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 #10 : Green Tart Smoothie
I shared today’s smoothie with my husband again – it was pretty much my lunch!! Now, if you are a texture person, I would highly recommend using your juicer for this one and just omitting the cup of water. I blended it and it is quite thick….think a salad in a glass!! I really liked it though and can’t wait to make it using my juicer.
