3 days to better skin? Let's find out!
Sooo, as Jon continues reading his Nourishing Traditions book, I’ve started reading Dr. Perricone’s The Clear Skin Prescription and it’s been nice to see that they go pretty much hand in hand. I’ve decided to a.) try out the 3-day facelift challenge and b.) blog about it. The diet is as follows (and can be found on Dr. Perricon’s site):
I’ll keep the blog posted with my progress and such. But to make sure the diet is as healthy as it can be, I’m following the best practices for preparing it (thanks to my hubby’s educated blog posts at www.jonshome.com). To start, I soaked some rolled oats from Sprouts tonight…well, they’re going to soak throughout the night to prepare them for easy digestion. A more complex explanation is in Jon’s post linked here.
First, you get a cup of rolled oats. We buy ours in bulk from Sprouts (love them!). Then pour a cup of warm, filtered water in with the oats into a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt, buttermilk, or (my fave) Blueberry Kefir. Then add a 1/2 a teaspoon of sea salt.
Mix those all together, then cover and let sit for at least 7 hours (and up to 24 hours) in a warm place.
In the morning, I’ll have some ready-to-heat-and-eat oatmeal! I’ll post some more recipes and such over the next few days. Wish me luck!! In the meantime, check out this awesome Co-op we’re going to sign up for when we get back from Cali in a few weeks…it’s going to be so great! www.themovementdallas.wordpress.com Jon’s especially excited to finally be able to get some raw milk. Our hippie healthy journey continues! ;-)
