Drew gained international media attention from his journey of gaining and losing 75 lbs. on purpose by blogging and writing a NY Times Best Selling book about it (Fit2Fat2Fit). Drew dives into why diets don't work, why people lose weight only to gain it back. Why does it seem so hard? Because focusing on just nutrition and exercise is missing the mark. Overall health and wellness is key to long-term success and often our industry neglects this. Drew answers your questions and interview leaders in the industry to share secrets about real transformation and long term success. Health is not just working out and eating wholesome foods, it is also mental, emotional, and spiritual. Change comes from the inside out so join us on this journey!

Little changes can make all the difference in your family's health. Our bodies need the nutrients fresh food contains. Processed foods may seem easier at the time but the toll it takes on our bodies is enormous. If you want to feel better, lose weight and increase your energy levels try a green smoothie. It’s as simple as dumping vegetables and fruits in a blender. It’s nature’s pharmacy in a glass.

GreenSmoothieGirl's PINK Breakfast Smoothie!

1 1/2 cups coconut juice

1/4 cup raw cashews

2-4 large dates, pitted

1 large chunk of a raw beet, peeled

1 large carrot, in chunks

12 large frozen strawberries (or a 10 oz. bag)

 

Blend all but strawberries in a turbo blender until smooth. Add strawberries and blend 90 seconds until smooth. Enjoy immediately!

Note: I like to ferment my coconut juice using water kefir grains, for probiotics for gut health! I keep it on my counter every day, to drain off into my blender, and "start" some new "coconut juice kefir."
