Are you getting your greens on for this week? :p
We all know (intellectually) that we are what we eat, and that this is waaay easier said then done! Our bodies are never staying the same-- they are constantly in a state of repairing / rejuvenating. But, how long does it *really* take your body to rebuild itself??
Interested? Me, too!
Let's check it out. :)
Liver = 5 months
Taste buds = 10 days
Brain age = same as your age
Heart age = 20 years (wow! take care of you heart :)
Lung age = 2-3 weeks
Skin age = 2-4 weeks
Intestines = 2-3 days (this is why you can eat like trash for a few days, feel rotten, then-- switch your diet and in 3 days feel a whole lot better! high turn over there....)
Red blood cells = 4 months

Isn't this cool info?! It's always great to be reminded that our bodies ARE for us-- constantly building us up!
So, are you getting your greens on today? :p I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
