It's time to talk about food. I don't love the word "diet." I do love the idea of changing the way you eat. I'm all for trying new things and finding what works for you!
This year, I'm starting a new nutrition discipline. Nothing crazy, but I've just decided to be more mindful of what I'm putting into my body. I'll go out to eat a meal on the weekends but always pack a healthy lunch for work and eat rather healthy dinners too. My weakness has always been sweets. More specifically, chocolate. Sigh...
So, all of that is changing - starting now! Byebye chocolate :( Hello healthy lifestyle!
I'm filling my "diet" with even more fruits and veggies and protein. AND, the best part of it all, I'll be having one green smoothie a day!
The first green smoothie I made about a year ago was a disaster. I accidentally bought mustard greens at the store instead of kale. Not recommended. Talk about a spicy smoothie!
Great source of vitamins and minerals!
You'll have more energy!
Rich in fiber and easy to digest!
Low in calories but high in awesome nutrients!
Cleanses and detoxifies!
Boosts your immune system and mental performance!
And those are just a few of the benefits! I started my green smoothie-ing yesterday and I'll be keeping track of how I'm feeling all week. While eating super healthy, I'll also be making more of a constant effort to drink as much water as I can!
I have this Thermos Intak water bottle that I've adored ever since the day I bought it. I love the way the water flows out of it AND the little notch on the side allows me to keep track of how many times I've filled up. I admit, I've challenged myself many times to see how often I could fill it up. It keeps things fun :)
If you're trying to drink more water throughout the day, I highly recommend getting a water bottle to keep with you at work to refill throughout the day. Plus, it's better than using regular plastic water bottles! Keep the Earth clean, my friends :)
So, here's a recap:
No more sweets
Fruits and veggies galore
Protein via Greek yogurt, egg whites, etc.
Green Smoothie Machine!
