Bored with Water?

Lemon Water CHHC

Bored with Water? Boost Your Daily Intake with Fruit-Infused H2O! “Drink more water” – It’s a statement you probably hear constantly from doctors, health coaches, sports team coaches, advertisements, and even mom and dad. But how much water are you really supposed to drink and how can you make doing so a bit easier? Frankly, water isn’t everyone’s first choice in beverages, but it should be. Water accounts for nearly 60% of your body composition and is essential for growth and regeneration of every cell in your body. Without proper hydration, your body won’t work properly.

Proper hydration supports the following major health benefits:

• Prevents dry mouth, lips, and throat

• Keeps the body cool

• Improves muscle and joint function

• Helps you lose weight o As your body is cleansed with water, your body sheds waste which leaves you looking and feeling lighter.

• Cleanses toxins from your body

[udesign_icon_font name=”fa fa-hand-o-right” color=”#dd3333″] Shedding toxins gives you more energy, improves mental health and functioning, and gives you better skin and hair. Bonus! You will glow! Using certain fruits, herbs, and flowers takes the benefits of hydration to a whole new level.

[udesign_icon_font name=”fa fa-angellist” color=”#dd3333″] Infused water benefits include:

• Heightened metabolism

• Enhanced digestive functioning

• Improved immune system functioning (recuperate faster from illness and workouts

• Additional energy boosts and mood enhancements

So how much should you drink? Half your body weight in ounces. You read that right. It’s no secret that it’s difficult for many people to drink the necessary amount of water because it can be pretty boring at times. It isn’t as sexy as drinking a glass of wine and it doesn’t have the flavor a soda or sugary drink offers. And yes, while fizzy drinks are fun, it is so important that we limit the amount of sugars and artificial ingredients we put into our bodies. Thankfully, there are easy ways to make your water more interesting, flavorful, and packed full of health benefits. Still not a believer? Read on!

My favorite way to spice up my water intake is with fruit-infused water! Fruit-infused water is a great alternative to its soda counterparts while still being FUN. The main difference is, fruit-infused water is going to leave you feeling fresh and most importantly—HYDRATED! Almost every top massage and spa place I have been to serves fruit, herb, and flower-infused water. Can’t wait to get started? Try this delicious and refreshing recipe! It’s one of my favorites!

Detox Watermelon Recipe

32 ounces of water 4 cubes fresh watermelon 6 leaves cilantro (cilantro helps with detoxification)

In a 1-liter pitcher, place the fruit and cilantro at the bottom and add water until full. Cover the top of the pitcher and let sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to let the fruit seep into the water. The mixture should keep for two days.

The following are some other combination recommendations:

– Orange, lemon, and ginger (improves immune system and blood circulation) – Cucumber, raspberry, and grape (beats inflammation and fights cancer)

– Rhubarb, apple, and cinnamon (amplifies metabolism) – Strawberry and lime (boosts anti-aging) – Pineapple and mint (relieves joint pain and supports digestive system)

How to Avoid Fast Food when you are on the GO!!!

How to avoid a fast food joint when

on the go and hungry

I get asked this question ALL THE TIME! With teenage twins, a fast a paced business and a boat load of travel, I figured out, there is always a solution. Keep it simple works every time and be prepared!!!

This weekend we drove up to Quantico for the Warrior Games. Elijah and I are coaches for a Marine Wounded Warrior that qualified, so we packed up the kids, and the coolers… In our cooler for the 4hr ride and 2 day trip in a hotel room were:

Sliced Watermelon, Grapes, Bing Cherries, Sliced Cucumbers, Carrots, Cherry Tomatoes, Guacamole, Blue Corn Chips/ Salsa, Hard Boiled Eggs, Bananas, green juice, smoothies and Herbal Heal All Tea. Everyone was satisfied, energized and taken care of! We went out to dinner once and then had light lunch at the games on Sunday. We had plenty of nutrient density left over in our cooler for the ride home too…

Well, I am sure at one time or another we have all found ourselves on the drive thru line, starving, and craving some food that will provide a solution to that crazy grumbling sound in our bellies. So, we go for something quick and fast. It also doesn’t help that each town has at least one to two or even more fast food joints to offer some quick yet unhealthy options for us. How do we avoid this? How can we avoid being that hungry, craving, cranky, and in a need of a fast fix person who has lost all control for healthy determination? Well, it is much simpler than you’d think.

The real fast food, before corporations built these multi-million dollar unhealthy options for us, was good old-fashioned fruits and veggies. Imagine that! Fruits and veggies should always be the number one option, and they are sold everywhere we turn as well, although they don’t usually have a drive thru. So, if it is about convenience then we need to prepare ahead of time. If we pack snacks and quick foods to go in our purse or brief case then we will always have a fast food option that aligns with having a healthy determination.

