So I got the little guy because I didn't want to invest a ton of money in case I didn't like it. I got the Daily Detox kind which is a green apple flavour. It has a full serving of greens+ plus a cleansing and detoxifying dandelion, milk thistle and alpha lipoic acid. Basically in this powder is everything good for you under the sun. From spirulina to bee pollen. I'm excited to add it to my morning smoothies, I'll let you know how I feel after using it for a while. I'm new to the product so I'm only supposed to take 1/3 of a scoop and gradually increase my amount to 1 full scoop over a 3-week period. We'll see!
Today I also made a little time to plant my herb garden! I KNOW! I'm so excited about it!! Mom and Dad and Brooke, my sister, got me and C a herb garden for Easter and I'm SO excited about it! I planted Oregano, Basil, Rosemary and Parsley. To be honest, I keep looking over at it to see if anything is growing yet lol. It's been half an hour. I really want to see them sprout! I even have bigger pots for when they finally... bloom? Is that the right word?
There is something to be said for growing your own food (or herbs in my case). I think if I lived in a small town or if I lived back home with my family, I would totally plant a garden. I really wanted to plant my own tomatoes and cucumbers in pots when I first moved to Toronto and keep them on our balcony. Unfortunately, after thinking about it for a while, I realized that since I live above the Gardner Express Way, the car fumes would probably absorb into my vegetables and basically make them lethal. So I didn't go ahead with that idea lol. However, my herbs just need sunlight so I have them perched nicely on the floor next to our giant windows!! And they're not going to get so insanely large that they'd need to be outside. How long do they take to grow? I had to call my parents to help me plant everything over the phone. I'm not good at this sort of thing, but I wish I was! My dad and grandparents always had a garden growing up.... or maybe it was the older man that lived behind my grandparents. I don't know, either way I wish I had a garden.
I have something fun for you guys!!!
The wonderful people over at UberFit sent me one of their cool t-shirts to try out for myself, and they're wanting to give one away to one of my SUPER cool readers! Cool right? They're so neat! Check out the shirt I got
Anyways folks, I'm off to go cook up some chicken breasts with peppers and prep some food for the week and for dinner! Oh... and perhaps sip a glass of a nice red wine :).
What was the highlight of your weekend? Were you one of the MANY people I saw running along the water in Toronto today? :) b
