KRIS' NUTRITION TIPS
- Many of you have already started to remove the meat and dairy products from your cabinets, fridge, and pantry. GREAT! Toss what no longer serves you. These are poisons not meant for your regal being.
- Dazzle your guests with a rockin’ vegan dinner, clean up Mama Earth, and connect with other like-minded bright lights. Dig in. Get dirty. Enjoy!
- As a general guideline, I like to build my smoothies with a 3:1 ratio of veggies to fruit. One of my favorite morning power shakes consists of a cucumber, a large handful of romaine, an avocado, and a pear. Coconut water with a little stevia adds lovely flavor.
- If you flub a day, it’s OK. Don’t beat yourself up or succumb to a mega-binge. Pay attention to what hit your trigger. Take a walk, call a buddy, soak in the tub, or rent a funny movie. Do what you need to do to break the habit, and then dive in again.
