30 Day Jumpstart

30 Day Jumpstart

I am so excited to finally share The Eat.Drink.Pure 30 Day Jumpstart  with you all!

The premise is simple. Eat whole foods e.g. fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Take out the bad (processed junk)  bring in the good (healing anti inflammatory foods, herbs and spices) and get moving at least 30 minutes a day. This can mean any physical activity. You can do yoga, running, walking, weight training etc. but do it you must, for 30 minutes every day. That’s it. 30 days of keeping to this lifestyle is bound to heal you of so many common issues.

I may have been a tad over confident because as tech savvy as I thought I was, my presentation for the little ones didn’t work! I winged it of course, and survived to tell the story but here are a few lessons I learnt from speaking to the young:
