Episode 104: The Power of Green Smoothies & Green Juice

Ep: 104  – The Power of Green Smoothies & Green Juice – Today’s podcast is about taking your nutrition to the next level. If you do not juice and blend fruits and vegetables daily, you are missing vital elements to a good solid healthful foundation.  My go to book for Green Smoothies is called Green For Life by Victoria Boutenko and My go to book for juice recipes is called The Juiceman’s power of juicing by Jay Kordich.

The message of today, is to take charge of your life and health and incorporate fresh homemade juices and smoothies.

You can simply google recipes for juicing and smoothies and find hundreds if not thousands on the internet. Today’s podcast is about adding both smoothies and juices into your everyday life.

Recipe 1. Banana, apple, greens; romaine lettuce or any green works, water, ginger, and turmeric. Go easy with the amounts of ginger at first. Recipe 2.  Kale, water, romaine, cilantro, celery, pineapple, papaya, cantaloupe, ginger, and frozen banana. Recipe 3. Peaches, Spinach, and water. Recipe 4. Banana, romaine, strawberries and water. Recipe 5.Apricots, banana, blueberries, Read Leaf lettuce and water.

In regards to juices, use carrot and apple as your base for many juices. Remember 1/4 of each recipe is Green on any and all green juices. And buy Organic.

I mention the documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead for inspiration with juicing. I forgot to mention The Gerson Therapy by Charlotte Gerson a documentary and a book, very very inspiring.  I also like adding lemon, celery, cucumber, jalapeno and greens to my daily juice regimen. Google the Lemon Ginger Blast. An awesome juice recipe.

Episode 101: Five Key Tips For Weight Loss

Episode 101: Five Key Weight Loss Tips

Today’s podcast is about Five tips that can catapult your onset to weight loss and assist you with  shredding 10 to 20 pounds of stubborn fat reserves.

Tip number one; reduce the morning calories to 100 or less. You could do this by skipping breakfast and or your latte. Or you can reduce whatever you are doing to 100 calories. Remember coffee and tea are free from calories until you add sweeter, cream and or milk.  Black coffee with a dash of organic sugar or high grade real maple syrup, will help you gradually reduce your standard routine. Then you can slowly eliminate the sweeter and then the coffee. Coffee and tea are appetite suppressants, so depending on your health goals, you may need this crutch for awhile.

Tip number two; eat the bulk of your calories at lunch. And if you can,  push lunch until 3 or 4pm

Tip number three; never snack on processed foods.  And eliminate snacking. If you have to snack because you are feeling weak then eat an apple or a banana or celery or carrots.

Tip number four; drink 16 to 32 ounces of water three times per day. A good time to do this is once when you get up from a night’s sleep, then about 3 hours after the first one and the third around 1 hour prior to your last meal.

Tip number five; walk 30 minutes per day everyday. This is in addition to everything else you do activity wise.

Bonus tip one…your last meal of the day under 500 calories or this meal should be less than your total lunch calories. If you are going to break this rule eat it 3 hours before you go to bed. This is very important!

Bonus tip two...5 days per week are very regimented and your days off from work or pick two days a week where you have some freedom. This is not a license to cheat but there is a sense of freedom, for example you could have a latte or go out to breakfast.  But you would still drink your water,  walk,  workout etc.  And remember the majority of your calories would still be midday. 

So that’s what I have for you this week. My name is Robyne Hemingway and you are listening to Hemingway’s Heart.

Episode 96: How to Know if You are Healthy

Ep 96: How to know if you are healthy

In today’s episode we explore many of the particles that determine how healthy you are.  We also discuss the various types of dietary plans such as the fruitarians, vegetarians, vegans and variations like 80 10 10, Paleo, Mediterranean, keto and so on.

So, how to we know which is best? We hear calorie restriction is key, then we hear it’s not key it’s the production of insulin that is making us fat.

Also, we hear, you need lots of protein and then we hear no that’s bad too. So, how do we muddle through all of this confusion?

And to make it more interesting and often complicated, we have other factors that have direct correlation with how food assimilates such as stress, happiness, good quality sleep, exercise, water, air, work-life, family-life, social-life, environmental-life, and people. And each one of those previously mentioned has an impact on what our bodies do with the food we consume.

bottom-line, we need to always look at all of these evaluating them daily, weekly and monthly to ensure that we do not just hope we are healthy but instead we are actively making decisions that have greatest impact on our lives.

My name is Robyne Hemingway, thank you for listening to Hemingway’s Heart

PS I encourage you to always research these diets on your own and when making choices on how you want to eat, whole plants  will always serve you well. Eat plenty of Fruits and Vegetables everyday.
