Doable Change: Create a Smoothie Lifestyle

Doable Change: Create a Smoothie Lifestyle
“Remember that every single green drink you create is an investment in your quality of life — now and always.” - Kris Carr, Crazy Sexy Juice

It is no secret that I LOVE smoothies!

Here is the deal. I do not love to cook by nature. I have figured out how to find joy in the kitchen because I love to feel good, and I discovered that what I eat can make me feel great or pretty bad. The think about smoothies is they are a fast and yummy way to get my fruits and veggies, super foods, and hydration.

I use smoothies to start the day off well, during the 3pm slump instead of coffee or a cookie, and before going out.

Because the food is blended, I feel it differently, and it is so much easier to digest!

Smoothies are a great tool for a family trying to live a healthy and vibrant life. I want to make sure you have the resources you need to make this change in your life.

In order to make this a lifestyle change, my suggestion is just to focus on this one thing for a week. Commit to a smoothie lifestyle, plan for it, prep for it, and have fun fitting smoothies into you days in different ways.

At the end of a week, you will have some new smoothie practices, and hopefully feel great!

    Here are some things you might consider:

    •  Look up some great recipes. There are recipes in the FREE SMOOTHIE PLANNING PACKET, and our friends at Simple Green Smoothies have some great ideas.
    • Designate a day of the week where smoothies will be the family snack.
    • Designate a day of the week where you will send a smoothie to school.
    • Create your own morning green smoothie practice.
    • Build your pantry with smoothie ingredients.
    • Build your freezer with smoothie ingredients.
    • Find a friend and swop smoothies throughout the week. Accountability is a great thing when trying to create a new habit!
    • Buy straws, to-go cups, ball jars or thermoses to make drinking smoothies more portable or fun.
    • Find a protein powder you love. Remember to make sure it is whole food vs. isolated protein. I love Juice Plus Complete.
    • Get a high-speed blender. Here is a link for a refurbished 5200 with free shipping… which is what I recommend.
    • Don’t have the funds for a high-speed blender? Create a Vitamix plan. Can you set money aside each month? Is there someone (or a group of people) who always get you gifts you don’t use… can they help?
