This went on for months.
All of the kids in the nursery seemed to have birthdays over the summer, one after another, and our kids got invited to all of them.
Of course our kids loved it.
The best party we went to, we all got to hold animals such as snakes, lizards, and spiders.

I was always in two minds. On one hand I was thinking, noooooo please don’t eat that stuff. And on the other hand I was thinking, it’s not happening for every meal. Every child needs an occasional treat.
And I do agree, that all children need a treat. But what that treat consists of is another matter. I don’t want to deprive them of having cakes and sweeties. But I’d much rather they had healthier versions of those foods if they are going to eat them.
I feel the same way about myself. I need the occasional treat too.
What about you?
How often do you treat yourself?
Do you feel deprived on a diet without a regular treat?
I know I do.
Which is why I built weekend treats into The Leaf System meal plans.
On Saturday and Sunday, the calories of the meals are reduced on purpose so that you can either replace one of the meals with a treat meal, or you can eat the smaller meals and add in your own treat of around 250 calories.
Because I don’t want you to feel deprived as this is a long term meal plan.
It’s a forever eating plan, and that means focusing on healthy clean food most of the time, but never depriving ourselves so we can stick to this way of eating in the long term.
The Leaf System is my weight loss system where you get monthly calorie counted healthy meal plans based on green smoothies for breakfast and an abundance of delicious meals made from real food.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
