So, how are you suppose to keep an eye out for healthy labels if you have no idea how to distinguish the difference between it and a normal label? Well--hopefully this label language guide will help you really understand what it means to be truly:
  • Fat Free
  • Calorie Free

  • Light/Lite
  • Sodium Free

Motivational Monday

We get it. You are on a journey which means you will be going through a world wind of changes. You are reshaping your mind, your body, and your soul. However, that doesn't mean you have to loose who you are completely. This is a self-improvement kind of journey. Remember who you are because its so easy to get lost in worrying about who you should be. But we know who you really should be and that's your self. 

Everyone's journey is custom made. Yours will be different and that's perfectly fine. In fact, its wonderful.
Glo & I share two completely different journeys and we also still remember to be ourselves. 

Now its your turn!

Daisy's Detox Menu Plan

Hey ladies! If your experiencing that new season lag in your weight loss and are looking for something to jump start your metabolism, I volunteer to share my second detox menu with you.  Now I want to point out that the calorie intake is significantly low but it is made up for the amount of protein you are taking in.  Yes it is low in points plus but you are receiving a great amount of nutrients and therefore will sustain hunger and feel full despite the amount of calories. Remember this only meant to shock the body temporarily not permanently. Do not abuse, matter fact here are the rules below.

Detox Do's:
  • Drink plenty of water and always remain hydrated
  • Indulge in unlimited fruits and vegetables if hunger strikes (which it shouldn't as this is a low fat high protein rich meal plan)
  • Eat when you are hungry do not deprive yourself
  • Designate your emergency snacks (keep them high in protein and low fat) such as: nuts, blueberries, granola, popcorn, etc.
  • Constantly eat in between meals as suggested
  • Customize this meal plan to fit you: swap out certain fruits for your favorites and etc.
Detox Don'ts:
  • Do not skip out on detox meals
  • Do not limit your carb intake significantly 
  • Do not substitute dairy for fruits, you need your daily dairy requirements as well!
  • Do not turn this into a how long can I go without eating meal plan
  • Do not make this a permanent meal plan! 
  • Do not exercise viciously, keep it to a low impact workout like a walk. If you are burning these calories your body will surely got into starvation mode and that is dangerous for you and your health!
  • Limit to one week or every other week do not repeat consecutively 

Good luck and do tell us how it works for you!

Product Review: The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle Cheese Wedge

Hey ladies! I thought I would share a quick review on a great little food product that I cannot live without now. I decided to try The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle Cheese Wedge! It is spreadable cheese wedge that tastes amazing. I usually stick to the french onion flavor but something told me to try something new. 

I love this new flavor! It is absolutely delicious. I love pairing it with ritz crackers, using it as a dip for carrots,  sandwiches, and even throwing it in omelets for a spicy taste. I think its the perfect cross between queso dip and cheese. It is extremely creamy and so low fat. All I'm saying is give it a try, you won't regret it either.

If you are wondering what's so great about it, just take a peak at the nutrition facts:

Pros: It is perfect for a quick snack and it adds such a pop of flavor. It's only 35 calories, that means 1 Points Plus value in WW terms!
Cons: It's a bit pricey at about $3-4.  But it lasts a while depending on how much you eat. However, when there are sales, you bets believe I am almost always racking up!


It's also available in a variety of different flavors, how about that!

I give this product an A+
