Ultimate Reset – The Supplements

Each day of the Ultimate Reset you will  have to take at least two supplements.  From helping to restore your digestive tract, to alkalinizing your body, to helping your liver, all of these have very specific jobs.

The first supplement you will become familiar with is Mineralize.  Mineralize is a powdered Pink Himalayan Salt that is minimally processed.  Our tap water, and even well water, can be filled with so many additives and chemicals.  Mineralize is added to distilled water to give your body a very simple and clean water to help your body detox.

The second supplement you will get to know is Optimize.  Optimize is taken 30 minutes before each meal and is compressed into a pill.  Optimize is in the Ultimate Reset to help your body absorb nutrients and to promote health and wellness.  As we age our enzyme levels can decrease.  Stress, poor diet and environmental factors don’t help this at all.  Optimize is full of enzymes, such as amylase, lipase, bromelain and protease, which help your digestion system.  It also has camu-camu which is a great source of Vitamin C.

Around 3:00 pm on your first day you will taste your first Power Greens.  Being honest with you, this tastes awful!!  At least to me and to many others!!  But your body NEEDS this!  Power Greens is a combination of kale, spirulina, cucumber, celery, spinach and chlorella to help support your body’s acid and alkaline balance.

The majority of us have a diet of sugary treats, processed foods, Cokes and alcohol.  These, though fun, cause our bodies to work harder than they have to.  Power Greens helps to balance this out.  The best way to take this is with just a splash of cold water (like a shot worth), stir and chug.

Each night, before supper you’ll take 2 capsules of Soothe.  This is another supplement that was created to help your digestive system.  Soothe is made of organic aloe vera and curcumin.  Curcumin is very similar to tumeric and both of these promote digestive health.  Together, aloe vera and curcumin have antioxidant properties that help your body fight free radical damage.

The second week a new supplement is introduced.  Detox.  Personally, I LOVE Detox!  Like crave it, love it so much!  It’s lemony and so refreshing.  Mix it with cold water and chug.  It is a fiber drink, so make sure to drink it fast, before it clumps.  But I have found that many people do not share this same love.  Whomp whomp.  Whether you love it or you don’t, it works!

Have you ever felt bloated?  That could be a result of your colon.  Your colon does way more than expel waste.  It extracts water, potassium and some fat-soluble vitamins from solid wastes before your body eliminates them.  If your colon isn’t processing and eliminating waste properly, your body can back up, causing bloating.

This isn’t a run to the bathroom Detox!  It’s very gentle.  Coupled with milk thistle it helps to support liver function while aiding your colon to do it’s best work!

The last supplement you will take is in week three and is called Revitalize.  These capsules are filled with pro- and prebiotics for a healthy gut.  Things like antibiotics have taken away some of these friendly bacteria and we need to restore our digestive tract for healthy intestines and to help break down carbohydrates correctly.  You’ll take this three times a day the last week of your Reset.

After your Reset it’s really up to you how you want to continue.  You can quit all this goodness cold turkey or continue taking these supplements.  The first time I did this I quit taking them.  This time, I’m continuing them.  I have seen and felt how they work in my body and I want that to continue.  I’m looking so forward to feeling this great a year from now!

Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

When I menu planned for these I was STARVING.  Every food that danced in my little mind sounded amazing.

But then when I realized what I had planned to make for the night I, honestly, was a little disappointed.  I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms, and have never tried using nuts in place of the yumminess that is cheese.  But these rock!

The mushrooms.
The stuffing.
It just rocks.

I plan to silently and creepily sit in the corner during Super Bowl and see if anyone notices differences from this recipe and the old fashioned spinach artichoke dip.  (Yep.  Making a batch of just the stuffing.)

Spinach & Artichoke Dip
(Add portobello mushrooms and make it a meal)

Ingredients:Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms

3 large portobello mushroom caps, stems removed
1 (10 ounce) package of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed
1 (14 ounce) can of artichoke hearts, chopped
3/4 cup roasted cashews, unsalted
3 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 tsp sea salt
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp cayenne

Directions:

Heat the oven to 350
Combine the spinach and artichokes in a large saucepan and heat through.  Add a dash of sea salt and mix well.
Grind the cashews in a food processor until they look like a coarse meal.  Then add the coconut oil, garlic powder, basil, cayenne, and salt and pepper.  Puree until smooth.
Add the cashew mixture to the skillet, with the spinach and artichokes, and mix well.  Reduce the heat to low and warm through.
Fill the caps with the filling.
Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
(If you want to make just the stuffing, following the above directions, but warm mixture in an oven safe baking dish for 15-20 minutes.  Serve with sweet potato chips)

Serves 3 people.
