I've been spending a lot of time on reading my Eat-Clean Diet Recharged book by Tosca Reno. I'm really trying to clean up my eating, so I've been constantly finding new and interesting links to help me on the road to success.
If you don't know about the FoodBabe she is behind you finding out that the lovely fresh bread made at subway, yeah, not so much. Her website is chock full of great investigations as well as tips on what types of foods you should be buying, as well as coupon codes for some great websites.
By following one of her coupons I ended up at The Maca Team where after reading a lot of information, ended up buying some Red Maca...I feel like it will be helpful for all my PCOSy bullshit. If you use the code FOODBABE you can get 10% off. I gotta tell you, I ordered the Red Maca on Friday and received in the mail on Monday. FAST DELIVERY! Now I'm still learning to mask the flavor a bit, the first day I drank just in water and it tasted kind of like tobacco to me, today I had it in a fruit smoothie and it was a bit better. I just have to find the right combo of fruits and veggies. Holy Energy Batman. Don't take Maca after 2 pm you won't be able to sleep.
Next up the Juice Recipe Builder what is great about this website is you can build a juice through your juicer and get the calorie content, OR solid in a smoothie and get the calorie content. This is so helpful especially if you juice like myself and also use myfitnesspal. Right along the Juicing theme, sometimes it's not convenient to have a homemade juice, either your juicer is dirty, you ran out of veggies, or it's just not convenient to carry around a cooler with a giant mug of juice, I found this cool website Pressed Juice Directory that points you to shops in your general area that sell organic fresh pressed Juice. Of course NH is severely lacking in this department, maybe I can buy a juicing franchise and start a new trend up here. Hmmmmmm
This is by far my FAVORITE website Food Facts it's the grocery store equivalent of EWG Skin Deep for Beauty products. You can look up any food on the food facts website (some aren't listed but if you send them a product you'd like looked into they will do it) and it will give you a score based on it's ingredients. I find this super helpful because as much as us would love to have a giant farm of fresh organic meats and vegetables we have to hit the grocery store some times.
With Spring coming and fresh fruits and veggies more readily available check out Local Harvest where you can plug in your zip code and find co-ops in your area, or farms and what they offer. Luckily NH has plenty of these.
I'm off to make my own Almond Milk and Almond Butter. Fresher and I know what's in it. My favorite thing to make in my vitamix, fresh almond or peanut butter. Yum.
