Like the rest of middle America, I am on a quest to eat cleaner.
– To Consume more veggies and more fruits in 2013.
I am not saying it is a “New Year’s Resolution” , because I already eat pretty healthy. And let’s face it, most resolutions don’t last…
- but lifestyle changes do.
Did I tell you that when my friends and I went for lunch the other day we couldn’t find parking spots because there were so many people trying to park at the gym next store?
I hate to say this, but I think by mid February there will be plenty of spaces ;)!
When you make healthy eating taste good, you start to crave it. When you start cutting out the junk and processed food you, crave them less and less. I truly belive you can train your body and your mind to actually prefer healthy eating over unhealthy eating.
Why not start tomorrow morning?
Wake up and tell yourself, “This is going to be a healthy day. I am going to eat healthy today.”
Just giving yourself that affirmation is half the battle. And really, we don’t have anything without our health.
This is your one body.
Here’s What You Do:
Add everything to the blender and blend. Voila! Oh–Add it to a fancy cup and you will feel so much better about eating flax + spinach!
Notes: Skip putting juice into smoothies. It addes unnecessary sugar or if it is a lighter version, some kind of artificial sweetener. Instead opt for ff milk for added calcium..
If you haven’t heard of flax, it’s a wonder food. I suprisingly found this whole flaxseed at Marshalls,but any health food store will have it too. It’s heavy on fiber, Omega-3’s, cancer fighting properties and protein. It lowers LDL cholestrol and helps reduce inflamation.
My kids are not on the smoothie kick yet, but they will be as soon as I start calling them shakes!