I suggest packing apples, bananas, oranges, and even some healthy homemade trail mix! My kids love Trail mix and they give it 2 thumbs up as a  favorite go-to snack when we are on the go. I put some seeds, raisins, cacao nibs and dried fruit like cranberries in a little Ziploc back or plastic Tupperware container. It is always there and it doesn’t fail us. It also quick to prepare and if I make a bunch of it I can take little servings for a couple days so it lasts.

Super easy, super delicious and it keeps us out of the danger zone…

I ALWAYS ALSO have a stash of my favorite raw dark chocolate tucked away…

 

The best way to avoid fast food joints while on the go is to always make sure you have a fast food option in your purse.

Hey ladies & GENTS!

My name is Clarissa, and I’m a certified holistic health coach, detox specialists and digestive wellness mama on a mission.. how about you?

I created this program because I was sick and tired of being sick and tired and sick of being on the  diet roller coaster ride… AGAIn, How about you?

So often, we eat foods that we think are healthy because the label tricks us, because the magazines say so, because the diet books say so, but they are actually causing us embarrassing gas while on a steamy date, uncomfortable bloating while we try to squeeze into a slim dress, and inflammation that can actually be painful. I know I’m FED UP, are you?

” Clarissa’s programs are fabulous!!! We hit the ground running and I haven’t looked back since, I do private 1:1 health holistic  coaching with Clarissa so I get all her programs included in my cost every.. NO BRAINER, BIG VALUE!!! I feel better than I have in years, my belly bloat went down IMMEDIATELY and my digestive wellness, energy and sleep patterns improved from the very beginning, PLUS HER RECIPES ARE DELICIOUS I love it!!  Love you Clarissa thank you!!!

 The Spring Detox Program is about discovering what works for YOU and YOUR unique body. No more guessing. No more hopping on and off of different diet roller coasters, and no more frustration because nothing seems to work. Say hello to tapping into your unique body blueprint which will give you limitless wisdom on which foods will love your body back.

Did you know: Your body is carrying roughly 5-10 pounds of toxicity (a.k.a inflammation) at any given time. Which means that headache, bloated belly, or that extra weight that’s staying on? Yep. Probably toxicity.

Here are some of the results you can expect on the program:

  • Lose an average of 3-5 pounds in one week – naturally!
  • Feel lighter and have tons of energy – take the dance floor by storm!
  • Kick sugar cravings to the curb – learn how to enjoy healthy sweets!
  • Sleep peacefully through the night – no more dark circles under those eyes!
  • Decrease inflammation – and feel amazing in the buff!
  • Get ready for bikini season – with confidence that could kill!

 

All of this is possible WITHOUT dieting and deprivation. Can I get a “KALE YEAH!!!”?

“So I just have to say that I feel amazing!!! I’m more comfortable with my body then I have been in years!!! I’m more energized, and happy!!! And it’s all Because of the wonderful program by Clarissa Kussin!!! It’s so great to not be counting calories and obsessed with diets!!! I ditched the diet at the door and I haven’t looked back, iv eliminated some foods out of my everyday eating and replaced them with plant based nutrition!!! It’s also been easier for me to exercise!! I was kinda nervous ab doing all of this at first but so far so good, I love it!! Love you Clarissa thank you!!!” Megan- Pensacola, Florida

 So, what’s the magic behind the scenes?

Well, for starters, we’re working with an elimination diet. But don’t let the word “diet” throw you off! The elimination diet is about removing potential trigger foods so you can see which foods your body reacts to and which don’t cause any reaction at all when you add them back in during the transition phase.

You’ll receive all of these life changing goodies as part of your program:

Your investment in yourself is only $129

What makes this program different?

First, it’s not a diet, so there’s no one telling you what to eat. Instead, it’s all about listening to your body.

Second, this ReFresh is based on the elimination diet, so you’re working with a proven, three-prong approach used by functional medicine doctors and world-class nutrition experts. I’ve just broken it down for you so that doing the elimination diet is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Third, there are no pills, powders, or shakes as part of this program. That means you don’t have to buy any fancy supplements to make it work. You can find everything you need in your local grocery or health food store.

Why ReFresh?

Wild Rose College of Natural Healing defines detoxing as “clearing out toxins and debris in your body that may be stopping you from having vitality.” That’s what we’re up to here. We’re focusing on releasing the toxins in your body through whole foods and simple actions that you easily add to your daily routine to make detoxification a breeze.

I know this program is perfect for you if…

  • You’re ready to ditch the diet and figure out what ACTUALLY works for you
  • You’re ready to kiss the belly bloat that’s been lingering
  • You want more energy so you can enjoy your life more without feeling tired
  • You want to look and feel younger without the botox and caffeine
  • You want to jumpstart your metabolism and enjoy a night out on the town
  • You want to balance your blood sugar and kick cravings to the curb
