Life can be easy if you learn to
simplify the complications.
The most complicated part of our lives I
find revolves around the simple
things... like what you eat.
a year ago I took a challenge that
changed my life. I signed up to take a
21 Day Kickstart Vegan program, and I
was completely Vegan except for my
Shakeology (which is also now in a Vegan
Formulation) for 7 months of 2011. The
changes I saw in my life were so amazing
I can't even begin to share all of them
here. Let's just say that as my food
choices simplified, my life did as well.
My family isn't Vegan, but when they
do eat meats they eat only Grass-fed,
pastured meats that we know are from the
best quality sustainable sources. Why
are plants and pastures so important to
simplificaiton of our lives?
Since 1972, women's overall level of
happiness has dropped, both relative to
where they were forty years ago, and
relative to men. You find this drop in
happiness in women regardless of whether
they have kids, how many kids they have,
how much money they make, how healthy
they are, what job they hold, whether
they are married, single or divorced,
how old they are, or what race they are.
Why?? Part of that is the fact that we
have far too many choices in our day -
and all of those decisions do not make
our lives easier. It's more complicated.
It is not that women are less happy
because they have a choice, it's just
that choices don't create change, just
you are looking at a jumble of foods in
the supermarket, how do you make that
choice? It is often a very stressed out
time for you - either you are rushed to
get back to your family, and
responsibilities; or you are driving
around a cart of one or more children
that are just about to drive you to the
point of insanity. We release the stress
- the cortisol takes over - and we end
up reaching for everything we don't want
in our kitchens. It is a cycle of
destruction in our lives that causes
more sugar overload, more carb cravings,
more reasons for depression and a life
that you want to give to someone else.
Oz has said it... automate your meals.
That doesn't mean you should buy 14 TV
dinners and have one every night. It
means you select healthy items that
work, and use them over and over again.
How do I do this and why should it
matter to you? Food, as you may have
figured out by now, fuels so much more
than just your stomach. You are a
complicated machine and it's meant to be
your everything. So make it simple, and
how I've done this is by adding back in
natural real foods and made it easy
using my Vitamix 5200. So let's start
National Institute on Aging confirms
that the free radicals produced during
the normal process of metabolism play a
central role in every age-related issue
including type-2 diabetes,
cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s
disease and stroke. In the past five
years, an impressive body of research
has emerged showing that antioxidants in
colorful fruits and vegetables may
protect the body and brain against free
radicals and the ravages of aging. Other
new research shows that restricting
calories also helps eliminate those
nefarious free radicals. On top of that,
are there depression-fighting foods? A
growing body of research says yes.
So what’s the answer? Meeting—not
exceeding energy needs with primarily
nutrient-dense foods (fruits, vegetables
and whole grains) is an excellent idea.
Processing those nutrient-dense foods in
the Vitamix 5200 is an even better one.
A 2008 study at the University of
Toronto showed that Vitamix processing
breaks through the cell walls of plant
foods far better than simply chewing the
same food. The resulting smaller
particle size may make a real difference
in the disease-fighting
antioxidants—which can only be released
when cell walls are ruptured—available
to fight free radicals in the body.
about if you have diabetes? Or are
pre-diabetic? If you are working to
prevent diabetes, you need a Vitamix
machine. If you are living with
diabetes, you need a Vitamix machine.
High-fiber whole food meals are at the
heart of the diabetic diet. That's what
keeps insulin levels low. The Vitamix
machine can create such a wide variety
of whole food meals that you can
actually eliminate up to 10 small
appliances from your kitchen counter!
Here is a list of some of the most
important food functions that the
Vitamix machine can perform - without
any attachments - to help you enjoy
maximum taste and nutrition from your
healthy whole food diet.
