This book – Pooja Mottl’s The 3-Day Reset – arrived just in time for the Freeman Family! Moving into our new home with a lovely gourmet kitchen, just blocks from an awesome whole foods farmers market and with a baby about to self-wean, we have more incentive than ever before to indulge in a whole and minimally processed foods diet!
The last two months (or so) we’ve been on the run, on the go, on the road, and living out of suitcases while we moved from Florida to California. We’re actually, uh, STILL living out of suitcases – and off of convenience foods – at the moment. But the sluggishness, extra pounds, and ill health that comes with the lifestyle of living on processed foods is finally catching up to us, and we are more excited than ever to launch into these exciting three day challenges!
We’re in a unique position to stock up our empty refrigerator and empty cupboards with nothing but healthy, nourishing and WHOLE foods. And that is what this book is all about! This isn’t a diet book, it’s a book about REAL FOOD. Whether you are an avid foodie, a health junkie, or just getting started into the world of food and nutrition, this book is a must read!

Check out these exclusive healthy eating tips from The 3-Day Reset “Sugar Reset”:
Chapter (Pages 43-66):
1) Beware of the various names that “ADDED SUGARS” masquerade under on ingredient lists. Here are some that commonly pop-up on a broad range of packaged, bottled, and boxed foods and beverages:
• Corn-syrup solids
• Crystalline fructose
• Evaporated cane juice
• Fruit juice concentrates
2) Don’t forget that added sugars aren’t just in sweet foods and drinks, they can also be found in a broad range of savory foods such as cured meats, almond milk, ketchup, tomato sauce, and chicken broth. Attached is an infographic to help guide you when you’re grocery shopping!
3) Try to eat whole, unrefined sources of sweetness, in moderation, about 80% of the time. The best sources for healthy sweetness are:
• Whole, ripe, fresh fruits
• Dried fruits and vegetables such as dates, pineapple, and tomatoes
• Raw, unpasteurized honey
• 100% maple syrup
• Whole dried cane sugar or coconut palm sugar granulated crystals
