Good morning dearest friends!
How have you been? How were your Summer vacations-if you are in the Northern Hemisphere? How was your Winter- if you are in the South?
We had a slow, beautiful Summer here in Cyprus, where we took the time to just enjoy it in all its glory. My mother has been visiting us from Argentina, and we got to celebrate both her birthday (for the first time in 10 years) and that of our kids (for the first time ever) together, and it was wonderful. Having family around for the first time, made us want to savor the days more, to take the time to do things, to not do much, to take it slow. During these past months we spent Saturdays at the swimming pool and Sundays at the beach. We started teaching Luka and Zoe how to swim. We planted seeds in the nearby park and watered them every day. We studied the stars, made an asteroid with salt and jelly, and played with store-bought alien slime. We ran after butterflies, baked donuts, and ate way more ice cream than we probably should have. We learned new songs and laughed at the same old books. We woke up early and went to bed late. We found a school for Luka and Zoe. We checked our goals, we made new plans. And even though Summer tends to linger in Cyprus for quite a while, the proximity of the school year is suggesting that, regardless of the weather, it is now time to say goodbye.
And because saying goodbye to the leisurely days of Summer is always a bit hard, we thought it could be a good idea to add a bit of zing to the last days before the runny noses season begins, give our health a boost and get back in shape. Which is why we have decided to bring back..The Happy Detox Breakfast Challenge!
5 days of breakfast goodness, 6 delicious recipes, a fun-loving community determined to cheer you on and all our support to make this an enjoyable experience. Who wouldn’t want that?!
Imagine this: You wake up every day knowing what you will have for breakfast. All ingredients have already been purchased, because you had a shopping list prepared ahead of time. You have recipes supervised by a certified nutritionist-so you know that they are good for you. Preparation takes less than 10 minutes and you think to yourself “Wow that was easy!” You feel a tingle of excitement in your belly before taking the first bite (a new recipe! will you like it??), then take a leap of faith, put it in your mouth and you can’t believe how much you love it. You quickly snap a photo with your cell phone before it’s all gone, so that you can share it later with your fellow detoxers. You feel energized all morning and you notice that, almost miraculously, all those cravings you used to have for sugar, coffee and chocolate have vanished. In fact, you feel SO WELL, that you start to choose -and enjoy- healthy foods for the rest of the meals. No more energy lows for you in the middle of the day, oh no! As days go by you start to feel sharper, lighter- and more adventurous. You try new recipes, you switch ingredients. Breakfast is now your favorite meal of the day!
Wouldn’t that make you happy?
So if you are ready to ditch the ice cream and be happier and more energetic than a toddler on Christmas day, join the challenge! And because we all fancy like that, and had so much people join us the last time, you can read everything about the challenge and sign up in The Happy Detox own website!
If you did the challenge the last time, worry not, you don’t need to sign up before. We will send you the new, updated shopping list tomorrow, so that you have plenty of time to prepare, as well as the link to the private group. Then, next week, you will start receiving the emails.
Go, go sign up now! Registration closes on Sunday 31st of August at 12:00pm GMT+2 with no exceptions. This is a live program and, in order for you to make the most of it, you need to be prepared. We believe we would be doing you a disservice if we accepted you to sign up late, and we wouldn’t do that to you.
We look so much forward to adventuring into healthy breakfast land with you!
