Eat your greens
Every Sunday I go grocery shopping with Morgan. I remember hearing that you should only buy food from the outter perimeter of the grocery store. Everything in the middle is over processed, chemical, JUNK. So I *try* to stick to the outter perimeter. You know, fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, whole grains. Today I got sprouts! Spouts are an amazing SUPER FOOD! To find out more about sprouts and where I get mine from click here.
Today I made a sunflower sprout salad.
I start with olive oil in the bowl I will be eating out of. Then I squirt a bit of lemon juice and mix them together. I add a bit of salt and fresh ground peppercorn pepper. I then cut up some tomato and cucumber and add the sprouts and mix it all together. EASY and YUMMY! Oh and good for you too!
I like to wash it all down with a greens+ drink. Greens+ is a powder with lots of awesome ingredients in it. My favorite magical ingredient is spirulina. I feel such an energy BOOST when I drink it. I simply mix the greens+ powder with orange juice. Yes, once blended it is green, but that's okay! It is so GOOD!
Okay, now I'm off to eat a donut! LOL!!!! Come on, I can't be healthy ALL THE TIME!
