Eating a healthy diet and a physical routine are part of a healthy lifestyle. We are surrounded by temptation daily. It's much easier to grab something fast than it is to make our own food. This is a cause in the rise of life-threatening diseases. Our top 2 killers are heart disease and cancer. Most of this is caused by a sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary habits. The children born now have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. It is time for us to take charge of our health. It can be done with some easy things to remember. Fast food and soda should be excluded from your diet. Soda has no nutritional value at all. Eat whole unprocessed foods as much as possible and buy organic and locally grown/raised. Cut out sugar. When you need to sweeten things try using natural sweeteners like honey and dates. Read the labels on the food you buy. If you can't pronounce it or don't know what it is, it's probably not food. Cut out as many preservatives, artificial colors and dyes as possible. If you follow these simple rules, you should see an improvement in how you feel.
Here is a sweet treat you don't have to feel guilty for eating. It will give your sweet tooth what it needs while giving you protein, vitamins and minerals. Buy organic items as much as possible.

I usually start my day with a smoothie. I add an organic vegan protein powder, wheatgrass, spirulina, moringa and flaxseed to most recipes. Add whatever supplements you want to your smoothie. Here is a recipe that many people enjoyed back when I use to sell smoothies at Kitchen 66.
