Let’s be real, we all know what green smoothies are. Everyone at least thinks about drinking one every time they want a health kick- and heck, if corporations like Starbucks are getting in on the action then you know there’s gotta be some staying power. Unlike some health fads that last a year or two, the green smoothie has been around for decades, and for some very good reasons too.
No matter how busy I am, or where I am, I always have a green smoothie for one of my meals. They are incredibly delicious, easy to make and drink. Once you are in the habit of having one, and feel the change in your vitality after drinking it, there’s no going back.
I’ve listed just a few of the many reasons why you need a green smoothie daily. If you already know the goodness I’m talking about then you can give these reasons to spouses, kids or friends who need a little coaxing to get on the smoothie train:
You’re Too Busy to Eat Breakfast: A smoothie takes 2 minutes to make, is easy to clean up after, plus it is transportable. I like to freeze my fruit in advance to get a milkshake-esque texture.
You’ll Absorb More Nutrients: Even if you already eat a good amount of fruits and veggies, the magic happens when the cell walls of the greens are broken down so that the chlorophyll and other micronutrients can be released. Blending greens into liquid form is much easier than chewing! If you don’t like eating veggies then bonus for you, you’ll get it over with quickly!
You’ll Have More Energy: Chlorophyll is the sun’s energy absorbed through plants to give them their bright green color. Chlorophyll delivers oxygen throughout your body. It is also a detoxifying agent, because it binds to heavy metals and toxins in your body.These combined factors give you a nearly instant energy boost after eating greens- and you can pack a ton of greens into smoothies! .
You’ll Decrease Your Risk of Cancer and other Degenerative Diseases: We should all understand by now that more fruits and veg equal better health. It’s because we all have free radicals in our body, which can potentially cause cancer and cause the gradual breakdown of our tissues. When we eat foods with antioxidants (phytochemicals found in fruit and vegetables), they bind to the free radicals and neutralize them, therefore reducing your risk of illness. These foods also contain a ton of fiber, which helps in the process of eliminating toxins from the body.
You’ll Look Incredible: As the chlorophyll, antioxidants and fiber get to work on nourishing and healing your body, you will be actively cleansing your body of old sludge and allowing your systems to work more efficiently. As a result, your hair, skin and nails will all begin to look better. Many of my clients find their acne will clear up, hair becomes shinier and softer, and nails become stronger and grow faster. As a bonus, the reduced appetite and sugar cravings you’ll experience will also help you shed unwanted fat stores. Yes- as a last ditch effort to get you on the smoothie train I’m appealing to your vanity!
No one ever regretted being in amazing health and feeling fantastic. That is an unresearched but obvious fact. I invite you to make this one simple change to experience the results for yourself. If you need inspiration, check out my free download, A Guide to Creating Green Smoothies, and stick it on your fridge as a reminder to enjoy one every day! Cheers!
Thanks so much for your attention to this newsletter. There's so much you could be doing with these 5 minutes and I really appreciate you spending them with me. I wanted to update you on how I am going to be supporting you moving forward and how you can best use the resources and information I have available to you. I have overhauled my entire coaching model to provide more consistent availability, closer contact and more community- it is a passion project which I am super excited about! Moving forward I am going to be sending out an email each month containing tricks and tips for best holistic health and wellness as well celebrating those who are making progress in our Inner Circle Membership.
This had been bothering me for a long time. How can I (an open hearted, goofy introvert) have personal connection with my amazing clients without hitting a social wall each day? I absolutely adored the deep conversations I would have with clients and the breakthroughs they could achieve, but we found that their progress stagnated in the time between meetings, which was frustrating to both of us. I could also only connect with a dozen clients at a time, which meant I had to say 'no' to helping many people (which I absolutely hated doing!)
So, I finally nailed down a group membership structure which I believe is going to work for all of us! You choose your level of content and connection, and I get to be available to more of you on an ongoing basis. My favourite part? I get to connect more of you, some of my favourite humans, into close circles in which we can share and support each other in achieving our wellness goals and living the lives we were destined for. Empaths of the world unite!
These memberships provide the structure you need and the support you desire at prices you can afford. Join us today!
How to Stop a Sugar Bender
Keep Shining Bright and Making Progress!
This month I would love to have you help me celebrate my dear client Julie. Julie told me she had spent over two decades and thousands of dollars trying to heal her gut. She had tried every book, class, holistic program and supplement and had multiple doctors visits and medical procedures to try to fix the problem. I met her while she was participating in the WILDFIT® 90 Day Challenge.
We have spent six weeks together so far, and in that time she has achieved so much! She started honouring her empathetic and highly sensitive qualities in new ways. She started a daily journaling practice. She started setting boundaries for herself AND she has defeated her Sugar Monster! She has also shed lots of pounds and inches, but said that is not even a big deal anymore because now her goal is being healthy, rather than being thin. Together we found the answers to why everything else hadn't worked, and what she really needed to make lasting progress. She is EMPOWERED and UNSTOPPABLE! In her words she says: My very favorite thing (about working with me) is that she is helping me see and more importantly embrace the most amazing part of myself. As scary as that can be, she does it in a way that makes me feel excited and anxious to keep moving forward full steam ahead! So proud of you Jules!
Refresh, Renew, Release.
