Are You Doing This Right + Beginner Green Smoothie


Most of us have been conditioned to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same, set times every day, and to avoid food between meals. This is generally how it’s been done since the days of old.

There are numerous things that can trip you up along the way – fear, false information, excuses, addiction to crappy food- these can all come into play and work against your badass, plant eating efforts.

You’re basically stuck in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
