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.
This is the last smoothie of week 1!! 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 #12 : Peanut Butter Cup
I am leaving for a spa weekend away so today was my active rest day. I woke up, took Abby & Layla for a nice quick walk and came home and finished with 15 minutes of yoga. Because I enjoyed the Almond Butter Cup smoothie so much, I thought I would make it again but use peanut butter instead. What a great idea – can’t really go wrong adding peanut butter to anything, right?! I won’t be posting smoothies over the weekend so I will be back on the bandwagon Sunday night. Have a great weekend everyone!!
