Blasted Off a Week Ago and Have yet to Land
I am new to this site and to extracting fruits and veg to promote health and vibrancy in my life. Made my first kale-apple-pineapple-banana-almond smoothie a week ago today, and have enjoyed each one since. I have always enjoyed fruits and veg, but in the last few years have somehow been eating fewer and fewer--seriously, I was finding the mere CHEWING tedious. Lunches at school--I'm a high school teacher-- were going unconsumed as I didn't have time to gnosh and (a) advise a kid, (b) consult a colleague, (c) contact a parent, (d) grade a paper or six, or (e) several of the above all at once. I was working to pack a healthy meal each day, but then not eating it and leaving work ravenous each afternoon. Let's see--there are TEN fast food outlets between my school and my driveway; how often do you suppose I made it all the way home to a fairly decent alternative rather than pulling through a drivethru? Well, this week has been amazing--and now I'm active here, and looking forward to recipes and comraderie and inspiration as I get my vitality back and thrumming!
