Meatless Monday - Challenge Update and Announcement

Monday, July 1, 2013

Today is day 1 of the no-cheese challenge and the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge! Check and check, folks! No cheese, green smoothie. Feels GOOD! I got a lot accomplished today. I could have edited more, but I got my run on and wow. It felt amazing. I missed it! I've been on a three-day break. So it felt really great to get back on the treadmill. Yay!

Also, I have an announcement! I recorded a five-part series of videos about the five things I believe are essential to my lifestyle. When I switched, the food was really the most important. But I quickly realized that it was more than just food. So I made videos about what's really important and what you should include if you want to live to achieve health. I can't wait to share them with you!!

Meatless Monday Recipe:
It's time for a Meatless Monday recipe! In honor of the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge, I give you the recipe for the green smoothie I made this morning. It's perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can swap ingredients and really make this recipe your own. It has calcium, protein, and lots of potassium. Enjoy!
Green Banana Smoothie
Ingredients:
  • 2 kale leaves, no stems
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 6 bananas, peeled
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 8 ice cubes
Add kale leaves and water to the blender. Blend until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender. Blend until smooth.
Simple as that! Feel free to swap kale for spinach or other leafy green. Don't like bananas? Add mangoes, grapes, or oranges instead. Want something more than water? Use coconut water or orange juice for a vitamin punch. Yum!
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.
(And a green smoothie on the daily)

Oh! I can't wait to see your videos! I'm doing better with eating more fruits and juices, but I still feel like I have a long way to go.

Even I feel like I have a long way to go. I have succeeded with the no-cheese challenge, but the salt one seems daunting. Haha!
