March #SOL16 Day 30
I finally found a way to eat my fruits and vegetables. I drink them!
I haven’t always been so healthy. I am working against a life time of bad eating habits. When I was young, from about the age of 7 through 12, I loved to swim. I worked up such an appetite from a full day of swimming, I would come home and eat a whole bag of Doritos and M & M’s. I devoured anything I could get my hands on….none of it was healthy.
Those habits weren’t a total disaster for me back then because I was so active. Fast forward to adulthood, and I just can’t consume all those calories anymore. Something had to give. Yet, it still took me some time to figure it all out. I continued to be a junkfoodaholic, maybe just not so blatant as to ingest an entire bag of carbs and sugar and other crap in one sitting. Then finally…..
I discovered the Nutribullet. I found that I could put oranges, bananas, spinach and pineapple together in this wondrous machine and voila! A creamy, frothy drink that tasted good and filled me up. Not only did I immediately drop some pounds, but I haven’t gotten a cold or the flu since the day I received my blender in the mail (from my beloved QVC) two years ago.
Now I have fun experimenting with different homegrown recipes. I’ve tried organic carrots – leafy stems and all – along with cucumbers, apples, kiwi and grapes. Mixing it up is what keeps it interesting and tasty. I look forward to going to the grocery store and exploring the produce aisles. Coming from this junkfoodaholic that is quite the statement!
