A few weeks ago, 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. I took the weekend off and missed two days due to travel. Because I signed up mid-challenge, I am no longer receiving specific weekly smoothies, so I will be picking my own from now until #30.
There is a sample/basic shopping list posted on my Facebook page – Fresh, Fit Life Facebook Page
Green Smoothie #18 : PB&J Berry Banana
The grown up healthy version of a PB&J (minus the bread) – I was in a pinch and used what I had available for this one! I still got my greens in – whoooo!! This was the perfect blend of fruitiness and nuttiness and with a good balance of nutrients served as the perfect meal last night!
