Day 4: Is That Hunger Pangs I Feel? 

So it’s been 4 days since I last ate food or as my people would saysay, ‘since I last ate pepper’.  Does it feel weird? Not particularly. But I do feel the beginning of hunger pangs and a little bit of the woozies. 

Since these juices are meant to be meal replacements and are packed with the daily nutrients required, I am a little miffed that I might be a little under nourished. 

Saw somewhere that Whey Protein should do the trick but the price tags on those things made me almost burst into tears at the supermarket. There they were, mocking me and daring me to reach for the pack, which I didn’t. 

Going to stick with the recipes as is and hope that what I feel isn’t hunger pangs but me just missing the taste of pepper. 

So what am I drinking today? Well I decided to try 2 different smoothies today, so here goes. [Sorry no pix today] 

Mix 1:

1.  1.5 cup spinich

2. 2 bananas 

3. 1.5 apples

4. 1 cup Soya milk

5. Half cup water

6. 2 tablespoons Almond nuts 

7. Half an avocado

8. 1 tablespoon Chia seeds
Mix 2:

1. 1.5 cup spinach 

2. 1.5 cup strawberries 

3. Half an Avocado 

4. 1 banana 

5. 1.5 cup Soya milk

6. 1 tablespoon honey

7. 2 tablespoons cashew nuts

8. 2 tablespoons Chia seeds

I read somewhere that Chia seeds curb hunger so I’m doubly miffed about how I’m feeling right now. 

Smoothie Day 2: A Case Of Tummy Trouble

 

So it’s day 2 and I can’t say I have a hang of drinking my Green breakfast and lunch but I feel a little more confident about my chances of seeing this through to the end.

Backtracking a little to the early hours of the morning and my sensitive stomach’s response to my transverse into the world of healthy drinking, I felt I wouldn’t be able to make it out the door but I’m happy to report I eventually made it out, yippee.

So here’s my day in retrospect, 30 minutes of Shaun T’s Max Out Cardio and another 40 minutes of Cize, I had some nuts and downed my first cup of Greens. It was a miracle my stomach stayed stable while I was out seeing ‘Now You See Me 2’ which I must say was Amaze-balls so now it’s on to the last cup of greens.
