Day 7: All’s Well That Ends Well 

Talk about ending with a bang. Today’s Smoothie lineup is simply divine. This was really a treat. If your not a fan of peanut butter then this isn’t for you. 

Two recipes to congratulate myself in seeing this through. Because honestly, I don’t think I’ve completed any diet challenge since I started out the weight-loss journey. So for me this an accomplishment. 

Ran out and got me some protein powder yesterday so I could finish up. I was in tears as I handed over my card to pay but what can a girl do. 

So here goes, Recipe 1

2 cups Rice Milk

2 cups Spinach 

2 Bananas 

2 tablespoons Peanut Butter 

2 tablespoons Protein Powder 

4 tablespoons Chai seeds

Recipe 2

1 cup Spinach 

1 cup Soy Milk  

1 Banana  

1 cup Cucumber 

1 cup Apple 

2 tablespoons Protein Powder

Day 6: Is It Cheating If… 

It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. That’s what I keep telling myself to get through this 7 day Challenge. Will I continue incorporating green smoothies into meal plan going forward, yep I would. Yes it’s been challenging but I feel lighter, a little light headed and my tummy is shrinking [finally]. 

Getting back to my experiment with Chia seeds and Avocado, it does help curb hunger but not for long. I had to eat 2 hard boiled eggs and some Almond nuts  yesterday to curb the hunger pangs. 

Today I had a Pineapple and Banana Green Smoothie. Pretty straight forward – 3 cups Spinach, 2 cups Pineapple, 3 Bananas. Threw in some Chia seeds, Almond nuts and cashews. Now this is really tasty and satisfies my sweet tooth. 

To the cheating reference. I succumbed to the hunger pangs and got a salad for lunch/dinner. It’s veggies so I don’t think I’m derailing my progress. Or am I?

Day 5: I See The Light

Yesterday was hard. The headaches were bad so I had some All Bran before bed. Couldn’t exercise either so I’m feeling funny.So I did some early reading and found that my measurements were wrong. I was supposed to use more Chia seeds with the avocados or the oats or even with plant based protein powders. 

So here goes, My Strawberry, Blueberry Banana Mix

2 cups Spinach 

1 cup Strawberry 

1 cup Blueberry 

2 cups freshly squeezed Orange juice [the pix didn’t capture it] 

2 Bananas

1 cup Water 

1/4 Avocado 

4 tbs Chia Seed

A handful of Almond nuts

End product

Breakfast is served. Yummy. 

Hope this keeps me through the day.
