Absolutely Bootea'ful



Today I enjoyed my last cup of BOOTEA, the two week 'teatox' that allows you to eat some of what you still love while cutting out the bad bits - mainly meat. That was the challenge for me, as a meat lover like the rest of my family I found it hard to completely cut out all of it so I still ate skinless chicken but got rid of all red meat - I was dreaming of steak for a while at the start. This means you are completely cleansed of all toxins that are found in beef, lamb, sausages etc and after 14 days without it I feel a lot better, both physically and mentally. In the 14 day tea pack you are provided with a two week daytime tea and a one week night time one, the night tea is a laxative so you only take this one every other day, and it really does work!! While the taste isn't anything spectacular it is nice and I found it easy to get into a tea routine.

I had previously done the detox but didn't really take a lot of notice to the eating plan they provide for you so didn't see much of a difference. This time I did pay close attention to it and found myself losing a couple of inches from waist and thighs and my stomach being a lot less bloated. I haven't added any photos of the transformation as, in my case, it was more mentally rewarding. The reason for the detox was for me to try and sleep better and become more active during the day. I can say the detox definitely works for this, I am more alert (as you may tell in my recent blog posts) and I also wake up a lot earlier (about 7:30 am) and no longer feel like I need a nap come 5 o'clock.

Some of the food I enjoyed most on the eating plan were the fish dishes - already a huge fan of fish I found different ways to cook it and teamed it with food I wouldn't normally have picked therefore producing new exciting flavours. My favourite concoction though was my wholemeal pitta pizzas I created; with feta cheese, tomatoes, pesto, red pepper and spinach I found these even tastier than normal pizzas!

Have you tried a detox before or thinking of trying this one? Let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    1. Absolutely, but you'll really see any change if you stick to the eating plan. But it's not as hard as I thought it would be xo
