Hope with Green: Green Easy Soup Recipe for Detoxing

The past holidays caused you to eat a lot, to drink a lot and to sleep a lot (because of hangover). Everyone must have been through this. Once in a year celebrations are just unstoppable, aren’t they? But be reminded that you still have to be taking care of your health. I’m sure, you don’t want to spoil one or so days of the first week of New Year with being sick. Your health might get wasted during the holidays but you can always start a New Year with a new healthy lifestyle. Take this simple soup recipe that I am to introduce to you. A healthy vegetable soup recipe. Take note, a veggie soup recipe.

This recipe will yield 4 servings. Phase 3.

Ingredients for this Detox Soup:1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 inch of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cups fresh broccoli, cut up
1/2 pound of fresh spinach leaves
3 parsnips, peeled, cored, chopped
2 ribs of celery, trimmed, chopped
A handful of fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Fresh water, as needed
Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
Lemon or lime juice

Steps in making this Detox Soup:

  1. In a large soup pot, pour the olive oil in it, heat it over medium fire and sauté garlic, onion and ginger. Put the broccoli, spinach,parsnips, parsley and celery in, and stir a bit until the spinach is distorted. Add water just enough amount to drown the vegetables. The spinach will be cooked quite a bit so avoid adding more water. Maybe later, if you want the texture thinner.Heat to a high simmer, cover the pot, and reduce heat to a medium simmer. Cook it for fifteen minutes or so until the veggies are softened. Seems like one of those quick and easy soup recipes you’re familiar with.
  2. Blend the soup in an immersion blender to smooth it.
  3. Make a taste test and if it needs brightening, squeeze a citrus to it.
  4. Not really a grain-lover but eats, serve your soup with a spoonful of newly cooked rice in the center of your bowl- perfection!

Hope you enjoy this recipe! Please share to us your photo as well. Say hello to the New Year with a mission of health and wellness!

Over the past few years we’ve heard thousands of fast metabolism diet reviews as it brought a miracle to thousands of people’s lives.

fast metabolism diet reviews

One of the main highlights why the fast metabolism diet was popular among other diet plans over the market is that, it focuses on healing up your metabolism rather than depriving you of foods to eat. It confuses and keep guessing your metabolism of what food it would received every meal. Thus, keeping your metabolism on fire as it heals your “five major players”.

We’ve read several fast metabolism diet reviews on how the lives of fast metabolism dieters was changed, how it boost up their self-confidence, and how they were able to attain a healthier and fitter body through this diet. Now that we’ve heard  the reviews from the fast metabolism dieters, let’s take a look what does the diet experts have to say about this diet plan. Would they also recommend the fast metabolism diet to their patients as a weight loss program?

“The FMD diet seems like a new way to think about an old concept: eating a diet of whole foods.” – Sarah Waybright, owner/founder of WhyFoorWorks LLC.

Sarah Waybright expressed that Americans were too fond of eating refined, nutrient-poor foods and juices that contains a lot of carbohydrates, wheat, corn, sugar and fake ingredients that slows and kills our metabolism. According to Dr. Sarah, what Dr. Haylie did was brilliant. She eliminated and banned these fake ingredients and replaced these man-made juices into natural foods that is rich in fiber and micronutrients, but low in calories.

“It’s best to learn how to plan a balanced, moderate, nutrient-dense diet that’s based on a variety of whole, unprocessed foods and that fits your own individual needs and dietary preferences.” – Dr. Lehmann

Dr. Lehmann strongly agreed with Dr. Haylie’s principle of eating natural and organic foods and stop taking in additives, preservatives, hormones, etc that could slow down your metabolism and your liver’s job in burning fats. You can only heal and keep your metabolism on fire  by staying away from toxic chemicals. However, she also emphasized that eating organic foods is not an excuse to choose eating unhealthy foods. You still need to choose healthy foods to eat. She even said that she would rather eat a handful of organic vegetables than eating a handful of organic cookies!

Jasmine Jafferali, a lifestyle and wellness consultant also agreed with Haylie’s choice of organic products and foods than the unnatural foods.

