Fruit & Veggie Cleanse

About Mrs. O.

This blog is for the average woman. The everyday woman. The budget friendly woman. The woman who can only spare 40 minutes to get herself ready in the morning. The working woman. The vivacious woman. The woman who wants to be healthy, confident, and beautiful. 

With still so much to accomplish, I have realized how much my story and daily routines have the possibility of sparking sharing amongst women, and the ability to help someone else.


Fruit & Veggie Cleanse

Every once in awhile I like to switch things up and motivate myself to lose more than a pound or 2 for the week - which is my current norm through proper eating habits. That being said, this week I've decided to only consume raw fruits and vegetables for lunch and dinner.
  Here are 4 tips on how to join me and try it for yourself:
  • Purchase A Veggie Tray - This stems back to my bulk buying advice. Purchasing a veggie tray from Sam's Club or Costco will allow you to have fresh choices all week long without breaking the bank. Pre-sort all of the veggies into ziplock bags for easy grabbing. A good girlfriend taught me this trick when she sends her hubby off each week.
  • Stock Up On Fresh Fruit - Fruit is a great source of sugar that your body needs. It is also low in calories, and high in water. Like vegetables, eat as much as you like!
  • Increase Your Water Intake...Even More - Considering the type of food that you'll be "restricted" to, be sure to consume a great deal of water throughout the day. This helps even more with the cleansing process.
  • Lean Meat - Can't commit to 100% raw fruits and veggies all day? That's ok! You have to start somewhere, and I'm all about improvising versus giving up altogether. Throw in a piece of lean chicken or fish with your raw fruit or vegetable to satisfy protein cravings.
Remember, it's only for a week and you may just like it! Cleansing is a great choice for those looking to jumpstart your weightloss, clear your skin, and overall feel great. Let me know how things go for your fruit & veggie cleanse, and what some of your favorite fruits and vegetables are.
ewg Happy Eating!
