I have been doing some major damage to my body this past week – too much alcohol and not a lot much else. For those of you who have only recently started viewing my blog, you can read more about my diet here.
Starting today, I went back to my old eating habits. My staples: Vegan Protein Powder, Coconut Oil, Nutritional Yeast, and Chia Seeds. I forgot to add Quinoa but I ran out of it so it’s not pictured here. You can look these items up and read about the benefits of each.
I try to cook often and freeze a lot of portions out so I always have healthy food on hand. That way I don’t run out and get fast food as well. I think that physical health is very important. I have abused my body quite often when I was younger, so now I have to try and reverse the damages, or at least learn to take better care of myself. Currently I only have ice and organic frozen fruits in my freezer. Easy to make protein shakes that way though. Oh, and of course veggie patties (not that healthy!) and Ezekiel bread.
At times it is a bit more expensive to eat healthier, but it’s cheaper than the alternative of hospital bills.
An easy recipe I like to make is Chia Fresca. It’s an all natural energy drink, and is great for runners (look up Born to Run by Christopher McDougall). For me, I drink it because chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, and it helps to balance my blood sugar out. I also make all kinds of chia pudding, although my favorite would be my coconut vanilla chia pudding – it is to die for.
Tomorrow I shall be taking my poor Vitamix out of retirement, and I will make a post someday soon about the green drink I have daily.
You are a perishable item. Live accordingly.
Oh, and this isn’t really a song (although I do like the snippet of the song they sing), but Mr. Charming emailed me the link because it reminded him of me. If you haven’t yet seen my gravatar, that is actually a panda spirit hood that I have on. Also, I am a very ornery person. I simply cannot stop laughing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Never say no to Panda!
So the guilt of not posting a song like I said I would every day is getting to me. Here’s a song that I will probably have on replay. It’s soothing, and I just love how whimsical the music video is! 🙂 Ok. End rant.
