one is friend and one is food
hint: the banana is the one that’s food
Life long vegetarian. That little piggy is NOT going to the market!
Go to bed early.
…I’m working on this one
Being a vegetarian for 25 years, I literally get asked this question almost every day.
THIS IS WHERE I GET MY PROTEIN FROM PEOPLE!!
God, health, my love, my family and my puppy.
And avocados… let’s be real here :)
Breakfast is the #1 important meal of the day! By that I don’t mean a sugary bowl of processed cereal, or a white bagel with 10 gallons of cream cheese on it.
Oatmeal is great, it keeps you full for a long time and is packed with good stuff your body needs.
Eggs are also a wonderful way to start off your day. Full of protein, and are a great way you can sneak in some extra veggies too :)
Then of course my favorite- SMOOTHIES!!
Smoothies are great because you can blend up all your favorite fruits and veggies and sneak them into your day. Nutrients and vitamins galore.
30 Day Juice Cleanse- Day 15!!
I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT’S BEEN 2 WHOLE WEEKS SINCE I’VE EATEN SOLID FOOD!!!
Today marks the 15th day of Bryan and I’s juice cleanse, and do you know what that means?? WE’RE HALF WAY THERE! Only 15 more days until we reach our 30 day goal, as a couple :)
To be honest, the first 5 days were the hardest. Now that we’ve been doing it for so long, we already have our new routines down and food seems to be something of the past.
Do we still cringe every time we hear about our favorite foods or smell a pizza… OF COURSE! I’m not saying we don’t miss the food, I’m just saying we don’t need it.
Rapid Nail Growth
My nails are literally shooting out of my fingers like rocket ships! They’re so strong, so long, and so healthy that I’ve received a BUNCH of comments asking if they were fake! Yesterday, I smacked my pointer finger so hard on the table that normally my nail would have broke in half, but to my surprise it didn’t even make a mark. I was floored. How cool is that???! I’ll post pictures later, you won’t even believe how healthy and long they are.
I’ve blogged about how long and fast my hair has been growing since I started the cleanse, but to top it off, I’m starting to notice how incredibly shiny it is! I’ve had a bunch of friends in my college classes ask if I was wearing hair extensions! But NOPE! 100% real hair, 100% real nails. I’m telling you, healthy eating is the way to go.
Clear Skin in 2 weeks!
I grew up with so much acne, acne scarring, and TERRIBLE skin. I tried everything from Proactive, to every other face mask, medication, and infomercial possible in attempt to clear it up. Absolutely nothing worked growing up, especially since it was hereditary and ran in my family.
But now that I’ve been juicing for just 2 weeks, IT’S GONE! I still get the occasional zit every once in a while, but it’s NOTHING like it used to be. I wake up with a face that I don’t feel I have to cake on the foundation anymore. There’s still some more improvement to be made, but I’m so excited to see what will happen in the last 2 weeks of the cleanse!
Today’s Delicious Juice
Today’s juice was one of my favorites so far. Not to brag or anything, but after juicing every day- we’ve gotten pretty good at creating delicious juices.
- 3 carrots
- 5 celery stalks
- 3 peaches
- 3 oranges
- 1 inch ginger
I’ve been getting a LOT of questions from you guys, and I’m trying to get through them quickly :) Even so, questions welcome!! Even if I don’t know the answer, I love getting stumped and having to research things that you guys come up with!
Ask Here :)
Bryan and I had SO much fun at Dapper Day Disneyland! This was one of my very favorite photos from all the hundreds we took.
I’m so in love, so so so in love. And it’s the kind of love that we’ve REALLY worked hard to achieve. It hasn’t been all butterflies and magic, but those rough times we made it through are what makes it that much more special.
1 Deployment, 2 lost jobs, 3 family melt downs, and a whole lot of prayers that got us through it all.
At the end of the day, Bryan you will forever be the Dapper Prince Charming that I never knew I needed.
I’m SO proud to be doing SO well in college right now! I only have 1 midterm left out of all my classes, and I’m totally killing them so far. Such inspiration to keep studying and working even harder for finals.
… Not going to lie though… it would be GREAT if professors would actually put what they say they’re going to put on tests haha
Haha thanks! I’m quite in love with it as well :) We have a pretty cool story if I do say so myself. And if God allows it, we’ll have a pretty great happy ending too <3
