I wanted to share some tips with you for when you a
re really busy but still want to eat healthy, because it makes you feel GREAT
to keep eating healthy, right?!
And we aren’t going to let “being busy” stop us from feeling great, right?!
Well, I have some tips for ya on what you can eat to stay healthy when
you are busy!
.So fast, just pour some coconut water, rice milk or hemp milk into the
blender, then throw in your fruits AND some veggies(spinach, cucumber,
romaine lettuce, just to name a few).
Add some protein if you like (hemp seed or chia seed, or maybe a scoop
of hemp protein powder) and some healthy fats (avocado, coconut milk.
or the proteins I mentioned before which also have you covered on the
healthy-fat front!). For extra flavor, add some vanilla extract or dash of
Immune Boost Smoothie
1 ½ cups dairy free milk
1 cup kale
½ cup parsley
½ red pepper
1 tablespoon ginger root
5 drops stevia or 1 teaspoon honey
Chop up a bunch of lettuce – romaine or red leaf – an
d add some spinach. Pile on some other veggies – tomatoes,
cucumbers, carrots, radishes, sliced beets, bell peppers, onions..
whatever you like. Add some protein. Choose pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds,
cooked organic chicken breast, kidney beans, sprouts, a hard-boiled egg,
salmon or tuna. Make a quick dressing with stone-ground mustard,
olive oil, and a couple sprays of Bragg’s Amino Acids (or just a bit of sea salt if you don’t have
Bragg’s or can’t find it). Toss it all together and eat.
If you chop the veggies in bulk you can make a couple salads at a time,
don’t add the dressing to them yet, and they usually last a couple days.
Simple Detox Salad - serves 2
2 cups arugula or greens of your choice (dandelion,
endive are great for spring detoxing)
½ cup red onions, sliced thin
1 cucumber, chopped
½ cup carrot, chopped
¼ cup radish, sliced thin
1 avocado, cubed
Juice from one lemon
Sea salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup of sunflower seeds
Chop vegetables and mix in a large bowl. Top salad with
avocado and sunflower seeds. Drizzle with lemon juice and
sprinkle with sea salt, pepper.
Know where you can get healthy take -out
This could be from a nearby restaurant (I love my local Vietnamese
restaurant and it’s really close and inexpensive) or you could find a place
like Snap Kitchen in Austin, Texas, which I recently explored and am now
in love with. They prepare healthy food to go. I stopped by this morning
and picked up a couple dishes to tide me over the next few days. They
have organic and locally-sourced produce, organic chicken, and free-
range grass-fed beef and bison. Their portions will keep you on track but
you can also get a medium or large size meal if you want to have extra
leftovers. No, it’s not quite as cheap as buying and preparing
it yourself, but if you are a busy person (OR you just don’t enjoy cooking)
and would just spend the money on junky fast food or pizza delivery, the
n it’s a much better value. It’s always the small habits that add up. Don’t let
yourself fall back into old habits that cause you to not feel so great! I’d love
to hear from you, too:
