I’ve eaten, drank and smoked a lot of questionable things in my life. I’m a baby boomer – on the very cusp of the younger side, of course! – but I’ve been hard on my body. I’ve always exercised, played sports, and got hammered. It’s what I did for YEARS.
The toll of all this carousing was not what you might imagine. I didn’t have compromised lungs, my liver wasn’t coughing and my kidneys could still dance. What I had was a whole bunch of toxins flowing through my brain. The rest of my body seemed able to metabolize the hell I threw at it. My brain did not. I was confused, sticky notes had become my magic rabbit’s foot against chaos and I felt like shit.
So on, with feeling, I changed. I began eating vegetarian meals 3 nights a week. That turned into vegetarian lunches as well. It was just easier. Then I started this publishing company (oh, who hasn’t!, you think) and decided to write a book about green smoothies because that’s all I had time for at lunch.
When you write a book about something, it’s best to be deeply involved. Thus, I began whirling my way toward more clarity, less blubber around the waist and more stability and quiet in my head. I didn’t feel as impulsive because I wasn’t having cravings. There was a flow. I slowly began to trust my brain more. I didn’t have to use all the sticky notes. I had short term memory! Could these green drinks do this? Yes, they could.
I speak to all women when I say this: brain is better than boobs, vagina, hair, shoes, handbags AND hair combined. Brain is the one thing you will never be able to go without. Brain is what makes you who you are. Feed it. Feed it a lot. With words and notes and pictures and most importantly……
Try it. You’ll be amazed at how much you trust your brain to do its magic again. http://amzn.to/1tfLwLk
