Coming down from the holidays has led to simple meals, fruits & veggies, and smoothies. Part of this stems from wanting to just take it easy (aka lazy-times), another from a craving for lighter eats after all the rich holiday feasting. On work days I need to take along pretty much all of my food for the day. I've been drinking a big smoothie in the morning then packing lunch, dinner & snacks. Sometimes this means relying on pre-made food. This a pretty good example of a day's worth of easy food:
Smoothies have made a big comeback at my house! In the past I've had trouble drinking ice cold smoothies in the middle of winter. Adding more hearty ingredients like peanut butter and nuts seems to make it easier. Actually, I crave them now. Starting my day with hydrating and nutrient dense blended fruit and greens makes a big difference in my energy level.
So far January has been busy (lots of work!). I'm rotating between long work shifts and mega naps. Green juice has also made a comeback. I can't get enough of it lately. My body likes the good stuff.
Hope your January is going well so far, and hope you're all ready for Friday the 13th!
