FUEL UP ~
Feeding our Bod, Brain & Being 4 Heroic Living
There’s a reason why Captain America isn’t the poster child for Dorittos. 💪And Ironman isn’t seen taking the Pepsi Challenge (do they even have that anymore?). 😕
If we put in foods that drain and depleat us, we can make plans for couch chilling or sluggish surviving. If we choose foods and habits that fuel us, our reward is sparky ideas, seemingly endless energy and sights set on shifting the world for WoW, not just switching the channel.
There is essential knowledge and action here for us all. We need to not only get it, but do it and then, if we are in the presence of any youngins, we need to lead them in the ways of WELLth too.
In our family, we kick-start, or inject our days, with XG Juice (aka Xtraordinary Game-Changers’ Juice).
Do our boys of 7 and 8 always love it? Nope. Do we care? Nope, not about whether they love the healthy fuel we’re serving up, but we absolutley care about instilling in them the knowledge and habits that will serve their vitality long-term.
We have always addressed openly and with ease their questions about,
“Whhhhyyyy do I have to drink this?”
“Because my loves, much of the world has lost its way when it comes to healthy choices, and we want you to know and live better. We have been given an amazing responsibly in this life, to be your parents and guide you well. Part of this isn’t giving you all you want, but giving you what you need.”
And then with a quirky smile and a bad Russian accent, they’ve come to know well, I say,
“Some things we eat because-a we love dem, and some things we eat-a because we know they are good-a for-a us. And it is my job to make-a you… Strong Like Bull.”
We laugh and we drink.
Thus is the way of life. We may not always love what we are doing or eating at the time, but we come to understand the value of the action and how it ultimately makes us feel. We are in for the long-range gain and so we must own our responsibility in the moment to do what is right, for ourselves and those we love.
And so we share with you one of our XG Juice recipes. Easy-peasy and we guarantee overtime, it will make you Strong Like Bull!!
As you can see… it’s simple.
All you need is a juicer (also works in the blender if need be).
~ 2 Apples / 1 Cucumber / 3 Sticks Celery / Ginger
~ Pour into your fave hero-cup,
~ Raise your glass yourself or with those you serve, & recite the following
I am a ma-chine of Xtraordinary! I am strong, courageous and crazy Awesome. I fuel my bod for health so I have the energy to Shift the World for WoW! Yea XG-Me or Yea XG-Team!!
(Now you may have your own version of cheers, but don’t knock the affirmation bit before you try it. We’re always looking to Step Up in our heads to speak to our Heroic selves more directly more often. So pick any positive Cheers that works for you. But Do It.)
~ Sip and WHAMMO… You are feeling instant WoW!!
~And then take those yummy pulp bits and scrape into a big pot with filtered water, simmer for a few hours, drain and there you have your veggie stock for XG-Soup too.
