Green Diva Healthy Detox: With a Little Help From my Friends

3 16

I posted about the first 2 days of my Kaeng Reang 3-day healthy detox earlier in the week. I started the week out by drinking the smoothies in my Ringo Starr glass – I have a collection of Beatles glasses that I LOVE. Please check out the first post (it’s a quick read. go ahead, we’ll be right here when you get back).

Note that Ringo’s face is a big solemn and not entirely cheery. So, I woke up day 3 and realized I needed to switch over to George Harrison, because he looks so happy. I drank my smoothies out of George all that last day and we did good!

Post-detox observations . . . 

1. The Kaeng Raeng program encourages you to use a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, so I noticed I was overrun with compost food scraps after three days!

2. I lost 4 pounds! Yea!

3. I felt very energized, clear-headed and generally good.

4. I really didn’t want to eat anything and break the spell and decided to drink tea and a lot of water to continue to flush out anything that was stirred up by the detox.

5. Keeping a sense of humor helps.

6. The Beatles always help.

7. The people close to me that knew I was doing this were VERY supportive and encouraging – special props to the husband (Wayne Bouchard), who stayed out and ate all of his meals out for 3 days and didn’t take it personally when I was VERY grumpy on day 1!

I used to do some type of natural detox every few months and have gotten away from doing it. I think I need to make this a more regular practice. I’ll keep you posted on that one!

eat. blog. be merry!

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
