Like I mentioned in a previous post, there are some self-improving things I am working on to gain back myself a bit as I adjust to being a Mama of two littles.
One area is taking care of myself better by being more selfish.
I lack when it comes to eating right in the last 3 months. Don’t get me wrong. I have a ton of healthy options stocked in our kitchen and we make it a priority not to eat junk (other than when I’m pregnant and crave it).
But since Jonah has been born, I have found myself either not eating at all, or inhaling food in mass volumes simply because I don’t know when the next opportunity to eat will come or because I have to eat fast when I’m needed.
The most irritating thing to me is that it’s been hard for me to fit in my fruits and veggies when I haven’t prepped them ahead of time so I can just grab on the go.
Here’s where my life-saver has come in and where my goal will be accomplished:
This beauty, the Breville Compact Juice Fountain, is my five minutes of selfishness in the mornings where I juice myself a nutritious breakfast that sets me up for a good day. I’ve only had it a couple of days, but already see the difference in how it makes me feel throughout. I don’t have a blaring headache by 10:00 am, I don’t feel hungry in the afternoon, and I love the fact that I can drink several servings and fresh fruits and veggies in one shot.
As I find yummy concoctions, I’ll post recipes and little tidbits on the benefits on each ingredient.
