Trying out these @xobakingco gluten-free cookies for his lordship to bring on our roadtrip tomorrow. They’re pretty delicious, slightly chalkier texture than a “real” cookie but still soft and gooey centers. Would definitely recommend for anyone following a #glutenfree diet!! #health #food #gf #cookies
People always send me messages asking if x detox is good or if y detox is better and they usually consist of some bizarre mix of things you’d never want to ingest.
So for those interested why not try something more sensible like this. Your body is designed to eliminate toxins and does a pretty great job of it all by itself but trying something like this (or adapting your diet to look a little more like this) will help it on its way. Lots of fruit and veggies will provide you with (among other things) lots of fiber to help eliminate the nasties quicker.
Adding gelatinous whole foods like chia seeds or aloe will also help. Think of them as a really healthy version of drain-o for your body. They act like a sponge and pick up all the toxins on the way out.
‘If you were alone on a deserted island with a pig, would you eat the pig or starve to death?’
Hmm. If you were not alone, living on a planet with 7 billion people, had access to unlimited fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and other healthy foods, and knew animals suffer and die horrible deaths so you could eat them when you don’t need to eat them to survive, would you continue to eat them? The difference between our questions is that your scenario will never happen and mine is the choice you face right now. Which do you believe is worth answering?

I’ve never been one to count calories purely because i’ve always been happier gauging my wellbeing on how i feel.
Recently i have been curious as to what my average daily intake is vs what i’m “meant” to consume (BMR x fitness level and what not) so i decided to use yesterday’s calories, a fairly average day, to figure it out.
Taking my BMR and fitness level into account i’m supposed to have around 2140 calories per day.
My actual calorie intake is more like 2500+, meaning i eat as though its an 8 day week. Probably should’ve caught up with me, no?
There is a huge difference between eating 2500 calories of the average American diet vs 2500 calories of my diet. The calories i consume are ones that my body will USE, things that will actually help it function in a more efficient way, meaning i metabolize things faster. 2500 calories of McDonalds is only going to slow you down.
Also the more muscle you have the faster you will metabolize fat so thats another thing to take into account.
Some people just have slower metabolisms, some have thyroid problems, some people can’t keep weight on.
What i’m trying to say is that what works for one person or the “average American” isn’t necessarily what will work for you. Use your common sense and eat healthily; things that will nourish your body not clog it up. See how your body reacts to it and go from there.

Finger lime varieties. Finger limes are a micro-citrus originally discovered growing wild in Australia. The interior pulp can best be described as citrus pearls, or citrus caviar. The citrus pearls can be squeezed out of the finger lime and used in any place that you would use a lemon or lime. The flavor is similar to that of a lemon-lime-grapefruit combo, the juice bursts from the citrus pearls when bitten into.
