1 packet SFH Pure – chocolate
1 med banana
1 granny smith apple
1 cup carrots
1/8 to 1/4 inch round of raw ginger (about circumference of a nickel)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
2 cups frozen spinach
1.5 tbs aloe vera
1 tsp maca powder

New Dietary Guidelines

The “new” USDA dietary guidelines have been released.  “New” is in quotes because it’s not really new information.  It just now has the stamp of the USDA on it.  Here’s the short version:

  • Eat a plant-based diet
  • Reduce red and processed meats
  • Eliminate added sugar
  • Don’t worry about the cholesterol in your food
  • Pay attention to your portion sizes (here’s a great guide)
  • Dietary plans are individualistic – all food types can work
