Today is Day 5 of the Bepure cleanse and I’m feeling great! I woke up with a good amount of energy, after a sound night of sleep – which is always a blessing in a busy life! No complaints here – I did some yoga yesterday and it felt amazing. I’m really noticing progress and hope to continue on this journey of enhancing my health and well-being. The other night, I enjoyed a nice evening in with my best friend. We had dropped off my big computer (also functions as my TV for streaming Netflix) and my apartment felt empty…so we did a little rearrangement, lit some candles, enjoyed my house plants, and zenned out.
An orchid from a friend…I thought I had killed it, until I researched orchids and realized that they don’t stay bloomed all year round…but this flower has been in bloom since December, so I feel like a little flower momma.
My brother got this Buddha for me in China and I love it!
I wanted to talk about breakfast, in this post, as breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, an important one, and many people aren’t getting enough nutrients in theirs! So, I used to be a bacon, egg, and cheese on some kind of bread type of girl…but over the past few months, I’ve changed that a bit. Now, everyone once in a while, there is nothing like a mouthwatering breakfast of treats – including bacon, french toast, cheesy eggs, and some english muffins – but that can’t be a daily breakfast, as you NEED more nutrients. So, over the past few months, I have expanded my breakfast routine and added in some great choices!
Today, my breakfast consisted of oatmeal, apple slices, and a grapefruit. I woke up, took my Bepure Morning formulation with a big glass of water with lime juice…and started working! Around 9 am, I threw together a breakfast. Now, I soak my organic rolled oats in a mixture of water and greek yogurt. This helps to break down the fibers in the oatmeal, allowing your body to absorb more nutrients, and it also makes it cook a LOT quicker. I don’t eat instant oatmeal…so this way, I get the ease of instant, with the taste and health benefits of real oatmeal. So I put the soaked oats in a little simmering pot of water (the water is like 1/2” in the bottom of the pot, depending on how much oatmeal you are cooking). Then I cook the oatmeal for about 3 minutes, until it looks like it is cooked, slightly creamy, and before it burns.
After I have the oatmeal together, I put in a tiny bit of organic, unsalted butter – ground flaxseeds (approx. 2 tsps) – raisins – and peanut butter. This is something that you can adjust to your liking – maybe walnuts or almonds, maybe dried cherries, maybe chia seed – whatever works! Sometimes I drizzle a little bit of maple syrup over it, but it doesn’t always need it. It is a perfectly breakfast, with a big side of fruit (grapefruit is my favorite), and end it with a “hug in a mug” – my go to drink – a little apple cider vinegar and honey with hot water!
I hope that everyone is enjoying their cleansing experience. Remember to be aware of your body – listen – do you need more sleep? More water? Less exercise? A little more fruits/veggies? Whatever your body needs, give it. But don’t give in to cravings…I pushed through my chocolate craving last night – and you can too!
We (Universal Formulas) recently rebranded our Bepure cleanse and I think it looks great! The new design and website really highlight the cleansing experience – tranquility, calm, and clean – what do you think?
Enjoy the first week of the Bepure cleanse, and if this Easter/Passover weekend brings travels into your life (I’m heading to D.C. after work today) then safe travels! Love yourself & others!
