Hello! My name is Michelle and I'm a former magazine junkie ( you name it Vogue, World of Interiors, Us Magazine, Cookie - I left no page unturned)...I finally kicked the habit 3 years ago (mainly because the arrival of L severely limited any free time) but yesterday at Whole Foods I was completely seduced by this Whole Living cover and into my cart it went...something about it and January just made smoothies, kale, and broiled Salmon sound delightful - right? maybe?...and now that I've made a short list of beauty goals it's time to dive into diet territory...however by diet, I am in no way referring to limiting myself, going sugar free or any crazy ideas like that - just that I have a couple of aspirations for the new year...(and only a couple)
1) Eat More Vegetables & Fruit - why is this so hard? Come csa and garden time I'm all set but something about a salad in the dead of winter just seems unappealing...smoothies and juicing seem like a great alternative...Elizabeth posted some yummy sounding detox fruit and almond shakes, Heather has a great immune boosting juice idea, Gwyneth has entire cleanse plan and Whole Living has 25 recipes to try...a different one a day? or you can "cheat" like me and drink a glass of Dynamic Greens mix everyday (I have for the past month and it does make me feel a bit greener)
2) Finally start menu planning for the week instead of rushing to the grocery store with a cranky 3 yr old and a half baked (literally) idea of what's for dinner - Estelle inspired me and it sounds like she's off to a delicious start...so meal planners - any tips? I know you're out there - hmmm....maybe we should do a detox/meal planning recipe exchange this month..any joiners?
Hope everyone is having a happy, healthy Monday!
