7 Easy Steps to a Healthy Life!

So, you’re ready to take the plunge into being a recovering carnivore and don’t know where to start.

Great, I can help with that! To begin, let’s keep the recipes and meal planning very basic. Don’t over think, appreciate.

1. Green smoothie for breakfast.

  • It’s like a regular smoothie, only you add kale.

2. 4-5 smaller veggie, nut, seed and grain filled meals per day.

  • Keep the engine burning all day long. Watch your gut vanish and your energy rocket up, up and away.

3. Get a juicer or find a juice bar and drink fresh juice everyday.

  • Shock your system with raw, nutrient-rich fruits and veggies in a glass. Nature makes the best energy drink out there.

4. Don’t eat first thing in the morning and don’t eat within a couple of hours of going to bed.

  • Your stomach will fool you in the morning by groaning and moaning. Hold off until after getting a light workout in. We also drink a cup of hot lemon water to help with digestion.
  • As for bedtime, your body stops breaking down calories as soon as you fall asleep. You will also feel better in the morning if you don’t have that late night snack.

5. Listen to your body: Eat only when you’re hungry, stop eating when you’re full.

  • Simple, but effective.

6. Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins.

  • 6 to 8 glasses per day and make sure it’s filtered.

7. Cook the food yourself.

  • You will definitely know where your food comes from and how it is prepared if you do it yourself. Plus, it is so much more rewarding when you can say that you made it from scratch.

After these simple steps, the rest is downhill.
