1150933_10200280511682965_2029710490_nThis was such a HUGE hit with the family that I had to share with everyone! 🙂 It was easy and SO good!

Shrimp & Sausage Boil

1 bag Zatarain’s Crab Boil Bag
2lb small red potatoes
2 onions, peeled and quartered
2 pork sausages, cut into 2-3 inch pieces
4 ears of corn, cut in half
2 lbs shrimp
Old Bay Seasoning

In a large pan, combine water and boil bag, then bring water to a boil. This needs to be a very large pan. If you don’t have one, split all the ingredients into 2 separate pans and purchase an extra boil bag. Once water is boiling, add potatoes. Bring back to a boil and boil for about 5 minutes, then add sausage and onion. Cook for 20 minutes, then add corn. Once corn has been in the pan for 10 minutes, add shrimp. Continue to cook everything together for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, then spread on large platter. Once food is on a platter, lightly sprinkle with Old Bay Seasoning.

Benefits of Doing a Seasonal Cleanse

Mexican Winter StewA lot of us hear the word cleanse but we have no idea why we should do one? There are a lot of benefits to cleansing. Here are a few:

  • Boost your immune system to prevent illnesses such as the flu, cold, etc.
  • Boost your mood, energy, and productivity by clearing your mind.
  • Shed excess weight!

To cleanse the body is to remove toxic environmental & dietary substances with the application of a healthier lifestyle. The food we eat on a regular basis can cause our bodies to have a reaction such as headaches, irritability, inflammation, obesity, and more. A cleanse allows our body to get some rest from every day stresses and help heal our body. Our bodies already eliminate waste through the colon, liver, kidneys, etc. But this detox is meant to boost all aspects of your body’s natural detoxification system, giving it the extra boost it occasionally needs.

The foods that we eat can cause illness, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and more. Luckily with the Elite Health Coaching Seasonal Detoxes, they are easy to follow and will give you exact instructions on what to eat, what to buy, and more along with unlimited email support! Cleanses can be done to help you get back on track to healthy eating, lose a little bit of weight, or just boost your overall mood. By doing a cleanse during each season of the year, 4 times total, you can stay on track and really get in touch with the seasonal foods that surround you to help keep you grounded. If you aren’t sure if a cleanse is right for you, contact me at sadie@elitehealthcoaching.com.
