So I have been on a health kick...and this is not a whim but a necessary action! I need to feel better and dragging myself around all day is not a good feeling. I suspect it is lack of good food going in and proper physical activity, stress and lack of sleep.
And there's the crux of it all...lack of sleep...I go to bed early but sleep often evades me. I know I come by this honestly as my mom also struggles to get a good night sleep...which brings me to the reason behind this post. I was looking on Pinterest and found this amazing blog all about smoothies and good eating. I decided I needed to get more fruits and veggies in my diet and so I have begun making smoothies...
This is what I made today...I took a photo of it so you could see how green I was going! Now before you go judging my "green friend", let me tell you, it is delicious! And not just a little yummy but MEGA YUM FACTOR! I followed Arielle's recipe over at The Diva Dish. Here is the link http://thediva-dish.com/uncategorized/all-about-green-drinks-101/
Beginners Green Drink (Copied from Arielle's blog...the link is below)
1 C. non diary milk (Unsweetened Soy Milk)
2 C. spinach
1 frozen banana
1 TB. Chia Seeds (I used Flax Seeds)
1 tsp. Sweetener of choice (I used Stevia)
Optional: Peanut Butter
I did not try the peanut butter but I can imagine it would be awesome! You should give this a try...
