30 Day Challenge

Hi I'm Angeli! I set up challenges for myself and see if I can stick to them for 30 days. Right now I'm doing a Vegetarian/Smoothie challenge where I follow a strict vegetarian diet, and make a different healthy smoothie everyday.

Feel free to join me or message me :) Wish me luck!

All of the images are created by me.

Jeff’s 30-Day Juicing Challenge: DAY 30 (with a smoothie recipe and progress pictures!)

Click here for Hi-Res

I enjoyed this challenge. I learned a lot about my body during this time due to the extremities I pushed it through. I learn how to adapt my juice for my body, and what would be a reasonable amount for me going forward. I’m happy with my results (I lost 5 lbs and 1% BF), and I believe my results would’ve been better if I pushed myself to go to the gym! To be completely straightforward, I wasn’t perfect. I gave up couple times, I didn’t drink juice for a day here and there, and there were days I felt miserable. I think the important thing is that I kept pushing on. What did I get out of this? Well physically, my skin improved. Lots of people started to comment on how I “glowed” and my redness started to go away. This could’ve been a result of so many other things, but I’m going to run with it anyways. Also, I’m not eating as many fatty things. I hope it lasts, my mind is definitely on providing myself with healthier alternatives wherever I can. Going forward, I hope to combine 16oz. of juice throughout the day, with a healthy diet, and working out. I wish everybody luck on whatever their journey may be. 

Green Kale Smoothie recipe: 1 kale leaf, a handful of spinach, 2 tbsp of peanut butter, 1-2 bananas, ice, 1 avocado, 1 cup of water

I chose this smoothie because it’s a great alternative to drink when you’re juicing and/or as a supplement to any diet. The greens will provide great levels of various minerals and is a good source of Vitamin A, C, and K! The banana has potassium for people who want to prevent cramps, the avocado provides great healthy fat, and the peanut butter gives that extra protein boost for muscle repair in people who work out.

The smoothie was very palpable due to the overwhelming taste of the peanut butter, which makes it seem like you’re cheating on your diet even though you’re not!

I give this smoothie a 4.5/5.

This information about BMI is interesting. Goes to show that you can&#8217;t trust all of the information given by the medical community.
Thanks for this!

DAY SIXTEEN: IS BMI ACCURATE?

I found this “Top 10” list on National Public Radio’s (NPR) website rather interesting. It’s titled, “Top 10 Reasons Why The BMI Is Bogus" and it can be found here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106268439. Basically, the article states that BMI is mathematical nonsense that was invented 200 years ago by a Belgian named. Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet, who goes on to state that it should not be used to measure the level of fat in an individual. 
I, myself, use a body fat analyzer to track my progress. The reason is that weight itself doesn’t give me a thorough idea of my current state. I must be losing fat, and try to hold on to as much lean body mass as I can. This was important when I was attempting to lift weights (but I haven’t ever since I tore my rotator cuff) to justify the extra weight I was gaining as lean muscles. I use the Omron Body Fat Analyzer HBF-306C (http://www.amazon.com/Omron-Monitor-model-HBF-306C-Black/dp/B000FYZMYK). Maybe not this exact model, because mine is a few generations old, but it’s the same concept. I try to do this every week at the same time (usually Saturday mornings when I’m not rushed) because I try to make sure that my body is in same state (No new food in body, no water, etc) Make sure that you’re properly hydrated or else the reading may be off because it uses electric currents that run throughout your body to get a reading. 
Keeping physical proof of my progress is a great motivator and gives me up to date information on where I stand. I encourage everybody to try it out for themselves.

"Hi I'm someone who doesn't eat a lot of vegetables or fruit but I would really love to start trying to ease myself into a vegetarian lifestyle. I would love to start eating more vegetables and fruit but I don't know where to start. Could I please get some advice about starting this?"

You can start by making fruit smoothies! haha. For example, make a simple strawberry and banana smoothie or a banana and peanut butter almond milkshake, and then as you go, add leafy greens and colorful vegetables to your fruit smoothies like spinach, beets, etc. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different foods! Then in no time, you’ll get used to eating vegetables and fruits, and eventually ease into a vegetarian lifestyle :) 

How To Make Apple Chips with the Sedona Combo Dehydrator

Step 1: Slice apples into thin pieces. I recommend using the Choison V-Slicer. It’s a little pricey, but it makes cutting produce a lot easier. 

Step 2: Load them up on the dehydrating trays. Make sure they are spaced evenly and that each slice don’t touch each other so that they won’t stick together while dehydrating.

Step 3: Set the Sedona Combo Dehydrator to Combo Mode. Set the FAST mode temperature to 155 degrees for 3 hours to jump start the dehydrating process. Then, set the RAW mode temperature to 118 degrees for 5-7 hours to keep the dehydrating process going while still maintaining the raw nature of the food (118 degrees is the temperature that raw food proponents believe that food should only be heat up to to maintain the natural enzymes that are beneficial to our health). 

Step 4: Take out the apple chips from the dehydrator and enjoy!

I had a lot of fun making this haha :)

"That’s good!" 

This is a smoothie that I can drink with little to no guilt. I’m not big on sweets, but knowing that this was all natural with no added sugars allowed me to enjoy it. This was a great combination of fruits, but it was a little bit on the sour side. Does anyone know how I could combat that? Anyways, I would rate this a 3.9/5.
