HCG Diet Recipe – 8 Calorie Lemon Slushy

This is delicious!!!  But don’t take my word for it- go try it out yourself!  It feels like your having dessert on the hCG diet when in reality, you are mostly just eating ice and water. 

hCG Diet Phase 2 Lemon Slushie – just 8 Calories

LEMON JUICE (USUALLY 1/2 LEMON-1 LEMON’S WORTH)
1/3 CUP WATER
7-9 ICE CUBES
STEVIA TO TASTE (ORGANIC STEVIA IS BEST MOST NATURAL TASTE)

All you do is blend it up all together- the stevia in it is what will create the great thick, frothy texture.  If you don’t use stevia the texture would not be nearly as pleasant.  I know the recipe is so simple that it might be like, why are you making  a recipe for that?  But honestly, that’s the very reason I needed to make it!  It had never occurred to me that i could make something tasty to eat that was so simple with only 2 ingredients aside from water until I was desperate for something “yummy” on p2 of the Bettabods hCG Diet Protocol.

Foods that boost your immune system #2

Button Mushrooms

They give you the mineral selenium and the B vitamins riboflavin and niacin. That helps you in several ways. If you’re low on selenium, you may be more likely to get a more severe flu. Riboflavin and niacin play a role in a healthy immune system.

Mushrooms have been used for thousands of years by traditional Eastern healers, but Western medicine has only recently begun to recognize their power. Now, even the National Institutes of Health and the pharmaceutical industry are acknowledging the astonishing properties that mushrooms

Much of the focus on mushroom health benefits and healing has been reserved for exotic and lesser-known mushrooms such as reishi, turkey tail, lion’s mane, and others.
But the 900 million pounds of mushrooms Americans consume each year are mostly of the Agaricus bisporus variety, which includes regular white mushrooms (button, closed cup, open cup, and large flat) and brown mushrooms (also called chestnut, champignon marron, crimini, and portobello).

Exciting new research shows that the common Agaricus bisporus mushrooms have extraordinary curative powers, as well
