Missing this little dude today ❤️
Bump, brews and birth planning.
One of my favourite moments from our wedding - reading the vows we wrote for each other. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I believe in you, the person you will grow to be, and the people we will be together.” ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #BestDayEver
This month is prime time for what’s known, in the industry, as ‘nutribollocks’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brands will be out in force, trying to sell you stuff to “help” you get healthy or lose weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most of the time, this is crap you really don’t need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For example, any product that claims to alkalise your body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your body doesn’t need help doing this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It does it all by itself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And if it didn’t? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’d be dead. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, certain parts of your body, like your stomach, need to be acidic to work properly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Double bullshit. 🐄 💩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s the same with anything that claims to detox the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your liver is detoxing your body ALL THE TIME. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Without any help. It’s just what it does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So you don’t need to do anything special - or buy any expensive teas or tinctures - to detox from the excess of Christmas and New Year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There’s no need to restrict or punish yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just get back to your normal routine, and your body will happily take care of the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to read more of my myth-busting… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or jump in on my alternative New Year challenge… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Join my Facebook group to learn how you can make some simple changes that benefit your health all year long. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The link to join is in my bio: @bexxhenderson ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not a bottle of alkaline water in sight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Promise. 😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. I made this pea, ham and mint soup today. It was tasty AF. Thanks for the recipe @jamieoliver! 👌🏻
