I’ve been thinking a lot about health issues in the past year, and actually doing
lots of a few healthy things for myself, with the help of some professionals (and nonprofessionals).
And I did run a 5K without going to the hospital! Maybe a few of these things could help you to feel better, too, or at least not feel worse.
So, I’m adding this series, “Shiny Coat,” (get it?? dogs…shiny coat…hey, it could have been “Wet Nose!”) here at Let the dog in! to include tidbits on health, food, exercise, and all those
detestable things I never cared about 20 years ago in the tequila bar things you may also be beginning to think about. Maybe we can swap good ideas, lament the bad ones and formulate some new, awesome ones!
To kick this off, let’s talk smoothies!
I detoxed last spring on a whole foods type diet, no wheat, corn, dairy, sugar, alcohol, etc. I know, right? What’s left? Well,
nothing good a fair amount, just basically nothing processed. I could spend a whole month discussing the ins and outs of that whole scene, and maybe later I will. I’ll probably detox again this summer.
Sure, you start with normal stuff, yogurt (I use the soy or coconut milk kind), frozen fruit, protein powder, juice, but next thing you know you’re adding nut butters, fish oil, crushed flaxseeds, rice milk, cooked beets, tofu, and maybe even greens!
And you’ll like it!
Which is good because no one in your family will want it.
But you should start small, with baby steps. There’s plenty of time to go crazy later.
