It's True - You Are What You Eat

 

You are what you eat is probably the truest statement you'll ever hear when it comes to healthy habits.

 
You are what you eat is not just a metaphor. You may have seen this saying taken out of context and turned into a meme of people joking about it.

 
One of the more popular ones you'll often see in gyms - a picture of a burger head with teeth eating another smaller burger.

 
It actually illustrates an important message; everything we eat will eventually reflect on us physically as well as mentally.

 
So what does the saying "you are what you eat" mean exactly?

 
This analogy explains it perfectly; If you eat bad food, then you're going to eventually look and feel bad. If you eat healthy nutritious foods, then you're going to look and feel amazing.

 
The best way to stay on top of what you're putting into your body is to think of your body as a machine that is constantly regenerating itself to keep all it's parts in peak condition. It does this by relying on your body's internal manufacturing plant of cells!

 
Your body works daily to replace and renew dead cells. On average, adults lose about 300 billion cells every day, and this "cell manufacturing plant" is ran based on the foods that you consume. If you fuel your body with junk foods, it'll produce unhealthy cells. 

 
Below are a couple of my favorite ways to give my nutrition a boost. These tips will even work if you're short on time.

 

1. Juicing

 

 

With the fast paced lives that we live in today's society, it's hard to keep track of the fresh fruits and vegetables that we're consuming on a daily basis. That's why I am such a huge fan of juicing!

Some benefits of juicing include; increased intake of vitamins and minerals, increased energy, boosts immunity, aid in weight loss, and so much more!

Here's some of my favorite fruits and vegetables for juicing:


Carrots: These are a staple for almost all my juice recipes. They are a great source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, and potassium. Carrots also have been linked to lower cholesterol and improved vision.

Apples: When apples are juiced, their hydrating quality is maximized. Apples are also rich in vitamins A, B-12, C, and D. Adding apples to any juice can help improve the flavor of your juice.

Kale: Low in calories, powerful anti-oxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, and helpful for several different types of autoimmune diseases. While it's not my favorite tasting thing to juice, it's incredibly healing.

Spinach: Easy to digest, packed with vitamins, includes anti-cancerous properties, and is one of the healthiest foods in the world.

Cucumber: Mostly made of of water, an incredible detoxifier and helps support liver and kidney function.

 

Here's one of my favorite healing juice recipes:

- 7-10 carrots
- 2 Apples
- 2 Cucumbers

Anytime I drink this juice I immediately feel an incredible boost of energy and feel hydrated. You could also add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to give it a little kick. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

 

2. Smoothies 

 

I love my daily smoothie! Smoothies are full of important nutrients and incredible flavor. When you blend your fruits and veggies you'll preserve the fiber when compared to juicing. This can deliver an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. 

 

Here's My favorite Recipe:

- Cup of wild blue berries
- Cup of cherries
- Cup of raspberries
- 2 bananas 
- Teaspoon of meca powder
- Teaspoon of chia seeds

 

This drink only takes about 4 minutes to make and is super delicious! 

 

3. Wholefood Multivitamins

 

 

Sometimes we don't have enough time in the day to prepare our meals. The next best thing is making sure you have a quality multivitamin supplement that you can take. 

 

We created our Life's Vitality Wholefood Multivitamin just for that purpose. We included a high potency blend of vitamins and minerals, along with a complete food based complex that includes over 42 different fruits and vegetables.

 

Some of those ingredients include spirulina, chlorella, and wheat grass! We also included powerful antioxidants such as grape seed, red raspberry, green tea and more.

 

If you're tight on time and want to give your body the support it deserves, give Life's Vitality a try! It's a great alternative for those who can't get their nutrition from other means.
