New Me for A New Season!
I'm starting a little cleanse today. I saw someone post something on Instagram about The Hot Belly Diet and so I looked into it, which led me down a wormhole learning all about the healing benefits of Kitchari. I read somewhere that it's a good cleanse to do in between seasons, and it's been spring-like some days, and winter others so now seems like a perfect time to do this. I will probably never have a job that provides health insurance. That's just a sad fact, and because of personal experiences I am very leery of free/low income clinics so I need to do whatever I can to heal myself. Most of what I read about this cleanse calls for oatmeal and Kitchari to be your main meals. I'm going to do potatoes and kitchari because I'm not a fan of sweet breakfasts, and I just am not a huge fan of oatmeal to be honest. I'm also ordering some Atman Tea. I tried it for Sororitea Sisters and when I was researching the health benefits, I was pleased to learn that ashwagandha root is excellent for hypothyroidism!
I haven't decided how long I'm going to do this cleanse, probably either three or five days. If I love it and feel awesome and not too bored I might do it longer. Truth be told, I really do feel best when I stick to very simple foods. When I have a day where all I eat is potatoes and a green smoothie, I always feel so light and energetic. Anyway, after being in a slump and feeling so depressed and helpless and hopeless, I've had a change of heart and I'm going to make food my medicine and really work on healing myself. So, my food might be boring for the next few days, but hopefully the results will be totally worth it!
