This morning, while making my fruit and green breakfast smoothie, it occurred to me that it would be a good addition to the Healthy Living Tips section of the website!It has been quite a while since John and I disembarked from the good ship “SAD” (aka Standard American Diet). I still like my share of junk food, and am certainly not an extremist – but more and more, we find ourselves just eating higher quality foods, and less and less of low-quality and “dead” foods.
We just feel better when we incorporate more “live” foods into our lifestyle.
So, these days we tend to make a lot more use of our good ol’ Vita-Mix that we’ve had for years (compliments of my Dad – Thanks Dad!). We have become VERY fond of our smoothies.
Have a look at the article, and watch our video – where I make our breakfast fruit and green smoothie right before your very eyes!
When it comes to healthy living tips, by now, I’m guessing that most people know and understand the benefits of adding more raw veggies to their diets. This is not a blog about health foods. I’m not here to debate the pros and cons of any specific diet or lifestyle.
What I DO want to say is that I look at the whole “self development” field holistically. That is, I don’t believe that self development is JUST about improving professional performance, or JUST about becoming a “better” person, or JUST about one thing or another.
I look at self development as encompassing all parts of life – I like the idea of improving life on every level I can think of. And that means professionally, socially, materially, physically, spiritually – you get the idea!
One area that I’m especially interested in is healthy foods and healthy eating. If something in cooking and eating can contribute positively to my overall health and well-being, I’m interested!
So, I got to thinking about some recipes and ideas that I could add to my “Healthy Living Tips” section here at my blog, and decided to add some of my favorites here. Then, one thing led to another, and I wound up making a video for you as well – It’s all in my article with my Recipe for Red Cabbage Salad!
