Posted Jan 01 2013 7:44pm
Happy New Year everyone! I have taken a mini-break from everything, but am back on board and so inspired and excited about 2013! I have a great feeling that this is going to be a spectacular year. Why not start off on a good note and join me in this 30 day green smoothie challenge - starting today! As you already know, I am a huge fan of green smoothies. It is the single most effective blanket 'prescription' that I most commonly recommend for patients. Simply by adding them to your diet you can increase your energy levels, improve digestion and elimination, support kidney and liver function, boost immunity, encourage clear, glowing skin, and enjoy a general sense of improved wellbeing. Tell me a pill that does that without side effects and I will eat my hat! In each serving you are drinking in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, fibre, and living plant love goodness!! Think of them as a multivitamin in a glass - but better! In as little as 15 minutes the green gorgeousness is into your cells to nourish, replenish, cleanse and energise - BAM!
And guess what - it's so our lucky day!! The beautiful people at Simple Green Smoothies have created a 30 day challenge, so that we can all show our outpourings of love for green liquid! Or maybe that's just me... Either way, get on board! All you need is a blender, some fresh produce, and the will add green smoothies to your diet every day for 30 days. The link will take you to the sign up page where you can download a recipe ebook to get you started - all for free, hooray! I will be posting regular updates on My Wholefood Romance's Facebook page to keep you inspired and blending away. And to get you started, here is my morning delight - seriously good I tell you! Do it!
Green Banana Spinach Smoothie This is quite a fluffy smoothie if you keep it quite thick - I like to eat it with a spoon. Ingredients: 1 orange, peeled 1/2 frozen banana 1/2 avocado A handful of spinach A large leaf of kale 1-2 tbs of chia (or similar) seeds 1/4 - 1/2 tsp spirulina, or as much as you can handle! 3-4 ice cubes Water depending on desired consistency
Add all ingredients to your favourite blender, blend and enjoy!
