Here at THE GOODS we love checkin' in with ourselves. Your body is talking to you all the time, telling you what it needs and doesn't need, but are you listening... A great way to open lines of communication is by adding and removing foods from your diet. This gives the body some time to adjust, and you can get a feel for how you're actually processing certain foods. Typically we suggest a green smoothie a day for 7 days, but if you've already been there loved that then it's time to try eliminating something for 7 days. Suggestions of foods to eliminate one at a time are gluten, dairy, sugar, meat or anything you think you might been consuming unnecessarily or in excess. You often notice the biggest affects when you reintroduce that item so watch closely. One of my favourite mommy friends just removed gluten from her diet for a week and her darling 6 month old daughter's eczema cleared up substantially. Pretty crazy eh! We're here if you have questions about the 7 day challenge, we love your emails!
