Today I want to talk to you about a subject that’s very near and dear to my heart.
Can you guess what it is?
It’s about learning to let go and forgive yourself.
It’s about accepting that nothing in life is perfect and that includes diet and healthy eating.

I have to admit I’ve struggled with this myself for a very long time.
I would eat all of this healthy food for weeks and I would make one slip when eating out or I would have a piece of chocolate at a friend’s house and I would get so angry with myself.
I would beat up myself for days as if this little treat I ate was the end of the world.
The thing is, treating yourself occasionally is actually good for your diet.
When you eat pretty healthy all of the time you are bound to a get a craving or two for something sweet or a crunchy snack.

This is normal!
Food should bring us good health and enjoyment, not repression and negative thoughts.
I want you to understand that eating a piece of chocolate once in a blue moon is not the end of the world.
Eating a handful of salty chips during “that time of the month” won’t derail all of your hard work developing those healthy eating habits.
So, the next time you dive into your cravings, remember this…
We are all human. We all try our best and sometimes we all need a bit of chocolate in our lives!
The most important thing is that you try your best and when it comes to healthy eating, this translates to eat as healthy as you can and don’t beat yourself up when you make a little slip.
Instead, try having an extra big leafy green salad the next day.
Or even better, make yourself a big smoothie packed with leafy greens. Like this Green Monster Smoothie!

Thinking of treating yourself to a new blender? I recommend you get a high speed blender for making Green Thickies as it will turn out incredibly smooth and free from green chunks! It is also so much faster than using a standard blender.
The blender I recommend and love is a Blendtec as you can just press the button and it performs the magic. You don’t have to do anything! (plus you can make your own healthy nut butters and frozen fruit ice cream which kids and adults adore).
The only thing about high speed blenders is they are expensive. I truly believe they are worth the investment and the best thing I ever bought as I use it so often.
But if you don’t want to splash out on a brand new high speed blender right now, a good alternative is to get yourself a refurbished blender because they are like new – but a lot more affordable.
Blendtec’s latest discount on refurbished blenders is now live! This month, the following deal is available:
30% off the price of refurbished blenders. These blenders are certified refurbished which means they have passed full inspection and meet the stringent standards that Blendtec hold for their machines. With a full 7-year warranty, these discounted reconditioned blenders will perform and delight for many years to come!

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
