Did you Fall off the NYR Wagon?

Have you fallen off the wagon? The New Years Resolution I’m going to lose X amount of pounds and be a health freak and NEVER drink or have a latte wagon is the one I’m referring to…the problem with diets is once you “mess up” you’re like oh well might as well eat this whole bag of Cheetos or order dessert while I’m at it. But you don’t have to wait till Monday or the first of the month or a new year to make good choices! So you had a few too many at dinner or couldn’t resist that cake…forgive yourself and move on. Make your next choice a healthy one! Stop punishing yourself for not following a diet perfectly or for anything really. FORGIVE YOURSELF! If you can forgive your loser ex I think that bag of M&M’s can slide for real…SO that’s why I’m focusing on things to ADD to your diet or to your life instead of things to get rid of! Once you start adding these things you’ll want the bad things less and less because they’ll actually start making you FEEL GOOD! Crazy right? Trust me I’m the Yoyo diet queen and I’m even telling you to stop it! Haha So here are my “adds” with the amazing benefits they have for you!

  1. Glowing Green Smoothie

    Glowing-Green-Smoothie
    This is Kimberly Snyder’s recipe, she’s a nutritionist for a ton of celebrities and I LOVE her. I make her low sugar version which is basically the same but I leave out the pear and banana and add liquid Stevia instead. I add a few more things…but those are all below and I’ll talk about them individually. I haven’t been consistent with this yet…but that’s the goal…to have this for breakfast every day or, at least, most days. What are the benefits? (PS – I’m stealing all of this information from her books)
    -Spinach: Youthful Skin
    +Beta-carotene = Converts to Vitamin A (anti-aging)
    +Lipoic Acid = Helps oxidant vitamin C and E regenerate (maintain                                        youthful skin)
    +Phytonutrients = Powerful antioxidants protections against free radicals
    +Non-heme Iron = Carries oxygen to all blood cells and makes you glow
    -Apples: Weight Loss and Improved Eyesite
    +Pectin = Lowers cholesterol and stabilizes blood sugar levels
    +Insolubale Fiber = Cleanse your colon (clean blood and improved eyes)
    +Insolubale Fiber = Very Filling (Control weight and calorie intake)
    -Celery: Flush out extra body fluids,  anti-inflammatory, calming, detoxifier
    +Balanced Potassium and Sodium = Flush out extra body fluids, reducing                            puffiness
    +Alkaline Minerals = Helps lower blood pressure, relaxes muscles, Calming
    +Natural Laxative = Detox
    -Romaine Lettuce: Antioxidants (Keep your body moving)
    +Antixodiants = Rid the body of free radicals
    +Fiber + Vitamins = Keeps cholesterol from oxidizing
    +Folate + Potassium = Regulate blood pressure

    Kim Snyder’s quote on the GGS being a long-term fat-burner:
    “It is an amazing long-term fat-burner because it combines fresh fruits and vegetables with a bevy of fiber, phytonutrients, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes that help flush out the pollutants and toxins stored in your fat cells. The large amounts of greens you’re getting in this one smoothie are blended, so they’re easy to for your body to absorb. You can get more greens with this one smoothie than several salads put together (and without having to use any dressing), and this smoothie is incredibly alkalizing.”

    “A 1999 study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that green tea extract rich in catechins has thermogenic properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by the tea’s caffeine content.It was found that consuming green tea increased thermogenesis (the body’s rate of burning calories) from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure. Another study demonstrated that exercising immediately after drinking matcha green tea resulted in 25% more fat burning during exercise.”
