Sunshine-In-a-Jar using Integral Collagen

Over the past 3 years I have been doing some serious changing of bad habits to good habits for my well-being. A few of my changes are to:
-No more aspirin! (I was taking about 3 daily for common aches&pains) I am no longer using any over the counter medications and now exclusively use certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils and I’m not going back. I literally use them 365 days a year! 
-Drink more pure water!
-Consume very little sugar and avoid high fructose corn syrup like a poison.
-Delete corn and white potatoes from my meals.
-Center each meal around a good protein source.
-Space meals every 3 hours.
-Never eat after 8 p.m. in the evenings.
I am working on more changes but change comes slow and I want to form new good habits so starting slow & keeping steady.

Since I no longer consume southern sweet tea (rewind 5 years ago I literally never drank anything but sweet tea for my liquid intake! so I’ve come a long way!). I also avoid fruit juices as it is pretty much liquid sugar. New found love: I now ADORE this beverage I make and drink at least a few times a week, sometimes daily. It is similar to the Singing Canary Recipe circulated within the Trim Healthy Mamas. I wasn’t exactly fond of that beverage even though I could get it down the hatch. This one…I LOVE….I CRAVE…and it is SO GOOD for ME! So here it is for you…ENJOY a sip of sunshine!

1 cup pure water in a blender carafe
1/2 tsp. turmeric
8 pkts. true lemon ( I use this for convenience as I don’t always have fresh lemons in my frig...you can easily use juice from a freshly squeezed lemon)
1 T. Gentle Sweet Blend (THM)
1 scoop Integral Collagen (THM) (same as 4 tsp.)
(read here for another way I love to get my daily intake of collagen)
1/8 t. celtic salt
1 T MCT oil
1/2 t. pure Vitamin C (read about what "pure" vitamin C really is - here)
8 drops wild orange oil EO

Blend all til frothy. Then fill a clean quart glass jar with ice cubes. Pour mixture over and fill to the top with pure water. Stir and sip with a straw! It makes every day SUNNY!
