To Meat or Not to Meat
Moderation creates balance and is key for almost all of life’s activities. If we work out moderately, 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week, we see marked improvements in our physicality, including better sleep, relative weight loss, and increased energy. Dr. Elise Bialylew, author of The Happiness Project tells us if we were to add just 10 minutes of meditation a day, we can greatly increase our immune system. If we added just a bit of reading into our daily routine, The American Academy of Neurology says we can increase our brain function in the long term. This can keep us sharper for longer, and slow cognitive decline well into our futures.
Breakfast, for example, could look like rolled oats with some agave or pure maple syrup, or maybe a little nut milk. Lunch could be a veggie and grain bowl, and dinner could be spaghetti squash and meatless meatballs. Get creative! There are so many resources out there for easily integratable recipes. Take a page from Organic Krush, and have some fun trying to recreate some of your favorite recipes. Order a vegan meal plan for more ideas and variation.
