Lately I’ve been putting a lot of thought into my daily habits – what I do, eat, drink and how I spend my time on a day-to-day basis. As humans, we are often drawn to repeat our choices until it becomes an automatic habit…so why not make the conscious decision to predetermine what your daily habits are, in order to achieve what you want out of life?
When you really think about it, our habits determine so much…
The great thing about a habit is that it becomes automatic, so when we set into place healthy habits, our long term goals slowly and steadily become today’s reality.
One of my favorite habits is drinking a freshly squeezed or blended green drink each and every day. I can directly link my energy levels, mental clarity and feeling of well being to this daily downing of greens. Since I’ve grown accustomed to consuming a heaping amount of dark greens every day, my body now craves it.
So what is the big deal about greens? Why should you pick up this habit? Here are some of the reasons that greens are so powerful:
Here’s the recipe for my current favorite green drink, and below are links to other tasty green drink recipes...
5 cups spinach
4 cups kale
2 Green Apples
3 large carrots
1 large piece Ginger Root
Wash all of the produce and run through a juicer. Mix well and serve over ice with a straw. Drink it immediately. Enjoy!
