For some of you this means the weekend, whoo hop! For me, not so much. Haha. I'm a server, most of you know this. So my work schedule is basically opposite of the the normal. But it works for me so I am able to pursue my career in acting! Now anyway, need to focus on what this post is really about. And thats about the challenge I'm launching for all of you & myself. Sometimes we find ourselves in a rut, and feel like something needs to change. At least for me thats currently how I feel, and I think it always goes back to nutrition and exercise. Which there has kinda been a big lack there of in both departments for me, not gonna lie. I always keep it 'healthy'. But Not really in the tip top shape I'd like to be in. I would love to invite you to join me in my green eating adventure. #TheDailyKale challenge does not mean you have to eat kale everyday. Although I don't find that a problem ;) haha. I just feel like sometimes I don't get enough veggies in. If your still hungry after eating a meal, and realize you didn't really have any veggies or clean food, then thats probably why your still hungry and not satisfied, or not feeling that great. I feel awesome when I eat my quinoa bowls. It's pretty much a great balanced meal. And having green smoothies, and my cacao truffles. All of that yummy clean food. You can't feel bad about it, because it's not bad. So I would LOVE FOR YOU to join me in my attempt of becoming even greener. I will give you an example of what you could possibly eat in a day. I understand some of you are not vegan, and thats fine, so whatever I write, just opt for your particular (hopefully organic and clean) protein of choice instead. And on instagram if you post a photo of your beautiful clean meal & or of you & your favorite veggie, please #thedailykale so I can see it :)
*In addition to this green clean eating , I am upping my exercise also. I think we all have different goals & like to do different things for workout. And thats awesome. I do like to write down my workout plan for the week and check it off like a to do list once I've completed it. I feel really happy when I wrote a goal down and get to check it off. It could be just as simple as writing down: Tuesday, walk 3 miles. And then checking it off after :) You should try it. Get outside or in the gym, do something fun, just get out there and be active. Keep yourself healthy!
Sample Plan for #TheDailyKale Challenge (But anything works, just get those veggies in! Thats the real point)
Quinoa Bowl : Could consist of Black beans, quinoa, kale, topped with purple cabbage, and cashew cheese or pesto
Snacks: Nuts, fruit, Green Smoothie
Oh and drink tons of water! Like for real, a bunch :) Have a great weekend!
