End of Summer Teami Cleanse

img_7807

What an amazing and beautiful summer it has been here in Chicago! My absolute favorite season of the year! Summer is known as the “fitness season”, the time to shed your winter lbs and get ready for that teeny bikini!

With that said, it’s very easy to get caught up in work and fall into a bad eating/workout routine once it starts cooling off.

Here’s a solution to help maintain that summer bod 🙂 TEAMI!

As I have mentioned before, I am in love with this product. I use the Teami Cleanse about 4 times a year! That along with eating as clean as you can, and getting that booty to the gym a few times a week will be your secret weapon!

I also have to share another amazing and delicious find… I add a cinnamon stick to my Teami Skinny & Teami Colon! It’s the perfect spice to add that cozy taste helping with the transition into fall!

The Teami Detox Tea & Colon Cleanse can help with the following:

  • Boost metabolism
  • Aid in weight management
  • Suppress appetite
  • Reduce bloating
  • Decrease water retention
  • Cleanse and detoxify the major internal organs
  • Improve complexion

Fresh Juice Friday

This post is dedicated to all the juicers out there!

www.organicrush.com.au
www.organicrush.com.au

I have just recently started juicing and I have to say that it’s very addicting!

Anyone that knows me, knows my obsession with tomato juice, V8 juice, Bloody Mary’s… With that said, many of you won’t be surprised when I share my favorite homemade pressed juice recipe with you!

Introducing: Dannah’s Delicious V7

V for veggie and 7 because it’s not only my lucky number, but it’s the number of veggies that go into this amazing recipe!

I know it’s actually 6 veggies and 1 fruit (the tomato) but V7 just sounded better than V6+1, so they are going to all be considered a veggie in this mix…lol!

Put the following in your juicer:

4-5 Large Organic Tomatoes

4 Big Celery Sticks

3 Large Skinned Carrots

1 handful of Parsley

2 Handfuls of Spinach

2 Medium Lemons

1 Medium Lime

What comes out… Delicious, fresh, homemade V7!

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the ingredients, you might want more of one thing, less of another, just depends on your personal tastes!

Juice away!!

Energize & Relax

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today my alarm woke me at 4:45am …Sounds fun right? I think NOT! Haha

It’s so hard to wake up that early and get motivated! It literally takes all my strength and fortitude not to hit the snooze button, roll over, and stay cuddled up in my warm comfy bed all day!

There’s good news! This is how I start my morning grind. I recently dumped coffee and started a new relationship with a healthier and much more tasty (in my opinion) alternative!

Let me introduce TEAMI ENERGY!

Lemon H2O

My absolute favorite beverage is simply a huge glass filled to the top with ice, water and fresh lemon juice squeezed into it!

Every morning I fill up my water bottle with ice almost to the brim and purified water, grab a fresh lemon out of the fridge, slice it in half and squeeze the juice into it. I use the juice of half a medium size lemon and drop the actual lemon into my bottle for added flavor. (make sure to wash your lemon thoroughly)

This extremely refreshing and delicious beverage reaps many health benefits as well!!

Heath benefits of fresh squeezed lemon water:

Apple Cider Vinegar!

I’ve received quite a few emails asking about apple cider vinegar! I have to say as gross as it sounds to drink, this stuff works wonders and the benefits far outweigh the nasty taste! The good news is… it’s an “acquired taste” so before too long you won’t mind it!

As far back as I can remember, my mom always had a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar after a big meal. I would always say, “ewwwww mom! gross!”. She would always laugh at me and tell me it was good for digestion and that it helped speed up her metabolism. I thought she was insane! Well, you know how the saying goes, “mom knows best”. My mom really did know best. This stuff is truly amazing and works wonders. Here are some of the incredible health benefits that apple cider vinegar has to offer:

