30 day green smoothie challenge
I set monthly goals at the beginning of every month. One of my goals for August is to do a 30 day green smoothie challenge. My purpose for this goal is to increase my daily vegetable servings. (I mentioned that I wasn't feeling vegetables lately). My go to green smoothie is a big handful of spinach, 1 banana, and 1 cup of soy milk. Sometimes I add Greek yogurt, but I prefer without. I did try a kale smoothie, but I didn't like it. I was also in a rush and didn't blend as well as I should have. One word: chunky. *gag* I'm trying to expand my options, but I'm nervous to put in any other vegetable. Do you have any tried and true green smoothie recipes you'd like to share?
I'm going to complete this challenge even if it's not for 30 consecutive days. (I've done 15 so far). When I complete the challenge, I plan to list some of the benefits I've noticed. I'll tell you one right now- I've lost 2 pounds. I can't say it's directly correlated to the smoothies (look at me putting my Methods and Statistics class from college to use), but maybe it is! ;)
Seriously. Maybe it is! Share some green smoothie recipes if you have 'em.
