Earlier this year, I had a lot of deficiencies when it came to nutrients in my body. This was due to stress, illness, and poor nutrition. Many times when we are being of services to others, we forget about ourselves. I’ve been through this journey first hand and let me tell you the full wakeup call was this past January.
Leaving the doctor with a handful of prescriptions I knew something had to change. In the past I would go to the pharmacy for myself maybe once every two years, if that. When I walked up earlier this year, the pharmacist thought they were for my Mom as I am her functional care taker. I shared they were for me, and I realized the change had to start at that time.
When it is time to make to make a change, it is important to be mindful and start slow. Any positive change takes time and it is not a temporary fix, you want to make it a part of your lifestyle. I knew I needed to be healthy again, I also knew that it took me some time to fall off so I had to be gentle with myself to get back on track.
I started with incorporating green smoothies into my diet again. I use both fresh fruits and vegetables and the powder form. I was recently introduced to Genesis Today super food brand. When I am busy or on the go I use their Green Powder along with fruit and some ice to make a delicious smoothie. The product has about 70 land and sea plants and super foods to help support your daily nutritional needs and an alkaline-balanced diet. The power mixed well with the fruit and it was delicious. My energy levels were consistently throughout the day and I didn’t have the urge to snack at all. I will use this product again when I need to supplement my leafy greens in my smoothie.
Here is the recipe.
1 Scoop of Genesis Today Greens
1 Cup Strawberries
1 handful of ice
Mix all ingredients in a blender, VitaMix, or NutriBullet.
