Happy Monday!!! Welcome to Day 12 and a brand new week full of opportunities to #exercise, #eatclean and to get plenty of rest! Well I’m on vacation this week but that does not mean I’m vacationing from eating #healthy! I am integrating intermittent fasting from 8pm-12 noon then breaking my fast with a green smoothie with vegan protein powder. I’ll have a healthy snack in between (for example almonds, apples with almond or cashew butter, guacamole with baby carrots) Then I’ll have a sensible dinner with vegetables, a healthy fat and protein. I have included a link on the benefits of intermittent fasting from Authority Nutrition below.
I also brought my blender with me and I will be getting my blending on this week while at the beach. I thought I’d also share some nice green smoothie recipes that I ran across. I ALWAYS add vegan protein powder to my smoothies, using almond or coconut milk to blend it with and I add 1 teaspoon of organic virgin coconut oil and 2-3 teaspoons of chia seeds. So whether you are at home, at work, on the go or on vacation come armed with your healthy arsenal to help keep you on track. So what is your action plan for this week? Let’s get it in! No days off!!! Lets Go!!!
