I love tea, and I love to start my day with it. I just found a great video on youtube from the Dr.Oz show about tea and how drinking the right teas at the right time (coupled with proper diet) can help lose/ manage weight! Check it out and let me know what you guys think. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDp-tELrr-0 )

No skipping breakfast allowed this week (or ever). No excuses, those of you that claim you have no time, I call BS!!!! Everyone can spare 5 or 10 minutes to grab some breakfast, and for those of you who say you don't have much of an appetite, a smoothie may be a better option. I looked online for some smoothie ideas, and I think this Paleo Diet Smoothies Recipe book may be of some assistance. It's easy, simple and good for you. Check it out!
BREAKFAST...Get Some :-)

Okay, so I know I have been MIA on here lately, but I am still getting the hang of this blog thing and I am back! I went on vacation to the beach a week ago and I guess you could say I was still on vacation mode. But, I want to know if any of you were able to keep up with the challenge for the month of May???

Week 3 Challenge: Eat lots of produce! (5.14.12 – 5.20.12)
Our challenge this week is a little bit easier than the last ones I think. Our challenge is going to be to fill up half of our plates at each meal with fruits and veggies.
According to MyPlate, each of us should try to make ½ of each meal fruits and vegetables. This is important because these produce items have many nutrients our body needs. Try to eat the produce raw as much as possible because heat can destroy a lot of the beneficial nutrients. Juicing is another good option just keep in mind that a lot of nutrients oxidize rapidly upon contact with air so drink the juiced produce immediately! When you are picking out your fruits and veggies try to pick a large variety as different items have different nutrients.
Again, let me know how you guys are doing with this challenge!

(5.7.12 – 5.13.12)
The following is a list of a few of the ingredients of an item often times found in fast food restaurants and in many products in grocery stores, lets see if you guys can guess what item it is that has these ingredients. Leave your guesses in the comment box, prize for anyone that gets it right! The ingredients are…
This is why this week our challenge is going to be to eliminate any processed foods from our diet for the whole week! When going shopping try to stay away from any boxed foods. Try to shop the peripheries of the grocery store more than the isles! Think to yourself, would my great great grandmother have had access to this? If not, then put it back, if she wasn’t eating it, you probably shouldn’t have it either!
