Now, I have an Instagram account, which I am unhealthily obsessed with (are there healthy obsessions??) and from following different people, I came upon this 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge and I thought, Hey! I wanna do that!
So I am.
I just signed up for the challenge (literally, like 5 minutes ago) and it begins tomorrow! I kind of started it today and I say "kind of" because I didn't just have a smoothie for lunch. I also had a a piece of my flatbread, which I slathered with almond butter.
Today's lunch left me feeling healthy, energized and satisfied...perhaps a little too satisfied, actually. The smoothie, more than anything, was SO filling. All of it didn't even fit in the glass and that said, I drank the remainder of what did not fit. It sure was yummy though. I got the recipe for the "Joyful" smoothie from Joy MccArthy's blog, Joyous Health. I just love her and she truly inspires you to want to be healthier.
The "challenge" is to have a green smoothie instead of a meal every day for 30 days. Simple Green Smoothies, the organizers of the challenge, will send a smoothie recipe each day as well as tips for living a healthier lifestyle! Gotta love that!
I will do my very, very best to post a picture of my daily smoothie on my blog in addition to my post "theme" for that day.
To health and happiness in 2013!!
