Over the years, I’ve experimented with a lot of different types of eating. I was vegan for years, ate raw for about 10 months, evaluated gluten-free options, and tried abstaining from sugar (that one didn’t stick). I quit drinking coffee years ago, and replaced it with yerba mate and green juice. And I don’t really eat dairy, unless I’m in the mood for ice-cream, although I unfortunately had to enforce a Ben & Jerry’s ban. (Sadly, ice-cream is my kryptonite.)
Now, some of this may sound extreme to you, but all of these food experiments have taught me different things. The most crucial thing I’ve discovered is how much better my body works when I’m fueling it with good, nutritional stuff.
These days, what I eat is pretty regimented, but I like it that way. After all, decision fatigue is real. And it’s not just that I’m a creature of habit: I’ve deliberately chosen food that is easy for me to prepare and eat, while giving me maximum nutrition. Nor is it only that I like to eat healthy foods: I work out — hard — 5 days a week, and my body needs plenty of nourishment. Turning up to the gym on an empty stomach is a fool’s errand!
One of my most awesome recent discoveries is ALOHA Daily Good Greens. It’s a whole-food powder blend in a little packet that you can sprinkle over your morning oatmeal, pour into a smoothie or protein shake, or even stir into water for a quick nutritional boost.
It’s pretty mind-blowing that in such a small packet there’s over 2 servings of fruit and vegetables! Daily Good Greens is made from organic lemon, wild-harvested coconut water, organic wild blueberries, organic spinach, organic green peas, organic wheatgrass, organic spirulina, sustainable moringa, organic yellow Hawaiian ginger, Hawaiian red alaea salt, organic enoki mushroom, organic oyster mushroom, organic raspberries, and organic king trumpet mushroom. I mean, damn. Best of all, it tastes amazing!
Even though I eat a pretty healthy, balanced diet, it’s important to me that I get a lot of greens. My body feels better, and my mind is clearer and sharper, when I do. This is — dare I say it — the easiest way to get your green on!
I love it so much, and I’d like you to add it to your life, too, which is why ALOHA and I have teamed up to give away a big box of Daily Good Greens! Yay!
