What do you think? What has helped you most to lose those unwanted pounds? For me I can honestly tell you that only working out a lot did NOT do it for me. For me, it has been about changing what I choose to eat. How about you?
How many people do you know that have been diagnosed with cancer? If we were sitting down together right now I could probably talk to you for hours about the people I personally know that have been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is everywhere and effecting so many of us. What are you doing to reduce your risk? Wearing sunscreen, exercising, not smoking? But, is your diet helping to reduce your chances?
I have a new favorite book. This book takes a look at the foods we eat and how our body digests them. The title of the book is what initially caught my eye, The Beauty Detox Solution. The premise of the book focuses on eating your way to beautiful younger looking body. Who doesn’t want a younger looking body??
One of the tips is to drink a green smoothie every morning. I started this a couple months ago and feel GREAT!!! It’s very easy and will ensure that you are getting the recommended fruits and veggies each day. Try it out!
Take out your blender…
1 cup water
Greens: choose whatever greens you have, kale, spinach, lettuce, etc. I just through a whole bunch in the blender.
Fruits: to sweeten it up add an apple and a pear or peach, or whatever fruit you have at home.
Drink this first thing in the morning while your stomach is empty. This will allow your body to get the best absorption to start off your day great.
I know it sounds yucky to many of you, but it is very nutritious and full of fiber. It’s an easy way to get your needed fruits and veggies.
Let us know if you tried and and what you think about it!!!
