Trader Joe’s Haul | Under $50

I decided to do a trader joe’s haul because it is my current obsession! I mean seriously you can’t beat the prices. They have a lot of organic products which I love! The first time I went to trader joe’s was a few weeks ago and I fell in love. First the prices of course, but they also have a product selection that you will not find at any other grocery stores. Every time I go here I try to get a few new things to try, which is always fun.

Turmeric-Lemon-Ginger Natural Detox Tea

I have been obsessed with turmeric lately and try to add it to drinks or meals whenever I can! It can be very strong in the beginning so I recommend only using a little at first.

Adding this to your daily routine is going to naturally detox you and boost your metabolism.

The Truth About Naked Juice

The Truth…

I  used to love different kinds of juice drinks like Naked Juice, and then I started to learn more about nutrition. I thought well the label says it has all of these different fruits and vegetables in it. How can it possibly be bad for you? A couple of months ago I started to really look and understand the nutrition labels. When I saw that Naked Juice has over 28 grams of sugar in just one of them I was disgusted.

Ever since I learned about that I refuse to buy juices I just make my own smoothies now.

Detoxing Your Body With Food

Before I got into health I always thought to detox was when you had to drink something to clean out your body. I recently found out that you can just detox your body with foods. What exactly is a detox? The purpose of a detox is to eliminate toxins from the body by turning them into waste, the waste is then eliminated. The goals are to enhance the bodies detoxification pathways, mostly the liver! This is because the liver is the bodies main detoxification organ. The liver is in charge of cleaning toxins and wastes from your blood and separating out the useful nutrients to synthesize hundreds of biochemicals that your body needs for daily functioning.
