Happy Healthy Friday! What Are You Doing Today to Feel Good?

Ever since I purchased my personal health appliance (my Vitamix of course) back in May, I have been using it at least three times a day.  When I first got it, I was making a blended green / veggie drink in the morning and a couple of frozen fruit protein smoothies during the day – well actually pitchers of them …

A couple of weeks ago I was convinced to try removing all the fruits (except for tomato and avocado) from my nutritional intake because of the fact that most of the fruits we get today are genetically modified with higher levels of fructose (sugar) than I want to put in my body.  I am still using the Vitamix 2-3 times a day, but exclusively for my blended green protein drinks.  They are oh so tasty – and help me feel GREAT!
If you are ready to buy a Vitamix, you can use this link to get FREE shipping!  I purchased a reconditioned model that saved me over $100 – and it still has a 5 year warranty!
You might have also noticed that I’ve been adding Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein and chia seeds from Chosen Foods to all of my blended green protein drinks.  I am really hoping that both of those companies will want to become sponsors of the Juicing in 48 States Tour that I’m almost ready to announce …

Everyone Gets a Choice – What Kind of Choices Are YOU Making?

One of the coolest things about this life is that we all get to make choices.  You and you alone decide what goes into your body.  You can abuse your body and mind by drinking all kinds of sugar drinks and/or alcohol – or you can choose to drink lots and lots of water, and blended drinks made from nourishing an oh so tasty veggies.  

What did you CHOOSE to drink this morning?  

That’s a good question, but the better question is “What will you CHOOSE  to drink tomorrow morning?”

Green Drink of the Day from Joe Abs and His Vitamix

Here’s a photo of my green drink of the day – pre-blending in the Vitamix – and pre-consuming in my belly …
I usually add Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein as well as chia seeds from Chosen Foods to all my green smoothies …  you might want to as well.
I’m hoping that all of these companies will want to be valued sponsors for my upcoming Juicing in 48 States tour of the US …  Know any other companies that might want to be involved?  Please let me know ..

Shout Out to BeachBody Inc – the Producers of P90X and Insanity

Very cool news today – I was contacted by Cara from Beachbody Inc about this blog.  I feel a little bad that I haven’t been as active here as I would like, but it is cool to find out that people are finding it anyway …
BeachBody Inc. is probably the leader in marketing (at least in advertising) of health and

fitness programs.  They put out a huge number of home fitness programs including Insanity, P90X and P90X2.  Their programs are generally really really good – although I have never gotten into them enough to know if they stress nutrition like it needs to be – I just assume that they do, because their customers seem to get results.

I’m assuming that the good people at BeachBody.com are just wanting to see if I can help advertise and sell their products through an affiliate program on this site.  I’d really have to think strongly about that, because I’ve never actually used the products – and although their programs are probably very very good for younger people, I’ve stayed away from them because I’m an older guy with some pretty major physical issues – including herniated discs in my neck (which basically disabled me when I was much younger).
It would be super cool if Beach Body wanted to talk about putting together a health and fitness program for those of us in the 40 years + age group …  I think I could do a good job – and am certainly enough of a personality to make it work – and I am currently available for this kind of work ….  What do you think?  A Joe Abs Fitness Program for the 40+ crowd by Beach Body?  That could be cool …  Maybe they’ll follow up – or even give me a call 425-429-8590 …
Update:  7/6/15 – Beachbody never followed up, but I am currently writing the book for the Joe Abs Clean Eating Live-It – and planning more Juicing Naked videos.
