5 Steps For Making This Your Greenest Year Ever

January 30, 2019

Here are five concrete ways you can make this your body’s greenest year and reap the benefits of a cleaner, more energetic and vibrant healthy life.

1. Cut out sugar.
Avoid candy, soda, and processed carbs (cakes cookies crackers, muffins and bread) wherever possible. Eat only naturally occurring sugars that come in fruits and vegetables. And if you’re having a hard time sticking to this goal, try a sugar detox – sometimes the only way to quit is cold turkey.

2. Have a full plate of greens every day.
Whether you are Paleo or Vegan or think both ideas are ridiculous, everyone agrees that greens are gold. They are a delicious low-calorie nutrient dense way of ensuring that you get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber content that are critical to good digestion and overall health. Spinach, kale, chard and mustard greens are great places to start!

3. Get a standing desk.
Or find other ways to spend at least 5 hours a day on your feet – instead of on your butt. New research is showing that genes that have been linked to obesity weren’t always a problem, but that living less active more sedentary lifestyles has turned once harmless genes into ones that make us more likely to gain weight and develop diseases like diabetes.

4. Toss toxic cleaning products.
Rethinking the soaps sprays detergents and powders living under your sink are an easy way to go green. Brands like Method and Seventh Generation are in almost every drug store these days and are not only more environmentally friendly they exclude common toxins found in cleaning products like phthalates, parabens, triclosan, and chlorine – a commonly consumed toxin that replaces iodine in receptors disrupting thyroid function in some people.

5. Take care of your brain!
More and more exciting research is coming out about how foods and behaviors affect brain health and can increase your risk of dementia and Alzheimers. Some of the easiest ways I believe you can take care of your brain are numbers 1-4 above: cut out sugar, eat more greens, stand and move more, and remove unnecessary toxins from your life!
