GREEN JUICE FOR THE SOUL

Hey Lovelies! Happy Monday to you! And Happy APRIL 30th! The last day of the month… wooo! How is the year going so far for you? This month has been a little all over the place, and I am only now starting to feel grounded in a routine. Moving, new jobs, finishing and starting another round of 80DO. The first quarter of 2018 has been pretty good to me. Anyways, lets get right into this post today- I even have a promo code for you! 

This post will be a shorter one- and on my favourite topic… FOOD 🙂 Sweets as you know have been a struggle for me since forever it feels like. I finally went to see a naturopath last week- and I am going back on the Candida diet  (always was, but this time a little more strict and less slack) – so no dairy mostly because I decided to add cheese back into my diet in March. If you are wondering what the fuck is candida, I did a post on it a few months back. Anywho, I am going to be on the diet, along with taking pills to REALLY kill it out. On my birthday in June we reevaluate. So, since I have to really watch what I eat, I went shopping…Grocery shopping! And food prepping!

Now, I don’t know about you, but it has been a goal of mine to one day only shop local and organic (whole foods lol). ALL THE ORGANIC PRODUCE please and thanks! Well, The Universe must have been sending me signs. Have you guys heard of spud.ca? A spud delivery man lives across the street from my parents house as I would always see the truck there with SPUD on it. I would always drive by one of their stores down on Hastings… thinking to myself “I wanna shop there one day.” Well, that day has finally arrived. Kat, one my students who has been coming to my classes for a while now, gave me a promo code to use for them- and I will be giving it to you too! It was $50 off groceries when you spend $125. $125 is so EASY to spend on groceries these days!

ANYWAYS, it was fun. Have you ever online shopped for your groceries? Yeah, did I mention that part? Online shopping! OMG what a time saver! AND GET THIS, if you get the same stuff- it saves your order and you can just have it come auto shipped. OMG. Like duh, why didn’t I think of this!? So convenient. And they deliver for free right to your door! AND no plastic bags! Thank goodness! They get delivered in reusable bins! AND it is all local and organic. OMG in heaven! AND I bought stuff I normally don’t see in the stores… LIKE ZOODLES!

So, my fridge is FULL of greens that I GOTTA use or I will be so mad at myself. The best way to down veggies in a short period of time? JUICE EM! So I decided to share with you, 3 of my favourite juice/smoothie recipes. I have a Vitamix- so I don’t juice. I leave all the pulp in there. EXTRA FIBRE! IT’S AMAZING! Thank you Vitamix.  What I have learned over the past 4 months is that you gotta love yourself by eating right! You feel soooo much better! So these recipes are bomb for your mind, body and soul!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing it everywhere! Celery juice is in for some reason. First is was spinach, then it was kale. Now everyones all about celery. And let me tell you. I fucking hate celery. It is my least favourite vegetable. But apparently it gets the job done. And it isn’t too bad either. They also say to drink pure celery juice first think in the morning. If you aren’t that hardcore, here is one for you to start with other ingredients in it.

Cleansing Juice
2 apples
1 cucumber
1/4 cup wheatgrass
1 celery stock
lime juice
a few mint leafs
Juice in juicer or throw in vitamix on liquify setting and enjoy!

Green Goddess

1 apple
1 kiwifruit, peeled
1 pear

You will notice a difference in your energy, skin, mood and overall life if you start incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables into your life! What’s your fav go to? Do you have a suggestion? DO YOU WANT $50 off your first bill with spud?? Seriously give it a try! I was so impressed. Think about it- you will save money, time and you will be eating organic food! So you know it ain’t GMO.  If you would like the promo code- please email me at shannonpetersfitness@gmail.com  and I will pass it along! 

Have a wonderful monday and last day of April! Go manifest what you want for your new month! Take inventory of April- what you liked, what was awesome, and what you can improve on! This is so important to do every month, or every quarter. Continue to grow, expand and LOVE YOURSELF! May, here we come!

Namaste
