Think about what you have eaten in the past 24 hours. I’m willing to bet a large percentage of people have eaten something like cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and possibly pasta or pizza for dinner. Maybe this doesn’t describe you at all and you already get plenty of live enzymes into your daily diet. If so, good for you! But maybe we all need a little challenge to help focus on eating more live enzymes. Join the FREE Just Feel it Fitness Salad Challenge. I am challenging you to eat a salad every single day for the 4 weeks leading up to summer.
Because our bodies need more live enzymes to help digest everything that we put into it. We need more natural fiber to help rid the breads, pastas, etc that we can’t seem to say no to. (I love this stuff too!) A diet full of breads and pastas and sandwiches doesn’t have enough fiber to help your body smoothly and quickly move it through your digestive system.
What should I put in my salad?
Any collection of uncooked vegetables or fruits. Uncooked is key. We need the live enzymes. All you need is lettuce or spinach and any other veggies you like. Get colorful, get creative! I like to wash and cut up romaine and leave it in the fridge in my salad spinner. When I’m ready for my salad, I just take the lettuce and add some chopped veggies. Depending if it’s a side salad or your main meal, add some form of protein. Tuna, chicken, or hard boiled eggs are a few examples. Steer clear of croutons and creamy salad dressings, we want to keep your salads as simple and live as possible. Stick to vinaigrettes or simple oil and vinegar.
When should I eat my salad?
You can eat salad any time of day! But try eating your salad before you eat the rest of your meal. For example, order a side salad to come before your meal when you eat out. Have a fruit salad before your breakfast. Toss together a simple mixed green salad and eat before your chicken and rice dinner. Snack on baby carrots and grapes and other live foods. Give your body something live to work with every single day!
What should I expect?
When you put more live enzymes into your body, you are helping your system rid of waste. You will have more regular, and easier to pass bowel movements. It is also very possible to lose an inch or 2 from your waist. Your skin will look clearer, and you might even lose weight!
