Welcome

Welcome to nogreensmoothies.com!

My mission is to:

Show you that healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard!

Thanks to the rise in popularity of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, information about health and healthy eating is more accessible than ever. This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, it may lead to a warped sense of what “health” is and what “healthy” means. Scroll through some of the thousands of images and you might believe that in order to be healthy that you need to drink green smoothies, eat kale chips, have a thigh gap, and nosh on quinoa, gogi berries, acai and the like. Oh, and suddenly master complex yoga poses. On a beach. In your bikini. Naturally!

If you like doing these things, then by all means go for it, but I’m here to tell you that this is by no means the only way to be healthy! Healthy eating does not have to involve expensive, outlandish ingredients and nor should it have to be a complex process. I am so very passionate about this concept, about placing easy and useable information in your hands so you can be the best version of yourself. I want to help spread the word that healthy eating isn’t hard and good health is achievable for everyone!

I am frustrated and disheartened by the plethora of “health advice” peddled on the Internet and of the often unrealistic and narrow view of health and healthy eating that this medium takes. And thus, nogreensmoothies.com was created! This is my little contribution to the Internet to push back against the tide of outlandish health trends.

What I’m not about:

Diets, of any kind. Fad diets have been discussed endlessly, relentlessly. I think it’s about time we move past discussing things that don’t work, and focus on what will work. There will always be another diet peddled by a celebrity and I think it’s about time we stop giving them more attention than they deserve. Don’t you?

Dictatorship. I enjoy treats as much as the next person and am very much against the idea of depriving yourself of your favorite foods. It is not up to me to tell you what you should and should not be eating. I can only hope to give you information, what you do with said information is up to you.

Meal/diet plans. I won’t be supplying weekly/monthly meal plans because you aren’t learning anything. You are just passively soaking up information, investing time and money to end up at square one when the diet plan finishes-no clearer on healthy eating than when you started. I would rather give you the tools and information for you to create your own healthy eating plan-one that you can actually stick to.

Perfection. Life happens. We have to be adaptable to changing environments and let’s face-it no ones perfect. You are going to skip gym occasionally, drink more wine than you wanted to and have “blah” days. It’s okay, everyone (including me!) falls of the wagon every now and again.

Stay tuned for more information!
