21 day cleanse – Shopping List – Start Monday/Tuesday

Happy Sunday Everyone,

As I mentioned earlier in the week I’m gonna do another 21 day cleanse.  Below is the shopping list instructions and you can start whenever you want Monday or Tuesday this week is when I’m digging down.  BTW – this can be a modified cleanse go as strict or long as you want and/or can.  If you have a fridge full of food use that up first and start a few days later.  We don’t want anyone wasting food.  lori tauraso, urablankslate, lori tauraso youtube, 21 day cleanse, detox, fasting, the dc bloggers, bytdc, maryland farms, over fifty, gut health, tauraso food group, black hog bbq, dry run ranch, magnolia table,

Here are some parameters for this cleanse.   I feel you should stick hard and fast to see the best results.

  • NO ALCOHOL PERIOD NOT A GLASS, SHOT, MUG… ZERO ZIP NADA
  • NO PROCESSED SUGARS
  • NO EATING PAST 6 PM OTHER THAN WATER, GREEN TEA (CAFFEINE FREE WITH NO SUGAR) OR HOT LEMON WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT.
  • EAT AT 9 AM. UNTIL THEN ONLY BLACK COFFEE (HOT OR ICED), HOT LEMON WATER, OR GREEN TEA.  

WHY BECAUSE WE ARE DOING A BIT OF INTERMITTENT FASTING.  ONCE YOU HAVE ANY SOLID FOODS, DAIRY, SUGAR ETC. YOU BREAK THE FAST. We want our bodies to get into a bit of ketosis.

  • MOVE EVERY DAY FOR A MIN OF 30 MIN. Whatever your health level is – preferably outside to get those fall sunlight healing rays which will enhance your mood.  Be prepared to go through some kind of withdrawal.  If you drink alcohol daily this may be tough but stick with me you will really feel great.  If you are looking to stop smoking could be a good time to do both and maybe even shift focus from the smoking part of it.

The night eating of cereal or sweets is gonna be hard for me and morning no sugar or coffee mate in my morning cup is gonna be a killer I cannot lie.

Listen if you need to ease into this fine take a few days to slowly eliminate but when you are ready commi=ttothe 21 days in a row.

I will update the shopping list as I can but here is a start.  I shop often but maybe you can not again this is just what I am doing and I’d love you to join me.  Use what you have or feel makes sense for you and your life and family.  Do it with a partner – just do something.  21 day cleanse, detox, lori tauraso, jennifer gularson, the dc bloggers, blank slate, lori tauraso you tube, dc magazine, clean eating, loriannmd, Comment & Share your recipes, feelings, etc.  I will be having some facebook and insta live along the way and hoping to get some friends to join me with their expertise.

Remember I am not a doctor or expert in any way at all.  Just a woman who is fifty and feeling sluggish and need to get gut health back on track cuz if that’s good the world is good over here at the Tauraso’s

If your concerned – please check with your doctor to see if this is right for you.

I will be updating on my instastories.  To be fair I may really start hardcore Tuesday because I have some food to use up here in the house one being the green tomatoes that I am gonna try my hand at fried green tomatoes 🍅 for the first time and don’t want to waste these heirloom beauties.

Etiquette – Do You Mind You Manners…….

I have always loved learning about manners and trying to abide by them in my life ( not always able to do achieve it but that is the goal.  There was always an air about a lady who carried herself with style, grace, and always good manners.

lori tauraso, modern manners, emily post, etiquette, the plazza,

I think in this day and age it seems to be a lost art.  Not as important anymore to people or overlooked and for me that could not be further from the truth.  The impact can be profound and make or break a situation for you and your brand/business.

I believe in Thank You cards or notes ( not just a text).  I mean receiving a lovely written note ( does not have to belong) means so much and that person stands out to me for sure.

I believe in holding the door for ladies and especially the elderly

Saying please and thank you

Bringing a gift when you go to someone’s home – a bottle of wine….. flowers (already in a vase so the hostess/ host does not have to fuss with them).

Not cussing in public or really at all especially for women – I know that may sound old fashioned just my opinion – it takes away from your message if you have to cuss and be crass to make your point.

Taking the time to learn another culture when in that environment.  It is a respectful way to treat people and cultures and you will be surprised at the pleasure you bring someone with even the smallest gestures of learning “thank you” in the native language.

Silencing your phone when dining or in public shared spaces.  I have always wanted to put a phone booth inside our restaurants for customers to make their call cool right? lori tauraso, modern manners, emily post, etiquette, the plazza, cell phone manners,

Not being on your phone while going through a check outline. People are there working (unless self CK out) be kind make eye contact – and besides NO ONE wants to hear your conversation.

Not checking your phone while in a conversation with someone – how rude – they are speaking and clearly not important to you because you don’t even pay attention.  If need be step outside to take your call or excuse yourself from the table at the very least.

Teaching your children proper table manners and etiquette as a whole – whole subject on this.  I suggest this book… I also used to take my children to upscale hotels & restaurants.  Talk with the manager and say I am trying to teach manners to treat my oldest who was maybe 5 at the time like the man of the table – explain how and why we do things.  It was a lot of fun we usually just got dessert and tea but they got the idea and highly recommend it.lori tauraso, modern manners, emily post, etiquette, the plazza, tiffany table manners, manners, etiquette, home schooling ideas, home ec, dc magazine, urablankslate, lori tauraso, blank slate blog, tauraso food group, dry run ranch, black hog bbq, visit frederick, eau resort palm beach, visit maryland, sass magazine frederick, huffington post, washingtonian magazine, travel and leisure,

This could be considered “home ec” class during this time of COVID and homeschooling I would think.  Please think about it – incorporate all your fine china get dressed up and sit around the table and pretend its a “fancy party”.  However, Mike and I have found that more and more establishments do not adhere to manners either they don’t know have not been taught or just don’t care.  Like seating the women first, laying menu at her place setting after she is sat than the man.  Pulling our HER chair.  Taking the order for the women oldest to youngest its insane.  (hate it)!

When all this COVID stuff settles down I am enrolling in the Beaumont Etiquette School It is a modern etiquette school/course that is made for our times and is easy.

lori tauraso, modern manners, emily post, etiquette, the plazza, beaumont etiquette course,

I found her on YouTube several years back and she had a course at The Plaza NYC.  I know I can hold my own but there are certain nuances that I would love to know so as not to make a faux pas especially when entertain and traveling.  There is a big difference here then in Europe and I want to be “that girl” in the know.  Elegant and classy in all situations (well almost – LOL).  It is not cheap but something I feel will last a lifetime and build more confidence in social situations for myself and you if you decide to do something like this too.  Whether you like it or not your manners, speech, and appearance makes a difference and people notice.  This could also mean the difference fo getting a job or being passed up.  Just saying.

I also collect etiquette books one of my first was Letitia Baldrige’s book you see below that I have had since 1993!  It has been so helpful to me through the years and now that there is YouTube you can watch videos online and take courses but I love these books. lori tauraso, modern manners, emily post, etiquette, the plazza,

So are manners and etiquette important to you?  Do you feel it is a dying art?  Do you guide your children/grandchildren on proper manners esp. in public spaces?  Comment below I’m really interested in your feedback.

Have a wonderful Sunday – I look forward to reading your comments.
