It’s back to the kitchen for me as I prep for my week of greens and juices.
For the life of me I’m not entirely sure what combinations I’ll be making or what the final outcome would be; but I’m giddy with excitement.
Cheers to tasty green smoothies.
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?
It pays to pre pack.
I am always busy. Breezing out to work early and coming in late. So when I read a post on Pinterest about packing and freezing green Smoothie Mixes I was like, that post was meant to save me this week.
So I present my Raspberry Green Smoothie mix. Consumed after getting my butt kicked by Charlene Johnson’s Turbo Fire and Charlean Extreme.
What’s in the blender?
3 cups Spinach
2 cups Raspberries
2 cups Plums
1 Avocado Pear
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Water
2 tablespoons Almond nuts
Ever since I could remember I’ve been hounded about my weight so from a very young age I started exercising with my mum who was also trying to slim down.
As I think back to my hits, misses, partial successes and complete failures at weight-loss, I have to commend myself on my consistency in at least keeping the struggle alive.
Today I start yet another weight-loss adventure in Green Smoothies which will replace 2 of my meals for the next 7 days. Fear not for me dear friends cos I know I will survive.
So cheers to all those who drink their lunch as against eating it.
