Helloooooo! It’s been a while! Apologies… it’s been a busy, work-filled, social-butterfly, and a-bit-of-sickiness time. All of which are not conducive to organised, healthy eating. Oh well, I’m human!
Of course, this doesn’t sit well with me. Making choices about the things I spend my time on is tough, as it is for most of us. And recently, I’ve chosen not to spend hours on end in the kitchen preparing the ‘right’ stuff. That’s ok, for a short while, and it obviously has some detrimental effects. I have less energy and my skin is definitely not at it’s best, although that may be something to do with the cold weather arriving. It’s also had a negative effect on my waistline, unsurprisingly. But fortunately it’s winter and time for layers 🙂 So perhaps between now and Christmas I should think a bit more carefully about my choices.
I happened to watch ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead‘ one night recently whilst browsing Netflix. What an inspiring docu-movie. So much so that I bought a juicer! And started reading more about the virtues of juicing. Knowing the paleo ethos, I was curious as to how you gain enough protein, but it turns out that you don’t have to eat meat, fish, eggs and nuts for protein. You can get it in other places, like broccoli, cauliflower and spinach. So that answered that question.
I made my first two juices last week. Joe’s reboot website offers tons of free advice and recipes, and doesn’t try to push people in to one way of living, which as most of us know, tends not to work. So I’m going to give it a go, gradually introducing more nutrient-packed juices in to my daily diet. Particularly at this time of year, when I tend to want to hibernate, a huge dose of vitamins a day can’t do any harm.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you… and some fabulous winter warmer recipes to keep you cosy and healthy over the winter months! Stay warm! 🙂
