Are you getting enough whole foods in throughout the day? Last week I was lacking energy – all I wanted to do was sleep, my hormones were all over, motivation was very low and lots of negative self talk. Today, on the beginning of a new week I sit here with myself realizing I was lacking the food & nutrients that fuel my body. Before I go further into the types of super foods I filled my tank with today I’d like to remind you that every person is different and one persons fuel food, may be another persons poison.
Recently Nikki got a juicer for the house and all I have to say is I am OBSESSED! It started with having celery juice every morning and now I have began venturing into a new land of ‘what can I come up with next?’
With the new week here I am Bringing the Beet Back – my beat!