While there are some parts of the diet plans that diet experts doesn’t agree with, only one thing is for sure. That food is indeed our medicine and that through eating natural foods we can attain a healthier and fitter body! So if you wanted to change your life and have a healthy lifestyle, start eating natural and organic foods now and keep yourself away from these fake, toxic, man-made foods!

Dealing with Alcoholic Drinks in The Fast Metabolism Diet

How to deal with Alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet when holidays and parties are coming in?

alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet

After the Thanksgiving Day, we are about to deal with the Christmas and New Year season, not to mention dealing with several office, and Christmas reunion parties while we are on the fast metabolism diet. It is no doubt that we can’t help but feel anxious when  the temptation is at its highest point. Not only foods are its highest level of temptation, but drinks too. These holiday seasons may not be complete without having a drink or two with our fellow friends and relatives. How do we deal with avoiding these alcoholic drinks in the fast metabolism diet?

We all know that alcohol is like coffee, it is one of the great metabolism killers. Not only it slows down or worst, kill our metabolism, but also it destroys our liver. The Fast metabolism diet’s goal is for our 5 great organ players to digest foods and heal our metabolism. We certainly can’t have them wasting time on digesting these metabolism killers. If possible, avoiding drinking alcoholic wine may seem to be the safest and the best option. But for those who certainly can’t give up drinking yet, here are the tips on how to deal with alcoholic drinks while on the fast metabolism diet.

Drink at least 8 ounces of water.

For every glass of wine or mixed drink you drink, you need to balance it by drinking at least 8 ounces of water to process the alcohol in your liver quickly. It will also help to cleanse your body and minimize its intoxicating effects. You can also add lime juice (juice of a whole lime) to your water. It has more vitamin A than lemon and this Vitamin can help your liver process the alcohol quickly.

Choose organic, sulfite-free red wine

This wine is your best option to drink during these holiday season because it has the least intoxicating effect on your liquor.

Choose Rum, Vodka and other top shelf liquor.

These drinks are generally cleaner than other liquors since they have the least content of added chemicals and fake ingredients.

Choose good quality of mixers.

Be aware that some mixers are full of fake ingredients like tonic water (that contains sugar) and fake flavorings. Make sure that the juices used in the mixers are fresh. Avoid mixing up sodas and energy drinks.

Never drink beer.

Drinking beer is never an option in the fast metabolism diet. It has more carbohydrates that is difficult to digest, thus shutting down your metabolism.

Eat your phased-specific meals before planning on drinking.

Follow the routine of eating every 2-3 hours per day. It is recommended to eat protein-filled meal and snacks before planning on drinking. You can eat meatballs, raw nuts. Protein-filled snacks and meals can help control the delivery of sugar to your bloodstream.

Detoxify your liver.

After drinking from the holiday season, it is important to detoxify your liver from the toxic it digested from the last night. Drink extra water to cleanse your body. You can also cook a cleansing soup (Liver-detox broth) that is great for your liver and adrenals. Drink 1-3 cups thrice (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during the next day.

Fast Metabolism Diet Holiday Tips: Smooth the Way on Holidays without Worries

Holiday Eating is a serious topic to dieting persons. Take Haylie Pomroy’s fast metabolism diet holiday tips on how to smooth the way this holiday without worries . Remember, don’t get stressed with mere words, eat them out!

Fast Metabolism Diet Holiday Tips

Holidays! Food! Holidays = Food. Holidays is to food and vice versa. Holidays are the perfect time to get rid of the stress we had for the past few days, by eating. We might be on a diet but we do not want to restrict ourselves from eating for this special holiday events.  Good thing that we have Haylie Pomroy to give us the fast metabolism diet holiday tips to survive this holiday Season! Read more to know about how you can handle the Christmas and holiday season with ease and without worrying your diet!

