For several months now, my wife and I have been substituting some meals for blended smoothies we make at home. We watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead", bought the juicer and quickly realized how healthy the vegetable juices could be...but what a hassle with all of the produce shopping and prep.
So, we started adding in more smoothies with a very expensive blender. Handfuls of spinach or baby kale were blended with bananas or blueberries and some chia, nuts or protein powder. Yummy and pretty easy (though my wife is the one who prepares our smoothies).
Finally, about two weeks ago, a group of friends at our church started a Tuesday night group to begin The Daniel Plan. Though it pretty much followed along with the same juicing/blending guidelines, there is also a faith and fellowship component added to this plan. Nice.
Then, today I spoke with Neighbor Ted who now lives across the country. As we were catching up, he mentioned that he has been pretty successful lately with a "paleo" diet.
My question to you is this: Have you followed any of these plans (juice/blend/Daniel/paleo) and what is your assessment? Please let me know!
