We're ready to start CAN CAN'ing in LA! Wooohooo! My kitchen team and I are so, so excited! Yesterday and today we set the kitchen a buzz as we tested and sampled juices. Yum! We will be in the kitchen on Monday preparing 1- 2- 3- 4- 5-day cleanses for Tuesday, September 3rd - our official Day #1! We cannot wait to meet our first LA clients. Please help us spread the word around LA. Thank you!
Shortly after the New Year, I got a text from my dear college friend, "When's CAN CAN LA opening?" I smiled and laughed out loud. There had been a lot of thoughts (and dreams) and even more client inquries about CAN CAN expansion, but 2012 had been a year of personal growth ~ my son arrived! He was 6 months old at the time I received the text and the thought of opening another CAN CAN? Was I ready for that?
You are what you eat. Y'all have heard that one before, no? With many more couples facing the challenge of conceiving (babies truly are life's most precious gifts), diet and healthy lifestyle are two huge factors that you can improve to boost your fertility. Eating the right foods are super important when you're preparing to make a baby - for both woman & man. What are the right foods? Good question. Emily Wade Adams, founder of Natal Nutrition, dear friend and CAN CAN Cleanse blog contributor, has launched a brand new 14-Day Prep Program called Priming the Bump.
Have you seen the news? Recently, Yale researchers identified a high-salt diet as a potential factor for autoimmune diseases like MS, asthma and eczema. It seems that every day, more and more research like this emerges, supporting the notion that most illnesses - even those with a genetic factor - are preventable with proper diet and lifestyle.
Watermelon. Raspberries. Zucchini. Tomatoes. Summer's gardens are a veritable bounty of mouth-watering fruit & vegetables, bursting with flavor and nutrients. But now that we can get these foods year-round, why should we bother stocking up on them now? Eating seasonally is one of the pillars of designing a healthy diet, and for good reason. Nature provides the nutrients we need exactly when we need them to ensure optimal health. Before we were able to enjoy peaches in February, we had a very limited time to indulge in these delicious sweets. And, guess what? We didn't suffer as many preventable health problems as we do today.
