Happy Tuesday everybody! I hope you are all doing well on this April day!
I know, you've been told over and over again to eat leafy green vegetables, but seriously these cheap goodies are SO GOOD for your body!
Thy have So many vitimins and calcium and some even have a bit of protein! I love to eat big salads to get in my leafy greens. If salads aren't for you, do you know that you can't taste spinach or kale in your smoothies?
I know, it sounds weird to mix vegetables in with berries and yummy sweet ingredients, but I PROMISE you can't taste them! You are getting all of the vitimins without the heap of lettuce on your plate!
Eat more greens, you'll feel cleaner inside and out!
Things have been crazy for us with the arrival of spring! Do you find that when the season changes things start to get super busy?
Anyways, we have an awesome healthy spring recipe for you today: Green Smoothie
1 handful of strawberries
3 Tbs of chia seeds
2 Tbs of flax seeds
2 cups of almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
1 handful of spinach
A bit of ice
Blend all of these together and voila! You have a super healthy power lunch or breakfast! You can exchange any of these ingredients for different fruit or dairy! Have fun with it! Believe it or not you can't taste the spinach!! Trust me!!!
You know what Tuesday means...blog time! This month is all about health and fitness! Now that you've taken stock of how you are feeling and how you want to feel, are you ready to dive headfirst into spring?
Set a goal for yourself! Do you want to eat better, exercise more, lose weight, learn more about nutrition, go outside more often etc etc!
You might be thinking that you want all of these goals, but it's important to start small and give yourself a chance to kick butt and succeed!
Pick your challenge and length of time. Maybe you want to eat better on the weekends or maybe you want to work out daily for the month of April.
The important thing is to make your goal as clear as possible and COMMIT to it. Just for a month! We'll be right here by your side!
Welcome to April! The month of fitness & health in ECHO land!
You guys know by now that I like to start with the basics at the beginning! I want you sit wherever you are and take a moment and ask yourself:
How am I feeling right now?
Take stock of your body. I dont mean how you look, I mean how your body feels. Does anything hurt? Does any part of you feel really good? Do you feel light or heavy? Do you feel clear or clouded? Do you feel full or empty? Is your skin and hair oily or dry?
To start, observe yourself. Write it down!
You guys know I'm big in writing things down, I think it solidifies our ideas and makes them feel real.
