I’m sure you’ve heard the cliché saying, “new year, new me,” right? And if you’re anything like me (and most people), you think making resolutions is setting yourself up for failure. When you put too much pressure on yourself to make such a drastic change you end up bored, discouraged, and frustrated, right? Well I’m here to tell you that’s not how you’re supposed to do it!
First of all, no one’s perfect. And just because you’re a “healthy eater” doesn’t mean you have to eat perfectly. My mom always told me; everything in moderation. You can’t live your life being miserable so start small and allow yourself to have “cheat days” if you want them. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret…
Once you start giving your body the “good” stuff, you’ll no longer crave the “bad stuff.” Don’t believe me? Try for yourself! When I crave sweets now, I crave things like yogurt with berries and granola, apple with almond butter, etc. Sure, I love ice cream as much as the next person but it’s no longer something I want nightly after the kids go to bed. And I feel SO much healthier for it.
You know what else I decided to try? Green juices. I’ll admit, I did it all wrong in the beginning and thought I hated them. But when I found Evolution Fresh® I realized that they were actually SUPER good. Some are more of an acquired taste than others but they’re not at all what you would expect to taste. It also helps me make sure I’m getting my fruits and veggies because let’s be honest, with two kids running my schedule, I slip up sometimes. And like I said, there’s no need to be perfect. But these definitely help keep me on course.
One of the benefits of Evolution Fresh juices is the fact that they cold-press their juices with high-pressure processing, keeping all of the good stuff and natural flavors intact. Plus no artificial flavors or colors, so they’re made to taste as close to fresh picked as possible.
Have you tried green juices yet? I encourage you to “Take a Sip in a Brighter Direction” this new year! On January 26th, 2017 you can join in the movement by celebrating National Green Juice Day.
