I’ve been gone for a long time from blogging. Life gets busy, ya know? Anyway, I’ve started to find my way back, and I have some fun things to share.
After many late nights of infomercials, I was finally persuaded to purchase a Nutribullet. (I got mine at Target, not on TV, but I believe it’s the same product.) I love it. It’s simple to use, easy to clean, and I’ve been eating veggies that I never would have touched in real life.
Carrots? Check (yeah, I hate carrots)
OK, so the chard isn’t much of a stretch. I chop it up and use it in omelettes. But still, it feels good to be eating more veggies, and it feels really good to be eating them raw to retain the nutrients.
I wouldn’t call what I’m doing as “juicing” since technically I’m eating(drinking) the pulp and ground up veggie matter. Which is one of the things that drew me to the Nutribullet in the first place… no pulp waste. Lots of nutrition in the leftover bits. My drinks end up about the consistency of a runny smoothie, which is fine with me.
I’m not being paid to endorse the Nutribullet, so this product review is totally honest. I just like it a lot.
Anyway… my friend sent me a link to Joe Cross and his movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead the other day, and I finally gave it a watch. It was great motivation to see how Joe, Phil, and the other people featured in the video changed their lives through juicing. And damn you, Netflix queue, you recommend so many great films! I then watched Hungry For Change, which discusses the processed food epidemic in our country. I probably could spend my whole day watching documentaries.
Another great change I’ve made since we last spoke… I started CrossFit. If you’re not familiar with CrossFit, you can find more information here. I needed some type of workout, and I typically loathe gyms with all the sexy people prancing around, but my CrossFit gym is full of great people and caring trainers. Love it so far, except I’m sore as hell! I guess what takes 15 years to put on won’t come off overnight, eh?
Anyway, I just want to say that I’m going to try to keep up with the blog more often. I’m super-excited that Spring is coming. I am so sick of cold yucky weather. If you have any good juice recipes, please post them in the comments.
