Last time the topic of discussion was Starting the New Year Off Right. Today is a follow-up to that article as one of many key aspects to your life is your health. This is why I decided to invest $50 in my health. I used the word invest and I’m not even talking about the stock market here.
HOW TO INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH
A big part of your health is your diet. The saying, “You are what you eat” has a lot of truth to it. Studies have shown that a large group of people do not consume the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables. Personally, I tend to consume more fruits than vegetables. The reason for this is that fruits are easy to take on the go. I put a banana or apple in my purse and it serves as an excellent snack during the work day at the office. With vegetables, this is not so much the case.
Being very focused on our health, my boyfriend and I decided it was time to buy a juicer. We researched the market and found a good one for $50. Since purchasing our new juicer, I have drastically increase my vegetable intake as I can now take it in liquid form. Carrot juice is amazing and so fresh. I can’t wait to try new concoctions and keep on consuming more vegetables on my way to an even healthier lifestyle! I have always loved juice so this was a great solution to eat more vegetables!
Buying a juicer can be a great solution to increasing your produce intake. Often, people do not have enough fruits and vegetables in their regular diet. I’m very happy with our investment and I am excited about living a healthy life in 2012.
Do you consume enough fruits and vegetables? Are you ready to make an investment in your health? Have you made other investments in your health? We’d love to hear your stories.
