To juice or not to juice, to blend or not to blend, that is the question! Which one is best? What's a girl to do? Panic! Freeze! Give up! Sleep! NOPE. Hands down the best way to increase our alkalinity and detox our purdy bodies is to consume a diet full of sunlight aka liquid chlorophyll. Chlorophyll contains a powerful blood builder that’s said to increase red blood cells, improve circulation, ease inflammation, oxygenate the body, and counteract harmful free radicals. By eating (and drinking) a diet high in chlorophyll (raw fruits and veggies, especially leafy greens), we dine on liquid oxygen, the very substance we need to stay alive and thrive.
When cooking from scratch seems out of reach, do the next best thing. Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl explains how. There are nights when I really wonder who’s in charge around my house: me or the food. I’ll never forget, for example, the night I had a formal event to attend. I did my makeup and my hair, and then left the house to pick up the baby from daycare and the CSA box of local vegetables from the neighborhood drop-off site. I retrieved both my charges, and sat down with the baby to unpack the vegetables.
Like countless Americans, I take part in Meatless Monday. (I also eat meatless on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and every other day of the week, but that came after a while.) Though I'm vegan and advocate that others eat a plant-based diet, I know that many people aren't quite ready to take that step in whole. For those folks, the concept of simply reducing our meat consumption -- say, going meat-free every Monday -- might be a bit more digestible.
Nutritious, whole, organic food can cost a pretty penny, especially if you're not committed to investing time and energy into becoming a savvy shopper and proactive consumer. I've encountered every excuse and complaint in the book and believe me - I hear ya! Family, work and exhaustion are tough demons to tame when you're staring at an empty dinner table, but let's face it ... Would you rather cut corners and save some money in the short term or spend more time planning, eating consciously, and shopping smart to ward off future hospital bills, prescription costs and long-term health issues?
