Beans Beans the musical fruit...

I'm loving life. I love the detox tea and how it starts my day off in a healthy way. I've grown to love it. I'm a tea drinker naturally, so I love the quirky flavors that a tea bag can deliver when soaked in hot H2O, so the unique flavor of Arbonne's Detox Tea was welcomed to my [new] morning routine. I'm loving it.

I'm loving sharing this program with people too. It's so unique in allowing you to eat a healthy meal, whichever you prefer, while still gaining all the benefits from the fit kit. I'm feeling healthier and I know my innards are thanking me a few times a day (hehe)!!! It's natural and good for you...pooping that is. I know you're probably thinking, OMG AMY, did you just blog "poop"! But yep, it's an epidemic that I'm not part of...constipation, that is. This program is amazing for your outer appearance, your inner functions and just an amazing way of life!

My new love-find has been beans and legumes...these mighty small packages are loaded with fiber, protein and a plethora of other great health benefits! Keli found this Black Bean and Corn salad on our handy dandy G, D, D-free website "sister"... I'm making it again for the second time. I double everything because I have a big eater on my hands (not me, Brandon) and a single batch just won't last a day! I'm going to try adding a red onion for a little more Mexican zest!
