Lately, I've been so busy with school and work that I rarely ever stay at home anymore. Out of the week I'm probably home about 2-3 nights. My home feels like a strange place to me now. With that also comes the lack of routine and lack of normalized meals schedule. For the past month all I've been doing is eating out and also eating random things at work. As a result my energy levels have been lagging. I realized how bad this was...
In an attempt to normalize my meals and meal schedule and increase my energy I got an industrial strength VitaMix blender. For the last week or so I've been taking raw veggies and fruits and coconut water and blending it into a smoothie/juice. This last week I was blending the following:
- 1 apple
- 1 orange
- 1 stalk of celery
- blueberries and raspberries
- 1 small baby bok choy
- 6-10 baby carrots
- a handful of broccoli
- 1 banana
- maybe a quarter cup of coconut water or just water
Although not a scientific journal this blog discusses benefits of blending vs juicing. http://alpha-health-plus.com/BLENDING_VS_JUICING_2.html
I hope this inspires you to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your own diet!
Oh yeah and on a random note, I had a reader ask that I write a mini series on investments. Look for that come in the upcoming weeks.
