I hate to say it, but I think I was on banana overload. So I decided to switch it up a bit this morning and opted for a summery oatmeal recipe! Breakfast is my most favorite meal, because you can mix and match so many ingredients in so many different ways, especially in oatmeal and smoothie recipes. Wouldn't you agree?
I told you a while back about my cleansing experience with my naturaopathic doctor and all the supplements he recommended for me to take and foods to eat to help with imbalances in my body that were causing me to gain weight in my mid-section (like many women) and have horrible outbreaks of tonsillitis. I've really seen improvement! Its kind of crazy to experience how healing natural medicine is first hand! After my liver/gallbladder flush and coffee enema regime my digestive system is completely healed. I went into his office yesterday and asked why I never feel full anymore, and he told me its because I'm actually digesting my food properly when it enters my system. It no longer sits in my stomach and weighs me down with a full sensation. Which I have to say is kind of crazy, but I also don't feel hungry at the same time, so its not like I want to eat all day. I remember feeling bloated and having stinging stomach pains by the end of almost every day this time last year, and not knowing why, because I thought I was eating a "healthy" diet. But now, the significant improvements I've experience first hand, surpass anything I could have imagined, and its just getting better!
Also, because of the gallbladder/ liver flushes and coffee enemas, I've gotten rid of most of the antibiotic residue that was left in my system from over the past 5 years. And I was taking a lot of antibiotics to heal my tonsillitis. This not only has improved my digestion but has also allowed my hormones to become more balanced and I can now lose weight more easily around my mid section. I used to work out like crazy not knowing why I could shed pounds everywhere else but not mu mid-section! Now I know why, and it feels so great to not have to stress about working out and see improvements in my body! I will be doing more coffee enemas and one more flush to improve this even more, and can't wait!
I use a lot of Premier Research Labs products, and highly recommend their probiotics. They aren't processed and are vegan and gluten-free. Their products are as pure as they come, and extremely healing.
This recipe reminds me of blueberry pie. Its filled with sweet blueberries, and the lemon juice and rind add the perfect amount of tartness. The shredded coconut adds a creaminess and nice bite to this recipe. The toppings really bring the oatmeal together!
Hope you all are having a great healing summer!