  1. Don’t shut your metabolism. Keep it going.

Sometimes, when we think of holidays, they’re all about food. Let’s say tomorrow is Christmas day, and we decide to drown ourselves with hunger tonight to have an empty stomach for the coming big celebration, which is a bad idea. How did it became a bad idea? Well, since you’re hungry, you’re going to eat a lot more than how much your stomach can only intake. You’re torturing your tummy. You should eat five times per day, that includes three healthy meals and two protein-based snacks every day, and keep it going to the holidays. You’re going to be needing this to keep your blood sugar normal and metabolism stable. Just so the holiday foods can be as prepared as you to be thrown in to your stomach without worrying about your metabolism.

2.Be prepared and do not be alarmed that there’s going to be a holiday!

Keep your stress hormones calmed when going to a holiday celebration, but how? By filling your tummy beforehand the right way. It’s just the way it is. And there’s also a fact. You’re going to avoid craving for food if you’re feeding your body the foods it need to keep your metabolism burning!

  1. Ask yourself: To drink or not to drink just one?

Actually, you can just have clear liquors namely rum, vodka and gin since they are cleaner. They contain less chemicals and fake ingredients. BUT, still know that alcohol is VERY dehydrating. Better to drink eight ounces of spring water for every intake of drink. If you couldn’t help yourself drinking wine or liquor, just stick to the organic, sulfire-free wine.

  1. No to beer. I insist.

Considered also as liquid bread, but be reminded that you don’t want to shut your metabolism. It is because beer is about carbohydrates- it has more carbohydrates than wine or liquor. Remain loyal to your banner- “Less carb diet” or strongly “No carb diet”.

  1. Have more of protein-heavy foods.

Eat 10 to 15 grams of protein every two hours. Don’t think that this is exhausting, think that this is for your own body to be prepared from the thought that you’ll be eating a lot. Protein rich foods can be turkey jerky, deviled eggs, hummus and veggies, cold cuts, or shrimp cocktail. Aim this! You’ll be glad that by doing this, your metabolism will be told that it’s time to get into the high gear. Retain to your mind that your body can handle anything as long as your metabolism is ready for it.

  1. Choose homemade sweets more. They are made with love.

Let us count the differences of your goodies bought from stores from my sweets made at home. First, your store-bought goodies are processed and contain many artificial ingredients, while my homemade sweets are healthier and they metabolize faster- and they’re made with love. Right? Second, I think the first one is already enough.

  1. Like Live, Laugh, Love, Mine is Eat, Drink, Be Merry.

When eating, one must accompany it with enjoyment. Know that this releases feel-good endorphins, which in turn signals your thyroid to release fat-burning hormones and also causes the decrease of another hormone- leptin. This turn of healthy hormone chain of events will excite your body to release stored fat for fuel helping you to feel full and keep you to overeat.

Christmas holiday season is meant for us to celebrate and enjoy these occasions. We can’t have ourselves constantly worrying and dreading these events just because it might sabotage our diet. Follow these fast metabolism diet holiday tips and enjoy the holiday season! Merry Christmas to everyone!

What Does Salt Cravings Mean in Our Diet?

Why do we have salt cravings? How does salt cravings affects our fast metabolism diet?

Are you having an unusual salt cravings? Do you find yourself searching for salty foods like potato chips, pretzels? What does salt cravings in the fast metabolism diet mean? Unusual cravings for salt signals your body that you’re not getting enough nutrients in the body that you need. Here are the main reasons why your body is dealing with salt cravings:

salt cravings in fast metabolism diet

A. You don’t have enough fluids in your body

Salt helps stabilizes the electrolytes in our body. Electrolytes help our body lowers our stress level and improve our brain function. If you are having a salt craving, your body is not receiving the exact amount of electrolytes your body needs to survive. Be sure to drink half of your body weight (in ounces) to keep you dehydrated. If possible, drink spring water since it has the best electrolyte value and is full of minerals.

B. Your body is stressed

One alarming message your body is sending to you with your unusual salt craving is that, your body is going through stress. Normally, with a right amount of salt intake it helps soothe your adrenal glands and lowers your stress hormones. But with less salt intake your body is increasing your stress hormonal level. And being in a stressful state is a big No-No in the fast metabolism diet. Stress screw up your metabolism greatly.

How to deal with salt cravings?

