Juice Fasting Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy. It is nature's ancient, universal "remedy" for many problems. If one is fasting for health purposes, it makes sense to support our body's needs while we reduce or remove some necessary elements from our diet. The basic elements that we need to remove from our diet for the sake of our health are cooked food and animal products. What is Juice Fasting? A juice fast is a type of detox diet. In addition to promoting the excretion of toxins and decreasing congestive symptoms, juice fasting is believed to have the following benefits: Eliminates most food allergies and sensitivities. Enhances mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Releases pesticides, drugs, and other chemicals from stored fat, which can then be eliminated. Reduces the burden on the digestive system, allowing it to heal. It has less severe withdrawal symptoms than water fast. Enhances natural beauty with glowing skin. Clears mucus discharge.

You hold the key to my heart Valentine Printable Hi! My name is Ashley, and I blog over at Mommy By Day Crafter By Night. I love to craft and sew when my two kids go to bed each night… and then I blog about the things I make. I am so excited to be here at Skip to my Lou to share a fun Valentine gift idea with a free printable to go with it! I came up with this idea because I was trying to think of something cute my my girls to send for Valentines Day to their aunt who is living in Tennessee right now. I love keys, so when I saw these key necklaces I thought it would be cute to send one with a gift tag that said “You Hold the Key to my Heart” tied onto it. I found the gold one with the bangles on it at Forever 21 ($5), the brass looking one at American Eagle ($17), and the silver looking one at American Eagle ($15). Your gift doesn’t necessarily have to be anything “key” related- you could totally just tie this tag onto anything and it would work just fine… I love the way it looks tied with the twine on this cute gift box! xoxo, Ashley
