Weekly Photo Challenge : New

I’m far from being vegetarian.  In fact, I jokingly call myself a “flexitarian” (a part-time vegetarian). I do my best to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my diet as often as I can.  It’s not always easy because I’m so accustomed to eating meat and processed foods. So, a few years ago, I decided to be more mindful of what I put into my body and how I treat my body.  I read more health articles and I incorporate the use of apps like Fooducate and Water My Body into my lifestyle.   I try to eat less meat and more vegetables.  I even have a Nutribullet that I use to make all sorts of juice. 

But with all the reading and mindfulness,  I never got around to having wheatgrass– until today.   And now, having tried it, I’m glad that I made the choice.  Don’t get me wrong,  it still tastes like freshly mowed grass and has an undesirable aftertaste.   I’m still glad I drank the shot.  I figure that I could have had a glass of soda/coffee/shake/smoothie, but it would just do more bad than good.  I would only regret the empty calories and how it’ll just make me feel sluggish and unsatisfied.

I’m hoping that this choice to down wheatgrass shots instead of soda will help me to make more healthy choices and substitutions.  

Making any changes health wise?   Let me know in the comments below.
