Mr. 3 Hr Diet himself, Jorge Cruise, gave my blog a little shout out this week and I thought that was amazing for him to do! I did the happy dance through my house and had a smile you couldn't wipe off, even if you tried (and some tried that day)!
If Jorge can do that for me, then by gosh I can drink that Bug Juice (yep, that's what I'm going to call it) for the Belly Fat Cure. Yes I can. That same night, he made up a special Prebiotic Vegetable drink that was a serious neon shade of green and looked none too appetizing. But Jorge said that the good bacteria in your gut needs good veggies to feed off of to survive.
Having been a dedicated fan of the Sucralose and Coke Zero for many years, I figure my little bugs are in pretty sad shape. And I believe if you are going to do something you might as well do it right! And the truth is, if I have any little bugs in there left, then they are starving!
The next day I got a tweet from my BFC Twitter Buddy Dave and I went from just thinking about making it, to sticking it all in a blender!
Here is the recipe for Jorge Cruise's Prebiotic Drink aka Bug Juice S/C 0/0 (per Jorge):
2Tbsp Chia Seeds (see below)
1 UnPeeled Cucumber
2 Stalks Celery
handful of Spinach fresh leaves
2 cups water
I drank the first 1/4 none to happily and sat looking into the glass for a bit. It wasnt the taste, so much as the texture. So I added more water and that made all the difference. I also added a very tiny amount of Sun Crystals, like a pinch. It was really not bad at all and I can see having this regularly, if I've been low on my veggie in take.
Just a note on the Chia seeds: I don't know what they are or where to get them and it sparked lots of fun "Cha cha cha Chia!" comments on twitter that day (okay, most of them were my comments). But I do know he added them for fiber. So I added ground Flax Seed which is about the same fiber 4grams for 2 Tbsp. If you don't have either of them, that is fine too. Getting caught up on details like that can sabotage your good intentions.
I was able to find the Chia Seeds on Amazon, you can order them here. Apparently they have lots of great attributes aside from fiber. I can't wait to try them! (They also sell Chia Pets at Amazon)
