Fresh Foods February

As much as I love these daily endeavors and monthly goals, some months do not go as planned. During the few months that I've missed the mark, it's either because the goal seemed less exciting to me than originally planned or life is just too busy to make time for the goals. I can handle the former and I'm open to changing plans. The latter can be disappointing since I want to make these projects a priority, but the reality of a demanding job can sometimes foil my best intentions.

In February, I had planned for an entire month of unprocessed, whole foods. The first few weeks, I had about a 30% success rate with even less success in the last half of the month.

On the bright side, I soon after discovered the Nutribullet! A friend introduced me to it while we were talking about Fresh Food February. It's amazing and has transformed my way of eating. It's a simple, easy way to have fruits and vegetables every single day. I've been using it to replace my lunches on most days, and sometimes as a snack or a breakfast. I've occasionally used it replace dinners if I had a large lunch during the day. 

Combinations such as:
  • Spinach, carrots, apples, water, flax or chia seeds
  • Spinach, carrots, bananas, apples, water, flax or chia seeds
  • Spinach, mango, pineapple, water, flax or chia seeds
  • Banana, peanut butter, milk
  • Kale, bananas, pineapple, strawberries, flax seeds
I love my Nutribullet! Even though my whole foods month was a bust, I discovered the Nutribullet which I would have NEVER found otherwise. 

June 1, 2013 Update: I'm still using my Nutribullet about 4 times a week. I love it !
