Juicing... Green Smoothies...

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

I have entered the fine world of juicing and green smoothies. I have always been fairly anti-juicing because of losing all the fiber. I love juices but the recent developments with low potassium and magnesium made me rethink my previous thoughts (you don't have to believe what you think right?)

I have been having green smoothies daily. My Vitamix pulverizes banana, blueberries, kale, coconut oil, eggs and whatever else into a delicious thick smoothie. This becomes a meal to really tide me over.

No I added Juice! I can tell you it looks terrible... thick and dark green. I have found some of my favorite combinations are carrot, apple, kale, celery and lemon. I think I could drink carrot juice daily but not sure that is going to get me where I want to be when it comes to minerals and vitamins LOLOL.

In short. I have had juices and/or smoothies 2-3 times daily for the last two weeks, I have started losing weight again! I am down to 220 Wooot! that is 28 pounds down! I feel fabulous. I am starting to fit into old clothing again (not the real old clothing darnit). My hair and skin are smoothing out and I am hearing all sorts of compliments on my appearance.

So, in short, Yay for green smoothies and juices!

    If that is working for you, that is great! They do sound tasty. I've been known to make a peanut butter and banana smoothie with spinach for breakfast.

    Maybe I need to start juicing since I can't really workout for the next 4 weeks.

    Keep up the good work.
