I found this recipe on Facebook for something called Fat Flush Water. I tried it the other day and personally, unless you are absolutely crazy about mint, I would eliminate it. So today I made it without the mint and it tastes great. If you like it sweeter, just add a packet of Stevia to your glass. Want the recipe? See below the photo.
Recipe (body flush and detox water):
One cucumber, one lemon, one or two oranges, two limes and a bunch of mint (only if you like the taste of mint)
Slice them all and divide the ingredients between four 24 oz. water bottles (I used a gallon (glass) jug for all of it, as you can see in the photo), and fill it up with filtered water. Drink daily! This tastes delicious, helps flush fat and counts toward your daily water intake.
Lemons: Help in the absorption of sugars and calcium; cuts down your craving for sweets.
Cucumber: Acts as a diuretic and flushes fat cells. It is alkalizing to the body and if you have an alkaline body, it is difficult for disease to thrive. Cucumber also increases your energy level.
Lime: Promotes a healthy digestive tract.
Mint: A natural appetite suppressant that also aids in digestion.
Just as I headed home today, looking for something that would make a good Tuesday photo, I came across something new … brand new. Taco Bell … and it’s fairly close to my house. Uh-oh, is their menu on my low-carb diet? Something I’ll have to investigate. Why? Because I love their plain, simple, crunchy tacos. I wish I wasn’t a fan, but alas, I am. I could be in big trouble now. If only I can practice some restraint – LOL.
Today’s photos are of the wall that separates their drive-through and a place to sit and eat outside. The second one is up close. I really like what the artist did here. Makes it inviting to sit there (when it’s not blistering hot outside).
I know you must be asking if I bought some tacos and the answer is no. But the day isn’t over yet. Namaste’
Today’s photo is a collage of some of my faves. Having a gazillion (OK, a slight exaggeration) photos on my computer can sometimes lend itself to some creativity, so here’s my Sunday Soul Collage. Some of these I took long before I started the 366 project.
WS and I went out to dinner and we both blew our new eating plan all to hell. He had Veal Piccata and I had the Chef’s special pasta, bread & butter, and a fabulous glass of Merlot …. mmm … to die for! We won’t even talk about dessert; I’m not fessin’ up to that! But I have to say it was good for the soul. Back to normal eating plan tomorrow.
Ever had one of “those” days? When I saw this tag this morning, I knew it was the perfect photo for how I’m feeling today. Anybody else feeling the same way or is it just me? I think my brain needs some chocolate 🙂 Namaste’
Yippee! Skippee! I finally felt well enough to get out of the house today and managed to actually have some quality time when I wasn’t coughing. I feel so blessed! Even though there are many more spring flowers popping up everywhere, I felt like I wanted to photograph something else. So once again, the Universe obliged. Passing by one of our favorite BBQ places, I noticed they had painted the side of the building so I just had to stop and shoot it. Now that I look at it, I’m getting kind of hungry.

Wow! Little did I know when I committed to a photo a day for all of this year how fast the time would go. Or how interesting it would become to find things to photograph and then write about them. It’s now Day 100 and I’m still at it … only 266 days to go! Color me more happy, more grateful, more persistent, more creative, and more aware than I was 100 days ago. Life can be such an adventure, even in the tiniest of ways.
Today’s photo is a salute (of my favorite Merlot variety) to all of my fellow 366’ers and blog readers. Bravo to all of you photo bloggers who have hung in there and grown through this process; sharing your hearts and souls with all of us through your photographs. And here’s to all of my other blog readers who have cheered me on and inspired me with your comments. I am humbled and grateful. Cheers and Namaste.
My sweetheart and I went to a late breakfast today and then off to see THE HUNGER GAMES. We both thought it was a great movie. A little scary in some parts and a bit sad in others, but overall, very good.
Today’s pics are from my camera phone in a couple of places we visited. The java wall sculpture is in the restaurant and the skateboards are in a store that we were killing some time in before the movie started. All in all, I ate too much today. My rationale is that it’s a holiday weekend 🙂 Namaste.
