Do NOT start a diet on January 1st!

I am begging you PLEASE don’t start a diet on January 1st.

Please, please, please, please, please don’t do it.  It’s a total set up for failure.

In 2 or 3 weeks you’ll fall off the wagon, eat some “offending” food and then throw the baby out with the bath water and HATE yourself for failing again.  Do NOT do it.  There is an easier way to make lasting change in your life by setting yourself up for success!  How you ask?  Just drink one green smoothie EVERY day.

EVERY  morning get up and make yourself a green smoothie — a big fat one.  Drink half in the morning and pack up the other half and bring it with you wherever you are going for the day, NO exceptions.  You can continue to eat as you have been eating (okay, not like Christmas week eating) but do as you have been doing, just add a green smoothie EVERY day and you will be fast on the track towards better health through eating more nutrient dense foods.

What should you add after you become proficient with smoothies?  Stay tuned for that post coming your way in early 2014, just start with one green smoothie NOW.

Not sure how to make a smoothie?  Check out my blog post on 5 steps to the perfect smoothie.

Ultimately we want to move towards a diet filled with more WHOLE plant-based foods.   This is the first of many steps towards that goal.  Get good with it.  Become a pro.

Please share any of your tips for successful smoothies that you might have in the comments section below.

FYI, I just got a NutriBullet900 for $125 and it works AWESOME.

Happy New YOU!

  1. Just tried making my first green smoothie. It. was. amazing.!! I used 1/2 orange, 1 ripe banana, 8 oz water, 6-8 romaine lettuce leaves, 1 scoop protein powder and 1 capful MCT oil. I used a stick blender to mix well. It blended very smooth and tasted great. Thanks for encouraging me to try a green smoothie. I’ve been making smoothies for a while but they always seemed to be missing something. It’s the green – just what every smoothie needs.

    • You, my friend, are on the fast track to better living! Congrats and thanks for writing. I love romaine lettuce for a multitude of reasons, but the biggest reason is they last in the fridge forEVER and are quick and easy to integrate into just about ANYTHING. They are a GREAT place to start when you are new to green smoothies. Keep up the GREAT Teresa!
