Arbonne DETOX Week Two

Hey Guys! If you don’t already, make sure to Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Ok so I’m currently in week three of this Arbonne detox but I wanted to tell you a little bit about how my week two went.
*week one click here*

So, let’s begin…

Week two was awesome, I did some grocery shopping (finally) and had plenty of tasty options for the week. Every morning I would start my day with a shake, then I’d pack my lunch and make myself a fruit smoothie for the afternoon. For the majority of the week, I felt energized, never hungry and kept noticing an improvement in my skin. I worked out a few times this week, all of which were very successful workouts. Week 2 was all in all awesome.

I didn’t eat perfectly the entire week, I ate some pie and a few handfuls of chips here and there. I drank coffee because well: I needed it.

Some things I lived off of this week:

small morning shake

I love bananas, chocolate, and almond butter so it’s obvious why I love this combo. The Station Cold Brew concentrate a great added bonus if I’m feeling a little lethargic or I sense it’s going to be a long day.

Small Snack

I love chips, but they’re not really detox approved, so whats a girl to do? Find something equally, if not more, crunchy. These brown rice crackers are super crunchy and eaten with baba ghanouj or hummus makes them an awesome savory snack to tie me over.

I had A LOT of trouble getting into the vanilla protein powder, it was like there wasn’t enough flavor in it? (I think that might just be due to my immense dependancy on the chocolate powder) Using these pre-mixed Welch’s frozen fruit & vegetables is so convenient, you’re getting fruits and veggies. I also added in anything else I might have had in the fridge or freezer. I found that having a sweeter stronger flavor made it easier to handle the Greens Balance powder and I liked these mixes with the vanilla.

I don’t have a ton of time so anything I can do to save me a few minutes here and there is key. These are just a few of the things I’ve enjoyed eating this week. Stay tuned for week three and four!

    Hi,

    Hate rain on your parade, but… but detox isn’t an actual thing… Sorry. Feeling good on it is because you’re eating pretty healthy. After all, you’re having protein, veggies and fruits (vitamins, antioxidants and stuff), healthy fats, etc. But that disgestion powder is not helping you in any way; and I can only imagine how expensive it is.

    A few sources for info:

    Take care.

      Hi there, the program is called “30 days to healthy living” the idea is you’re minimizing to the point of extinction the majority of unhealthy foods. Detox is just a word for withdrawing something from something else (in this case unhealthy food from my diet). Also, that digestion powder actually has probiotics and digestive enzymes that our body already uses to digest our food, it also contains peppermint to help soothe any discomfort (all medically backed ingredients that aid in digestion)

      So we’re actually on the same page, I know that I was feeling better because of the healthy foods I was including. this program in its entirety is a program to increase the number of healthy foods you eat and to show people how much better you feel with a well-rounded diet. Also, none of those links are recognized medical websites, and if you read their content compared to mine they don’t actually apply because we’re talking about 2 different types of “detox”.

      Thanks !
