Finally, a book to help with the hard part of using smoothies to be healthier: actually making them every day so you can get all those wonderful vitamins, minerals, fiber, and more that you bought that fancy blender for in the first place!
The great thing about smoothies is how easy they are. But changing your daily routine is hard, no matter what. That's because the habits you're replacing are entrenched in your life and supported by your environment. No wonder so many of us struggle and often fail at sticking with new things when we try to just wing it. We shouldn't be surprised. It's hard!
You need a step-by-step plan for replacing a current habit with your new daily healthy smoothie habit that explains how habits work in simple language, that helps you build the single best defense against quitting, that acknowledges the fact that motivation is unreliable and gives you a super easy way to stick with your smoothies even when your motivation abandons you.
In Smoothie a Day I give you a plan that is based on the scientific research around habit formation according to bestselling books The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Hooked by Nir Eyal, Willpower by John Tierney and Roy Baumeister, as well as the Tiny Habits habit creation program from Dr. BJ Fogg of Stanford University, and articles from blogger James Clear from jamesclear.com.
My wife and I used the principles and tactics in Smoothie a Day the Easy Way to start our family's own daily healthy smoothie habit. Since July 30, 2015, all four of us, including our two young daughters, have had at least one healthy smoothie nearly every day. We get way more fruits and vegetables than we otherwise would AND we get to feel like parenting champs as we watch our kids grow up with healthy eating as their 'normal'.
If we can do it, you totally can too. We aren't special. We both work and have busy lives. The difference has been having a plan. Without it I'm sure we would've quit our smoothies a long time ago and our Vitamix would be hiding in a cupboard somewhere collecting dust.
You CAN do it! But if you're having trouble going it alone, Smoothie a Day the Easy Way can help. Give it a try :)
