Learn To Love Kale…Your Body Will Thank You.

I can’t tell you how many times I hear people say, “Oh that’s too healthy!” I am baffled because on the contrary I bet if you were to ask these same people how satisfied they are with their bodies- they would probably be on the lower side on the scale from 1-10. I think in any aspect of life, sometimes you have to train your body to learn to love certain things. It’s not like I wake up every single day of my life excited to workout (let’s get real). Sometimes I am so sore or just tired that I would rather not- but I know when I finish a great workout I never wanted to start it is the best feeling in the world. Where am I going with this? If you would have told me 4 years ago I would love Kale I would have told you that you were NUTS! In the last 8 months (hard to believe) I have been a part of a workout community that has changed my body in ways I never knew were possible. With that said, protien is extremely important in the recovery process because it supplies your body with structural components known as amino acids, which are vital to improving your body composition. As a vegetarian people always ask the common question, “How do you get your protein?” I have never once heard of a protein deficiency- but with that said it is important to have a well balanced diet w/ or w/o meat. And don’t be fooled, if you aren’t eating sustainable meat, chances are your source/benefits of protein might be in question as well.

When I find new products I sometimes become obsessed and them stop using them months down the road. I love new (I need to work on this!)  I just bought this protein powder again and am ready to tackle the necessities that go with compeleting a great workout. It’s a new year and I can’t wait to see my body change even more. If you hate kale you can always add to any smoothie. The smoothie can include anything-  I usually add kale, raspberries, strawberries, a banana and a little orange juice. If it’s too tart I will add a drop of agave just for a natural sweet. Don’t knock it before you try it.
