Eating Clean August – Day 5 – August 7th

Ok…so i may have fallen off the wagon a tad…

The day started off well with a sugar free hazelnut latte and 2 vegan, gluten and sugar free treats from the farmers market.  Later in the day i snacked on Bean Boy hummus, raw vegetable crackers from Organic Lives, and strawberries from the market.

Everyone loves strawberries.

Then Josie came over with some organic wine and everything went off the rails after we each drank half the bottle…before dinner.  We went to a mexican restaurant where we succumbed to our weakness for tequila, which led to margaritas.  Whoops.  Oh well, at least my drunken before bed snack was Falafel Chips which are totally organic, and super duper healthy.  At least there’s that.

And there’s this:

Health Benefits of Tequila:

*Tequila dissolves fat and has been shown to reduce bad cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol.

*In small to moderate amounts, it is a heart healthy drink.

*When you are feeling stressed, one shot of tequila can help you relax.

*According to Tequila Health, if you drink a small glass of tequila after eating your dinner, it helps you digest your food faster.

*Tequila Health also says that drinking moderate amounts of tequila can help reduce your chances of getting dementia in later years.

I have no idea where the website i found this on got the info (what’s Tequila Health?  I couldn’t find it) but let’s just assume it’s all true.  And we’re not even thinking about the health benefits of the lime 😉
