I'm obsessed with the color green... not really, but it has been making it's appearance a lot of late! Green apples, green salads, green smoothies, and even a short green skirt with brow tights today. :p
Have you been eating your greens today, too?
And, today is pretty exciting because I'm getting ready to sign a lease for my new office! Heart Happy Nutrition-- you were destined to be. =)
Happy spring, everyone! Stay happy. :) Comment and tell me one thing you're loving about warmer weather!!
Ok, yea! I've pretty much gone nuts this week. :p Walnuts, pecans, raw sunflower seeds-- you name it! They are so yummy and heart healthy, too. :)
A lot of people worry about the fat content of nuts, but as long as your eating reasonable serving sizes they are a excellent choice! Fat content in food is actually what gives up that "full feeling" and helps keeps us from feeling hungry. :)
I especially love cashews for their magnesium content as it's a mineral I need to focus feeding my body more of, right now!
This week has been crraaaazzy for me. How are your workouts going, on top of the healthy eating? :p Thankfully I was able to squeeze in a 2 miler run this evening. :) It's late, though- and I'm leaving the library now to head home! See ya soon!
Thankfully, I had an energizing coconut banana chocolate green smoothie this morning to thrust me forward. :p
What greens are you relishing today? :) You adjusting to the new time ok? Silly me, but I forgot to change my clock... last night I was thinking it was only 11-ish while "tomorrow" had already been ushered in!
Anyways, here's a cheat sheet for you on the greens to get your Monday started off right!
We all know (intellectually) that we are what we eat, and that this is waaay easier said then done! Our bodies are never staying the same-- they are constantly in a state of repairing / rejuvenating. But, how long does it *really* take your body to rebuild itself??
Interested? Me, too!
Let's check it out. :)
Liver = 5 months
Taste buds = 10 days
Brain age = same as your age
Heart age = 20 years (wow! take care of you heart :)
Lung age = 2-3 weeks
Skin age = 2-4 weeks
Intestines = 2-3 days (this is why you can eat like trash for a few days, feel rotten, then-- switch your diet and in 3 days feel a whole lot better! high turn over there....)
