Before I worked in finance, I did consulting. I was constantly on the road, eating out all the time, and working long hours. My older team members told me to enjoy the lifestyle while it lasted, because eventually my body wouldn’t be able to keep up with that schedule. Well…I think I’ve hit that point! Last week I traveled to four cities in three days. Lots of flights. Lots of airport food. Little sleep. I couldn’t wait to get home. Since our schedule is more low-key this week, we decided to stock up on fruits and veggies and do a little cleanse.
We wanted to make this mostly fruit and vegetable based: smoothies, salads, and roasted vegetables. I did a lot of prep on Sunday to make our weekday mornings as easy as possible. We juice on a regular basis, but it’s been fun to make smoothies this week. I’m starting to see the true power of our vitamix!
We’re only a couple days in and I am already feeling better. This is not a strict schedule by any means (there were girl scout cookies at book club last Sunday and they were delicious!), but it’s been nice to eat cleaner this week. We’ve been having a smoothie for breakfast, a raw salad and smoothie for lunch, and roasted veggies (sometimes with quinoa/rice) for dinner.
