Okay so SNAP is over and I’m caught up on orders and after Thursday I won’t even have preschool to worry about. Whew! The busy-ness can take a break for a while. And that means that I CAN get back on track with my diet. Starting with eating all the junk food that is in my house (cuz you know, it’s gotta get out the way.)
But starting today, I am going to start fresh. And the best way to start fresh is to have a green smoothie every morning. This recipe is ZERO points, filling, and actually pretty tasty. If you’re weirded out by the color just put it in a mug or something so you can’t see the color. My kids love these and it’s a great way to get them to eat vegs.
1 Cup Raw baby spinach
1 Cup Water
1-2 Cups Frozen Fruit
1 T. Truvia
Start by making a spinach “juice” base. Put 1 cup of raw baby spinach in your blender and about 1 cup of water and blend until it’s liquid. The you can add a banana and 1-2 cups of frozen fruit depending on how thick you want it. And I add one tablespoon of Truvia to sweeten it up a bit.
Challenge: Drink 8 oz of this every morning for a week (along with low-calorie diet) and you should see some improvements!
