important to nourish yourself – with the best food, the best exercise, the best leisure time and the best habits. In doing so – you will be the best parent ever 😉

I don’t know about you – but I have been BOMBARDED by people in my inbox today, who are all wanting me to do the same thing (no it’s not Viagra..).

They are inviting me to take a look at a very informative vido, that David Wolfe is making available. I had already looked into this, and signed up too, but with all the sales emails, I just didn’t want to clutter people’s inboxes with MORE of that. So – here’s the blog post – ENJOY!!:

Is it possible to stop getting sick?

What could you accomplish if you were free of
physical setbacks and full of productive energy?

I just finished watching a video that literally
flies in the face of everything I’ve known or
been taught about health, sickness, and the
immune system.

You HAVE TO SEE this video!

You’ll discover the secrets to an unshakable
immune system (And the purpose of this immune
system is to keep you healthy and protected).

This guy is remarkable and refreshingly honest.

His name is David Wolfe, and if you don’t know
him, he happens to be the most recognized super-
nutrition authority whose fans and clients
include T. Harv Eker, Tony Robbins, Angela
Bassett, Woody Harrelson, Mark Victor Hansen, and
hundreds of thousands more.

But he is living PROOF of what he teaches.

David Wolfe Has Never Been Sick in 15 Years!

He reveals exactly how and why in this video.

(And I mean step-by-step what to eat and what to
do for IMMEDIATE immunity transformation!)
