5 day Mini Cleanse!

180 Kick Start Detox Intro

While I can’t participate in this detox right now due to the little baby growing in my belly, Stan is a very good candidate. We both started out the year doing the Shaklee 180 Turnaround program and were very successful.

Here is Stan’s before and after. He lost close to 30lbs and 16 inches!!

Stan 180 Before and After

During the summer we cut back to just one smoothee a day and were able to maintain our weight loss. Now that I am pregnant, I rely on my morning smoothee to get me through the day! Stan also has one for breakfast, but is planning on starting the full 180 Turnaround kit again in December. This detox is the perfect kick start to his next weight loss phase!

Not to mention, who doesn’t need a detox after Thanksgiving?? We will be enjoying THREE meals and I know there will be a lot of pumpkin pie and turkey over-indulgence. Instead of packing on a few pounds and then packing on a few more come Christmas, wouldn’t it feel great to LOSE weight during the holidays?

Who’s in?? Get all the details below and let me know if you are doing it to so I can add you our private Facebook group for support and inspiration!

Crockpot Applesauce

crockpot applesauce

I grew up always eating homemade applesauce. Grandma’s pantry is always full of jars of fruit she has canned and she loves to share. While visiting her earlier this fall, she opened a jar to serve during lunch. I gave some to Liam and he was in LOVE. The whole jar was gone by the end of the weekend. Lucky for Liam, she sent a few jars home with us. But…they were soon gone too.

I decided I would have to make some myself, couldn't be that difficult, right? I picked up a BIG bag of Organic Fuji apples at Greenbluff while we were getting pumpkins in October. But then they sat on the counter, untouched, for a few weeks. I realized, I didn’t really know HOW to make applesauce. I never asked Grandma. After a quick phone call, I realized this was probably a lot easier than I had realized.

30 min in the morning before work and less than an hour that evening, and I had 4 jars of homemade applesauce. I know it will not last long…maybe Grandma will have more to share at Thanksgiving.

Next fall I better get a few boxes of apples and make a dozen jars!

First thing you need to do is wash your apples. Mine were actually pretty dirty since they had come straight from the farm…and not the store.


I soaked them in my produce wash (few drops of Basic H and a sink full of water) and then rinsed them off with clean water. Pealed, cored and then coarsely chopped.


Threw them into my largest crockpot. Sprinkled with cinnamon. Turned the crockpot onto LOW.




When I retuned home that evening (at least 10 hours later), the house smelled amazing. The apples were soft and just needed less than a minute with the potato smasher.



I got my canner ready. Washed some jars. Let them sit in the boiling water for 5 min to sanitize (if you have a dishwasher you could just run a quick cycle). Filled them with the hot applesauce. Secured the lid and ring and them processed them in the canner for 20 min.


Easy peasy!

Now I have 4 pints of organic, sugar free, applesauce. When Liam asks for more…I know he is not loading up on processed sugar and crap.


Do you ever make applesauce? What is your favorite recipe?
