New Year, New Me

One of my goals this year is to be healthier and to increase my daily exercise. I really wanted to include more veggies and fruits in my meals, but in my case I find it hard to do. I got a Nutribullet and let me tell you this product is amazing! (and no, this is NOT a sponsored post and I am not receiving anything for this) I started in the beginning of January including two Nutriblasts a day, especially in the morning. The product comes with a booklet that you can experiment with different fruits and vegetables and also seeds for "boost." My husband and I also create our own. I am already feeling better. I sleep better and have more energy. I went to the health store and bought Hemp seeds, Chia seeds and Maca powder. These three products are super healthy, even though they are not very cheap, but they are full of nutrients. Maca powder I use especially to regulate my hormones since I have at times hormonal imbalance AND helps with mood too, just sayin'!


A cup of healthy goodness!




These are some of my favorite smoothies:
spinach, one banana, one apple, one pear, chia seeds, water.
spinach, blueberries, one apple, one banana, walnuts, water.
mixed greens, one peach, blueberries, banana, tsp maca powder, water.
mixed greens, mixed berries, a pear, hemp seeds, water.
Frozen banana + almond milk+little cinnamon= AMAZING DESSERT!!

 For my exercise I chose yoga and Zumba, which I do at home. My husband does Insanity and it is great but I find it really hard to do. Since I am latina I love to dance and I love the music included in Zumba. Also being a Dental Hygienist is not good for my back, and sometimes I come from work with back pain.Yoga helps with that because of all the stretching.
Do you have any goals to be healthier this  year?

  1. Los voy a probar, ya que estamos haciendo green drinks and smoothies también. A los chicos les gustan y es una buena manera de que coman vegetales, son medios pickies los míos.
