It’s so important for me to listen to my body.
Around December 15th I knew I’d been indulging more than usual. I could feel my energy levels were a little low. I had a few breakouts along my jaw line and my cycle was a day late (which may not sound like a big deal, but when I’m in a healthy groove my body runs like clockwork).
One of my healthy living strategies when I feel this way is to flood my body with nutrient dense foods (leafy greens, healthy fats, proteins, etc.) to get myself back on track.
But is it realistic to try to do a cleanse during the holidays?
Ehhhh… not really.
But when I looked at my calendar I noticed that the week before Christmas I had some quiet time in my schedule where I’d be home in California with no parties or anything. Just me, my family and some of the best produce around in the Central Valley.
I realized I could probably sneak in a little healthy reset before Christmas!
Here’s what I did:
I ordered the NutriBullet LEAN weight loss system.
Because I wanted to get one for my mom for Christmas anyway, I have one at home and it’s super easy to use.
For me, having NutriBullet LEAN is more about the healthy lifestyle that I want to live. Having smoothies every day is a great way for me to keep my healthy lifestyle on track. When I worked in an office, I kept a NutriBullet in my desk drawer, I’ve traveled with my NutriBullet and made smoothies in hotels, so for me I use it more as a healthy lifestyle strategy than a weight loss product.
Anyway, my NutriBullet LEAN came with LEAN Boost powder for my smoothies. In order to maximize the fat burning power of each Lean Blast, it has to contain the correct amount of protein, and the LEAN Boost powder has a proprietary blend of powerful, natural metabolism boosters to optimize fat burning. What’s important for me is that LEAN Blast includes fiber and prebiotics that support healthy digestion and regularity, this was perfect for my healthy reset!
To make life simple, I followed the NutriBullet 7-Day Transformation Plan created by Registered Dietitians on the NutriBullet staff and I’m so glad I did. The 7-Day Transformation Plan teaches you how easy it is to unlock the Weight Loss Code and become the leanest, healthiest you possible. It shows how to make perfect, delicious LEAN Blasts and Portion Perfect Meals by using the plastic plate divider – when it’s time for your meal, you just fill each section with the appropriate foods, so you never take too much of the wrong food. Not only that, NutriBullet LEAN also has an app which makes following the plan and creating your grocery lists super easy.
There were seven smoothie recipes, my favorite is the “Lipid Love” it tastes so yummy and packs a punch with lots of greens, berries and plant-based protein.
One thing I know is that when I start my day with a smoothie like this, I am more inspired to make healthy choices as the day continues. I took our dog Bingo for walks, went swimming and ate healthy lunches, snacks and dinners that were way better than the Christmas treats I’d been nibbling on for the first two weeks in December.
By the time Christmas rolled around I was feeling more energized to play with my little cousins, do my favorite hike in Runyon Canyon and continue my daily smoothies in the New Year.
