This year, I resolved to: Drink my greens by juicing whole fruits and veggies daily.
Even though this challenge is almost done, I still struggle with: Replacing my morning breakfast bar with a nutrients-packed superfood smoothie.
Coping mechanisms: Not ditching the bars just yet. Whether it’s frugality or a cop-out, rather than waste the breakfast bars I have, I’ve decided to finish them … and not buy any more.
I’m feeling: Great—both because my energy level is up and because I’ve gotten into a routine of prepping my weekday smoothie the night before (so I can pulse it in the blender for 45 seconds and dash out the door).
My takeaway: I couldn’t imagine eating two apples, two oranges, a sweet potato, and a big handful of nuts all in one sitting. But blend them up and pour them in a glass, and I’ll happily suck them down.
