How to get the most out of this lesson:

1. This week, choose a gratitude ritual that you feel inclined to, perhaps one from the worksheet, and incorporate that into meal time. Share it on the Facebook group.

2. If you struggle with digestive symptoms, or feel ‘toxic’ take a closer look at how the poor food combinations show up in your meals.  Make a shift.

3. Check out your tongue each morning in the mirror.  Try a tongue scraper. The surface of your tongue shows you more about your state of digestion.

3. Dare you to post a pic of your tongue on Facebook!
