Evening peeps, I have embarked upon this fun challenge along with many other bloggers inspired by www.keepinghealthygettingstylish.com. I have really been enjoying my green smoothies a lot more since my detox and am looking forward to trying different ones. I am just making it up as I go along but will definitely be trying some of Laura’s recipes once I get to the shops! So here are my first 2 days…
Monday: Kale, half banana, half pink grapefruit, hemp seeds and cashews, ice, flaxoil, phospholec lecithin granules, milk thistle and a spoon of Green Magic powder.
This was tangy, delicious and kept me going through my hour and half yoga sesh and I took the rest with me in my thermal cup and finished the rest off after, kept me happy till a late lunch. I often make a large amount and have half for brekkie and take the rest with me to work in flask or thermal cup to have around 4ish when I need something to keep me going until dinner.
Tuesday: Broccoli, spinach, frozen berries,half a banana, water, Pulsin’ pea protein powder ( as I was going for a run), macca, flax oil, phospholec lecithin granules, milk thistle and a spoon of Green Magic powder.
As you can see this one didn’t turn out green, mine often don’t! But it had a lot of green in it Green smoothies are such a fantastic start to the day packing in a variety of healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. They are a wonderful way to get your “superfoods”, extra supplements or herbs, EFA’s and a bit of added protein if needed. They are a brilliant way to get some healthy greens into your kids or anyone who isn’t generally a fan!
I will continue throughout the week and update you next week. I would love to hear from any of you who are enjoying their green smoothies at the moment and any fave recipes….
Till next time…Enjoy the sunshine
