The weekend was very busy! When all 4 kids are home and we are running around checking off the events in their social calendar it leaves little time for writing a blog post. However, we did find time for the important things like our 2 year olds birthday party AND a green smoothie each day! The smoothies we made over the weekend were pink-green smoothies so my 5 year old would drink it but they still had all of that green power behind them! I posted pics on Facebook…take a look!
Today, I’m back to my bright green smoothies! I wasn’t sure what I wanted so I just let my 7 month old grab some things for me. This is what he came up with:
1 granny smith apple, sliced
1 orange, peeled and sectioned
1/2 cup mango, frozen
2 tbsp ground chia
I blended the greens first and then added apple, banana and mango followed ny the orange and chia.
This was way to sweet for me! I could only drink half and I saved the rest for my husband. I think if I added half an apple and half an orange it would have been better – or more greens :)! I may try to tweak this one late tonight.
And, if you are in the Groton-area, check out our workshop series that is starting this week. This week we will start with Nutrition 101.

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
