Used to hate it in my childhood (don't ask me why!!) and now I totally love it.
I love all the aromas, the colors, the texture of Mama Honey.
I only buy organic and raw and please pay attention to that cause most honey in the supermarket is not raw anymore. And Mama Honey that has been heated (for whatever reason, to pour it or to make it more beautiful, to controlled crystalize it or to change it's color..) is not so good for you anymore. Old Ayurveda already said that and I was surprised to read about it in my first Ayurvedic book. Now the science is also backing this up and I kinda had withdraw reactions from my old tea with lemon and honey for a long time..
I know , I know, the heated non-organic variant is everywhere - and the original honey is much more expensive but yeah, maybe ask yourself why that might be? When the only thing they'd had to do it put it in jar and sell it? Could it be that they put something else in the honey to make it cheaper? I'm just sayin'..
fresh fruit and leafy greens
Try a 24 hours detox mini-feast with only natural, organic and not processed foods of any sort, no sugar, no coffee, no processed teas.
Do this between 18.00 the first evening and 18.00 the next evening.
Do this in a day without very much activity and when you maybe can stay at home or even better, in an open space in nature.. Please have a toilet on close distance as you would probably go to the toilet more:-)
Begin the first evening: stop eating after 18.00 hours.
You can drink lots of water, fresh juices or smoothies and go on a no-caffeine policy (no to black or green tea or coffee, yes to herbs teas for example).
Eat the next day only vegetables, salads and fruit as breakfast - or a big green smoothie!
Drink lots and lots of loved and filtered (or even better, ideas here) water, you can try it with lemon and even honey if you wanna, or go the whole way and mix it with chlorella and other green stuff..
Like I said last time, Lady Lemon is a good friend of mine.
As always, I am talking organic:-)
Me and Lady Lemon do a lot of pleasant things together and I am going to talk about a few right now:
1. dry peel: What do I do with all that peel (you know, from the lemons that I use for the smoothies..)..? I dry it - in the summer in the sun (ehhhmmmm last summer we had some warm days..) or in the dehydrator. Or, if you are not really into raw food, you can also put it shortly in the oven. After it's dried, I put it through the kitchen robot or the blender (depending on how much it is) and I store it in a glass jar. I use it in smoothies, in the ice and lemonade in the summer and in raw or not raw cakes. I also eat from it sometimes, it's really perfumed and yummy.
I also use it in my hand soap making and in soft hand made scrubs. You can even use a bit of lemon dust in your vacuum cleaner where the air gets out - and will have a wonderfully perfumed house. (.. that is, if you like the smell of lemon peel, I assume if you are still reading that you do)..
Today's love: lemons.
You can use lemons in many many ways for your health.
They are perfumed, beautiful, nice to touch. you can even play with them.. Did you ever play catch with your child with lemons? the great thing about it is that they are not easily offended because their thick skin (especially if they are not very very ripe) and when rolling on the ground they go unexpected directions..:-)
Today's tip is about hydrating and cleansing, as well and about making your body more alkaline, something we should all de more:-)
