I really do a lot of reading and research on how I can bump it up a notch and improve on my health. My only New Years goal was to just be happy! I have embraced the fact the I am pleasantly plump and curvy. I will not and don’t want to be a size 3. I am choosing to improve my health and my body naturally and just BE HAPPY! Honestly the key to happiness and good health I believe comes from keeping your body alkaline! Such a stupid simple thing! I too am a very busy mom and taking time for me is difficult at times, who am I kidding… All the time!
I did my research and can up with this lovely cocktail that is knock your socks off amazing! I feel good, healthy and happy when I drink this. I shoot this cocktail every morning upon arising while my coffee water is boiling. Does is taste amazing? Not really! Is it tolerable? Absolutely ! Just quit your whining and drink it already! Here’s how you can prep for your cocktail in less than 7 minutes for 5 days at a time.
Fergie’s Alkaline Immune Cocktail
5-6 organic lemons, juiced (you will need at least a cups worth)
5 tablespoons organic apple cider
3 tablespoons local raw honey (optional but necessary if you suffer from seasonal allergies)
2 heaping tablespoons fresh organic ginger, grated with micro plane (or see below for other alternative)
5 teaspoons organic wheatgrass powder
5 teaspoons Spirulina powder
– Juice lemons and pour into glass container.
– Add the apple cider vinegar, honey and ginger cover and place in refrigerator.
– Or… If you don’t have a micro plane quickly blend the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, honey and ginger… Then pour into glass jar or container and place in fridge.
– Using 5 small containers or snack bags measure 1 teaspoon wheatgrass and Spirulina. Cover and set aside.
Every morning upon arising … Before consuming anything else combine 3-4 tablespoons of the lemon mixture with your measured wheatgrass powder and Spirulina and drink straight or combined with a small glass of water (preferably alkaline water)
Try to wait at least 15 minutes before consuming anything else. Give your body a chance to absorb and start using the cocktail.
