Mostly about how hard it can be to break old habits and start new ones.
One new and positive habit I have been completely consistent about is my daily green drink.
I use it as a way of making sure I get in 2 -3 servings of fruit, a good dose of greens and some healthy EFA's.
And I have noticed some great benefits to including this green drink into my daily routine.
- I am much less likely to get really hungry during the day.
- I don't feel the pressure of I HAVE to have a green salad at some point in the day. I will have one if I feel like it but it is nice to depend on a salad for my portion of greens.
- I am noticing that since I started this habit, I have been sleeping much better (and yes, that was before I got the air purifier).
Today's green drink included:
1 1/2 cups of diced canteloupe
1 peach, pitted and chopped
1 handful of red raspberries
1 tsp. of Udo's oil
1 tsp. of coconut butter
1 scoop of Amazing Grass berry flavor
1/2 tsp. of brewers yeast
Other things that I try to rotate in on a regular basis are yogurt, chlorella, bee pollen and raw honey.
And since I got my big dose of greens, fruits and EFA's in my drink I could eat exactly what I wanted for lunch.
