The Quantum Leap


After a hectic weekend of just not feeling my best, I've decided to start the Quantum Wellness Cleanse. I don't really want to think of it as a complete detox per se, but it's more of a fresh outlook on food and conscious eating (that of course benefits the skin). This revelation (like many) came very late at night, as I watched tivo'd episodes of Oprah in an effort to get some sleep. A lady by the name of Kathy Freston was a guest on her show, and she talked about how to eat consciously. I assumed I was an expert at this. I've been organic for a handful of years now, and I definitely drove everyone crazy when I was on the conscious digestion kick (also read: chew every bite 20 times, while staring creepily at the person you're dining with for the course of 20 minutes). Well this one was different, and it's described in her book Quantum Wellness. She's real into the vegan thing, which I've never been too keen on. It would just take so many recipe options out of my life. But I've been known to be more extreme about such things, so I decided to give this one a try. One look at her skin, and you'll know why. It was all in the marketing, and the packaging that her skin was boasting was enough to make me a believer.

So here's how it works: nada on the meat, caffeine, sugar, dairy and gluten for 21 days. This is intended to jump start your system into new healthy highs, lead you to think twice about where your food comes from, and how your body responds to the different things that we grow accustomed to putting in it. I have to say, it has already given me a challenge (just ask if you need recipe ideas). Immediately (and at this point I hadn't even started!), I began craving a caramel-filled drumstick ice cream cone. But it's day 3, and I'm going oh-so-strong. There haven't been any post-eating stomach aches, and I can sense my skin is glowing already. What wouldn't I do in the name of beauty? Very few things...
