Last weekend I signed up for the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge from http://simplegreensmoothies.com/30-day-challenge. Co-founders of the site are Jadah & Jen – two mothers who are passionate about health, life, and creating delicious green smoothies. What I really loved about them is that they don’t view this as a diet, but rather a lifestyle!! True that – how can you not love them already?! Check out their site to learn more about them and what their mission is.
I have REALLY been enjoying this challenge…if you are joining me, how do you feel?? I have noticed an increase in energy and my body just feels good. The smoothies I have tried so far have all been really tasty and satisfying – I have usually been drinking them for breakfast or lunch and they keep my quite full!!
I realized that I signed up mid challenge, so I only received four recipes to end this month – I used a few of those and selected the rest of the recipes for Week 2 on my own. I posted the Week 2 shopping list on my Facebook page – Fresh, Fit Life Facebook Page
Green Smoothie #8 : Sweet Dream
I actually had to change the spinach to kale on this one because I was out of spinach…and I ran out of mango so I substituted peaches for the remaining portion. I am going to be honest…I was nervous to try this one with the cinnamon and cayenne pepper on the list of ingredients but I added a surprisingly delightful warmth. It almost reminded me of a peach cobbler or apple pie!! Geoff is home this week so I asked him to try some….and he asked for his own!! Looks like I have found a friend to share my greens with this week 🙂
