Detox Day 3 - Just Move It!

Don't forget, just because you're on a cleanse doesn't mean you stop exercising! Moving your body helps your body get rid of toxins through perspiration and also improves oxygenation, bowel elimination and liver function!
Your Challenge - move your body DAILY for 20 minutes during the rest of the cleanse. I don't care 'what' you do - shovel the driveway, jog, yoga, ski, hike - just get your heart rate up for 20 minutes! In addition, aim for at least 1.5 hours of sweating every week.
All you busy moms need to find time for exercise as well. I put one or two kids into a jogging or bike stroller and run around the neighbourhood on the days that I can't 'get away'. Another option is an exercise video OR some core/resistance training that you can do right in your bedroom while the kids play! Make it a priority.

Recipe: Creamy Quinoa Porridge
This is a great protein-rich way to start your day!
Rinse 1 cup of quinoa in a collander under cool water. Place in a pot with 3 cups of almond or rice milk and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. Add additional milk if desired, and sweeten with a SMALL amount of honey or maple syrup. You can add fresh or frozen blueberries if you like. Enjoy!
