Tuesday’s class started at one of NYC’s many fantastic health food stores, Health Nuts. Natalia walked us through the store and pointed out her favorite products and foods for transitioning detoxers.
While here I picked up a green juice and a bottle of Lemon Stevia which I now can’t imagine living without. It completely transforms my veggie juices and in a pinch it was even amazing in plain water, turning it into a sweet tea like beverage. Not bad when you’re stuck in an airport with limited options!
After class Jen and I met up at Organic Avenue to get to know each other better. I had a super tasty cultured coconut yogurt with blueberries while Jen had a green juice. I found it very fascinating to know that just a couple of years ago Jen had quite severe allergies but since she’s been detoxing they’re hardly noticeable! We heard all sorts of stories like this during the class which was incredibly exciting and inspiring.
Renae, Lola and I decided another trip to Pure Food and Wine was in order, deciding this time to keep it simple with salads and sundae’s. While waiting for our dinner, Lola subtly pointed at the table behind us and whispered “Is that Gil Jacobs??”. Gil Jacobs, for those who don’t know, is a brilliant colon hydrotherapist and someone we all respect and admire immensely. Really, it was like a celebrity sighting. We managed to squeeze in a “hello” and let him know we were a little star struck You know you’re running with an unusual crowd when you all fawn over someone who cleans excess waste out of peoples bums We had an appointment booked with him for that Thursday which was completely unforgettable, I’ll chat about that on Thursdays summary!
