Now that I have established a regular jogging schedule it is time to turn my attention to a more healthy diet. When A Friend to Knit With posted about a challenge that she and her sister were doing during the month of May, my interest was peaked. A green smoothie? Hmmm……what is a green smoothie?
After reading a few more blogs about green smoothies I decided that I would join the 30 Day Challenge to a healthier lifestyle. After all, the green smoothie everyone talked about sounded far more appealing than the nasty barley green drink that I drank daily a decade ago. I’m hoping for more energy, a trimmer waistline and lesser desire for carbonated beverages.
How serious am I about doing this challenge? Well, I took the time to make a ‘button’ and here it is:
30 days. I think I can do this for 30 days. Only 30 days. But who knows, maybe some healthier habits will be developed. Supposedly, this will stop your craving for junk food. I have been doing this for two days and have been pleasantly surprised. There are zillions of green smoothie recipes out there for your googling pleasure. I just happened to grab what was on hand and threw it in my blender: 1 cup baby spinach, 1 cup orange juice, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup of frozen mixed berries.
I called my daughter to see if she wanted to join me. She said she would but she wasn’t making her smoothies ‘green’ and she wasn’t going to give up her Coke Zero. Anyone else want to join me that ‘will’ make their smoothies green? If you do, grab the button and post about it and then let me know so we can encourage each other!
