Dr. Oz Three Day Detox

Woo-hoo! two posts in one day… As long as I was talking about eating well, I thought I’d mention the Dr. Oz three day detox.  I just finished day three! After a crazy month with all three kids at home, our good eating just went out the window.  Considering the boys eat like carnivores, my daughter a self proclaimed pescetarian (had to look that one up in the dictionary), and DH not eating wheat, I felt at times like a short order cook! The boys complained there was nothing good to eat, and their sister complained there was too much junk food in the house.  That compounded with two rounds of holiday cookie baking (so much fun!)… It was time to detox.  I’m not promoting it, but this three day detox works great for me.  It gets me going on the right eating track.  Start the day with green tea, followed by three very healthy shakes. If you want to try it, you can find the detox here: Dr. Oz Three Day Detox. I had to do some frozen fruits, as raspberries and such are out of season and hard to find.


Einkorn Bread

In our quest  for better health, DH and I have drastically altered our way of eating.  After reading the book Wheat Belly by William Davis, we decided to try a lifestyle without wheat.  I thought DH would have some difficulty with it since he grew up in Europe, on bread, pasta, whole milk, and real butter.  But, he’s managed much better than yours truly, and is back to the weight when we first met. Me, my cholesterol is great, but the weight has been slow to come off…  Anyway, in lieu of traditional bread, I bake an einkorn bread.  You can find the flour on numerous sites.  Einkorn is supposedly a much healthier alternative to the wheat we consume now.  Here is the recipe that I use: Hubpages.  It doesn’t rise as much, and isn’t as fluffy as regular bread, but all in all, a good substitute:
