Foods with Benefits

I'm the first to admit: I'm a junkfood junkie. I'm not the type to reserve in-n-out for road trips only. I've always liked McDonalds, Taco Bell, you name it. Buttt, I really can't eat like that anymore. Not very often at least. My older sister has slowly converted me to a healthier me. I used to think that meant I can't eat great food. But that really isn't true. And I was always the person who that being healthy meant being picky (and annoying haha).

A few things I've learned:
+Ginger and lemon helps improve your digestion and makes your skin nice and glowy.
+ Brown rice and beans. Put ‘em together, and whaddaya got? The best source of protein!
+Use this website for recipes. She's the best.

Ooh and I need to share my FAVE smoothie. Tastes just like a chocolate shake. I get it from Nekter (a local juice bar) but you can totally make it at home. It has vanilla bean cashew nut milk, cacao, carob, dates, avocado, a little agave nectar and bleneded with ice. Yup avocado in a milkshake, who knew.
