Detox Day 4 - Are you eliminating? BONUS PRIZE DAY!

So hopefully your headache is gone and you've broken free from your addictions by day 4 (although it doesn't mean it's easy).
Today I want you to check in with yourself to see if you're 'eliminating' your toxins properly. During a cleanse it's vital that you're dumping the toxins OUTSIDE the body, not just into your organs of elimination. A simplified checklist is
1. Are you having daily bowel movements
2. Are you peeing at least every 2-3 hrs
3. Are you sweating enough (at least 1.5 hrs per week)

If you answered no, then you need to figure out a way to meet those standards - drink more, move your body more, eat more veggies - or speak to your Naturopath if you're struggling and need some suggestions!

Quick Recipe (this was my dinner last night - very yummy)
Cook your brown rice in a rice cooker. Rinse a can of black beans (or if you're organized, soak dried beans overnight, cook and use those).
Lightly saute one diced onion and 1 garlic clove in olive oil. Add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, and 1/2 tsp each oregano and basil (dried). Add your 2 cups of cooked brown rice and 1-2 cups black beans. At his point you can add any extra veggies like baby spinach, grated zuchini, diced peppers, chopped kale. Cook until warmed through and serve.
