I am so happy! I may have encouraged another friend to start drinking green smoothies! Not just anyone…someone, I didn’t think would come over to the green side. He has been jokingly asking me to make him a green smoothie — and today, I did. Delivered to his door. When he finished, he said it was “awesome and he may just have to hit up the grocery store for some greens.” Now, that just made my day! So, what was in this smoothie? Unfortunately, I have no pics to show because I was rushing – yet again – but it was:
1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1 cup chard
1/2 cup pineapple, frozen
1/2 cup mango, frozen
1/2 an avocado
a touch of almond milk
You will notice that I added more greens to my smoothie today. I had a great email from someone gently telling me to up my greens. Challenge accepted. So, I filled my entire blender with greens to the top and blended that down and then added everything else. Didn’t even notice there were more greens. Score. Absolutely delicious.
Tomorrow, I should be back on track with taking pictures and adding a little extra to my posts. It’s been a busy few days for many reasons. One of the reasons was a workshop I ran tonight on Nutrition 101. We had a great turnout and although I was somewhat verbose and kept going on tangents; I think it went well. Next week, I will be having a workshop on stopping your sugar cravings. If you are in the Groton-area, please consider attending – the more the merrier!
Oh…and I did make a smoothie yesterday too — in fact, I made two! How is everyone else doing?

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!!!
