You have to allow yourself to start with small changes. No one starts off being excellent. Just choose one thing that seems doable to you and do that! Maybe you think you could start dinner every night with a green salad, and then eat normally for the rest of the meal. Maybe you could start every morning with a green smoothie, then eat normally for the rest of the day. Maybe you could make one day a week meatless/vegan or make one meal a day be only raw fruits and vegetables. Maybe you could replace your nightly gigantic bowl of ice cream (who, me?) with this cold, creamy, HEALTHY strawberry peach nicecream (banana ice cream). Whatever healthy choices you can live with for the long term, commit to it and don’t give up! You can always build on those choices later when you’re ready.
strawberry peach nicecream
- 2 frozen bananas, in chunks
- 1 peach, peeled
- 4-5 strawberries
- sweetener of your choice (stevia, coconut sugar, medjool dates, etc)
- dash of cinnamon, optional
Blend everything in a high-speed blender or a bullet blender. Sometimes my bullet blender has trouble, and I have to add some almond milk or water to thin it. Just make sure you don’t add too much, or it’ll turn into a smoothie!
I’d love to hear about the healthy choices you’re making! Comment below or email me any time.