  • If you are having these unusual salt cravings, it means that your sodium/potassium balance is off. You need to add more salt in your diet. You can eat potassium rich foods to your meals and snacks like white beans, spinach, acorn squash, artichokes, mushrooms, parsley and cilantro. It will help you get back the electrolytes your body lacks.
  • If you are in Phase 1, you can also eat higher glycemic fruits like pineapple and mango to offer more adrenal support and helps lower your stress level.
  • When you’re cooking your fast metabolism diet meals, you can add a bit more salt to your diet. Try using Celtic salt or Himalayan salt. It has the best electrolyte value and is full of 84 essential minerals. It will keep your hydration and electrolyte balance.
  • If you’re still having a salt craving, try whipping a batch of kale chips. Kale chips are safe to eat at all phases.

With proper amount of salt, it soothes our adrenal glands, lowers our stress and increases our metabolism rate. Our body is more likely to burn fat and transform them into fuel than storing them for emergency purposes. Make sure to settle your salt cravings and don’t let it prevent you from healing your metabolism and in losing weight.

The Fast Metabolism Diet Tips on Attending Restaurants

“How can I resist the temptation of foods being served in the restaurants?” Have you asked this question to yourself a lot of times already? Planning on trips? You can’t bring your kitchen with you, so how do you deal with eating out and clueless what’s on the food served? How do you stay on the diet’s phase knowing that you don’t have total control with the foods served? Tough questions, right?

Attending weddings, birthdays, business conference and the likes is an enjoyable experience, the challenging part is stopping yourself to take a bite of foods that are not allowed on the diet. This feeling causes our stress hormones and anxiety to increase.

fast metabollism diet tips on attending restaurants

Refraining from attending these events while on the fast metabolism diet may seem to be the most appropriate solution, it might not always be the case. We need to come up with a strategic plan to enjoy these restaurant night out evening meals while keeping on track on the fast metabolism diet. Here are the fast metabolism diet tips you can use while eating out on a restaurant:

Before going to the restaurant:

  • It is important to know what restaurant you will attend and their menu first. By doing this you can have the upfront knowledge what are the menus they served from then on you can choose the best meal or snacks that conforms with the diet. Make use of your internet connection and search the restaurant you’re attending.
  • If you are done searching for the restaurant’s information, you can make a call to the restaurant ahead of time (it applies with caterers too). Call them several days before you’ll go into the restaurant, or upon making a reservation you can inquire about the menu. Explain to them that you have some dietary restrictions. If they could, ask for their help if they can make you a special meal. Also make sure to state and explain your reason clearly so that they will be committed in helping you.
  • If you feel fully restricted with the restaurant’s options for you, feel free to canvass other restaurants near your location that could give you more options and can accommodate your dietary restrictions.
  • If you are checking in a hotel, you can check the restaurants near your hotel. Have your mini-bar in your hotel room be cleaned up or you can ask for a small fridge to be brought in. From then you can stock up your fast metabolism diet foods and snacks.
  • If you’re attending in buffets, check out the whole buffet meals first and decide what meal you should eat before making your way through the line.

While in the restaurant

  • Ask the waiter to remove the bread basket on the table to avoid temptation.
  • Bring your own salad dressing with you.
  • You can ask the waiter how their meal was processed and checked the ingredients in their menu. This is to ensure that you’re eating the right foods allowed in fast metabolism diet according to your phase. Was it made without sauces/butter/oil? Or is there any soy, wheat, corn in this meal? If they were serving potatoes, ask for veggies instead. State your reason or that you have a dietary restriction so that the waiters, caterers will answer your question willingly.
  • Bring phase-specific snacks with you. Events typically lasts for a long time, and you will get hungry in an hour or two. In this way you can still be on your phase and avoid eating those crappy snacks displayed on the buffet.
  • You can also bring extras with you like stevita, tamari packets, hot herbal tea, stevita cinnamon gum.

If you follow these tips, you can surely enjoy eating a meal in the restaurant without jeopardizing your fast metabolism diet. You’re not only enjoying a meal outside but you also get to socialize with your friends, family or business colleagues.
