Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a huge food junkie

 

but I’m sure all of you can relate, as you get older, your metabolism isn’t quite the same at 25 as it was when you were 18. A weekend of hardcore drinking and dining out can really take a toll on your body the following week.

As ironic as it sounds, taking a day to myself to be lazy and catch up Netflix documentaries actually led me to get my diet back on the healthy track.

I don’t expect everyone to completely change their life-style for the sake of being healthy, but I gaurantee that if you implement at least some of the steps in the action plan below, you’ll not only feel healthier, lose weight but also have a lot more energy to continue to do what you love.

Seems intimidating? Don’t know where to start?  Try this:

  1. Go to your local farmers market.
    1. Buy locally grown fruits and veggies: Kale, Spinach, Carrots, Broccoli, Apples, Strawberries, Chia Seeds.
  2. Buy a Juicer. Not to be confused with a Blender. Juicing maintains the nutrients without all the access waste.
  3. Experiment! Make it fun. Test out different recipes.

 

Here’s one that’s quick and easy, yet effective.
