I made it through another week, and what a week it has been!

My goal for last week was to drink more water, and I certainly accomplished that. I also took the advice of my wellness coach Heather Pierce, and added peppermint oil to my water. Wow! An explosion of taste with every sip, even better than flavored seltzer and so much less expensive. I am headed back to Whole Foods this week to see what other natural extracts might be just as appealing. So thank you Heather for yet another terrific suggestion.

I wrote last week that every Friday I will share another of the 13 suggestions Clean Living magazine makes for eating and living clean. Last week, it was to drink at least two liters of water a day. Done!

This week, I'm getting label savvy. Clean foods contain just one or two ingredients. Any product with a long ingredient list is human-made and not considered clean.

Perfect timing, since today I hit the market. Now all I have to do is remember to bring my glasses!


  1. I was at Shop Rite and saw that they carry Paul Newman's Lime Dressing. I'm trying Jorge Cruise's diet starting next Monday. It actually looks reasonable. Of course it could be the fact you're allowed a 5 oz. glass of red wine every now and again. My weaknesses are many. (sigh)

  2. Love that dressing! When I see it, I buy three bottles. I cannot believe Stop & Shop stopped carrying it.
    I've never heard of Jorge Cruise's diet. I'll check it out. And a 5 oz. glass of wine can be a real pick-me-up in the middle of a diet! Or should I say eating plan....
