The 7 Day Green Smoothie Challenge hosted by Peanut Butter runner (college friend) and Real Food Runner is 3 days in. (So much great inspiration!)
So how am I doing?
Great! Its really nice to have my breakfast planned. Otherwise I'd be grabbing a bagel or croissant from the cafe at work - which is starting to show up on my bottom half. What every girl dreams of, I know.
But I didn't join this to loose weight - I joined this to really get some control of my mornings.
Good thing is - Green Smoothies are good! And they don't taste much different from a regular smoothie, they just look different. It's kinda like the 'sneaky chef' concept. I get several servings of fruits and veggies right at the start of a hectic working mama's day. What do I have to loose really?
Day 1 - Recipe Fail. Won't even share it. Almost gave up. Looked at other blogs, got re-energized.
Day 2 - 2 cups loose spinach, 4 strawberries, 1/2 banana, 1/2 avacado, 1/2 cup almond milk. YUM! Dark green, but good.
Day 3 - 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 avacado, 1 cup loose spinach, 1 cup chopped pineapple, 1/2 banana, 1 packet Stevia. The cucumber really threw me off so I added the sweetener. This was better the longer it sat and the pineapple sugars came out. Bright Green!
I am planning on another iteration of this tomorrow. Then I am going to be brave and switch from spinach to kale. Or maybe even try the chocolate/banana version by Real Food Runner.... hmm..
So I challenge you to join us! What do you have to loose?