-Quick fix for heartburn! Take a dose (1 Tbsp) as soon as you feel the symptoms coming on
– Fights infections & inflammation
– Detox’s and cleanses the kidneys
– Helps with digestion
– Can prevent the flu
– Aids weight loss by increasing fat burn and decreasing your appetite
– Balances the body’s pH level
– Lowers cholesterol
– Promotes bowel movement and helps relieve constipation
– Boosts your immunity
– Helps cure sore throat due to allergies or the common cold (Mix 1-2 Tbsp with a cup of warm  water and some honey)
– Swish in your mouth to get rid of bad breath
– Soak your feet to help with soreness and reduce foot odor (2 cups of water- 1 cup of ACV)
– Reduces belly fat
– Can be used as a facial astringent to clear acne or body acne (bacne)
-Can relax sore muscles (add 3-4 cups into your bath)
-Can help sinus drainage (mix 1Tbsp in a 6oz glass of warm water)
-Reduces tummy bloating (a bikini season must)
-Relieves nighttime leg cramps

***My Apple Cider Vinegar Daily Dose… Drink 2-3 tablespoons post lunch and dinner!***

*Definitely keep it in the fridge! It’s much easier to drink when it’s cold!*

Foods for a flat tummy!

In my opinion, one of the most challenging things about getting fit and staying fit is “the kitchen aspect “of living a clean lifestyle.

How many times a day do you walk over to your refrigerator looking for something yummy into which to sink your teeth?  For me this happens anywhere from 10-15 times a day!  I catch myself constantly migrating towards the fridge only to open it, stare inside, close it and walk away.  I usually end up repeating this exact scenario 10 minutes later….as if something new, delicious and tasty would magically appear!

We have to be honest….Snacking is almost impossible to avoid!

That agreed, here is a list of some belly flattening foods and drinks that are great to eat between meals!

A cup of Green Tea

A glass of water with a wedge of fresh lemon squeezed into it

A few tablespoons of Cottage Cheese

Greek Yogurt

Cinnamon (LOVE it on top of Greek yogurt)

Sliced Cucumber

Quinoa

Sliced Tomatoes

Fresh Spinach

Miso Soup

Hard Boiled Egg

A sliced Banana

A fistful of Almonds

An Avocado Halved with an Extra Virgin Olive Oil based dressing

Grapefruit slices

A cup of Berries

Sip some Apple Cider Vinegar (I know it sounds gross but it’s so good for digestion, speeding up your metabolism & a flat tummy)

Healthy Snacking Everyone!

TeaMi Cleanse

Hey Everyone!

A lot of you have been asking me about this amazing cleanse I keep raving about. Well, here you go…

I can speak from experience, this stuff is the real deal! I’ve tried a bunch of different detoxes and teatoxes and TeaMi is by far my favorite! I am already on my second round! Using TeaMi in conjunction with healthier eating habits (I say healthier because you do not have to change your diet at all, but you will get the most out of this cleanse by cutting out the nasty late night McDonalds/ Taco bell runs) makes you both feel better and look better from the inside-out! I call this cleanse my “secret weapon”.

Some additional good news….

Our Teami Skinny is the morning blend that you drink when you wake up! Replace your morning cup of coffee with a healthy and delicious cup of Teami Skinny which can help boost metabolism, raise energy and suppress cravings! This is the first step to doing our detox!” teamiblends.com

TeaMi Colon

“TeaMi Colon Cleanse Tea is used to purify the body from the inside out, cleansing the organs while simultaneously clearing the digestive tract of any toxins caused primarily by pollution, harsh chemicals and processed foods.

• Detoxing and cleansing the body

Power Flower Salad!

DIY mouth-watering protein “Post Workout” salad!

I am a sucker for a great salad and I love creating my own!  After hearing about edible flowers while watching a cooking show on the food network, I had to investigate and experiment! These amazingly tasty, colorful and decorative edibles are also nutritious add ons!  Edible flowers, and I emphasize the EDIBLE! (PLEASE, PLEASE do not just pick random pretty flowers because as many species can be toxic) can provide you with vitamins A and C and the greens are high in calcium, iron and phosphorous!

Here’s my creation…

How to DIY:

SALAD:

• Your favorite mixed greens (spinach, kale, arugula & romaine)
• Parsley
• Tomato
• Avocado
• Hard boiled eggs (3) (for added protein)
• Edible flowers of your choice (you can find these at your nearest health food grocery store)
DRESSING:
• 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• 5-6 Tbsp red wine vinegar
• 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
• Pepper to taste
• 2-3 pinches of oregano

Mix well and pour over the top of your colorful, healthy and delicious salad!

Get ready to drool 🙂
